Not Another Greasy Hair Serum

Posted on Jan. 30, 2012

I understand why some women (especially those on the oilier side) treat a hair serum like the devil. Unless the eenciest bit is applied, and applied evenly, bad things can happen. Not this time around. Here are a couple of new serums that have something wonderful in common -- Argan oil.

Kerastase Elixir Ultime ($54)  This souped-up serum smells lovely and contains a blend of conditioning and anti-oxidant rich ingredients including Maize, Pracaxi, Camellia, and Argan oils. What's this mean for your hair? No more frizz and lots of fullness and softness.

Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil ($21.50)

I'm all for multi-tasking products, and this utlra lightweight serum, which also contains the hair softening ingredient Argan Oil, can be used 6 ways! 1. as a heat protector pre-blow dry 2. as a shine booster 3. as a softening treatment. 4. as a pre-shampoo moisturizer 5. as a smoothing serum post-blow dry 6. as an overnight conditioner.
