Make your own hair perfume!


A hair perfume can be a good option in the summer as it prevents the sweat in your hair to stink..try making some at home , it really is helpful :)


  1. Put 1/2 cup distilled water in the perfume or spray bottle.
  2. Add 5 to 10 drops Sof essential or fragrance oil. You want the mix to be concentrated for longevity, but not too strong that it becomes overbearing.
  3. Close the bottle and shake to mix.



How to Use

Ensure that before each application you shake the bottle to mix the ingredients. Simply spray as lightly or as liberally as you want on freshly washed and styled or old hair. Also, keep it handy in your purse to freshen up your hair throughout the day.

Keep in Mind


  • If your products are butter based, chances are your hair has a slight nutty smell. To complement that scent use fragrances like vanilla and cinnamon for your hair perfume to give it the smell of rolling around in baked goods.

  • If you use more gels and other unscented or lightly scented products, then try mixing citrus essential oils for an exotic scent. Also, a curly can never go wrong with mixed berries.

  • Fragrance and essential oils are different. Fragrance oils will last longer because they are less volatile, but are slightly greasy. Essential oils are non-greasy, but are very volatile, meaning that the scent is not as long lasting. Also, fragrance oils, unlike essential oils, are manmade.

  • Lastly, cinnamon is said to be an aphrodisiac, and men seem particularly fond of vanilla and lavender.
