As grocery and drugstores start to carry more and more luxury hair care brands, we get exposure to brands we might never have tried before. I had never heard of Alagio before my recent vacation. I had carefully packed my normal hair serum in a 3 ounce container for my in-flight carryon. Unfortunately, the pressure made it leak. Thankfully I had it in a baggie. But still… serum everywhere. Ugh. Not to mention I was in humidity-land without a hair serum. Zing!
I headed right to the store for an emergency shopping trip. Since I knew I’d never get my beloved Hana serum locally, I picked up Alagio’s Silk Obsession serum based on ingredients and scent.
The scent is fresh and herbal- quite refreshing for a serum. Performance-wise, Alagio did the trick. It tamed my flyaways without leaving my fine hair greasy or stringy. And it worked well with my flat iron to produce straightness and shine that stayed all day even at the beach.
Granted I don’t like it as much as my Hana serum that came with my amazing new flat iron; but Silk Obsession is now a great backup serum.
Alagio Silk Obsession Hair Serum is $6.49 for 2 ounces at AmericaRx.com or check your local mass market store that carries luxury brands (I found mine at Publix grocery).
Do you ever pick up a new brand randomly or do you usually research or sample first?
