Hair serum contains natural ingredients. If you are thinking of using it, then check whether it contains any chemicals. Otherwise it can cause rashes, allergies or itching. Let us tell you that sometimes silicone based hair serums clog the pores, which can cause irritation on the scalp.

Because serum contains water-like silicone, which easily goes into the scalp and hair, so if your hair serum contains silicone, apply it only on the hair, not on the scalp. If you want, you can use herbal hair serum, these are more beneficial. Make sure to include serum in your hair care.
