This is the reason why you should never, ever spritz perfume in your hair

We've all been guilty of doing it at some point.

But it turns out that spraying perfume in your hair - even if it's just a spritz or two - could actually be doing serious damage to your locks.

It's all down to the fact that perfumes contain high levels of alcohol, which can lead to irritation in the scalp; making it really dry, and leading to visible flaking.

However, it's not the only way that your signature scent can affect your hair.

If you spray your perfume into your hair after you have already blowdried it (and when you've probably already used all your moisture-infused products), the scent will actually lead to some serious damage for your 'do.

Sophia Hilton, founder of Not Another Salon, told Stylist:

"We don’t think twice about spaying our neck with perfume every day.

"But what we don’t think about is how high in alcohol it is and how 1/3 of it is actually being instantly absorbed, not by our skin, but by our hair!

"Even worse some girls even spray they hair directly, leading to a dryness they can just never put their finger on where its coming from.

"It’s worth thinking about, if you are in a dryness battle… just where exactly is my perfume going?”

That's us told, so.
