I've been meaning to talk about a few hair serums for some time. If you've been reading this blog for any period of time you'll see these photos are from when I lived in Montana over two years ago. I don't know why I never got around to talking about these hair serums. So here we go.

L to R: ORIBE Split End Seal, Leonor Greyl Serum de Soie Sublimateur, ORIBE Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream:

I started with ORIBE's Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream first. It's a heavier style glossing serum/cream. It is lighter weight than the original Supershine cream. This will make your hair glossy and sleek. It leaves a bit of a sticky, heavier feel behind. That's the main reason I stopped using these types of glossing serums and go for lighter style serums now. While $52 is pricey you do get a large 5 oz tube which will last a long time as you only need a touch.

Next I grabbed ORIBE's Split End Seal. This is a lighter style serum. It absorbs almost fully just leaving behind hydrated ends with a hint of shine. I thought this was a pleasant serum. It was light and just enough without being as heavy as Supershine Light. I never used this everyday so it's hard to say if everyday use really does reduce split ends as it claims. For $48 for 1.7 oz it's a bit on the high pricey end for a hair serum. Both of the ORIBE serums have the traditional ORIBE scent which is pleasant and light.

Lastly I grabbed Leonor Greyl's Serum de Soie Sublimateur. Though it looks thicker in texture than the other two, it's actually pretty light. It hydrates with a light glossy sheen that absorbs fairly well. I liked this one the most of all of them. It has more of a natural hair hydration feel and less of a slippery silicone feel like the other two ORIBE serums. Leonor Greyl is a French brand so her stuff is pretty highly fragranced which I don't like. However, this serum isn't scented that strong. It's $46 for 2.5 oz.

All three of these serums are luxe and high priced for what they are--a hair serum. If you feel like an overpriced hair serum, Leonor Greyl is my pick of the three. I find myself using more hydration sprays lately than serums.
