Hair Care Tips To Get Rid Of Odor
And sadly, even though it is easy to take care of the cleaning part, some ladies find it extremely difficult to get rid of that incessant odor that keeps floating around their head irrespective of the shampoos, conditioners, hair sprays, perfumes and what not!
It is true that hair has a natural odor which is usually pleasant. However, in some cases this odor could turn out to be too overwhelming (stale and pungent) and can in fact even cause people around you to feel nauseous or dizzy.
So if you find everyone complaining about your stinky hair more often than not, then it’s time you did something to curb it. And if you are wondering as to where to start, then here are some effective tips that can help you get rid of smelly hair (of course we mean the smell on the hair).

The best way to avoid odor buildup in the hair is to wash it regularly. The grease and dirt that collect in the hair follicles can produce a bad smell with time and so need to be washed off before they could do any damage.
A Proper Wash Routine
Make note that it is not only the scalp that can attract dirt, grease and other impurities. Even the tips can catch onto impurities and develop foul odors due to the same. And so when washing your hair, make it a point to start from the roots and then move down to the tips, neglecting no area in between.
Rather than using a strong shampoo that can possibly damage the hair follicles, opt for a mild shampoo that can effectively rinse out any impurities from your hair.
Use a strong conditioner instead as this can leave a strong fragrance on your hair even after you rinse it off and keep your hair smooth, shiny and fragrant for long periods afterwards. Accordingly opt for conditioners that have strong fragrances, preferably ones that have a fruity smell.
If your hair continues to smell bad in spite of repeated shampooing and conditioning, then you can opt for oil massages using fragrant oils (rose, lavender or jasmine fragrances would be good). Accordingly, massage some oil into your scalp and roots and in the night and take a shower the next morning.
When washing your hair the next day, make sure that you use a shampoo and conditioner that do not contain any specific fragrance. If so, they may either curb the smell produced by the oil or may react with the same to create an overpowering fragrance.
Hair that sweats a lot tends to smell a lot too. If you find your hair sweating a lot, then chances are your scalp is getting overheated quite frequently.
If this is the case, you can opt for hair oils with cooling properties (herbal oils with constituents like amla, henna and ashwagandha are considered best) that help soothe the scalp and curb excessive sweating. This in turn would effectively reduce the foul smell that emanates from your hair whenever you move out into the sun.
The Use Of Hair Fragrances

Of course if oiling, shampooing and conditioning do not seem to have any effect on your hair odor, you can opt for hair fragrances. Make sure that you opt for a high quality hair spray or fragrance (preferably a branded one) that does not cause any harm to your hair.
Spraying the hair fragrance directly on the hair can cause it to smell too fragrant. A better way to make sure that your hair smells just right is to spray some of the hair fragrance onto your hair brush and then brush your hair with it.
Make sure your hair is partially wet (not too damp though) when you brush it. This enables the fragrance to reach all areas of the scalp in addition to staying on your hair even after the latter dries.
