Whether you want to avoid frizzy hair, or you want to protect your hair from heated styling tools, hair serum is a great product to keep your hair looking shiny, healthy and beautiful.

Read our tips on using hair serum to avoid that oily hair look, and find the best hair serums on the market today!

Use a small amount - Anti-frizz serums are concentrated products and you only need to use a small amount about the size of a dime.

Avoid an oily scalp - You don't need to add the serum to your scalp or the roots of your hair. This will weigh down your hair and will give you a greasy look. Only apply the serum to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair.

Don't use on fine hair - If your hair is really fine, hair serum may not be suitable for your hair. It tends to weigh the hair down and makes it look greasy.

Apply to wet hair - To use serum and style hair that has wave, curl or body, apply a very small amount to wet hair. Then as you blowdry, brush and style your hair so the serum is distributed evenly.

Protect your hair - Hair serums can be used to protect your hair from heat. Use a small amount on damp hair before blow-drying, and before flat ironing your hair.

Brighten up dull hair - Hair coloring, perms, curling iron, hot rollers, hair straighteners and hair dryer can all damage and dull your hair by drying it out. Give your hair instant and long lasting shine with a hair serum. Not only will it help with your frizz problem, but it will add light reflection to dull hair.
