The smell of fresh hair is intoxicating. Fruity shampoo infused into your strands, making it feel like you just escaped to the tropics. Delicious smelling hair might not always be healthy for your locks. We explain why, below.
Itâ€™s no secret that hair is great at holding on to scent but there is one thing you should never spray directly into hairâ€¦ perfume.
There is a reason for this madness and itâ€™s a simple one: perfume contains alcohol. Alcohol is very drying for hair, leaving it brittle to the touch and much more likely to suffer from breakage. So if you want to avoid hair that feels like hay, donâ€™t spritz your hair next time youâ€™re applying perfume.
For something just as sweet and much better for your hair, try a hair mist. Theyâ€™re still perfumed but the alcohol content is much lower. So you can spray away! Bonus: because hair is so good at holding onto smell, your mist will last for ages so thereâ€™s no need to keep topping it up throughout the day.
