This Silky Camellia Hair Serum is a wonderful combination of a leave-in hair conditioner and an oil serum. It helps reduce frizz, add shine, prevent breakage, and even provides a touch of heat protection along with making your hair smell pretty. A drop or two is more than enough to smooth down fly-aways and perk up dry-looking ends. I’ve designed it to be customizable on a use-by-use basis, so if you happen to need a more potent or more dilute product at any given time, you’ve got it! Its also easy to make and I’ve provided a big list of substitutions and alternatives at the end of the recipe so you can tweak it to use what you’ve got on hand 🙂
This light and luxurious hair serum smooths down flyaways, moisturizes dry ends, and imparts a lovely, light sheen. It smells divine, is absorbed quickly, and packs a punch with just a few drops. It’s the sort of thing that would sell for $40 at a salon, but you know better that that 😉
After I discovered emulsifying wax, the first recipe I wanted to re-vamp was my hair serum and turn it into an ultimate homemade hair serum. I chose to make it an emulsion so I could cut back on the percentage of oils in the recipe, but in the end it didn’t emulsify very well without any beeswax or borax. So, I melted the original batch back down and added a few grams or e-wax, and that fixed it. But now that I knew I could make a formula that was 75% water instead of 50%, I had to give it another go.
Now, not to toot my own horn (ok, I’m lying), but this stuff is great. Not only is it anti-frizz, but it makes brilliant leave-in conditioner/hair lotion. I massaged a fairly healthy amounts into the bottom 6″ of my waist-length hair two nights ago, and my ends are beautifully soft and shiny. And not at all greasy looking!
