15 Scented Hair Mists To Keep Your Tresses Smelling Good AF

Get your hair looking luscious and fresh with these must-have hair mists.

Hair mists may not be at the top of your list of routine essentials but you’d be surprised at how useful they can be. A hair mist is just the thing you need when you want to refresh day-old hair, or you’ve finished with your sweat sesh and only have time to shower, but not wash your hair. A hair mist can also come in handy when you’re meeting friends for hot pot or Korean BBQ when the smell of mala or grilled meat is likely to stick to your hair.

You’re probably wondering why you need to invest in a hair mist when you can just use your regular perfume. Most perfumes have alcohol, which can dry out your strands, that’s why it’s best to use a hair mist that was created specifically for this purpose. Here are some hair mists that will keep your locks luscious and smelling fresh.
