Vaporiser du parfum dans ses cheveux : bonne ou mauvaise idée ?

Perfume in Hair: Is This a Good Idea?

To make perfume last, it's usually sprayed on the inside of the wrists, behind the ears or on the elbows. Some people even put perfume directly into their hair to give off a pleasant scent. But is it bad to put perfume in your hair?

Is It Bad to Put Perfume in Your Hair?

Hair shampoos, conditioners, masks, and serums all play their part and do their job. However, the scent emanating from these treatments, while pleasant, is ephemeral. As a result, you may be tempted to spray classic perfume into your hair. In some cases, spraying perfume into the hair is adopted to camouflage the odors of perspiration, pollution, smoke, or frying.

You should be aware that it is a bad idea to spray perfume in hair. 

Perfumes are made up of several ingredients, including alcohol. This active ingredient is quite harmful to the health of hair and scalp, due to its drying properties. It can also cause itching and dandruff on sensitive scalps. Alcohol can also dry out hair fibers. This favors the appearance of split ends and breakage in the lengths.

What’s the Best Way to Perfume Hair Without Damaging It?

To avoid spraying your usual perfume in hair, you can turn to hair mist perfume. Unlike classic perfumes, these formulas are alcohol-free. Instead, you'll generally find water, which is harmless to hair fibers or the scalp. If you have sensitive skin or hair, this type of care can be used without disastrous consequences. However, you need to be vigilant about the other ingredients 

Hair mist perfumes are often variations on well-known fragrances, formulated to be suitable for hair. This type of scented care is distinguished by its format, which ensures a fairly fine spray that melts directly into the hair. It is applied in a simple gesture similar to classic perfuming and requires no rinsing. The spray is applied about twenty centimeters from the hair, to the ends and lengths. As it is a lighter treatment than the perfume, it can be applied generously. The hair mist can easily be combined with other hair care products, such as serums or hair perfume oils.

In addition to hair mist perfume, you can also perfume your hair with treatments based on natural ingredients with fragrant properties. You can turn to flower hydrolats obtained by distillation. You can also opt for vegetable oils that act as both care and fragrance. Such is the case with our dry hair perfume oil with Acai 5% and hibiscus.
