Hair perfume mist
There is a huge presence on social media surrounding body perfume and body sprays and then comes along the hair perfume mist. Another new product to sample and our first thoughts perhaps could be ” Are they necessary?”
Something maybe that hasn’t really been thought of is to spray the hair with a fragrance. Normal everyday perfume has always been adequate. They usually have a fairly strong smell so we have managed to go without anything else on our hair.
A spritz of a favourite perfume or aftershave as we head out of the door is part of many men and women’s routine.
Spraying a bottle of your favourite scent and walking through it mid-air seemed to work just as well. A great tip if you can’t wear scents directly on your skin.
Normal hair sprays have a certain scent to them but these days there are several products available that are specifically used for hair.
Being in the hairdressing trade has seen many a can of hair spray pass through the fingertips.
Normal hair spray does have a pleasant scent as well as doing what it was created for. Holding the hairstyle in place. One of the downsides to normal hair spray is that some brands can leave the hair feeling very tacky.
We want to avoid this. No one likes hair that doesn’t have its own ability to move on a breezy day.
Having the opportunity to explore an added fragrance for hair, I was intrigued as to why we actually need it. I wanted to find out what the benefits were.
Perfumes alone create a fragrance scent that leaves others sending compliments your way and some will ask what scent you are wearing if it’s to their liking.
So surely another layer of fragrance on top of wearing every day perfume would be too heavy?
An insight into hair perfume
Hair perfume mist is a specialised type of fragrance designed specifically for application to the hair. It is a popular beauty product that can help enhance the overall scent of your hair while providing a refreshing and long-lasting fragrance.
They are typically lighter in texture compared to regular perfumes, allowing for a more subtle application. They often come in spray bottles or atomizers, making it easy to evenly distribute the product throughout your hair.
The misting action helps prevent over-application and ensures a more delicate and controlled release of fragrance.
Hair perfume mists come in a wide variety of scents, ranging from floral and fruity to woody and oriental so can choose a fragrance that complements your personal style and preferences.
They are specifically formulated to be gentle on the hair, without weighing it down and often contain conditioning ingredients to help nourish and hydrate the hair.
Additionally, some hair perfume mists may have UV protection properties to shield the hair from sun damage. We know how much damage the sun can do to our skin and hair so this s an important factor that manufacturers have included.
Hair perfume mists are usually applied to dry hair from a distance of 6-8 inches. You can lightly spritz the mist all over your hair or focus on specific areas. Avoid applying the mist directly to the scalp, as it may weigh down the hair or create an oily appearance from the roots.
Mists are designed to have a long-lasting effect. However, the duration of the fragrance can vary depending on factors like the formulation, your hair type, and environmental conditions.
Typically, you can expect the scent to linger for several hours, offering a subtle and continuous aroma. Just like perfume, it can be reapplied during the day for a longer scent.
Some brands offer matching hair perfume mists to their existing line of perfumes, allowing you to layer scents for a stronger overall fragrance. This can be particularly useful if you already use a specific perfume and want your hair to carry the same scent.
Perfume mists have gained popularity due to their ability to refresh hair between washes, mask unpleasant odours, and provide an extra touch of luxury to your overall grooming routine. They offer a unique way to enhance your personal style and leave a lasting impression with a captivating and alluring scent.
Masking other smells
One of the reasons why hair mists may have been created is to place a great product on the market for those who are smokers.
The first place that cigarette nicotine is destined for after it’s travelled to the lungs is straight in front of the smoker and into their hair.
A career in hairdressing has seen many a ‘smoker’ client that has a residue of smoke on their hair, built up over years of smoking.
Not only does it tarnish the hair, especially those who have silver or white hair, but it can turn it a nasty shade of yellow. Sometimes, if the hair hasn’t been treated for the nicotine residue, it can take a long time to illuminate.
It also leaves an unpleasant smell that doesn’t disappear until the hair is washed thoroughly.

Allergies to perfume
Another great benefit for using hair perfume mist is for those who can’t wear perfume on their skin.
Life today it seems, is full of allergies. Hay fever, asthma and eczema are just some of the allergies we face and it seems that every other person has an allergy of some kind to contend with.
Some men and women can’t wear scents as the repercussions are blotchy or itchy skin. As frustrating as this is if you do like fragrances but your skin doesn’t, it’s not worth wearing anything on the skin.
Having a perfume mist that sprays a light scent on the hair would certainly be a great alternative.
We can still feel like they we are wearing a fragrance and can spray throughout the day. The perfect solution to avoiding wearing any scent directly on the skin.
Perfume mist for hair
Why are we not just spraying our hair with our regular bottle of perfume? A few spritz on the skin and a light mist in the air would work.
Well, apart from being an expensive way of using your perfumes if this was to happen regularly, especially when we are inclined to buy designer fragrances, there’s not the same benefits as a mist designed for the hair.
Perfumed hair mists contain vitamins to help strength and protects your locks. So a great reason to start using them, alongside the usual products used to keep our hair in tip- top condition.
It makes a great accessory if you’re going out on a date and there’s a whiff of gorgeous smelling locks as you enter the room. It’s a sure way to impress a new man.
Also, it works as a great added extra if you don’t want to re spray your perfume. Especially those that already have strong fragrance notes. A re spray can be too overwhelming.
There’s nothing worse that being overpowered by scent, especially when you are just about to dine.
