HERRA Protect // Hair Perfume


So. Perfume for your hair. You maybe thinking 'whatever next' because that's exactly what went through my mind when I heard about hair perfume, I even said to hubster - surely you can just use normal perfume for your hair? he was a bit bewildered because he has no idea, the poor wee lamb. 

I was kindly sent this bottle of HERRA Protect Hair Perfume to trial which I happily said yes to because I kinda wanted to know more about the brand, the concept and of course the product. When it arrived I was still confused but, reading the information I had a huge 'ah-ha' moment and finally all of the Herra marketing and concept made oh so much sense. 

I'll stop confusing you here and get to the actual nitty gritty.  Apparently thirty minutes after leaving home the hair shaft opens and leaves our hair prone to serious damage such as free radicals during the day, chemicals, pollution, food odours, smoke, humidity, sweat, stress, elastic from bobbles and scratches from hair grips and UV damage. We really treat it like a neglected side kick if you think about it so what do you put on your hair to protect it? I have in the past used a Kerastase cream product that was aimed at blocking UV damage and keeping my hair soft but, it just weighed my hair down so it sat unused for well over a year. It was expensive as well which is frustrating because I dislike waste. 


Herra tackled the issue of hair damage by working with industry experts which is where Herra Hair Perfume was born. Herra Protect not only offers a fresh, feminine fragrance that delicately scents the hair but it also hydrates and protects all day long. Herra describe it as an 'umbrella for the hair.'

I absolutely see the benefits of this product now and it's really lovely to use - it definitely feels like a little bit of luxury every morning when I spritz on my hair perfume. I wish the marketing was a little bit clearer as I know there will be a ton of people out there who will just think this is a hair perfume, I know it says protect on the bottle but it isn't really apparent why it's protecting. Taking a look at the ingredients it's clear to see 'how' it manages it. 

Ingredients include: 

Sunflower Extract // to protect the hair structure, help provide UV protection and reduces fading of your hair colour. 

Olive Fruit Extract // Rich in antioxidants to protect against free radicals and pollution. 

Glycerin // Seals in moisture while providing some serious hydration. 

Fragrance // Notes include Italian Bergamot, Loquat Fruit, Midnight Orchid, Rose, White Jasmine, Mimosa, Heliotrope, Lily, Vanilla, Tonka Bean, Sandalwood and Musk. 

As you can see it's all good stuff, I actually love wearing this and would wear it alone as a perfume too. You can pick up your own from the Herra website here, how do you feel about hair perfumes or products that aim to protect your tresses?
