Hair perfumes are just that, a hair fragrance. They are not just a way to disguise an unpleasant scent or add a luxury. Although hair perfumes work the same as traditional fragrances, they often contain extra ingredients that soften, moisturize, texturise, or add shine to your hair. They can be used as a replacement for dry shampoo by absorbing oil and adding a fresh fragrance to hair. You can also use these products to prevent frizz and protect your hair from the harmful UV rays. This is a priority for anyone who enjoys spending their day outdoors.
Your hair acts as a natural diffuser and can carry scents like the scent of shampoo or conditioner. The scents you are exposed to through your hair’s natural movement will be dispersed throughout your head.
You can make your own homemade alternatives using essential oils and ingredients such as aloe vera, jojoba oil, and witch hazel. Chanel, Dior, and Jo Malone are all following the hair perfume trend by creating matching hair scents for their signature scents.
You should avoid drying your hair when you use hair perfumes. Hair fragrances can contain drying alcohols. Overuse of these perfumes could cause hair damage, particularly if hair is prone to breaking or has undergone a chemical change.
Here are 10 multifunctional hair perfumes that will make your hair scrumptious, from Sachajuan’s fruity formula to Byredo’s bergamot-infused mist to Sachajuan’s fruity formulation.
10. Sachajuan Ocean Mist $39.
This mist will make your hair feel like you just spent the day at a beach. It adds volume to your hair and defines natural curls.

7. OUAI Wave Spray $19.
This hair spray by OUAI is different from other salt sprays and wave sprays. It’s formulated using rice protein, which will keep your hair in place without causing any dryness or crunch. This hair spray is ideal for people who want to give their natural curls more volume and texture. The OUAI version does not have the salty smell found in other beachy-hair sprays. The OUAI version has subtle notes of lemon, coconut and white musk.

Gucci’s luxury hair spray features the original scents of tuberose, sambac jasmine and rangoon creeper. It creates a light mist that spreads evenly throughout your hair.
One reviewer stated: “I love the way this product gives me just enough fragrance to give someone walking past me a double take. Not too strong, just right!” I was left wondering “What is she wearing?”
5. Diptyque Eau Rose Hair Mist, $70.
This Diptyque hair perfume is enriched with camellia oil and a nourishing formula to keep hair moisturized, hydrated, and protected from the elements. This scent is an updated version of Diptyque’s Eau Rose EDP fragrance, but it is still sweet and airy. To ensure that your hair absorbs the spray well, it is best to use this mist after you have rinsed with cold water.
4. Byredo Gypsy Water Hair Perfume, $87.
Luxury company Byredo offers a range of well-loved and elegant fragrances. Now they have three products that complement their signature scents. Gypsy Water hair perfume leaves your hair silky and nourished with a light covering. It has earthy notes of vanilla, lemon, pepper and bergamot.
One reviewer wrote: “I love this shizzle. When your hair gets a little spongy after washing it, spray it on. Everyone always compliments how wonderful my hair smells. And Byredo makes the best hair fragrances!
3. Chanel No. Chanel No.
This Chanel product is a feminine hair fragrance that features notes from their signature scent. It will leave your hair soft and smooth.
Micha Ramsay left this review on Beauty Crew. “If you can’t leave your house without your favorite spritz of Chanel, then this product is for you!” You can use this product sparingly, as we want it to last! Apply the product to your hair and you’re good to go!
2. Dior Miss Dior Hair Mist, $66.
The award-winning Dior hair perfume promises a strong scent that will leave your hair feeling and looking fresh. The same notes of patchouli, mandarin essence and rose are familiar to those who have tried the Miss Dior EDP. This hair spray is perfect for daily use, and can be used as a substitute for your regular perfume. This hair mist is not like other hair perfumes. It’s main ingredient, water, works to nourish and moisturize instead.
Rachel, a One Beauty Crew reviewer said that this is her favorite hair spray. The scent is not too sweet, lasts longer, and it’s one of my favourites. This is great if you don’t like spraying perfume all over your skin on hot days but still love the smell of perfume. I find that it lasts longer in summer. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys great smelling without it being too strong. It is also a bit more expensive, but it is definitely worth the investment.
1. Sachajuan Protective Hair Perfume, $75.
Sachajuan Protective Hair Perfume can be used for a variety of purposes. It can hydrate, nourish and freshen your hair. This hair perfume is a fruity blend of peach, lychee and rose. It also helps to repair damage caused by keratin or silk oils. The product includes UV protection and anti-odour technology. This uses citrus oil extracts to capture and break down odour molecules, leaving hair fresh and healthy. Sachjuan’s hair perfume is strong, but not overwhelming and can be used to replace your regular fragrance.
