Which TGIN Hair Serum Is Best To Use On Relaxed Hair?

It’s not a secret I’m a fan of TGIN hair products. I use several of them on my relaxed hair. The Sulfate Free Moisture Rich Shampoo is my go-to. I really like the Miracle RepaiRx Hydrating Hair Mask, and the Green Tea Super Moist Leave In, and Butter Cream Moisturizer are some of my favorite moisturizers.

So it shouldn’t be a surprise that I like some of the TGIN hair serums as well. Of the ones that I’ve tried, the Miracle RepaiRx Anti-breakage Serum and the Argan Oil are my favorites (shouldn’t be a secret though because I’ve mentioned them a few times before).

I’ve been using both serums for a while and have shared about them on my IG and Facebook stories. I’ve also mentioned one or both of them in some blog posts but I haven’t done any dedicated post here on the blog about them. That’s about to change.

I looked through all of the hair serums that TGIN has, including the two I use, to see what types of hair and hair conditions they are best suited for so I could share that info with you. If you’re looking for a hair serum stay tuned because TGIN may have one that could work for your hair.


Jamaican Black Castor Oil Serum

What it claims

To help “restore life to dry, damaged hair” and “helps strengthen and re-grow hair.”


Key benefits are

  • Reduces frizz and fly aways
  • Promotes hair growth
  • Hydrates dry strands
  • Seals in moisture for softer, shinier hair


Best suited for

Dry and damaged hair. Those who want to use Jamaican Black Castor Oil on their scalp but want something a little lighter.

It works well as a sealing oil and for hot oil treatments.


My thoughts

I bought this serum once and went back to regular Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO). This was a little too light for what I like to use JBCO for but if regular JBCO is too heavy for you or you don’t like the smell, this could be a good alternative.

The reason this is a lighter JBCO oil is that it’s mixed with other oils - coconut oil and peach kernel oil - as well as a fragrance and biotin.

Tea Tree + Olive Oil Detoxifying Hair & Scalp Serum

What it claims

“Tea tree and olive oil fused together to eliminate harmful bacteria that cause dandruff, dry skin, and itchy scalp while removing excess dirt, oil and sebum from the scalp to promote healthy hair growth.”


Key benefits are

  • Anti-dandruff properties
  • Promotes hair growth
  • Fights bacterial infections
  • Packed with vitamins
  • Moisturizes dry skin and scalp


Best suited for

Those with minor dandruff issues and those who like to oil their scalp.

The main use of this serum seems to be for the scalp but it can also be used as a hot oil treatment on the hair by warming it up.


My thoughts

When I read the ingredient list for this serum I was a little surprised to see that it was more than tea tree and olive oil. There is also coconut oil, peach kernel oil, and a fragrance mixed in. Tea tree oil is the last ingredient which means it has less concentration than the others. That isn’t a bad thing though because tea tree oil is an essential oil and essential oils are very potent and need to be diluted before they are used so they don’t irritate the skin.

100% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil Hair and Body Serum

What it claims

Gives hair and skin the moisture it craves. Thirsty hair is quenched and dry skin nourished. Provides deep penetration and long-lasting nourishment.


Key benefits are

  • Strengthening the hair shaft
  • Preventing hair breakage
  • Reducing frizz
  • Hydrating hair and skin
  • Promoting hair growth


Best suited for

Dry hair that doesn’t have an aversion to coconut oil.

This serum is good to add to hair masks, pre-poos, and leave-in conditioners.


My thoughts

Personally, I think the claims for this oil are a bit far-reaching. Coconut oil can be a good oil for your hair as I’ve mentioned a few times here on my blog, but I don’t think it’s as hydrating as they like to say.

I’m also not sure it will promote hair growth. Perhaps hair retention.

I have passed over trying this TGIN hair serum because it’s straight coconut oil and I can get a larger jar of extra virgin coconut oil from the grocery or health food store for just as much or cheaper.

Argan Replenishing Hair & Body Serum

What it claims

To nourish the hair and leave it feeling soft, shiny, and easy to manage. It’s got lots of uses, is non-greasy, and can be used on the hair and skin.


Key benefits are

Reduces frizz and flyaways
Hydrates dry strands
Seals in moisture for softer, shiner hair


Best suited for

Hair that is prone to dryness or gets weighed down with heavy oils and serums.

It can be used as an overnight deep conditioner, a hot oil treatment, or sealing serum.


My thoughts

This was the second TGIN hair serum I used and it was instant like. At first, I thought it was a pure or mostly pure argan oil serum but it’s got other oils mixed in - coconut oil, peach kernel oil, grapeseed oil, olive oil, kernel oil, jojoba oil - and vitamin E, fragrance, and Hibiscus.

The long ingredient list didn’t turn me off because I could read and understand what is on it and it doesn’t contain anything my hair doesn’t like.

If your hair has an aversion to coconut oil, this is one to avoid because coconut oil is the first ingredient on the list.

Miracle RepaiRx Anti-Breakage Serum

What it claims

Smoothes frizz and flyaways, adds hydration, seals in moisture, and leaves hair feeling soft and strong.

It contains castor oil, coconut oil, olive oil, argan oil, jojoba oil, and peach kernel oil, as well as vitamin e.


Best suited for

Weak, dry hair.

It can be used as a sealing serum.


My thoughts

This serum is similar to the argan oil one except the ingredient list is a bit more extensive with things like marula oil, biotin, papaya seed oil, and rice bran oil just to name a few.

Unless you’re having issues with breakage and weak hair I would pass on this oil and go for the argan one. It is more accessible than all of the other oils as you can find it in more places.

Final thoughts

All of these serums can be used on relaxed hair and could be beneficial depending on the needs or problem areas your relaxed hair has.

While I haven't tried all of the serums I do really like the Anti-breakage one because it's good for sealing in moisture and it does really help with frizz within the first couple of uses.

The Argan serum is also a favorite, though it now comes second to the Anti-breakage serum. This serum can help with frizz but I noticed that it helps with frizz over time versus more immediately. It's perfect if you're looking for a serum that will help with nourishing dry hair and it's also great for a no or low-protein hair regimen.
