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.

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.

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.
