Here is why you should add this step to your beauty routine

Often overlooked in the beauty department, hair fragrances make for a refreshing final touch before you leave the house, and they are great for a pick-me-up anytime of the day—some even moisturises and add shine to leave you with fragrant, luscious tresses. Our hair is more absorbent in nature compared to our skin, which explains how it picks up unwanted scents from time to time (Korean barbeque, anyone?). This is where hair fragrances come in handy—much like your regular perfume, but gentler in formula to avoid drying out your strands, just a quick spritz and you'll be good to go. Here are a few hair fragrances and mists that will make great additions to your beauty arsenal:


Chanel Chance Eau Vive Hair Mist, RM132

If you already love the dynamic fragrance that is the Chance Eau Vive, you'll fall for this hair mist in a heartbeat. It's a lighter but more lasting way of wearing the vibrant fragrance of zesty citrus scents alongside Chanel Chance's signature jasmine and white musk notes without drying the hair.

Available at Chanel counters nationwide.


Percy & Reed Eau My Goodness Shine & Fragrance Mist, RM110

Percy & Reed calls this the ultimate multi-tasker, and for good reason too: it is perfect for your red carpet events, as a rescue remedy, or just because. Spray it over your hair and indulge in the airy delicate scent of garden flowers with a lovely heart of rose, peony and other aromatic wonders.

Available at Sephora stores nationwide.


Sachajuan Protective Hair Perfume
