Fight Sweaty Hair Smell Naturally

 

 

Smelly hair can be a big turnoff. Technically our hair smell is neutral until we dip it in something. Pull a strand of hair and smell it and you will realise it is the last thing you applied on it, it can be your hair spray, hair conditioner, cigarette or sweat. One can also have smelly hair after a workout or after a long commute.

 

The problem arises when you let bacteria and fungus grow in your hair without even knowing it. If you have long hair and you workout everyday, there is a
possibility that your damp open hair will act as a catalyst.

 

Vinegar Solution

In a bowl of water add vinegar, tea tree oil and a few drops of lavender oil. Pour this solution in a surface cleaning bottle and spray it on the roots of your hair after a workout or when your hair emits odour. Let it stay on for about 10 minutes and wash it off. Repeat it as and when you need it.

 

Dry Roots

Make sure to towel dry or blow dry your hair after a wash. Damp roots and hair can promote bacteria or fungus growth, which might aggravate the hair odour. You can air dry the rest of your hair.

 

Stop using too much shampoo

Using a shampoo everyday leads to overproduction of sebum, which promotes the growth of bacteria. Brush your hair so that the sebum is spread evenly on your scalp and hair.

 

Aloe vera

Using your fingers apply a thin coat of aloe vera gel on your hair when it emits odour. Aloe vera gel will fight the smell and dryness in the hair.
