10 Ways to Keep Your Hair Smelling Good
Do you ever go through your day and start moving your head and notice your hair isn't smelling the best, despite the fact that you showered? I'm sure we've all been in this situation at some point. Your hair may not smell as nice as you would like it to due to a variety of factors such as sweat, heat, and pollution, and washing it every day isn't the best option for your hair because it strips away the natural oil of your hair, but don't worry, there are still ways to keep your hair smelling nice, a few tricks you can try, and here are 10 ways to keep your hair smelling good.
1. Scented natural oils
Natural oils are one of the best and most natural ways to keep your hair smelling good. After you shower, just apply a drop or two on the palm of your hand and go over your hair. Coconut oil and lavender oil will leave your hair smelling great and also moisturized.
2. Hair mists
Hair mists are perfumes that are specially made for your hair, and investing in a good hair mist is such a great way to keep your hair smelling good all day long. Check if your favorite perfume comes in a hair mist!
3. Hair spray
Did you know that hair sprays aren't only used for hairstyling? After a blowout or even before you head to work, keep your hairdo in place by spritzing a scented hair spray. They will give support to your hair locks and make your hair smell good. Two birds, one stone!
4. Nice smelling shampoo
I'm the kind of person who picks a shampoo based on its scent. Of course, this could be wrong, but a good scented shampoo that matches your hair type can leave your hair smelling great for hours. However, if you really like your shampoo but hate its smell, you could add a few drops of lavender oil or rose water to make it smell better.
5. Leave-in conditioner
I must say, leave-in conditioners are such a great invention! Not only do they leave your hair soft, but also they make your hair smell like it is freshly shampooed. It's a great treatment for frizzy hair too.
6. Take care with heat
A fresh blowout is always a good idea, but its consequences are not. If you'll subject your hair to heat, you'll have to do it smartly in order not to damage your hair. Make sure to tell your hairdresser to lower the heat settings to avoid burning your hair ends. If you're straightening your hair at home, make sure to go easy on your hair locks, to avoid the burning smell.
7. Lemon juice
Of course, lemon juice can combat the bad flu, but its benefits are way more than that! If you apply some lemon juice on your hair then rinse it before you get out of the shower, your hair will smell great for a day or two.
It's important to remember that if you have sensitive skin, you should avoid using it because it will irritate it. Lemon can also cause your hair to dry out, so don't use it too frequently.
Have you ever tried to spritz some rose water on your hair while showering? Well, it's about time you try this amazing trick! After you wash your hair, apply some rose water directly on your hair and it will smell great when it dries.
9. Scented dry shampoo
If a dry shampoo can be a lifesaver, a scented dry shampoo is just a dream come true! Make it through the super busy days with fresh smelling hair, by applying some scented dry shampoo on your hair and you are ready to go!
10. Add vanilla to your shampoo
If you like the smell of vanilla, try this trick! Add vanilla powder to your shampoo, conditioner, or cream, and enjoy the refreshing scent of vanilla.
5 tips to keep your hair smelling good all the time:
1. Make sure to wash your hair tools and keep the hair accessories you wear always clean, like hair ties, clips, headbands, and so on.
2. Avoid sitting in places full of smokers, as cigarette smoke smell sticks to the hair's scent.
3. If you don't have hair spray or perfume, spritz a very small amount of your favorite perfume on your hair from a distance. Do not spray it directly on your hair to avoid damaging it!
4. Before leaving the house, spray perfume on the sides of your neck, as it's considered one of the strongest pulse spots and it's close to the hair. You can also spritz at the nape of the neck right below your hairline.
5. Always change your pillowcase because, if you think about it, you go to sleep each night transferring oils from your hair and face to your pillowcase, resulting in you sleeping on a not-so-clean pillowcase.
