Those of you who sweat like a pig know the cons of smelly hair, don’t you? The scalp is forever itchy, and there’s a strange odour that refuses to go.  Ewww!

If you’ve tried using your regular deodorants or perfumes to get rid of that fishy smell, STOP now! That’s because they are harmful for your hair, and will cause more damage than good. So, how about making your own hair perfume that has the goodness of natural ingredients? Sounds like a plan! 

This homemade hair perfume will not just nourish your hair, but lock in moisture, so that your tresses don’t get all dry and frizzy.

To make this hair perfume, you need:

  • ½ cup rose water
  • Around 4 drops of pure vanilla extracts
  • Approx 20-25 drops of grapefruit essential oil
  • 10 drops of jasmine essential oil
  • One spray bottle

This is how you can make this hair perfume

  • Mix all the ingredients thoroughly, until they mix well.
  • Now, heat them over a very light flame, so that they can blend well.
  • Once the mixture cools down, store it in a bottle. 

Spray after every wash or whenever you think your hair has a weird and unbearable odour!

Benefits of this DIY hair perfume

Ladies, this hair perfume is not just a fragrant concoction for your hair, but all the ingredients that are used promote good hair health

1. Jasmine oil – Jasmine oil is light and penetrates into your scalp without giving your mane a greasy look. This oil helps to moisturize your hair, and you don’t even have to give your scalp a separate massage!

2. Vanilla extract – This will not just give your hair a beautiful fragrance, but if you have dry hair then vanilla extract works like a magic pill. Your hair stays moist and well-nourished, and you might dodge a chance of getting split ends as well.

3. Grapefruit extract – Grapefruit is amazing for those who have dandruff issues, as it contains vitamin C. Do you know that dandruff when mixed with sweat can give you an itchy scalp? Yes, my dear, it can cause a total mess. On top of that, it can cause under-nourished hair follicles by clogging the pores on your scalp. Grapefruit extract kills the bacteria and keeps your scalp health in check.

So, bid adieu to smelly hair because now that you know how to make this amazing DIY perfume!
