This Is The Best-Smelling Hair Spray We've Ever Tried

September 9, 2016 by Justine Schwartz

The beauty market is flooded with options these days, so there’s basically no reason why you shouldn’t get everything you want from the products you buy–they should work perfectly AND smell amazing. Especially hair products–your hair is close to your face/nose, so you have to smell them all day long and while you sleep, too (this is how your pillow will smell!). For example, this should be the only shampoo and conditioner you use.

Today we’re talking about hair sprays. Traditionally, hair sprays are the black sheep of hair products–they have a really bad rap for being sticky aerosols that smell terrible and give you 1980s stiff hair. But hair spray is a necessity for setting style and creating texture, so when you absolutely have to use it, you want something that doesn’t smell too chemical-y or gross.

Behold! This editor and the internet are unanimous in agreeing that KMS CALIFORNIA Hair Play Playable Texture Spray is the best-smelling spray on the market. I tried it recently when my hair stylist pushed spray on me after an appointment (I have thin hair and always avoid hair spray if I can). I was absolutely blown away by how amazing it smelled. It’s sweet but not too sweet, and definitely not too strong.

I did some research after trying it, and discovered that beauty editors and online reviews totally agree. Allure beauty editors named it one of the best-smelling hair products ever, describing it as smelling like “homemade apple pie.” Their researcher also said that, “I would honestly spray this all over my body if I wouldn’t end up a sticky mess.”

Reviewers on Ulta and Amazon agreed. It has 14 reviews for “Smells great,” on Ulta.

A close second, according to the internet is ORIBE Hair Care Dry Texturizing Spray ($44). It also made Allure’s list and has TONS of good reviews about smell on Amazon. “It smells AMAZING,” wrote one reviewer. “Smells fantastic and gives great texture to even thin hair,” wrote another.
