What to do About Hair Odor & Scalp Odor

smelly scalpphoto by urban_data

If you have got an itchy scalp irritation problem or something of that sort, there is a slight chance that you also have a smelly scalp or hair odor issue too. Chances are that if your scalp sensitivity(itchy, tender, oily, greasy, or whatever else may be the problem) is caused by fungus or bacteria, this may result in a musty unpleasant odor in addition to your other symptoms.

These kinds of things are viewed as an embarrassment and because of these feelings of self-consciousness and embarrassment, perhaps you may not feel like seeking help and advice. Perhaps you have tried all kinds of natural scalp treatments, as well as over-the-counter (OTC) products that have helped temporarily only to have these unwanted symptoms develop again. Well, if this happens there is one good option that maybe you have not yet tried. Consulting a doctor or dermatologist about your scalp issues is your best and maybe even last resort. These consultations can be rather financially expensive which is the biggest reason people would rather solve their own medical problems by themselves. Well, a specially trained doctor may be able to give you the best advice, and finding a doctor with an expertise in this area can be very beneficial to you.

Disguise the Hair | Scalp Odor

In the mean time, there are hair products that can disguise the odor emitting from your hair and scalp. Washing your hair with a medicated anti-dandruff shampoo and/or conditioner regularly will help to control the smelly smell. You may want to rotate the medicated hair washes with moisturizing and restorative shampoos and conditioners so as to maintain the health and shine of your hair. In addition to regular washing, you can use products such as hair fragrance, dry shampoo, and hair odor eaters to help with the stinky scalp problem. Think of these types of things as Febreze for your hair.

I think that if you have a scalp with bad odor you could get rid of it by dusting it with a good talcum powder a mild one like the baby powder mostly on the roots. Of course its gonna make your hair a bit dry but that's good coz' smelly scalp is due to excess oil secretion and this helps try it!
