Fekkai Hair Fragrance Mists

I am currently obsessed with Fekkai Hair Fragrance Mist ($19.99) because it brings me back to the 90’s when I used to hoard Salon Selectives Air It Out Odor Neutralizer. I truly believe my first beauty hoarding experience started with that hair refresher. And I was right to hoard it too by the very way because it was discontinued and my heart nearly broke. It had this really pretty fresh scent and made my hair so lovely!

Recently I ran across Fekkai Hair Fragrance Mist and instantly I had to see if it would recreate the experience I had with Salon Selectives.

Fekkai Hair Fragrance Mist

Fekkai Hair Fragrance Mist comes housed in a elegant glass bottle and look like a perfume. I could easily mistake this for a bottle of regular fragrance if I had it on my vanity. It really is nicely packaged.

Not only are these formulated to act as a fragrance for your hair but they are also formulated to add shine while controlling frizz. I have long, long, wavy hair that is prone to frizz and I wouldn’t say this formula does ANYTHING at all for my frizz. Perhaps if you have really minor frizz issues it might help but honestly, for my hair, no way, no how. But the shine factor is indeed true. It does add a nice shine to my locks!

Fekkai puts these out in four fragrances which include vanilla, rose, lemon mint (which smells like lemon cough drops haha!), and a Summer-y fragrance called L’Air de St. Barths (my favorite of the four).

You might be wondering why I want a hair fragrance…! I don’t smoke so thankfully I don’t need to neutralize smoky odors in my hair. Although a few weeks ago I went to see Otherwise in concert and man I came out of that concert with smoke clinging to my hair, my clothes, and everything else! Yak! When I got back to my hotel room I was too lazy to take a shower since it was so late so before I went to bed I was misting my hair with this. I’m also just a lover of smelling pretty! Who doesn’t want their hair to smell extra nice? And this is a nice way to get a little extra fragrance on your locks that goes above your shampoo and conditioner. No worries it doesn’t cause build up and it is a very, very fine mist so it doesn’t make your hair stiff or crunchy. It merely adds a very pretty, light fragrance to your hair! If you do smoke by some chance it’s a nice way to mask up the odor of smoke in your hair!

These don’t have a good deal of linger or throw the way my beloved Salon Selections formula did but they do the job well enough. And if you’re standing close to someone they will likely catch a sniff of your hair! The best of the bunch was L’Air de St. Barths as the other fragrances were kinda of generic and not as nicely fragranced. Like the vanilla smelled a bit like air freshener and the lemon mint had a menthol cough drop kinda thing going on where as the rose was straight up toilet paper scent. I wouldn’t say they were terrible but the St Barths was a very nice warm beach-y fragrance that was unique and pleasant.

All in all I liked these though!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I love that you posted this! I found the vanilla one 70% at Target a few months back and bought a few bottles. I had been hunting for a hair frangrance mist to freshen up in between washes and most were sooo expensive! I remember back in the 90s there was a L’Oreal one that I believe came in a warm and cool scent and both smelled so good and worked so well. Tresemme also had one that they discontinued, not sure why because it was awesome!

    • Isabella Muse

      Amy you should try the St Barth’s one it is lovely! Oh wow I don’t remember the L’Oreal one, sounds nice! Such a shame more brands don’t do these!

    • Rachel

      YESSS I LOVED THAT COOL SCENT!!!! I didn’t hoard it like I should have and about cried when I realized it was discontinued!

      Hair deodorizer things are amazing and I’m SO sad that they have become so hard to find! I have really thick and unmanageable hair, so I only wash every other day. My hair doesn’t stink or anything, but I love being able to spray a little something in it to freshen it up! Yeah, I could spray perfume or body spray in it, but I really like the ones made just for hair because the scents are usually lighter and more refreshing, so I don’t end up with a killer headache!

      I keep my fingers crossed every year that hair deodorizers will make a comeback!

    I’m really shocked that the price of these is so reasonable, fekkai stuff always costs a million dollars! So the rose one was gross,huh? That really bums me out because i absolutely LOVE rose fragranced stuff, IF its done right! Where did you find these?

    • Isabella Muse

      Not gross really but not really a nice rose to my nose! I got them at Kohls.

    I remember the Salon Selectives one- I used to use it all the time! My fav, though, was by Clean. It was expensive ($39) but it smelled just like fabric softener. Then a few years back they “reformulated” it (basically watered it down to the point it didn’t even have any fragrance). Currently I have one by Pink Sugar, but I’ve been contemplating the St. Barth’s the next time I hit Harmons.

    • Isabella Muse

      I noticed that about Clean 🙁 they watered down not only the hair mist but all their fragrances lately!

  • Karen

    I will not rest until i get these. I would love to a pic of your hair! I dont think we have seen it. Funny i was thinking that you should do hair product reviews since you said there are not as many make up releases

  • Iris

    I found the one I wanted (St. Barth’s) is available in Canada’s Shoppers Drug Mart stores. I will be picked up a bottle when I finish off more of my hair products. 🙂

  • Karina

    My favorite hair fragrance was the one by Herbal Essence, smelled just like their classic shampoo. I wish they didn’t get rid of it!

    • Karina

      It was called Clairol Herbal Essences Style Refreshing Mist! loved this stuff

  • Nik

    I’m not sure if it’s the same one but I spied the Salon Selectives Air it Out on Amazon! 😀 I loved Salon Selectives in the 80s! I recently bought a Dial Pink Himalayan Salt shower gel because it smelled like SS shampoo! :{D
