Words: Emily Venables
Perfume makes the perfect finishing touch to your beauty routine; it can make you feel more confident, boost your mood, and even trigger fond memories. Now, how many of you spray your signature scent directly into your hair in the hope, it will last longer? If so, you could be doing more damage to your hair than good! This is because perfume contains a high concentration of alcohol, which can dry out your hair, irritate your scalp and even cause flakes or dandruff.
If beautifully perfumed hair is part of your everyday routine, then there are a few ways in which you can still leave a scent in your hair, but without causing damage to your locks.
Spray scent into the air
The first option is to spray your perfume into the air and then walk through it. Using this method, the scent will settle on your hair instead of saturating it when you spray your bottle up close, therefore limiting the impact of the alcohol on your hair.
Perfume your hairbrush
You can also try spraying your perfume onto your hairbrush and then comb your hair. This will leave a beautiful light scent throughout your strands, evenly distributing the fragrance as you brush.
Try a hair mist
These first two options will leave you with a soft and subtle scent, but if you prefer something more substantial that makes more of an impact, why not try a body or a specially formulated hair mist? A hair mist will not only provide fragrance, but it is also often formulated with additional hair-loving benefits, such as hydrating properties, that work with your hair and not against it.
