When summer arrives and temperatures rise well beyond room-temperature, hair perfume becomes an absolute must-have. Sure, there are dry shampoos and wave sprays that smell great, but a hair perfume is the real deal for fragrance in strength and variety. Plus, there are times when I don’t want to add excess product, but I want the scent! Oh, and the best part is, hair perfume lasts! Unlike my rollerball, scents made for the strands release it’s scent with each hair-flip or gust of wind. Here are 5 hair fragrances perfect for hot weather, tan skin, and beach days.
1. Sachajuan Protective Hair Perfume
2. Herbivore Botanical x UO Hair Perfume in Apricot
Herbivore Botanical made a hair perfume for Urban Outfitters beauty and the apricot scent is other-wordly. I love how light and fruity this scent is, without smelling like a kid’s shampoo. It’s the LaCroix sparkling water of Hair Perfume; vitamin-rich, mega-moisturizing and organic.
3. Byredo Hair Perfume Gypsy Water
Byredo is the gold standard in the hair fragrance category because they’re delicate enough for hair but still manage to be just as intriguing and intoxicating as regular perfumes. The Gypsy Water scent is the most summer-esque of the collection. Described as ‘the scent of fresh soil, deep forests and campfires which evokes the dream of a free, colorful lifestyle close to nature.’ If that doesn’t sell you on it, I don’t what will.
4. Gourmand Hair and Body Mist in Fleur Monoi
Gourmand Hair Mist in Fleur Monoi is made with gardenia and coconut and smells like stepping off a plane in Hawaii.
5. Fekkai L’Air De St. Barths Hair Fragrance Mist
This St. Barths inspired Fragrance Mist from Fekkai is nice, light, and has a great citrus scent. I keep this on hand for days when I want something less pronounced but that can still mask the scent of sweat and second-day hair.
Pro Tip: If you have super long locks or sensitive skin, spritz the perfume onto your brush or hands instead of directly onto you hair.
