I can see your raised eyebrow and ‘Anna, really?‘ expression from here, but hear me out on this one. I’d seen the whole hair perfume craze crop up here and there, but didn’t give it much attention. I’m notoriously lazy with my locks (shampoo, conditioner, one sole styling agent, done – is a little how my routine goes) and any beauty invention that adds an extra step into my routine I instantly raise up a single ladies Beyoné-style hand to. Hair perfume passed me until I had my first sniff courtesy of the Unite Hair Perfume in Alanna. Woah nelly. A fresh, fruity scent speed up my nostrils and misted my hair with a freshly washed whiff. Sold.
The fact that the main purpose of this is to refresh hair that is well overdue a wash isn’t what pulls me in. I’ve got my routine down to the point where it takes 20 minutes to do the whole shebang – I’ll happily step in the shower. Nor is it the UV colour protecting powers that do it for me – my hair is currently a dye-free zone. It’s the scent that gets me. In recent months I’ve discovered that I can be a bit of a perfume-phobe. Certain kinds of fragrances play on my mind, give me headaches, make me feel whoozy and I have to scrub ’em off my wrists immediately. The soft, slightly citrusy, slightly floral more-ish scent has no adverse effect on me and is one that has me spritzing on more. And more. It ain’t just a hair perfume, it’s a perfume perfume. Skip the EDP’s, spray this onto locks and trust me, you’ll be fighting the urge all day to re-enact a Herbal Essences advert.
