1. It Can Help Tame Frizz and Flyaways

Does your hair poof up the minute you walk outside if the weather is anything less than perfect? We totally feel you. While you can’t change your specific hair type, you can help change the way it responds to environmental elements like humidity and artificial heat. It’s all about finding a hair serum that address frizz and flyways. The L’Oréal Paris Elvvie Smooth Intense Frizz Taming Serum instantly polishes and smooths frizz, strand by strand, while creating a humidity barrier to help block out frizz and lock in shine. This hair serum helps tame even out of control frizz. After shampooing and conditioning with the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Smooth Intense Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Smooth Intense Conditioner, apply 1-2 pumps of hair serum to damp hair and distribute evenly, then style as usual. You can also apply a small amount on dry hair to smooth flyways and add shine.

2. It Can Add Shine

Besides its ability to help tame frizz and flyaways, using a hair serum can also help boost your hair’s shine. And shiny hair is basically the ultimate hair goal, right? The L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Treatment is a lightweight hair serum that instantly transforms dry hair strand by strand into nourished, silky, and shiny. There are a variety of different ways you can use this hair serum: before you shampoo for luxurious nourishment, before styling to control and disciple hair, to polish strands for no frizz and flyaways, and as a lightweight finishing touch for silky softness and luxurious shine. Rub two drops of hair serum between the palms of your hands, then apply evenly through the lengths and ands of dry or wet hair. Pair it with the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Conditioner.

3. It Can Help Nourish Dry Hair

Dry hair can be really annoying to deal with—in fact, when your hair is dry, it can often look dull and lifeless, which isn’t exactly great for your confidence. What can you do? Enter hair serum. The L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Frizz Finish Oil-In-Serum is a lightweight hair serum that can help tame frizz and flyways, detangle, and smooth each strand. It provides humidity protection and delivers a silky finish, luminous shine, and touchable softness without leaving hair greasy. After shampooing and conditioning with the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz Defy Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz Defy Conditioner, apply 1-2 pumps evenly on damp or dry hair from mid-lengths to ends. Style hair as usually—either blow-drying it or letting it air dry. You can apply a small amount to dry hair to condition split ends, tame flyaways, and smooth hair. To nourish dry hair, mix a few drops of hair serum into a hair mask (like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm or L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Renourishing Butter), then style as usual.
