There is something very alluring about heavenly-smelling locks. And in fact, your hair has the ability to hold scent for longer than your skin – namely because the strands are super absorbent – so it seems only apt we scent our tresses with a spritz of eau de parfum too. The problem is, most perfumes are alcohol-based, which can dry out your hair beyond belief.
This is where hair perfumes comes into play. While distilling a beautiful aroma, they also provide a boost in hydration, an intense hit of nourishment and glossy sheen. The result? An ultra-shiny head of hair that smells AMAZING.
Here are a few of our favourites for summer…
Clean, fresh and feminine. Blanche by Byredo is inspired by founder Ben Gorham’s perception of the colour white and leaves a nourishing, luminous veil of rose, peony, violet and blonde woods in its path.
Byredo Blanche, £37 at Byredo
Is it a fragrance? Is it a protecting spray? Well, it’s actually both. This super-light and misty formula not only boosts shine, but offers UV protection too – so it’s perfect for the upcoming sunshine. The fruity floral scent is a delicate composition of rose, peach and crisp green apple over a base of white musk and cedarwood.
SACHAJUAN Protective Hair Perfume, £40 at Bath and Unwind
Oribe’s signature scent in hair perfume form. Refresh your locks with the aroma of jasmine, zesty bergamot and sandalwood – all while cutting out any static and protecting against harmful UV rays which can leave your tresses super dry.
Oribe Côte D’azur Hair Refresher, £21 at SpaceNK
This light mist smells like a rose garden mid-summer. It leaves your locks with a dewy, floral aroma and the most enviable silken shine.
Percy & Reed Eau my Goodness Shine & Fragrance, £17.50 at ASOS
