The struggle is real. As someone with extremely sensitive skin, I know first hand that finding scent-free hair products can be a challenge. So, if you're currently searching for the perfect fragrance-free hairspray, you're in luck.

If you're anything like me, even looking at a bottle of perfume gives you instant eczema. Aside from the fact that I can only shop at Whole Foods for "natural" perfumes, I've noticed that finding shampoos, conditioners, and other hair styling products that are fragrance-free sometimes feels nearly impossible. Even the drugstore brands that claim to be "for sensitive skin" aren't always fragrance-free.

But rest assured, there are plenty of scent-free options on the market. With this handy list, you'll never again have to choose between great hair and great skin.

Ready to say goodbye to that itchy scalp? Buts out your wallets, ladies!

1. Free and Clear Firm Hold Hairspray

I'm still thankful for the lady at Walmart who mentioned this amazing brand to me, because before then, I had a chronic case of eczema behind my ears. Aside from hairspray, this brand offers shampoos and conditioners too. They're also sulfate-free, which means it's safe to use on color-treated hair.
