What is Smelly Hair Syndrome?

After a night at a club or a barbecue with friends is normal for your hair to smell like smoke, but it is easily solved with a simple washing, when applying shampoo and conditioner. What would you do if the smell would never go away, no matter how careful you are to hygiene?


According to the Daily Mail, there are people who suffer from smelly hair syndrome, a condition that can put them in embarrassing situations, being judged and labeled by other people who do not know that they face a real problem.

“The culprit is certain glands that produce sebum,” says Glenn Lyons, from the Philip Kingsley Trichological clinic. “The more oily hair you have, the more you are prone to odor because it attracts polluting elements, chemicals and smoke. Scalp also has many glands, and some that secrete sweat, so no matter what shampoo is used, some people emit odors every day. “

In addition, if your hair is generally dry, you have nothing to worry about, but if it is oily and, moreover, if you use too many cosmetics (hair spray, foam), you are more likely to develop this condition. Hormonal changes can also trigger this unpleasant condition.

In combination with this can occur, acne and skin irritation, especially if you have a hormonal imbalance. The first step you should do is to reduce the production of sebum, which can be done by frequent washing, even twice a day, in extreme cases. Use a mild shampoo to rinse thoroughly.

Another reason for releasing odor is represented by a totally inappropriate diet so your body eliminates many toxins. In addition, due to rare but not insignificant cause, is represented by various fungi infections. These may affect the inside or outside of the hair.

How can you avoid this problem?

Do not brush with objects of another person, because you can get all sorts of bacteria and microbes and thus triggers various ailments. If, however, you have contracted such a problem, stay away from moisture and go to your doctor to prescribe special products to treat.
