Not satisfied with clean hair that ‘merely’ looks luscious, healthy and high-shine? The latest trend taking off in hair care revolves around scent that is sprayed on as a finishing touch when you’ve finished styling.
While many of us have probably wafted our regular (skin) perfumes over our hair in the hope we’ll then leave an alluring trail of scent behind us, the alcohol and other sticky ingredients in them aren’t ideal for hair.
Purpose-designed hair fragrances on the other hand are light and often include treatment properties too. Here are three of my favourites right now…
Shop → Kerastase Le Parfum En Huile, 120ml, $64 (sold only in salons)
Featuring notes of tea rose, blonde wood and musk, along with an extract of myrrh blended in an oil base, this divine hair perfume was inspired by master perfumer, Alberto Morillas and leaves hair feeling soft. Sold only in Kerastase Paris consultant salons.
Spray this on any time your hair needs a little refreshment or luxe UV protection. As well as smelling divine (think Watermelon, Lychee and Edelweiss Flower Extracts) it has hydrating ingredients and anti-static and odour-neatralising properties too, but is safe for colour- or keratin-treated hair.
Hard to find, but worth the search when you’re travelling (or even surfing Amazon), this beautiful product created by cult beauty brand Shu Uemura, uses a camellia oil base to deliver nourishment and shine. But its unique point of difference is its oil pearls.
