Korean Hair Care Hacks To Nail Your Look

Mask up for extra moisture

Hair masks are the secret to healthy hair. Keep your hair hydrated with nourishing hair masks like Honey, Avocado, Keratin, and Quinoa. Masks are the perfect remedy to deal with dry, frizzy, and damaged hair. Hair masks work like magic to deeply nourish your hair and smoothen your tresses. Fix that damage to soften your hair and boost the strength of your hair. 

Serum-protect your hair

When stepping out is a part of your daily routine, sun damage can be an annoying issue to deal with. The UV rays tend to damage your hair cuticles and will leave you to fight dry and brittle hair. Say goodbye to sun-damaged hair with the Protect Shine Serum

How to use a hair serum?

  1. Take a pump of serum in your hands and rub them together for a few seconds. 
  2. Apply evenly from mid-lengths to the roots.

Expert Tip: Always apply professional hair serum on damp hair for best results.

De-frizz for a softer look

All Korean hairstyles that you come across, require a frizz-free look. If you deal with frizzy hair, it is likely that your hair lacks moisture. Along with regular hair mask sessions and nourishing shampoo washes, go one step further and tame your frizz with the Shampoos & Hair Serums for Frizzy Hair.
