Superfood + Vitamins for Touchably Shiny Hair

AG Hair just added a brand-new serum to their roster of Natural styling products and I had to try it! It’s no secret that I absolutely LOVE the Natural line by AG Hair. Anything that’s plant-based and cruelty-free (and performs like a professional hair care product should) is a winner for me.

AG Natural Glow Shine Infuse Serum

The new Glow Shine Infuse Serum is over 97% plant-based and naturally-derived. It provides thermal protection for your blow dry, helps seal and smooth that cuticle, and detangles while adding a ton of shine.

Wanna talk more about plant-based? Well, this bottle of goodness has seed oils from:

  • Black Raspberry: Essential fatty acids and antioxidants – conditions dry, damaged hair.
  • Broccoli: Vitamins A, B6, B12, C and D – great for hair growth and protects from free radicals.
  • Chia: Zinc & proteins – helps to thicken the hair and create new cell generation.
  • Cranberry: Vitamin E – antioxidant, helps rebuild and moisturize the hair.
  • Cucumber: Magnesium, Potassium – You guys know this one. HELLO moisture! Also helps to increase hair elasticity.
  • Pumpkin: Amazing for hair loss. Also great for sealing in moisture.
  • Tomato: Beta-carotene, baby! Strengthens dry, brittle hair.

AS WELL AS:

  • Rosehip oil: Non-greasy oil that will help everything get absorbed into the hair, and not stay on your hands. More essential fatty acids help to renew damaged hair cells and scalp tissue.
  • Abyssinian oil: Also known as “Crambe” – another non-greasy oil. Moisturizing, adds mega-shine and is heat resistant!

These are just a few of the health benefits of these oils. I couldn’t possibly fit them all on a lil’ blog post!

Silicone Free!

This serum is also FREE of silicone! This is an artificial ingredient that often will get added to products so it coats your hair, creating the illusion of smooth and shiny locks – not unlike your fave highlighter that coats your cheekbones! But that kind of shine comes from the product sitting on top of your hair, and in the long run this can cause you more damage from the product building up. The REAL shine we’re looking for should come from nourishing your hair, sealing that cuticle up tight so light bounces off the mirror-smooth surface. With this serum from AG Hair, you aren’t coating your hair in makeup. You’re providing some serious nutrition while firmly closing up that outer layer so your hair GLOWS from the inside out!

She Thicc and Hydrating

Now, a lot of the serums I’ve used before have been less…viscous. *cue childish giggles* The consistency of this serum alarmed me when I first opened it up! It. Is. THICK. But it comes in a lovely glass bottle with a rubber-tipped dropper for easy application. The directions say to use only one drop at first – and they ain’t lyin’. A little bit goes a very long way. My advice would be to start small. If you have thicker, longer hair then apply by adding one drop at a time, and start at your ends.

Pro Tip

If you have issues using oils or serums because they always end up making your hair greasy – DON’T go straight to your roots! Always start at your ends and use less than you think you need. Apply up to 3 inches away from your scalp, working it through your strands in a towel-drying motion.

Doubles as a Treatment

HOWEVER, since this serum is packed full of good stuff, you could also apply it to your scalp as a treatment! The dropper makes for super easy application in this case. Just apply a few drops on your scalp throughout your whole head, massage in, and leave for 20 minutes before washing out.

The Scent

Lastly, you know I gotta talk about the smell with all these super-food oils in this bottle. I wasn’t sure what to expect here with this grocery list of ingredients, but it has a lovely minty, fruity earthiness to its scent that I really love. It’s not overpowering, and that hit of mint is just what I need to get myself going in the morning! (I am NOT a morning person. Ever. Good thing the office is just a short drive away…)

The new AG Hair Glow Shine Infuse Serum is hitting all Chatters Salons across Canada this September. Look for it on the centre units in stores, or online at chatters.ca.
