Those of us who are fragrance sensitive know the distinct horror of opening up a bottle of shampoo, conditioner, or other hair-perfecting products and finding that what's labeled as "lightly scented" actually smells like an entire bottle of Chanel No. 5. Organic products aren't necessary better in the fragrance department, often relying on overpowering herbal notes to enforce the "natural" effect.
However, there are a handful of effective haircare products on the market that are available unscented, or have a truly clean fragrance that even the aroma-shy will find tolerable. Through a mix of self-testing and research, we've come up with thirteen great haircare products that won't have you reaching for the Claritin.
Unscented Strong Hold Hairspray
This cult classic hairspray is now available in an unscented version.
This hair gel is low on harmful chemicals but gives enough hold for complex styles.
Thermal Styling Spray
The clean, minimal scent of this thermal styling spray won’t offend sensitive noses. As an added bonus, the spray helps prevent and repair heat-damaged hair.
