The Best Hair Fragrances

Perfume isn’t just for your skin. Hair fragrances are becoming more and more popular thanks to their nourishing and gorgeously scented properties.

Have you ever noticed that when you go to wash your hair in the morning, you can still smell its fragrance from the day before? This is because hair is super absorbent. More absorbent than your skin even, making it a great place to apply perfume. As it holds onto fragrance more, it makes sense to apply it here for a scent that lasts all day.

Why Use Hair Fragrances?

Unlike perfumes, hair fragrances nourish and condition the hair at the same time as fragrancing them. They contain ingredients such as Fruit and Nut Oils to hydrate and moisturise the hair, whereas traditional perfumes contain ingredients that will cause hair to become dry and damaged.

If you want your hair to smell beautiful, always use a hair fragrance in place of your regular perfume to ensure your locks feel as good as they smell.

Our Favourite Hair Fragrances


This Dry Oil from Lancôme can be applied to both the body and hair, which makes it a great multipurpose oil. If you are a fan (like me) of the original La Vie Est Belle fragrance, then you will absolutely love this. It makes hair smell divine, and leaves the scent lingering all day.

This might not be technically classed as a hair fragrance, but its gorgeous scent certainly perfumes hair. It smells of summer flowers and vanilla, making it the perfect scent for the warmer weather. The golden shimmer also adds radiance and shine to your locks, which is perfect if they are in need of a pick me up.

If you are searching for a luxurious hair perfume, then this might just be the one for you. The Balmain hair line is fragranced with a flirty and feminine scent, but this Hair Silk Perfume takes it to another level. It also contains Silk Protein and Argan Oil to nourish and condition the hair, and leave it feeling as healthy as it smells beautiful.

This fun scent is perfect for the warmer weather! It's clean and fresh fragrance is made up of Citrus Fruits and White Flowers, while it's also fortified with Omega's 3,6 and 9 to protect the health and strength of your hair.

The Kérastase Elixir Ultime may be a conditioning treat for your hair but it's so deliciously scented that it could masquerade as a hair perfume. Simply spritz onto your locks for gorgeous volume, health and shine, and incredibly fragranced hair.

We cannot mention hair fragrance without mentioning Moroccanoil. The original treatment is like a vanilla scented cloud that nourishes your hair and leaves it smelling divine. It speeds up drying time, reduces frizz and leaves your hair smooth and gorgeous.

This multi-tasking oil can be used on the face, body and hair. We love it on our bodies as it makes our skin glimmer with health, but on our hair it works magic! It smells of sunshine and coconuts and leaves hair bouncier, shinier and healthier.

If you are after something a little more relaxing, then the This Works Sleep Plus Hair Elixir will help you drift off to sleep. It is infused with Lavender and botanical oils including Jojoba and Baobab to nourish your hair as you get some beauty sleep.



Skincare Specialist

I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
