  • hair scent question

    for those of you who go 'no-poo', is there a way to make you hair smell good??... I have been shampoo-free for about 5 months now and I love how healthy my hair is. But, (according to my mom), my hair smells bad...??? I thought it just had no scent, but she said that sometimes it smells bad which made me really self-conscious.... is there a way to make your hair smell good without shampoo?????

    Add some essential oil in your preferred scent to your cider vinegar. A couple drops each time you shampoo'll do it.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

      Thanks for the tip I've wondered too. My husband loves the smell of ACV, so he doesn't mind. But I'd like a smell to linger a little longer than the ACV smell does, and I'd hoped an essential oil would last longer.

      I also keep a spray bottle full of water in case I need a little moisture for my hear to obey, and I bet if I added some essential oils to that it would work like a mild hair perfume.

        A spritz of rose water makes the hair smell lovely also.

          Wash it with water more frequently?

            I've only washed my hair with water for three years. No odour at all. No grease either

              I went back to shampoo/conditioner b/c I missed my hair smelling so good and feeling super soft. Maybe one day I'll go poo-less again and try some of the ideas in this thread...

                A couple drops of lavender oil on my hairbrush makes my hair smell nice.

                  Terrax: Ask your mother to be a bit more specific. Bad smell could be many things. As an example, lavender and rose were suggested in previous posts. They would be a cloying, sickening odors for me, but not for the world. Now the smell of cheddar cheese, or roast beef----exquisite.

                    thanks for the suggestions!! I normally use an essential oil blend and my mom told me that my hair smelled after I hadn't showered in a few days due to being super busy.- but she did say that "sometimes" it smells bad so I took it as more often than that even though I don't usually notice any sort of bad smell. I guess I will just try to rinse it more often and remember to use essential oils more often.

                      Make sure you're using fresh towels too because you could be picking up a musty scent. I noticed just a few days ago a really bad, musty scent in my boyfriend's hair right after he'd taken a shower, and then traced it back to his towel!

                        Just realized this thread is two years old. Oops! Maybe someone else will find my bit of info helpful.

                          I did! Actually, it's an interesting thread to recussitate. I know I'm preferring the "natural" smell, but I know a lot of people prefer to be scented. When I want that I rub a drop or two of lavendar oil along my bottom hairline.
