Chemical-free hair care brand The earth Collection has come up with a potent range of hair serums to take care of all your hair woes. The new range of serums promises to shield the hair against dryness and dullness and also helps maintain its natural sheen and lustre. Non-greasy and weightless there are anti-frizz, sun protection and pollution shield serums and you can take your pick according to your type. The anti-frizz one is especially useful during the winters, we find. Rich in jojoba, argan and chamomile, the serum helps smoothen the hair and prevents knots and tangles to a great extent.
