As a finishing touch – If you have dry hair troubles and leave-in conditioners aren’t doing the job, an instant shine and smoothing serum is your BFF. Smoothing serums are also one of the most effective ways to manage your hair in humid climates. My recommendation for a go-to serum is the new L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Serum as it helps give an instant nourish to dry and frizzy hair. Take 3-4 drops of serum on the palm of your hand and rub it well to make it warm. Now, start applying serum to the back of your hair first and then come to the front and midsection of the hair so your hairstyle stays intact.

Before a blow dry – Before attempting a blow dry at home, it’s a good idea to pre-treat your hair with heat-protecting serum. Depending on your hair length take two to five drops of the serum in your palm and rub it well. If you have fine hair and wonder why it always struggles to hold a blow dry, I recommend using the L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Serum which is enriched with a luxurious blend of 6 precious floral oils. This serum is specially curated for hair of all textures and is the perfect choice for a styling aid. The lightweight and non-greasy formula transforms the hair texture from the very first use, delivering extraordinary nourishment and protects the hair from heat as well.

Effortless Styled Hair at Home: With staying indoors, we all are on a lookout for chic updos for our zoom calls. You can try out a sleek wrapped ponytail which is perfect for your office calls as well as your zoom parties. To accomplish this look, untangle your hair with the help of Extraordinary Oil Serum. Take a couple of drops and apply it the whole way across the length of your hair. Put your hair in a tight pony; take a strand from the ponytail and fold it around the hair and then tie it with a rubber band. Set up those strands of the baby hair with a tiny bit of the hair serum, and voila you’re ready!
