Hair Oil Vs Hair Serum – Which Is Better For You?

There would be a rare few people in the entire world, who would say that they are not interested in gorgeous hair – for most people, their luscious locks are a part of their personality and it is something they consider a part of their identity. Many will also spend an immense amount of time and also money on products that will give them the type of hair that they have always dreamt of. 

Go to any pharmacy or beauty superstore and chances are that you will walk out empty handed and confused; or the absolute opposite, loaded with items that you might never use. From oils to lotions to serums to so much more – these days, there are way too many products and not knowing what each of these does could lead to problems, rather than solutions. 

This is one of the reasons why, at indē wild we like to keep things simple – rather than overloading your vanity and bathroom with a huge range of products, we have combined handpicked and potent ingredients to give you one-bottle solutions! 

Should you come looking for hair care products, you will find it simple as well – there is a hair oil and there is a hair serum. But that is bound to create the whole hair oil vs hair serum debate! There are those who will swear by the benefits of using hair oil and there are those who will sing ballads in favor of using a hair serum. 

But which is better for you and your hair?

Let’s decode the whole hair serum vs hair oil conversation!

A hair oil, as the name suggests is an oil and will by nature be thick and leave a slightly greasy feeling, after application. Certain oils, like our Champi Hair Oil is a combination of several carefully chosen hair oils. 

A hair serum, on the other hand, is generally a lighter formula and can be used post hair wash. Interestingly, hair serums are offered for very specific purposes too, like taming the frizz or making hair tangle free and so on. 

So, how do you make your choice? By getting the proper facts!

Let’s begin with hair oil

  • Deep nourishment: Hair oils are renowned for their deep nourishing properties; they penetrate the hair shaft, providing essential nutrients that strengthen the hair from within. Oils such as coconut, argan, and olive oil are rich in vitamins and fatty acids, promoting overall hair health.
  • Moisture retention: Hair oils are excellent for locking in moisture, preventing dryness and frizz. They create a protective barrier around the hair cuticle, ensuring that your strands retain their natural moisture.
  • Scalp health: Many hair oils come with the added benefit of promoting a healthy scalp. Massaging oil into your scalp stimulates blood circulation, reducing dandruff and promoting the growth of strong, shiny hair.
  • Repair and shine: Hair oils are effective in repairing damaged hair, reducing split ends, and imparting a natural shine. Regular use can contribute to smoother, more manageable hair.
  • Natural ingredients: The natural components found in hair oils, including coconut oil, argan oil, olive oil, and others, are abundant in vitamins and antioxidants that support the health and elasticity of hair.

Moving onto serum in the hair oil vs serum conversation

  • Lightweight and non-greasy: Unlike oils, hair serums are lightweight and non-greasy. They provide a quick fix for frizz and add shine without weighing the hair down. Serums are perfect for those who want a polished look without the heaviness associated with oils.
  • Heat protection: Many hair serums are formulated with heat-protectant properties, shielding your hair from the damage caused by styling tools such as flat irons and blow dryers. This makes serums an ideal choice for those who frequently use heat styling.
  • Instant smoothing: Hair serums are designed for instant results, offering immediate smoothness and shine. They work on the surface of the hair, taming flyaways and providing a polished finish.
  • Versatility: Serums are versatile and suitable for various hair types. Whether you have straight, curly, or wavy hair, a well-formulated serum can enhance the texture and appearance of your locks.
  • Detangling and manageability: Hair serums are effective in detangling hair and improving manageability. They make combing easier, reduce breakage, and contribute to a smoother texture.

Now, this is where our Moonlight Scalp Serum stands apart, because it goes above and beyond your typical hair serum. Procapil, Redensyl, and Baicapil are three extremely powerful hair health revitalizers that are combined into this water-based solution. Regular use of this serum can aid in promoting hair growth and enhancing the appearance of overall hair density. In addition to improving the outward signs of hair loss, it can fortify hair from the inside out by calming, nourishing, and moisturizing the scalp. As a matter of fact, regular use of this serum may aid in new hair growth as well. Additionally, because it is water-based, it absorbs into your scalp quickly and leaves no buildup or residue behind!

Serum vs hair oil – what should one pick?

In case you are thinking that this is an either-or situation, think again! 

Here at indē wild, we recommend using both - the hair oil and the serum because each has specific benefits for you. While the hair oil can become your once-a-week pampering sessions, the serum can be used daily, because you can apply it at night, like a PM serum for your scalp and hair! 

Our hair oil and hair serum are prepared with carefully selected ingredients; the oil is a natural blend of hand-picked elements from the Ayurvedic world, and it is a family recipe that has been developed over many years. Because strong, luscious hair can only grow from a healthy scalp, the serum, which blends current technology and traditional ayurveda, aims to enhance the biome of the scalp to make it healthier!

Using both the hair oil and the hair serum will make your hair and scalp much healthier; you'll see your hair grow longer, stronger, and less prone to breaking. 

So, instead of going into the whole oil vs serum for hair conundrum, just use both and get ready for hair that is healthy from within and gorgeous on the outside!
