The importance of hair serum & our top 6 picks
Just as we take care to apply a serum to our face, our hair too needs that extra attention that comes from a serum. Designed to make hair shinier, protect against environmental effects and combat dryness, applying a hair serum should be a non-negotiable step your hair-care routine.
Made to be applied to shampooed hair, a serum should be used along the lengths of your hair after conditioning and before blow-drying. Because it gives hair nourishment and moisture, it is not advised to use a serum on greasy hair. It is preferred to use the same serum in the range of your shampoo and conditioner as they are typically designed as a system which works together to help you achieve the hair you want.

The serum boosts the Balmain signature fragrance which leaves your hair smelling like the perfect summer’s day.
While the best way to use this serum would be to apply a bit through damp or dry hair, we love using a couple of drops before washing which helps hair absorb the oil and prevents moisture from getting into the cuticles of porous hair. This is great as it reduces the drying time of your hair!
