Who doesn’t love that fresh feeling and mesmerising scent of just-washed hair? Unfortunately, thanks to the humidity, sweat and pollution, that fantastic smell of your locks is pretty short-lived, till your next wash at least. We give you a few ways to help make your hair smell amazing all the time, these will definitely come to your rescue after a trip to the gym or for an impromptu dinner date. Unwashed locks never smelt this fabulous!
Duh! Naturally, a shampoo that smells divine is a no-brainer when you want delicious-smelling strands. Make sure to work those suds in well, for a long-lasting effect. We love Bumble and Bumble Crème De Coco Shampoo. Check out our top 10 picks of the best smelling shampoos.
A conditioner really helps lock in the scent into your hair, helping that fresh smell last much longer. We like Herbal Essences Touchably Smooth Anti-Frizz Creme for its lingering floral fragrance. Also, a good leave-in is perfect for fighting frizz as your mane dries, making it more manageable as well as setting in a fresh fragrance to last all day long.
Using blow dryers and irons not only zap moisture from your strands but also their scent. Skip the heat styling once in awhile and see how much longer the fresh fragrance of your shampoo lasts. If you must heat-style, use a good heat protectant product like Kerastase Nectar Thermique that will help prevent dryness and damage to your locks as well as amplify their scent.
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.
Lavender oil or Jasmine oil smell absolutely divine; work it into your roots and strands before washing to help your locks smell irresistible as well as grow faster. For a citrusy scent lemon juice is perfect and it also helps combat dandruff, just make sure to wash it off thoroughly as it can lighten the colour of your hair in the sun. Soaking your hair with rose water is also a great idea to help your mane smell irresistibly fresh.
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. We like LUSH No Drought Dry Shampoo for being one of the best smelling ones around and for leaving your mane looking and feeling so fresh.
