Allergy to Perfume

My friend is allergic to most perfumes on her skin and initially found she had a very limited range of fragrances – mostly natural oils – however then she came up with the idea of spraying the perfume on her hair rather than on the skin. Now she was able to use any perfume she’d like and no problems with her skin.

    Yeah i always spritz my hair with a light mist of my perfume and it has never done me any harm. My hair is in really good condition! Plus the perfume really stays in the hair, so when you flick your hair around you get a whiff of your lovely scent!

    As far as I know it doesn`t harm your hair? I doubt it`s much different to spraying your hair with hairspray. Not entirely sure, but I`ve been spraying perfume in my hair for years with no apparent negative effects!

    I`ve thought of this before, but always chickened out in case it did something to my hair.
    Does anyone know if it can have any side affects? Greasiness? Make it more prone to breakage? Or is it all ok?
    Thanks

    I actually have a problem with hair products, in that hairsprays often make my cheeks feel kind of hot and go all red, so I would think that if you are reacting to something when applied to your skin then putting it in your hair would inevitably contact your skin a bit – maybe it is less than when it is directly applied though.
    I have been worrying about pthalates in perfumes though, so am using a natural bergamot oil perfume now anyway.

    Wow, that`s an excellent idea! I`m going to try that out tomorrow. I occasionally get a reaction from perfume too and it stopped me from wearing perfume everyday.
