How to keep your hair from being a stinker bomb

You’re beautiful. alluring. You have that aura that is calm, yet commands attention. When you walk into a room, heads turn in awe. You’re the hot stuff. The ying in the yang. The kpomo in abacha. The it.

Yet, the only thing that keeps people (even potential boos) from coming to as close as a three metre radius around you, is that your hair is the headquarters of all things smelly.😷😷🙊 Sis this doesn’t look good in the books. 🙄

We all love our hair lush, shiny and vibrant. Whether is #teamnatural or braiding out your hair, wearing a wig or going with whatever hair style catches your fancy, one thing is for sure, you want to look dang 🔥 in your hair.

Unfortunately, with all our good hair intentions, just sometimes, our hair reeks. It just takes on a mind of its own and smells like an oozing trash can. Damn! Sis you don’t want to go about being a stinker bomb.🙄🙅🏽‍♀️ Nope. Never. Uh-huh.

Stinky hair is common with braids. Because you don’t wash your hair, all that scalp sweat, dead cell and dandruff, packs in your hair and make it smell really bad.

Othertimes, a couple of other things can contribute to bad hair smell: certain types of chemical hair products, hormonal imbalance and a polluted environment because all the smelly substance in the air may settle on your hair.

What can be done?

Basic things first: Sis. Wash your hair. Use good shampoos. And ensure that your hair dries completely before you cover with a bonnet or scarf(if you’re into this sort of thing). Also get rid of dandruff. Dandruff is evil.😈

Use dry shampoo :if you have braids on and don’t want to wash your hair with the braids on, that’s completely fine. Here’s what you can do. Use a dry shampoo on your braids. It will clean out the debris from your hair and arrest any ill hair odour. Leaving your hair smelling fresh.

Avoid covering your hair for too long: 2020 is the year of hair scarves and bonnets. Girl we need to lay those edges. Okrrrrrr! But also be sure not to use a scarf for too long, because it can lock in moisture and cause your hair to …… Yeah that.

Use scented hair sprays : There are hair products that are scented , mostly for the purpose of helping your hair smell like heaven.

That’s it girl.
