There’s nothing quite as alluring as leaving a head-turning fragrance trail behind you. But sometimes, spritzing on a perfume, or even a lightweight eau de toilette, can give you too strong of a scent. Deeply fragrant hair, on the other hand, gives you an all-over aroma that’s sexy but subtle. The trick is making it last. Follow these seven tips for lovely smelling locks that will last all night long!
1. Spray Perfume on Your Hair Brush
If you’re not planning on using a ton of product, styling your hair with a perfume-spritzed hair brush is a great way to infuse it with fragrance. It’s also better than spraying perfume directly onto your hair. Most fragrances contain alcohol, which can damage and dry your strands.
2. Soak Your Strands in Shower Gel
While you’re giving your body a cleansing scrub in the shower, saturate your hair with body wash. Kiehl’s Musk Shower Gel works great for this trick. It has a rich, thick scent that will linger in your locks for hours.
Slather your locks with a leave-in conditioner and let it work overnight. Pick one that’s rich, nourishing and formulated for daily use, like Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Oil-In-Cream. Apply it to your towel-dried hair, then wrap it in a sleeping cap and head to bed. When you wake up the next morning, you’ll have incredibly fragrant hair that will stay scented all day long!
7. Try Keratin-Building Hair Care
Shampoos, conditioners and masks that build keratin (a natural protein in skin, hair, and nails) are especially fragrant. And because these products’ properties continue to work after they’re applied, the scent stays put. Try the Matrix Biolage KeratinDose line, which will lock in fragrance while it strengthens your strands.
