Hair that stinks, although many shy away from talking about it, is a problem that plagues many people. Maybe you have only washed them for a few hours, at most a day, and your scalp is smelly as if you hadn't shampooed. What's the problem? The causes , excluding poor hygiene, are many: excess sebum, dandruff, dry skin, brittle hair, wrong products, air pollution, incorrect nutrition, stress, smoke, the presence of fungi and some types of work, such as chefs.

Like the skin, the hair must also be considered as a kind of sponge . Ergo: they absorb everything around them. Therefore, if the reason for the stinking scalp is not 'internal', it is advisable to take some precautions. For example, if you smoke and can't stop, remember to tie your hair, while if you go on a scooter, before putting on your helmet, place a cotton handkerchief on your head. In this way you will be able to protect the hair a little. Ditto if you do a job that could put a strain on your hair: use a hat or bandana . The rule, therefore, is always that of protection.
