Waking up to hair that looks fresh, but has an unpleasant odor is a common problem many of us face. Here 4 common causes you may not know could be making your hair smell:

 

Overwashing

Stripping the natural oils from your hair too often can lead to an overproduction of oil from the scalp, leading to an unpleasant odor.

 

Seborrheic Dermatitis

This is a common skin condition characterized by a dry flaky scalp. To make up for the dryness that your scalp is experiencing, the body produces excess oil, which causes odorous hair.

 

Stress

When we are overstressed, the hormones in our body tend to fluctuate. We also sweat from a different type of sweat gland – known as the apocrine glands – when we are stressed than when we are overheated. These secrete a white, odorous substance that is secreted into the hair follicles on our underarms and scalp.

 

Environmental Factors

Day-old hair just doesn’t have the same clean smell as freshly washed hair. Our hair picks up odors from the environment, office, and restaurants, leaving our hair smelling less than ideal.

Use it either overnight for maximum oil and sweat absorption OR during the day as a quick fix for odorous hair.
