If you like being in the sun but hate the humidity, check out these serums for your summer arsenal.

Most curlies and coilies have a love/hate relationship with silicones. They can weigh down your hair and even create buildup. I tend to steer clear of them, but there are times when they are necessary and come in handy. Hair serums are silicone-based products that will sit on top of the hair as opposed to oils that penetrate the hair shaft. Some of the serums in this list are silicone free and alcohol free so don't dismiss the list quite yet.

The variety of serums has increased so don’t think they all do the same thing. Some are for making your hair shiny while others are for protecting your hair when you apply heat. They even have some that protect your hair from the sun’s UV rays and from humidity. They protect in various ways and they will make you rethink your reasons for steering clear of silicones. Check out these serums for protecting your hair during the summer.
