We've all been there before, on day two or three (or even five) after washing, the frizz sets in, and there's a certain hair smell that seems to hang around. If you're like me and have a fine hair type, you know that washing it too much can really wreak havoc. Whether you don't wash your hair super frequently (we're not supposed to!) or if you've spent forever styling it and don't want to mess up all your hard work just yet, a hair perfume can add some necessary hydration and some great fragrance, too, so you'll feel fresh without having to undergo the whole "hair washing" task.
A spritz of hair fragrance mist is a great way to give your hair a little refresh without needing to turn to more dry shampoo or using hair oil or actual perfume (I, for one, will not be using Chanel on my hair). Hair perfume mist exists, and they can actually be pretty nourishing, giving you some added shine, plus making your hair smell amazing. If you aren't sure which type of hair perfume is best suited to your hair type, ask your hairstylist for some recommendations (they know everything)!
