Today we will be talking about hair serums. Hair serums are post-wash hair care products that tend to have a light oil-like texture. The main ingredients of these liquids are different compounds of silicone that forms a thin film around hair strands. This way the cuticles of the hair get temporarily smoothened out and hair looks lustrous. The hair serums also make the hair easy to comb and easy to style. Here I am going to present a few top-rated hair serums that are easily available in India. So, let’s read on.
