Hair Serum Vs Hair Oil – Which Does Your Hair Need?

As an Indian, oiling your hair every Sunday has probably been a routine since you were a kid! Your mom or grandmom would sit you down, carefully untangle your hair, apply some fragrant herb filled oil on your scalp and then soak your hair strands in the same oil. You would then take a leisurely bath and that is what kept your hair truly healthy all this time. 

Talk to the modern Indian and many will tell you that they are not really interested in oiling their hair, because it seems like such a hassle; they would rather choose a hair serum, because it tends to be easier to use and doesn’t need all that fuss.

Hence starts the debate hair oil vs hair serum – which is better?

When it comes to hair care, the choice between hair oil and hair serum can be perplexing. Both promise to nourish, protect, and add shine to your mane, but understanding their unique benefits and differences is key to making the right choice for your hair type. Each of them has their own sets of benefits and comprehending those would be the first step to picking what works for you.

Why do you need hair oil?

  • A hair oil can offer deep nourishment, because it can penetrate the hair shaft, providing essential nutrients to the roots and strands. This can result in improved hair texture, reduced breakage, and enhanced overall health.
  • Hair oils create a protective barrier around the hair shaft, guarding against environmental damage, heat styling, and pollutants. Regular use can also help repair damaged hair, leaving it smoother and more manageable.
  • Using a good quality hair oil can also help improve scalp health. Studies have shown that massaging warm oil into the scalp stimulates blood circulation, nourishes hair follicles, and can help alleviate issues like dryness and dandruff.
  • Should you choose a hair oil like Champi Hair Oil, which is a formulation of a combination of natural oils and ayurvedic ingredients, your hair can reap immense benefits. There are ingredients that can keep dandruff at bay, make your hair stronger and healthier from within and beautiful on the outside. 

Is hair serum good for hair?

  • Unlike oils, serums tend to be lighter, which means that you can apply them or use them a lot more regularly. This also makes serums a better option for hair care for people who have really fine textured or already oily hair. 
  • Hair serums are normally prized for their ability to provide instant shine and smoothness. They can help reduce frizz and enhance the overall appearance of your hair.
  • Hair serums often come with heat-protectant properties, making them an excellent choice for those who frequently use heat styling tools. The serum forms a protective layer that shields the hair from the damaging effects of heat.
  • Serums are effective in detangling hair and improving manageability - they make combing and styling easier, reducing the risk of breakage and split ends.

Moonlight Scalp Serum for instance, is a water-based formula, that has been formulated using three extremely powerful hair health revitalizers - Baicapil™, Redensyl™ and Procapil™. In addition to that, we add plenty of other handpicked ingredients, which you can read about here. Regular usage of this serum, can help stimulate hair growth and increase the overall appearance of hair density. While it can reduce signs of hair fall, it can help strengthen hair from within, because it can deeply nourish, soothe and moisturise the scalp.

So, which is better oil or serum for hair?

Are you wondering - can we use hair serum and oil together? The answer is an absolute and emphatic yes! 

The kind of deep hydration and nourishment that hair oil can give you is incomparable, and on the other hand, a serum can help improve overall scalp health. 

At indē wild, we suggest that you not get into the entire hair serum vs hair oil debate; rather you use both, because both can give you their own set of benefits, and the winner in all of this will be your hair! While the hair oil can be your once in a week routine, the serum can be used on a daily basis. 

Every ingredient that has gone into our hair oil and hair serum has been carefully picked; the oil is a truly natural blend of handpicked ingredients from the world of Ayurveda and is a family recipe that has been perfected over several decades. The serum is an amalgamation of not only ayurveda, but also modern science and will work on improving the scalp biome, allowing for a healthier scalp, which will in turn give you better hair. 

When you use both in combination, you can be sure that your hair and scalp will be much healthier and when there is healthy soil and nourishment for your hair, your mane will become longer, stronger and less prone to breakage!
