Everyone wants their mane to smell good, especially on those no-wash days. And while it might seem convenient to spritz your strands with your everyday perfume, the high alcohol content that is packed into those luxury fragrances that we love so much can be pretty harsh on our hair. The solution? Hair perfumes. The overlooked but pretty necessary hair product that you may not always use, but should.
The differences between your everyday perfumes and hair perfumes vary, but for the most part, the scents made for your hair are typically a lot less costly than their counterparts, contain less alcohol, and most promise to provide shine and protect your mane. So the next time you find yourself post-workout or leaving a smoke-filled bar and are in need of a scent to pair with your dry shampoo, reach for a perfume made for your strands. Below are a few of our fave hair perfumes that promise to keep our locks looking and smelling fresh.
