Keep It Luxe: Hair Perfumes That’ll Make Your Tresses Feel Expensive!


We all deserve a little pampering and a whole lot of care especially at a time when we’re all locked inside our houses and venturing out seems dangerous and unnecessary. Since everyone’s hair salon appointments are postponed indefinitely, taking matters into our own hands seems like the only option. Remember how amazing your hair smelt every time you walked out of the parlour after a blow dry (it feels like ages ago, I know)? So, to recreate that smell we thought we’d introduce you to the one product that’ll change your hair routine: hair perfumes. 

Walking past someone smelling amazing in the mall or having bae compliment how great your hair smells leaves a long-lasting impact. Good smelling hair is undeniably appealing and a simple hair flip can cause you to feel so great about your day. So, hair perfume sprays are here to save the day. 

What Are Hair Perfumes?

Hair perfume for women


While you may have never thought about needing this product until now, hair perfume sprays are life-changers. They are basically a form of mists and oils but with a changed formulation for hair. They are a great way of smelling like a million bucks but on a budget. Not to mention, a great way of keeping your unwashed hair smelling fabulous. Which is great if you’re juggling work with a hundred other daily chores and are in short supply of ‘me’ time. 

Now, while reading this, we’re sure you’re thinking why you can’t just use regular perfume in your hair. Well, you could but traditional fragrance formulas are mostly loaded with alcohol and that’s terrible for your hair. Dry hair, split ends, rough hair- this just enhances all that. Hair perfume, on the other hand, doesn’t damage strands because its formula is completely different. It’s lightweight and conditions hair too. It actually covers the hair in an invisible veil and leaves it shiny and hydrated.

We’re sure you must be having some pertinent questions on hair perfumes and we sit to answer them.

Is it okay to put perfume on your hair?

This is probably the worst thing to do to your hair even if it feels like the easiest way to go. As we mentioned earlier, perfume tends to dry out your hair and steal the shine away from it. Hence, hair perfumes are the best solution. You can also use hair mists and oils so that your hair is nourished and smells great.

Who should wear hair perfume?

While anyone can wear hair perfume, it’s more suggested for people who don’t shampoo their hair every day and do it a couple of times a week. Hair perfume is a great way of keeping second and third-day hair shiny and smelling nice. People who otherwise have an oily scalp and dry ends can really benefit from hair perfumes because apart from the smell, hair perfumes also keep the shine intact.

What’s the difference between regular perfume and hair perfume?

The difference between regular perfume and hair perfume is the amount of alcohol content in the two products. We all know that perfumes contain a lot of alcohol and that’s why they tend to disappear if the bottle is left open. Hair perfumes don’t have that because they specifically target the hair. While each hair perfume differs, they usually have a mix of oils and serums that work really well from protecting hair against sun damage and pollution.

What’s the difference between dry shampoo and hair perfumes?

From the sound of it, hair perfumes sound like dry shampoo. However, the key difference is how they react to different kinds of hair. Dry shampoo is mostly used for oily hair to soak up excess oil from the scalp and hair while hair perfumes are often made with oil and add shine to the tresses. Dry shampoo works best for people with oily ends while hair perfumes and hair mists are more like texturising spray for dry hair.

So what are you waiting for? Get, set, spray and feel like you totally own the world.
