The sense of scent is a unusual and unique mystery! Different scents are appealing to different people. Some people find the smell of a baking pie very comforting, some enjoy the sweet scent of a ripe peach, others enjoy the smell of wet glass after a rainfall. The good news about your choice of scent is that you can have it and customize it to suit your haircare! Yes, indeed, I did say haircare! The internet offers wonderful shopping options and some very posh brands of haircare are available, believe me I know, as I’ve tried them all! But for the last few years I’ve turned to smaller companies that create a wonderful utopia of haircare products that suit my need for not only a good volumizing shampoo and a deep quenching condition but also a sweet smelling one or a foody scented one!
I’ve come across some wonderful small shops that offer wonderful customization for shampoos, conditioners, hair sprays, hair gels, hair refreshers, and more! These small shops offer a wide range of scents that will suit any need! Scents range from fresh baked goods like cookies, cakes, and cupcakes, different fruits, and of course wonderful sweet scents to ease your need for sugar!
I guess some people would wonder why I have a need to smell like a cupcake or a peach but hey that’s another mystery that’s unique…it all comes down to being a girl!
Some scents I’ve come across in haircare that I’ve tried, fallen in love with, and stash in my washroom would be the following:
Bunny Hugs-A dreamy and creamy blend of sliced fruit, with oranges, marshmallows and whipped cream.
Cherry Cupcakes-Sweet, frosted vanilla & cherry cupcakes with light notes of almond & toasted coconut.
Island Girl-A cocktail inspired fragrance blending of lemon and lime with cherry and pineapple.
Violet Fairy Cakes-These little vanilla frosted, violet topped petit four cakes are perfect for a fairy tea party.
White Cake-Scrumptious white cake with sweet almond notes!
Banana Split Cupcakes-Chocolate banana cupcakes topped with strawberry cream and a cherry!
Sweetheart Cake-Fluffy mini cream puffs stuffed with a soft strawberry buttercream with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
Pretty in Paris-Sweet summer strawberries, oodles of marshmallow cream frosting, cotton candy and vanilla cream makes this one sweet treat.
These are just some of the scents that line my bathroom cabinets. The companies I shop from offer a wide range of scents to suit every need, truly when I said wide range I mean it! Scent lists available from most sites go from 100-500 blends or more! Some companies are even willing to blend a custom scent to suit your needs if you happen to not locate one from the huge list they already have!
I find that many of the haircare products linger very long in my hair and give off an amazing throw which means I am constantly asked, “Wow what is that wonderful smell”…! I always love to smell sweet and gorgeous I guess it comes with the girl territory and when someone remarks on how wonderful my hair smells I just glow and feel very tickled they noticed!
These companies offer a wide range of items that can be customized but this blog entry is solely dedicated to the haircare line of items!

These are just some of the dozens of shops that offer customized haircare! Have a search and you’ll find a million more!
If you aren’t familiar with these forms of shops please keep in mind prior to ordering that they make your order upon your submitting it! This means that certain items do take a longer wait time! Some companies have wait times up to one month while others get products out faster! Basically your items are not sitting on a shelf and placed in a box for shipment, they are freshly made and then shipped to you! They are immensely popular as well which causes the wait time to go up accordingly, especially around the Holidays! Prices are affordable but some companies are Canadian which means costly shipping options! On the plus side some companies do run specials with 10%-20% off orders!
Personally I love the option of clicking on a bottle of Shampoo and asking for it in any one of 500 scents! Many of these small shops revolve the scent lists as the seasons change and the holidays come up! I love smelling like sweet, juicy fruits in the summer and gorgeous pies, cakes, and cupcakes in the winter! I like the scent of cool mints or warm cakes and baked goods in my hair during Christmas and possibly the smell of caramel apple or candy corn during Halloween! If that isn’t customized haircare I don’t know what is!
