7 Ways to Make Your Hair Smell Amazing for HoursNovember 01, 2019
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 yet subtle, but the key is making it last. Follow these seven tips for sweet-smelling strands that will last all day or all night long.
Rake a leave-in conditioner through your hair 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.
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, because most fragrances contain alcohol, which can damage and dry your strands. Mist Maison Margiela REPLICA Under the Lemon Trees onto your hairbrush and comb through your hair for a refreshing, lemon-y scent.
Shampoos, conditioners and masks that build keratin (a natural protein in the 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.
