7 hair serums and oils for shiny, frizz-free hair

Schenelle Dsouza
Monsoon is one of the best seasons in India. The pouring rain, cool temperature and the smell of wet mud makes the season absolutely endearing to many. The humidity, however, causes a host of hair problems including frizzy and damaged hair.
While shampoos, conditioners and hair masks help treat hair problems, hair treatment oils and serums are the go-to fix for frizzy hair. These not only tame frizz and split ends but also deeply nourish and hydrate the hair, protecting it from further damage.
With the monsoon season in full swing, here are some of the best hair treatment oils and serums to pamper and protect your hair from harsh humidity.
