    Default Do you spray perfume on your hair?

    I've recently read in some news fashion magazine that spraying perfume on your hair would only result to adverse effects like dry hair due to its alcohol content. Will only create chemical reaction to hair dye, gel or mousse that will only inhibit further hair dirt and grease. How bout you? Do you spray perfume on your hair? What are the effects beside the scent it brings?

    Given that my head has as much hair as a watermelon, the answer is a straight 'no' for me

    My chest hair.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Ha ha was going to say the same thing. I spray the tops of my arms though. Fleeting scents always last longer there due the hair.

    I also spray another hairy area when my wife and I have a house free of kids.

    I have sprayed my luscious hair and it hasn't fried, dried or any such thing has occurred! Men and especially Women have use all kinds of stuff in their hair such as scented hair sprays, shampoo , conditioner...etc and all those have chemicals, never mind that those pretty much hit the scalp but when you spray yourself with 1 or 2 sprays with your fragrance you're only hitting the top surface of your hair that's if your blessed to have any!

    Too much information


    Women spray their hair -- in fact it was 'quite the thing' years ago

    If it's a very light scent and hot, I sometimes do.

    Speaking from experience as someone whose hair has once caught fire, I was really glad I hadn't put anything flammable on it because the fire spreads quickly!
    My only regrets in life are the people I haven't stood up for,
    and the perfumes I've thrown away.

    Surely you jest, yes? I cannot imagine hair spontaneously bursting into flames because one spritzed perfume on it. Now, if your head was close to an open flame, I could imagine that it might catch fire.

    I haven't seen head hair in years. I almost forgot what the shit was until you brought it up. I have known some people to put perfume in their hair. And It didn't do any more damage than the half a can of hairspray, perm solution and dye they were using.

    I have not sprayed my hair, per se. I have lifted my hair and sprayed my scalp. I have also sprayed cloth hair ties. I do not think spraying one's hair would cause any problem unless it was done in excess. Spraying one's hair occasionally surely would be okay.

    Yes, back of my neck/hair. Have done this for years to add some longevity after it was discussed here. Nothing happens that is adverse.

    I sometimes hit the back of my neck with a spray or two which is right along my hairline. Do I spray directly on top of my head ever? Nope.

    I do sometimes. I spray a couple onto my palms and work the fingers through the hair. I saw my parents did that when I was young so yeah, it's family tradition.

    If one's scalp leans toward the oily end of the spectrum, and mine does, I recommend spraying one's scalp as the oil will really help lock in a fragrance.

    I really enjoy applying fragrance onto my hair.

    Seriously though, I used to but I wear fragrances for self-sillage more than anything now and putting it on the top of my head didn't contribute. My current spots are on the outside of my biceps(hitting half skin, half shirt sleeve), stomach(skin), and if I need another I'll hit the back of my neck(half skin, half hairline). Lie that ever time I swivel my upper body, stand up/sit down, bend over, etc I get a whiff of what I'm wearing.
