Inecto’s Pure Coconut Hair Serum
Hair serums tend to come in quite small bottles and are expensive in comparison to shampoos and conditioners. However, they are a godsend to those of us with slightly frizzy, wavy hair. This product is in a larger than average pack size and is around 1/10 of the price of some of the designer hair serums.
Blend of silicones and coconut oil.
Very little, they all contain a blend of silicones, which have the function of laying the hair cuticle flat so it appears less frizzy and gives a gloss, creates a shield for the hair shaft which would prevent too much moisture absorption (remember Monica from Friends when she was on holiday in a humid climate). Some serums may also contain additional nice ingredients for the hair i.e. keratin, hydrolyzed vegetable proteins.
All serums, due to their silicone blend, will have a high affinity to hair, this particular product contains pure coconut oil, which traditionally has been used for decades by women in the Pacific Islands to protect and nourish their hair from the sun and elements.
Value for money – unbeaten price at £2.19 for a 50 ml product from Savers, TJ Hughes and independent pharmacies, designer hair serums in supermarkets typically cost £11.00 per 100ml
Effectiveness – smoothes frizz and adds shine, makes hair softer, more supple and luxuriant
Pampering factor – nice fragrance, a little goes a long way, acts as a hair treatment in addition
