===Keeping Smells Out of Your Hair===
#Wash your hair regularly. This may seem like an obvious solution, but it’s key, particularly if you have oily hair.  Oily hair tends to pick up environmental smells.<ref>https://ift.tt/2zWHtx0> Try to wash your hair every other day or a minimum of twice a week.<ref>http://www.boldsky.com/beauty/hair-care/2013/ten-natural-ways-to-make-hair-smell-good-034176.html</ref>[[Image:Make Your Hair Smell Better Longer Step 1 Version 2.jpg|center]]

#Stop smoking.  Smoke can cling to your hair and linger there for a long time, and it’s very hard to mask it. If you can’t completely stop smoking, try to only smoke outside and never in enclosed areas like cars.  If you live or work with people who smoke, do your best to stay away from them while they’re smoking or encourage them to do it outside.<ref>http://youqueen.com/beauty/hair/how-to-make-your-hair-smell-good/</ref>[[Image:Make Your Hair Smell Better Longer Step 2 Version 2.jpg|center]]

#Cover your hair in smelly environments. If you work in a kitchen or are going to be at a smoke-filled party, cover your hair if you can. <ref>https://ift.tt/2zWHtx0> In a kitchen, wear a hairnet, kerchief, or a hat if the dress code permits. At a party, opt for a hat or a cute bandana.<ref>http://youqueen.com/beauty/hair/how-to-make-your-hair-smell-good</ref>[[Image:Make Your Hair Smell Better Longer Step 3 Version 2.jpg|center]]

#Wash your headgear and pillowcases. Anything that comes in contact with your hair (hats, kerchiefs, helmets, scrunchies, headbands, and pillowcases) can pick up the smell of your hair when it’s not clean and then transfer that smell back to you when you wear them on clean hair. Keep these items as clean as possible.<ref>http://youqueen.com/beauty/hair/how-to-make-your-hair-smell-good</ref>[[Image:Make Your Hair Smell Better Longer Step 4 Version 2.jpg|center]]

#Clean out your brush or comb. Especially if you use products that build up in your hair and on your brush, you could be forcing smells into your hair when you brush it. Try to clean them out about once a week.<ref>http://youqueen.com/beauty/hair/how-to-make-your-hair-smell-good</ref>[[Image:Make Your Hair Smell Better Longer Step 5 Version 2.jpg|center]]

#Avoid sharing a brush with pets. Zoophilic fungi grow on animals and can transfer themselves to humans. These fungi breed in warm, damp conditions, so even if you wash your hair, you may not be able to remove them.<ref>http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2014492/Have-got-Smelly-Hair-Syndrome.html</ref>[[Image:Make Your Hair Smell Better Longer Step 6 Version 2.jpg|center]]

#Use dry shampoo. Dry shampoo is designed to absorb oil and will help soak up smells as well. Spray it liberally onto your hair before you come into contact with smells. Make sure that you spray it all over your hair. After you encounter the smells, brush your hair thoroughly to help release them from the hair. [[Image:Use-Dry-Shampoo-Step-3.jpg|center]]

#Spray perfume on your hair or brush.  You can buy a variety of perfumes designed especially for hair, and these are your best option. You can use regular perfume occasionally as well, but since it’s not designed for hair, it can leave your hair oily or dry, so use it infrequently. <ref>http://youqueen.com/beauty/hair/how-to-make-your-hair-smell-good</ref>[[Image:Make Your Hair Smell Better Longer Step 7.jpg|center]]

#Use essential oils. Many are antimicrobial and can help you avoid scalp infections (which tend to lead to smelly hair). Tea tree oil, lavender oil, vanilla oil, and peppermint oil are all good options.  Add 2-3 drops to a cup of water, and massage the mixture into your scalp. Leave it in for about twenty minutes before you shampoo your hair.  <ref>http://www.boldsky.com/beauty/hair-care/2013/ten-natural-ways-to-make-hair-smell-good-034176.html</ref>[[Image:Make Your Hair Smell Better Longer Step 8.jpg|center]]

#Try scented hairsprays, serums, and dry shampoos. Particularly if you already use hair products, add a delicious smelling one into your routine.  Smells from these products won’t necessarily last all day, so consider keeping small refresher bottles with you in a purse or bag.  <ref>http://youqueen.com/beauty/hair/how-to-make-your-hair-smell-good</ref>[[Image:Make Your Hair Smell Better Longer Step 9.jpg|center]]

#Use a deep conditioner about once every two weeks.  Deep conditioners are designed to keep your hair soft and prevent breakage, but they can also add delightful smells to your hair.

#Make your own shampoo. Many beauty experts believe that store bought shampoos strip the natural oil out of your hair.  One advantage to making your own shampoo is that you can make it smell however you want! There are dozens of recipes out there, but here’s one that doesn’t call for too many hard-to-find ingredients. Mix together the following and use like regular shampoo:<ref>http://www.thankyourbody.com/all-natural-shampoo/</ref>[[Image:Make Your Hair Smell Better Longer Step 11.jpg|center]]

#Make a rinse out of lemons.  Lemons are great for making your hair smell fresh, and they also fight dandruff.  Shampoo your hair first. Squeeze two fresh lemons into 1 cup of water, and then massage the juice into your hair. <ref>https://ift.tt/2PZnqsq> Let it soak for up to ten minutes.

*See a doctor if you nothing else works.  Sometimes very smelly hair can be a result of an infection. If you are experiencing other symptoms such as a fever, chills, vomiting, or a rash, or if nothing is improving the smell of your hair, talk to a physician.<ref>https://ift.tt/2A6WA7j> Occasionally, smelly hair can also be the result of a hormonal imbalance.
