Sachajuan Protective Hair Perfume Review

Sachajuan Protective Hair Perfume Review Image

Not only do I like my hair to look good but I like it to smell great too.  Finally I have found the perfect product to leave my hair smelling as good as it looks… even if I do say so myself!

The Sachajuan Protective Hair Perfume is one such fragrance and I can’t wait to tell you all about it.

This is the first product that I have tried from Sachajuan, although I did receive a big sample size of one of their other products in my Space NK gift with purchase recently and after trying the hair perfume, I can’t wait to see what it is like.  At first glance, I really love the packing of Sachajuan products.  The packaging is clean, simplistic and uncomplicated.  There are no bells and whistles, it is all about the product inside.

The Sachajuan Protective Hair Perfume is a deliciously scented hair fragrance that combines top notes of litchi and green apple with heart notes of peach, rose and ylang ylang and base notes of patchouli, cedar wood and white musk to create a fresh fruity floral scent.  If you’ve used other Sachajuan products in the past then you’ll recognise the perfume as having the same signature scent as their other hair care products.

As soon as I knew that this fragrance had a base of white musk, I knew that there was a good chance that I was going to like it as it is my favourite note in a perfume because I find that it adds a layer of warmth and sensuality to a scent.

However I wasn’t expecting to like the smell as much as I do.  In fact, I would love this as a normal perfume, not just for my hair because it is so fresh and crisp but still has the depth that white musk gives to a fragrance.  I was pleased to find out that as the formula of this hair perfume is so gentle, it can be used as a body mist too and I’ve been trying that out over the last couple of weeks and really loving the scent.

I actually find that the scent lasts for longer on my skin than my hair as I can smell the notes of the scent for hours after it has dried down on my skin whereas the perfume scent on my hair lasts about an hour or so.  However the refreshing benefits of the perfume are even longer lasting on my hair than the scent is because it actually controls the hair odour.

Aside from the beautiful fragrance, the Sachajuan Protective Hair Perfume actually features the latest in anti-odour technology to get rid of unpleasant odours in the hair.  The formula uses an extract from natural citrus oils that encapsulate odour molecules and break them down.  This refreshes the hair and gets rid of any bad odours that can linger in dirty hair, particularly on second or third day hair when your hair isn’t completely clean, or after a night out when your hair may smell of smoke or a mixture of lots of other products you’ve used in your hair.

I tend to wash my hair every third day, or possibly every fourth when I’m wearing hair extensions and I find that this hair perfume is a great way to refresh my hair between washes.  I use a little dry shampoo on my roots to soap up the excess oil and then I spritz this all over my hair to refresh it and leave it smelling clean and fresh.

The hair perfume doesn’t change the texture of the hair or leave anything on it to make it feel dry or crispy.  If you’re someone who doesn’t have oily hair to warrant the use of dry shampoo but still want to refresh it between washes, then this would be perfect to use for that too as well as on the first day that you’ve washed your hair.

In the above photo, I’d just blow dried by hair and then gave it a spritz with the Protective Hair Perfume.  I love how it gave me that ‘I’ve just had my hair done’ feeling and whenever I flipped my hair, I could smell the perfume on my hair.  It smells clean and fresh and really makes me feel put together.  This would definitely be the ultimate product to finish off getting ready with before heading out the door.

The Protective Hair Perfume actually has a more benefits than refreshing the hair alone.  It infused with keratin and silk oils that aim to moisturise the hair and restore damage. It also adds a subtle healthy sheen to the hair without making it oily which I love because products that I have used to add shine to my hair in the past have ended up leaving my hair looking like a greasy ball whereas this one doesn’t.

My favourite benefit of this product, aside from the scent, is that actually helps to reduce static.  On the odd occasion when I brush my hair and it does go static it drives me crazy.  It really irritates me and I am yet to find a product that stops it without coating my hair.  That was, until I tried the Protective Hair Perfume.  For some reason, I tend to find that my hair becomes more static at this time of the year when I am wearing scarves and hats more often however I haven’t experienced it at all since starting to use this product.

The formula also offers UV protection for the hair which can help to prevent environmental damage that can dehydrate the hair, making it look dry and brittle and even causing split ends.  If you have coloured hair, UV rays can also encourage your hair colour to fade.  I have my roots died darker than my natural hair to give it an outgrown look and definitely don’t want the colour to fade so the UV protection that this product has is definitely a bonus for me.

If you want to have beautifully smelling hair that looks healthy and free from static, then you need this in your hair care routine!

    Great post! Hair fragrances are one of those things we never think about until time is short and you realize you still haven't washed your hair – sometimes dry shampoo just doesn't cut it. This one looks like a good one to try because it seems to also have hair benefits. One on our to try list! Thanks Laura xxx
