Fresh in the hair

We've all been there. Step out with freshly washed hair, with a refreshing scent that's sure to turn heads as you pass by. But few hours later, you return with strange odours in your hair - of sweat, smoke, petrol, or worse, something dank and foul. Our hair, much like our clothes, have the tendency to trap odour. So, how do we overcome this, considering a frequent visit to the showers only means you're sure to dry out your tresses?

Hair mists. These lifesavers may come in compact forms, but they carry out a ginormous task of masking the strangest of smells that our strands unfortunately capture.

All too often many wonder the point of hair mists. I mean, we would get away by spritzing our favourite perfumes, right? Wrong. You're just unloading harsh chemicals and damaging the strands. Regular perfumes and body mists contain ethyl alcohol and synthetic fragrances. While these are designed to combat body odour on skin, they contribute towards hair dryness, which in turn leads to frizz, breakage, split ends and everything unruly.

Hair mists, on the other hand, are nourishment galore. They feature a lightweight formula with gentle scents that don't weigh the hair down. They also add shine and control frizz, leaving you with sleek and sexy locks all day long. A majority of brands also infuse a chockful of nutrients into their concoction so that every spritz gives your hair a boost of nourishment. Anti-oxidants and Vitamin E are among the common ingredients that bring a bounty of goodness. Besides adding a lingering aroma, hair mists also keep hair looking refreshed. That's why the best times to use them is on second or third-day hair. Simply pair it with a dry shampoo for an added oomph.

Spritz on the go

Shake that bottle of hair mist to activate the ingredients and get ready to work in sections. Lift the hair, aim the nozzle at the roots and spray. Run fingers through your hair and you're all good to go. Remember, a little goes a long way.
