This Bi-Phase Hyaluronic Acid Hair Serum is part leave-in hair conditioner, part hair serum. It features hydrating and luxurious hyaluronic acid, volume-boosting hydrolyzed rice protein, and ultra-light Neossance® Hemisqualane—I am loving working a few pumps through my hair from about the ears down. My ends are pretty dry these days as I am well overdue for a trim, but this serum perks it right up! And, since it’s a bi-phase serum it’s incredibly simple to make while still getting the benefit of both oil and water-soluble ingredients. Let’s dive in!

Today we’re creating a beautiful Dry Argan Oil Hair Mist! This formulation was inspired by some of the argan oil hair oils/serums on the market like ones from Moroccanoil and OGX, and will leave your hair shiny and moisturized. It’s super simple to make (just five ingredients!) and I’ve included instructions to alter the formulation to perfectly suit your hair. Let’s get started!

Today we’re creating an ultra-lightweight Summer Shimmer Hair Oil that is brilliant for adding shine, smoothing flyaways, and adding a bit of sparkle to your locks. The shimmer and scent are completely customizable, and this is so easy to make that you could easily create an entire set of different shimmery hair oils to suit every mood and season 😄

Today we’re creating an ultra-lightweight hair oil that’s designed for hair that’s really not very tolerant of oils (like mine). Some of my favourite-for-hair oils are blended into a silky, fast-evaporating base to create a water-free hair oil that smooths and nourishes hair while leaving it smelling fabulous!

I’ve been having lots of fun with gel-type things recently, and that got me to thinking about hair gels. That led to me wondering why hair gels are almost always focussed on hold. Gels are a great format for delivering mostly hydrous ingredients in an easily steerable manner—we can use them to add lightweight viscosity to products so they aren’t too drooly or runny. So, why not make other hair gel things—like a gelled hair conditioner? A sort of conditioning hair serum in gel form? As you’ve probably guessed, that’s what we’re making today!

With these dry winter days I’ve been finding I’ve been reaching for this fragrant hair serum a lot recently—whenever my hair needs a bit of smoothing, added shine, and general oomph. I’ll run a pump or two through my hair from about the ears down and it leaves my hair smoother, easier to manage, and just generally looking better—without weighing it down. It doesn’t hurt that it also smells fantastic, leaving me walking around in a bit of a rose-scented cloud directly after use (it’s crazy easy to make). If you’ve got relatively fine hair that needs a bit of a kick in the winter, this serum is for you!
