Many women have a false impression that hair serums should be avoided because they can flatten fine hair. This is true, for the wrong kind of serum which can leave behind a sticky residue or cause an itchy scalp from serum build-up.

The right kind of serum can be used every day even on thinning, graying, or wispy tresses. A lighter serum smooths and hydrates rough hair cuticles, nourishes the scalp, decreases frizz, and gives you a silkier, smoother mane.

Your hair is built from protein, so in addition to using the right serum every day, make sure to maintain a healthy diet and practice good hygiene — essential components of sustaining your luscious locks into your 40s and beyond.

Choose the Right Kind of Hair Serum

There are many formulas of hair serum on the market but choosing the correct one for you is not as challenging as it may first appear. Some hair serums shield your hair by delivering a coating to the outside of the hair while others feed it from within and protect your scalp.

Serums that Coat Your Hair

Some hair serums coat and protect your hair strands with ingredients that repel water, chemicals, humidity, and UV rays. While these types of serums initially give your hair shine and thickness, they are non-water-soluble, meaning they cannot be washed away with regular shampoo and water. These serums may build up as you apply fresh coats each day.

After several days of continued use, this build-up weights down your hair, making it appear flat and dull. Accumulation on your scalp can cause dryness, flaking, and skin irritation. To cleanse away these multiple coats of serum build-up, you will need to wash your strands with clarifying shampoo.

Clarifying shampoos can only be used a couple of times per week because they contain sulfate surfactants, harsh ingredients used to cleanse your hair from grease, residue, and impurities. Sulfates can unintentionally exacerbate conditions like dry scalp and oily hair and may also damage color-treated hair.

Serums that Condition Your Hair and Scalp

Hair serums engineered to infuse your hair and scalp with moisturizing oils and nutrients to restore your healthy locks are safe enough to use every day. This is because they contain ingredients that wash away with ease and leave no hair surface coating.

Serums designed for aging hair should be non-greasy and fast-absorbing to prevent build-up worries. Some, like Better Not Younger’s Superpower Fortifying Hair & Scalp Serum, disappears into your scalp without making your hair feel sticky and targets aging hair from three angles:

Hair and scalp nourishment — Because your scalp loses nutrients as it ages your hair has difficulty repairing itself. Serums massaged at your hair’s roots can transfer nutrients into your scalp, revitalize your follicles, and fortify new hair growth. Hair and scalp nourishing serum is loaded with vitamins and proteins to imbue your hair with renewed elasticity and vibrance.

Strand repair and protection — This powerful serum also works by mending and protecting aging and brittle hair from within by delivering dynamic ingredients like niacinamide to help restore hair keratin and buoy follicle function. Vitamins and minerals feed your strands and strengthen your hair with each daily dose.

Follicle Regeneration — Better Not Younger’s Superpower Fortifying Hair and Scalp Serum taps into the invigorating power of ginger and caffeine to energize hair follicles and encourage hair growth by increasing your scalp’s blood flow. Fit follicles engender a head teeming with thick, sumptuous locks.

How to Use Hair and Scalp Serum

Serums that coat the hair shaft need to be applied on the hair itself; however, Better Not Younger’s Superpower Fortifying Scalp & Hair Serum is formulated for scalp application at the root of your hair.  Be sure to apply hair and scalp serum correctly for outstanding results.

Applying Hair and Scalp Serum

Each night before bed charge your dropper with 0.5 cubic centimeters of serum and part your hair to reveal your scalp. The lengthy dropper makes it easy to reach your scalp to deposit the serum.

Place one drop at a time directly onto your scalp along your part. Move the dropper around your head, parting your hair as you go, and leaving one or two inches between drops. Once your entire scalp is treated, use your fingertips to massage the liquid gently into your skin.

Leave on Overnight

Leave your hair serum on your head overnight. Because it is formulated lightweight and fast-absorbing you can forgo rinsing or washing it out the next day. There is no residue build-up and it works best with continued daily use.

When Can I Expect Results?

The time it takes to see results depends on the current condition of your hair; however, by nourishing your scalp and hair with daily doses of serum, you will witness noticeably stronger roots in about three to four weeks. With continued use, your hair will progressively become thicker, healthier, and more manageable.

Use Better Not Younger Hair Serum Daily

The wrong kind of hair serum can leave your fine hair flat and frizzy and your scalp itchy and irritated from days of build-up. Breathe new life into your thin brittle hair and leave your scalp feeling refreshed and hydrated by choosing a light, non-greasy serum for your aging hair.

Steep your hair and roots in Better Not Younger’s Superpower Fortifying Scalp & Hair Serum, a non-greasy, wholesome boost of nutrition. It is paraben-free and sulfate-free, making it gentle enough for everyday use. Even color-treated and chemically treated hair will profit from a daily shot of hair and scalp serum. Leave your heavy hair serum behind and treat your locks to a nightly dose of Superpower.

How Can I Clean My Scalp Naturally?

In our quest for shiny, beautiful hair, we put our aging hair and scalps through a lot — we switch from sticky gels to mousses, to sprays, trying to infuse life into our dull, frizzy locks. The more products we use, the more residue is left behind on our scalps. Product buildup can interfere with the natural pH of your scalp, making it impossible to sprout glossy, hydrated locks. Cleaning the gunk and toxin buildup from your scalp unclogs your hair follicles, balancing your natural sebum oils and scalp pH.
