Take a second to think about all of your favorite parts about getting your hair done at a salon. I bet the scent your hair permeates afterward makes the top five! Who doesn’t love a whiff of something sweet every time you shake your hair or flip it over your shoulder? Your man will love it too, read on for four ways to keep your locks scented without being overpowering.
One of my favorite tricks of all is to spritz a little perfume onto my ends, just a light mist from the ear down. Every time you flip or shake your hair a little bit of your scent will catch the air! Another great trick is to spray some on to your hair brush and comb through.
Scented hair products
It may seem obvious, but the most effective way to get your hair smelling fresh is to skip on unscented products. Dry shampoo is a great way to remedy this, especially on second day hair when you don’t wash it.
Hair sprays are another quintessential scented product. For a final touch, spray a little scented hair spray on the body of your hair to retain volume or on the crown to smooth fly away hairs. Finishing off with a hair spray will lock in scent for hours.
Scented shampoo and conditioner
For an all-day scent, you have to start at the root. Using a scented shampoo and conditioner, preferably the same scent, will really allow the scent to sink into your hair.
Moroccan Oil, Ojon, or Herbal Essences products are great – they smell fresh and delicious without being empowering, and the scent lasts all day!
Keep the heat to a minimum
One way to zap scent and moisture in one blow? Using products that will overheat or damage your hair. A great alternative is to add some heat protection product onto your locks before you style or blow dry. Heat activated products often come heavily scented, and the scent amplifies with heat and will have your hair smelling great all day.
