Does the Activating Serum boost hair volume? Review + Demo! 🥰
Here is how I’ve been using the Collective Laboratories Activating Serum as part of my usual post-wash hair routine!
💁♀️My Hair type/concern 💁♀️
I dyed my hair last summer to a grayish brown and it required 2 rounds of bleaching (to a level 7). I do hair masks very regularly but the bottom 2/3 of my hair is usually pretty dry.
🚿I wash my hair every 2-3 days depending on how much I sweat.
😞Have been worried about hair loss a bit more this year due to stress and health

🧖♀️How I Use It 🧖♀️
I use this as a post-shower serum before I blow-dry my hair in the following steps
-Towel dry scalp
-Comb out any knots
-Section hair for precise application, full syringe for whole head
-Apply and massage for a minute until a slight warming sensation occurs and eases. The serum is very light so it is easy to spread around as I massage it, I do not feel it clinging to hair strands or clumping up. I like to re-apply whatever is left in the syringe to where I part my hair and around my hairline where my baby-hairs are.
✨First thing I noticed is that it provides a boost of volume after my blow-dry, and the volume helps pretty well throughout the day.
✨ A more long term effect I’ve noticed is that my scalp doesn’t get as itchy anymore! Even on day 3 or day 4 hair, where my natural oils make my hair pretty “gross”, my scalp doesn’t feel itchy.
✨Hair loss - I have noticed less shedding since I started using this serum almost every time I wash my hair. See a comparison of my hair-part below! (Both day 2 or 3 hair)
If you haven’t cared for your scalp, now is a good time to start. It has been a stressful year so far so we can all use a little help to prevent stress-induced hair-loss of other hair problems. I highly recommend trying this serum out! Apply apply apply 😉
