Anyway, I usually just use hair serums to help pat down my frizz and baby hairs. I thought I'd do a little post on serums and creams I've used in the past and/or am currently using:
Any hair serum user has probably heard of Biosilk. About a few years ago, they decided to change up their marketing strategy and decided to start selling to the public. No more hair salon only sales or try-to-find-a-friend-with-a-cosmetologist-license issues. You can now easily buy Bioslik at your every day store, like Target!
A little goes a REALLY long way with this product. I've made the mistake one too many times of accidentally applying too much and ending up with grease head. Yuck. Also, for those of you who haven't tried it before, the scent is very strong, potentially overpowering. Someone once said I smelled like a hair salon hahaha. It was my first hair product in middle school and I didn't know how to use it at the time.
Their catch phrase is "Reconstruct, Restore, and Shine." This serum smells sooooo good. Almost delectable. Loma Pearatin was my upgrade from Biosilk in terms of hair care. Unlike Biosilk which simply provides a nice shine, Loma Pearatin contains time-released Creatine and Keratin Protein-based serum to continuously reconstruct, repair, and hydrate hair and skin (didn't know it was okay to use it on your skin). It also provides thermal protection and locks-in all haircolor which is great since I color my hair.
One con is that it's difficult to find and pricing varies all over. I originally purchased it when it first came out: ~$10 for 3.4 fl oz. Now I see online prices stating $16 for 12 oz. Shucks.
In terms of frizz and baby hair control, this serum does a fabulous job. I don't have much to say about the reconditioning aspects of Loma Pearatin Serum though since I don't do a lot of damage to my hair but a friend of mine who religiously straightens her hair every single day swears by this serum. She says it's tremendously helped with her dying hair and makes it look so much shinier, healthier, and overall a lot better.

Smells great but I didn't see any noticeable results in my hair. Lack of shine (or maybe my hair is already shiny? :)) and did not help tame any frizz or baby hairs.
Smells like Apples!! Mmmmm. This is my current hair serum and I really like it. I received so many compliments on how shiny and healthy my hair looked the first time I used it. I usually rub a little into my hair after I shower to seal in moisture with the silicone and if I see some flyaways as I'm heading out the door then I can add more then. My pump is broken so sometimes I accidentally pump out too much. Don't do that. As with most hair serums, a little goes a long way so use sparingly so you don't look like a grease head. Doesn't weigh my hair down which is nice.
Darn. I really wanted to like this product. It smells sooooo good and manages to give my hair a nice moist, healthy look but definitely doesn't help with my flyaways. I've read some fabulous reviews about it though. Maybe I just need to apply even more to my hair? I'll give that a try next time and update this post if anything.
So I won't be needing anything new hair serums for a while. I still have quite a few of these bottles left. One hair product I do want to try out is dry shampoos! Sometimes, toward the end of the day, the top of my head can get fairly oily so I've been eyeing dry shampoos since they started becoming popular a while back. Recommendations? :)
