Women’s self-care routines seem to get longer and more complex as the years go by. Buying good quality, long lasting products does make the task a little easier though, so choose wisely. Sometimes it seems like most things are so expensive, but a trick my mother always told me is to spend more the first time for better quality and you end up saving in the long run. She was SO right!

When it comes to hair perfume, you might ask yourself, what is it exactly, and why do I need it? I have perfume, can I just use that instead? We’ll answer these questions for you and then give you a list of the best 15 hair perfumes of 2023. Let’s get right to it.

What exactly is hair perfume?

Hair perfume is a scented spray which comes in aerosol bottles and you spray them on your hair after styling to have a long-lasting fresh smell. They usually contain more natural oils and a lower percentage of alcohol than regular perfume which prevents dryness.

They also offer you other benefits on top of smelling great: UV Protection, they help detangle your knots, prevent hair static and give it shine while moisturizing your hair all at once. Which answers your other question: the reason you shouldn’t use regular perfume on your hair is because of its higher concentration of alcohol present in perfume which ends up drying your hair too much.

If you want your hair to look healthy with great shine all while smelling great all day long, you should definitely add hair perfume to your regular routine. Here are some of the best hair perfumes to choose from, depending on your preference and budget.
