Herra Protect Hair Perfume*

Let's be honest, we've all been known to spritz a bit of perfume into our hair at some point. After all, hair is more absorbent than skin, so delivers a longer lasting scent. Yay! But we soon learnt that most perfumes contain alcohol and are actually pretty drying to the hair. Boo!

Herra approached me to give their new Herra Protect Hair Perfume a go. Hair perfume? Perfume made for hair? Really? Okay..
I hadn't used one before, not being able to justify splashing out on something just to make my hair smell nice. It's just a new craze.. right? 
What I didn't know was the other amazing benefits they have..

Featuring in many magazines of late, including Vogue, and having just had an amazing week backstage at New York Fashion Week, this little beauty is causing a stir!

Herra say...
'Herra Protect Hair Perfume is an innovative product created by the joint expertise of London's finest hair talents and a leading fragrance expert. A revolutionary product with weightless, protecting and hydrating ingredients accompanied with the Herra epsilon signature fragrance.

First impressions do count, and the sleek black and gold box and the glass bottle look great on my dressing table next to my other perfumes. It is also the perfect size to pop into my handbag.
I'll be totally honest, I didn't think I was going to think much to it, I thought that hair perfume was a silly fad, a waste of money.
I was wrong. Turns out I've just found a new favourite when it comes to hair care!
Not only does it have a lovely fragrance, with ingredients such as Italian bergamot, rose, musk, sandalwood, creamy vanilla and white jasmine, a really delicate yummy scent that lasts a few hours, but it also protects against UV rays and colour fade, and contains antioxidants that help shield the hair against pollution and free radicals. It contains moisturising glycerin to seal in moisture and provide hydration and I can honestly say that after only a few days use I can feel a difference in my hair. It feels smooth to the touch and hydrated. A perfect product for in between washes! And one that makes your hair smell fab too. It's not a long lasting smell, a few hours maybe. But the smoothness continues. 
I will warn you not to use too much, and not to get too close - it is essentially an oil, less is more. Too much and too close will make your hair a little greasy, as I found out earlier in the week.
A quick spritz at arms length each morning and pop it in your handbag for a refreshing spritz later in the day - great smelling hair that is also being protected. What more could you want?

I took the bottle into work for some of my work colleagues to try. One said she really liked it and would buy it, her hair smelt really fresh and lasted a few hours, which was a bonus since she is a smoker. Another said she liked the smell, although as she had shorter hair she wasn't able to smell it on herself. Both commented that the price was a little steep for them.

Would I recommend it?
Yes! Herra Protect Hair Perfume will benefit everyone. It boasts to protect and shield hair from air conditioning and central heating, which can damage and dehydrate the hair; protecting and refreshing against daily pollution. Take it to the gym to refresh your hair after exercise. Take it on holiday to help protect hair from UV rays. It's a perfect solution for in between washes, to freshen, fragrance and protect both natural hair and hair extensions.

Would I repurchase?
I think this will last me a good while. But I think I'd definitely repurchase as I love the smell and the feel of my hair when I've used it. It may be something I purchase as a luxury now and again.

Herra Protect Hair Perfume is available from Herra Hair Care at £24.99 (50ml)

  1. This sounds like such a fab idea, but there's no way I'd pay this price for it.. I spray perfume and walk through the mist, and it works just as well :) xx

    1. I did this - but be wary as most perfumes contain alcohol which is quite damaging to hair, it can dry it out a lot too.

  2. this sounds really good! i like the concept of it a lot :)
