TikTok users have been applying Hyaluronic Acid Face Serums on their hair to see if it will help reverse damage. Hyaluronic Acid is known to attract water to the skin’s surface, so TikTok users have been experimenting to see if it will do the same to the hair
So…does it work? The answer is no! The strands of hair that are past the scalps surface are dead, so any damage to the hair has now taken place. Hair masks and topical treatments only give temporary improvement; they work by coating the hair strands to add strength between the bonds of the hair molecules, which can help reduce breakage.
“Applying Hyaluronic Acid to the hair strands cannot reverse damage, but needling Hyaluronic Acid and other growth factors into the scalp can help with hair growth and texture. It can help stimulate scalp circulation and stimulate dermal papilla to encourage growth factors” says DrMediSpa aka Dr. Munir Somji,
