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 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!
