You must be thinking, what exactly is hair mist and why can't I spritz perfume on my hair?
For a start, perfume contains a high concentration of alcohol which can be both damaging and drying for your hair.
Hair mists, on the other hand, are made with less alcohol and some even contain ingredients such as botanical oils to help enhance shine and softness.
Furthermore, in humid tropical weather like ours, hair mists provide you with a layer of scent protection, since we often sweat buckets just by stepping out of the door.
Not only that, hair mists are sold at a fraction of the cost of a regular perfume, making it affordable for you to try a new scent.
