Hair Oil Vs Hair Serum – Is There Really A Debate?

Imagine this – you are standing in your local pharmacy or beauty superstore and you are wondering whether you should buy a bottle of oil, or should you invest in a bottle of serum. Or imagine this; you are on the indē wild website and you are trying to decide whether you should pick the Champi Hair Oil or the Moonlight Scalp Serum. You are reading up on the benefits, but there is a confusion in your mind - hair oil vs hair serum; which should I choose, which would work better for me and can I use them together?

Hair oil vs serum – Is there really any debate?

There are some people who are extremely in favour of hair oiling, because they feel that there are ample benefits to be reaped and they are not wrong. 

Then there are some people, who feel that a serum works so much better because it is formulated with the intention of nurturing better hair and they are not completely wrong either. 

And therein lies the debate – which is the better choice for your hair!

Let’s start with hair oil

  • Deep nourishment: Hair oils are formulated to penetrate the hair shaft and nourish it from within. They provide deep hydration and essential nutrients to promote overall hair health.
  • Scalp benefits: Many hair oils are beneficial for the scalp. Regular scalp massages with oil can improve blood circulation, reduce dryness, and address issues like dandruff. As a matter of fact, you can read our blog on how a scalp massage can improve your hair from within
  • Natural ingredients: Hair oils often contain natural ingredients such as coconut oil, argan oil, olive oil, and others. These ingredients are rich in vitamins and antioxidants, contributing to the health and strength of the hair.
  • Repair and protection: Hair oils create a protective layer around the hair strands, guarding against environmental damage, heat, and styling stress. They can also help repair damaged hair, making it smoother and more manageable.

Should you pick our Champi Hair Oil, you get the additional benefit of choosing a hair oil that is a true powerhouse. Not only does it have multiple hair oils including coconut, caster, almond and Indian argan, it also has ingredients from the world of ayurveda, which are recognised to improve hair texture and strengthen hair from within, reducing hair loss.

Now the hair serum

  • Instant shine and smoothness: Hair serums are designed to provide immediate shine and smoothness to the hair. They often contain ingredients that coat the hair shaft, reducing frizz and enhancing its appearance.
  • Lightweight formula: Serums have a lightweight and non-greasy formula, making them suitable for individuals with fine or oily hair. They don't weigh down the hair, and a small amount is usually sufficient for the desired effect.
  • Heat protection: Many hair serums come with heat-protectant properties, acting as a shield against the damage caused by heat styling tools. This makes them a valuable addition to your routine if you use such tools regularly.
  • Detangling and manageability: Hair serums are effective in detangling hair and improving manageability. They make combing easier, reduce breakage, and contribute to a smoother texture.

 When you choose the Moonlight Scalp Serum, you are going beyond any ordinary hair serum - this water-based formulation has been made with three incredibly potent hair health revitalizers: Procapil, Redensyl, and Baicapil. Using this serum on a regular basis can help promote hair development and improve the appearance of overall hair density. It can lessen the visible symptoms of hair loss, but because it gently nourishes, calms, and moisturizes the scalp, it can also strengthen hair from the inside out. And because it is water based, it gets absorbed into your scalp within minutes, leaving no residue and causing no buildup! 

Hair serum vs hair oil – what to pick?

Still wondering whether you can use oil and hair serum together? 

We say yes! 

While a serum can help to improve the general health of your scalp, hair oil offers an unmatched level of deep hydration and nourishing. 

At indē wild, we advise utilizing both hair oils and serums, as each can provide unique advantages to you. The serum can be used every single day, while the hair oil can be used just once a week. 

Our hair oil and hair serum are made from carefully chosen ingredients; the oil is a family recipe that has been refined over many years and is a totally natural blend of handpicked ingredients from the Ayurvedic world. The serum, which combines modern science and ancient ayurveda, will strive to improve the biome of the scalp to make it healthier, because strong, gorgeous hair will grow only from a healthy scalp! 

Your hair and scalp will be lot healthier when you utilize both the hair oil and the hair serum – you can watch your hair become longer, stronger, and less prone to breaking. 

So, rather than getting into the whole serum vs oil for hair, just use both and enjoy the fact that it will be your hair that will ultimately come out on top!
