[REVIEW] Etude House Silk Scarf Hologram Hair Serum

It’s a basic human tendency to never be completely satisfied and content with what one has. The grass always seems greener on the other side. And one huge example is hair texture. No one wants to have super frizzy hair. It’s something that some of us are more prone to than others, and I’m in the frizzy hair camp.

The most important for me is hydrating my hair. My hair is always dry when it starts to frizz, regardless of how much humidity is out there. So, if you’re fighting the frizz, be sure to use an intensive hydrating treatment!

I bought this Etude House Silk Scarf Hair Serum for my frizzy and smooth hair at Stylekorean.com for $6.24. I used this hair serum after blow dry and a little touch in the end of hair with light hand. For my opinion this treatment is good for people who find that oil treatments are too heavy for their hair.

Description:
Specially formulated with oil complex and floral scent, this concentrated essence coats split ends and delivers shine and long-lasting moisturizer,
leaving your hair instantly looking healthier, silkier, and smoother.

The packaging:
The plastic bottle with a pink-transparent, it’s super catchy and girly. The design of bottle is pump with a cap. It’s a travel-friendly packaging, so you don’t afraid in case spilling everywhere in your bag. At the back there’s a description written in korean. The written Maybe about the ingredients and how to use.

The scent:
It has a nice flowery, floral scent that’s not too strong. The scent will go off slowly after a few hours.

Ingredients:
CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, DIMETHICONOL, C12-15 ALKYL BENZOATE, CAMELLIA JAPONICA SEED OIL,HELIANTHUS ANNUUS (SUNFLOWER) SEED OIL, MACADAMIA TERNIFOLIA SEED OIL, ARGANIA SPINOSA KERNEL OIL, FRAGRANCE

Directions:
Distribute evenly throughout clean, towel-dried hair, concentrating on the ends.

Experience and Conclusion:
I enjoy using this. It glides effortlessly, leaving my hair soft and somewhat more shiny than before. However, it’s greatest quality is that it smells fantastic, although the scent is not as strong as I would have liked. Ingredient-wise, this product contains two of my favorite hair oils: argan oil and macadamia nut oil, both of which are known for their hair nourishing and repairing properties. This hair serum is too soft in consistency to tame after-shower fluffiness immediately, but works well when you’ve slept in it. It doesn’t catch all flyaways, but it does decrease the frizz considerably, which is always nice. Personally, I don’t think this oil does much for repairing my hair by any other means than preventing moisture loss. However, I might be judging it too soon as I’ve been using this for a months only(and not every day, either). The ingredients argan oil, macadamia oil and tsubaki oil are promising!

The situation calls for a brief disclaimer. Please note that no essence or serum will save your hair from split ends. While this product may delay breakage, it is, unfortunately, inevitable. Due to environmental damage such as pollution, wear and tear, styling, heat and UV rays, pillow damage, etc, and also vitamin and mineral deficiencies or medical conditions from within the body, hair will still break, fall out or split. Thusly, when looking for a hair serum, it’s wise to consider active ingredients that will work well with your hair (for example: coconut oil strips hair of color dye, but, in the case of this product, argan oil works extremely well for my hair). The fragrance is another important thing: is it something you will be able to tolerate well, or perhaps even like? However, most importantly, does it contain irritants or hair-breaking ingredients? For instance, it’s not wise to wear oil on your hair and skin if you’re going to spend a lot of time in the sun (you wouldn’t want to fry your hair). Does it contain heavy silicons like cyclomethicone that coat your hair and cause product build-up? Does it contain mineral oil that will block your pores when your hair comes in contact with your skin? And so on.

That all said, this little serum works great. It’s easy to remove with just one wash and a little goes a long way, but I would recommend washing your hair in the evening and applying this before bed. For me, it is best applied to dry hair, not merely towel-dried as the directions suggest, simply because oil and heat does not go well together. It is a good essence for people just getting started with hair serum, as an introduction for the simplicity of the ingredients, or for oily hair as it is rather thin in consistency and light in texture. I would buy this again unless I find something better (perhaps a little more hydrating).
