How To Make Your Hair Smell Amazing All Day Long!

Posted By:

Smelly hair is an awful put off, isn't it? It not only signals poor hygiene, but can also determine how you feel throughout the day. Fresh, clean smelling hair can boost your mood and also make you feel fresh all over. It's really fun to come up with tricks and ideas on how to make your hair smell amazing.

Say, you have a date coming and there is no time to wash your hair, or even if you do, somehow, just your shampoo doesn't do the trick. Well, we have a few tips and tricks to make your hair smell amazing no matter what!

After all, you don't want the guy to be sniffing your hair and getting the whiff of something bad, and then associating your hair with that bad smell. You want to be associated with happy, clean smells. Smelling great creates a great impression on anyone meeting you for the first time, as it signals that you take care of yourself.

Also, our hair tends to hold in scents for a lot longer than the body does, so that's another reason to make sure your hair smells amazing all day long!


Body Spray

Did you know that you can actually use a body spray on your hair? This makes the scent stay for literally the entire day. Try getting a good quality spray and make sure you don't spray it too close to the roots, as the alcohol could end up clogging your hair follicles. This is such a great trick on how to get your hair to smell amazing all day long.


Good Smelling Shampoo

Have a special, great smelling shampoo reserved for special days. This might be a little more high end than your everyday shampoo, but trust us, you want a special shampoo for days when you just need a pick me up and for days when you just don't know how to get your hair to smell amazing.


Dry Shampoo

When you just don't have time to wash your hair, all you need is your trusty dry shampoo. Dry shampoo can be a real saviour on days when you just make it out of bed and your hair is super greasy. This fixes the greasiness in no time and leaves a clean scent, so you can fake clean and fragrant hair.



Most leave-in-conditioners we know of, have really nice, fruity smells. And they are great for the hair. They moisturise the hair right after a wash and make it look like it's all in place.


Essential Oils

Coat your hair brush or comb with an essential oil of your choice and run it along your hair. This would ensure that you get your hair to smell amazing without making it greasy with the oil at all. We really like the smell of lavender and rose essential oils.



Change your pillowcases regularly. One pillowcase should be used for only a week at a time, because pillowcases collect the dirt and grime from your hair and face overnight along with dirt from your home.


Mask Treatment

Once a week use a deep conditioning mask treatment that smells amazing. The smell from these masks stays on for days on end. This is one of the best ways to hair that smells amazing, because it also conditions the hair, while making it smell great.
