Scent-sational hair fragrances

While dry shampoo has become a beauty staple, it can sometimes lack the scent of freshly washed hair. However, hair perfume has stepped into the breach, with many more beauty brands adding scents to their offerings. And apart from vanity and its ability to deal with post-gym hair, there are other compelling reasons to give it a whirl. Here’s the science.

Hair has a far bigger surface than the body which means there is far more available to work against odour, and to distribute the scent to the surroundings.

With our days often ending with a sweaty workout, a hair fragrance is really an indispensable addition to your post-gym beauty routine for freshening up the look and smell of your hair.

As well as dispensing with bad odours, the hair formulas available can also help tame frizz, control static and enhance shine, and come in different strengths to suit your mood.

Kerasilk, Goldwell's premium hair care range has launched a range of hair fragrances which are not beautifully scented for hair, but also deliver some much-needed gloss to dull locks.

The four luxuriously packaged, non-drying fragrances which have their own distinct aromas, ranging from the exquisite oriental notes of its Control fragrance, combined with a soft woody base, to a contrasting blend of patchouli, magnolia and jasmine with base notes of amber and tobacco in the Reconstruct scent.

If you’re in need of revitalising, the Repower hair fragrance’s uplifting notes of delicately blended freesia and lily combined with citrus top notes is a fresh, lively scent.

For those who like subtle feminine scents, the Color scent is bursting with rose notes and soft hints of cedarwood and musk.

Other brands have been quick to release their own hair scents. Toni & Guy Illuminating Hair Perfume has created a fresh citrus fragrance, which promises to add shine to dull locks.

While label.m Hair Perfume is a luxurious blend of hero product argan oil with a feminine floral fragrance. The oil softens and shines, whilst the clean scent of citrus blossom, rich woods and white florals leave a subtle fragrance that should last all day.

And for those who aren’t keen on over-powering fragrances, Frederic Fekkai’s Rose Fraiche is crafted with rose notes, to lend hair a delicate powdery floral scent plus shine, which also helps to prevent static. A hair fragrance will leave hair with a lovely freshly washed feeling and its beautifying properties will leave tresses shiny, silky and smooth to the touch. Simply spray through the hair after styling and top up throughout the day.
