A day filled with the euphoric scent of lilac, hyacinth, and exotic florals can be sensational, thanks to your hair perfume.
Dazzling scents for the olfactory system are like a blessing of healing inspiration that has been heralded throughout the ages. Adding hair perfume to your daily beauty ritual is another excellent excuse to sweeten up your life with natural aroma essences.
In The Beginning
Shakespeare’s verses of Cleopatra’s boat donning perfumed sails announcing her arrival before she graced the shoreline celebrates the persuasion and power of fragrance.
Romans and Greeks believed fragrance was so divine that it was sent from the Gods. Aromatherapy can heal, inspire, activate and persuade naturally, mainly when used from pure sources.
Perfume with Benefits
Hair perfume extravagantly scents the hair and can benefit every strand depending on the formula. Some of the benefits of using hair perfume include brilliant shine, detangling, UV protection, heat protection, de-static effects, lubrication, and delightful scents.

This style of fragrance is similar to body spray however is designed for the hair and can create some appealing results. Non-aerosol mist, sprays, serums, and essential oil blends are available as hair perfumes to drench your locks with daily.
The generic shampoo fragrance on freshly washed hair usually has a short shelf-life; that’s where hair perfume comes to the rescue. Adding hair perfume throughout the day can conceal smoke and dull odors that accumulates on strands. Select clean, cruelty-free, non-GMO hair perfumes so your hairstyle will radiate with purity.

Whether your adorning curls, waves, textured, straight, or extensions, there is a hair perfume that can multitask benefits with a luxurious aroma.
Nourishment for dry and brittle hair happily soaks up perfumed serums and oil blends. Apply a few drops of the fragrance when hair is slightly damp. Alternatively, spritz water onto dry hair and massage into hair ends, and work towards the scalp.
Light mists with essential oils work well with oily hair when misted away from the scalp area. Curls and wavy hair favor products with aloe vera, coconut, and Himalayan salts for defined coils and reduced frizzy flyaways.
Those with synthetic and human hair extensions will find misty fragrance options with the right consistency without causing tangles or heavy build-up. Tip for synthetic extension wearers! Castor oil will usually not break down plastic, depending on the purity of the oil. Look for serums and essential oil blends featuring castor oil.
