A TikTok User Made a Solid Case for Using a Hyaluronic Acid Skin-Care Serum in Your Hair

The concept of hyaluronic acid in hair-care products isn’t a new one. According to cosmetic chemist David Petrillo, when it shows up in shampoos and conditioners, hyaluronic acid binds to the strands and follicles encourage a smoother look and feel and help prevent breakage. But using a straight-up hyaluronic acid serum intended for the skin seems a little strange, no? Not to mention potentially wasteful if it’s not effective.

Apply Moisturizer On Brows To Keep Them Full

Let us remind you that your brow hairs are made of the same structural components as the hair on your head—and just like those strands, they need to be washed and conditioned. The cleansing step feels more intuitive for some reason: Especially if you wear makeup—brow pencil, powder, and the like—you likely spend some time (gently) scrubbing the brows to remove the product.

Asking wedding guests to leave their children at home used to be among the thornier requests a couple could make.

Now, COVID-19 precautions are adding more sensitive appeals to wedding invitations.
