I have dipped in and out of the You Beauty Discovery Boxes for a while, depending on whether there is anything that catches my eye. July's selection did indeed catch my eye because of the inclusion of Hairy Jayne's Hair Perfume. Having seen this feature on a few blogs, I was really keen to try this for myself. Full ingredients can also be found by clicking the link.
Hairy Jayne has a small range of shampoo, conditioner, treatment oil and hair perfume. Her mission is simple, to use naturally derived ingredients to make women feel good about their hair.
There are three hair perfumes to choose from; floral, citrus and musk. They are designed to freshen up hair between washes as well as offering heat protection, adding shine and smoothing flyaways. The Hair Perfumes are available in two sizes; 50 and 100ml.
The one I have is citrus, and it smells gorgeous. It reminds me of sherbet lemons. The fragrance comes from a combination of grapefruit, may chang and jasmine. Although the fragrance doesn't last all day, it is noticeable for a good few hours. It is noticeable enough for him indoors to ask what I have used on my hair, but without being overpowering.
As I have said before, my hair is long and fine. I haven't yet managed to find a product which allows me to get away with washing my hair daily and the hair perfume doesn't change that for me. This is a very light spray, so it doesn't weigh my hair down. I tend to use it, after I have washed my hair and it is still wet. More often than not I let my hair dry naturally, as straighteners are far too much like hard work for everyday use. I have used this a couple of times through the day, and there is no product build up. Even using it is this way it still doesn't weigh my hair down which I am pleased about. A little goes a long way, making them good value for money.
The hair perfume certainly helps detangle my hair, and leaves it looking healthier and smoother. I have also used it on my daughter's hair to help deal with the tangles and it works a treat. I would love to know how an earth she manages to get it so knotted. I can't really comment on the heat protection as I don't use heat often enough to be able to tell the difference.
Overall I have really enjoyed using the Hair Perfume, and would certainly buy this again. I am curious about the other fragrances and so am very tempted by the perfume set. I would love to see a dry shampoo join the range too.
