It is not enough for your hair to look good. Hair must also smell good. But it is not easy to get hair that looks and smells lovely at the same time. To make your hair smell good, you have to first know why it could smell bad. Ordinarily, your hair has a unique smell that is neither bad or good. But if hair is unwashed for many days, it may develop greasy odour.
A girl wants her hair to not only look great but also smell great. Amazing- smelling hair helps you feel fresher and we all know that guys can’t resist them either! 😉 Delicious-smelling shampoos and conditioners are obvious choices, but let’s explore a few natural methods. Try these ways to help your hair smell good naturally ALL the time! Read on for fabulously fragrant strands…
1. Change your pillow cover frequently
Oftentimes the reason why you might have a stale smell in your hair is because you aren’t changing your pillowcases often enough. Especially in the cases when you wash your hair at night, you might lose the scent that lingers in your hair after you shower due to the fact that you spend the whole night rubbing against a not-so-fresh pillow. So make sure to wash your bedding regularly!
2. Avoid Heat
If you’ve noticed that your hair doesn’t really smell of anything, even if you use a yummy smelling shampoo, then it’s probably because of heat styling, which includes straightening, blow drying or curling your hair. Cut down on heat and use a heat protectant spray when you do to maintain fresh-smelling strands rather than having them smell burnt.
3. Invest in quality hair oil
There are so many great hair oils available on the market. Not only can they help condition hair, but they also ensure leaving sweet smell on the hair. Oils can come in a range of scents, including lavender and rose. Simply brush the scent through the length of the hair strands and leave it work its magic.
4. Find a shampoo and conditioners with strong scent
The problem of foul smelling hair can be solved by using scented hair products. Use shampoos and conditioners that have fragrance in it. Scented hair serums are easily available in the market. Use them. If you like to use dry shampoo, choose a scented one. It’s just a matter of finding what is right for you!
5. Grab Your Fave Perfume
If you need an instant shot of freshness to your strands, then a few spritzes of your favourite perfume is all you need. Carry one in your bag and spray a bit to your locks, while avoiding your roots. You can also use a yummy-smelling body mist instead of a perfume for a dreamy scent to your locks. Just spray it onto your hairbrush and use it to work in the fragrance.
6. Apple Cider Vinegar
ACV is a great home remedy for dealing with hair odour as well as for freshening your strands. An added bonus is that it leaves your hair softer and shinier. Plus it’s inexpensive and easily available. Dilute the ACV with water and use it as a hair rinse before washing off with a mild shampoo.
7. Dry Shampoo To The Rescue
Every girl must have a bottle lying around to salvage a bad hair day, revive lifeless locks as well as freshen up your hair on a day when you can’t wash it. Spritz some onto your roots and brush it in to add some life to your hair as well as give it a shot of a long-lasting, amazing fragrance.
Good hygienic practices are very important if you want a long lasting good smell for your hair. This is especially important if you exercise regularly or are prone to sweating a lot. Sweat left on hair can make it smell.
As the day goes on, your hair becomes oilier and greasier and sweat begins to turn stale. This cannot be helped, but a few ways to make a nice scent last longer is to take time in the shower to ensure that you have a clean scalp.
9. Flower Power
Dress up your mane with pretty flowers to not only make a pretty style statement but also to ensure that your hair smells fabulous. Floral wreaths for a boho twist or just a single pretty flower or even a traditional gajra work amazing! Have fun experimenting. It’s also a smart way to amp up your regular hairstyle.
10. Rose Water
Rose water is one of the best astringents for you. It is extremely beneficial for your skin. For your hair, rose water doesn’t have any extra benefits. However soaking your hair in rose water can make it fragrant.
