After straightening my hair, I hate the smell?

I have a real curly hair , I'm talking about small perfect curls and huge fuzzy hair, since my hair is not tall enough to leave it just like that I usually straighten it, but then after I straighten my hair all the good smell of the conditioner is gone and then it doesn't smell good, I hate it because its like when I hug people I feel like they smell it and it doesn't smell good,it smells kinda funny and I hate it !

so are there any solution for that?

  • Try turning the straightener down so its not as hot and also make sure your hair is dry before you straighten the hair. Whatever you do, do not spray perfume on your hair. The alcohol in perfume will damage your hair follicles. Try using a straightening cream from herbal essences or Strictly Straight spray. It smells good and does not add extra grease. Try using luster's pink glosser as well.

  • If you smell burning hair, that's a problem and you might what to turn down your flatiron. If you want an actual scent after you've styled try a scented smoothing balm or serum. But remember! Products with water listed as the first ingredient may mess up your freshly straightened hair! :)

  • use biosilk after your straighten your hair. it smells great, and it is way healthy for your hair. also use a chi heat protectant while straightening, that also prevents the smell a bit. after you have straightened use good smelling hairspray. also when you are in the shower use a good shampoo and conditioner like matrix or boilage, and let the conditioner sit in for ten minutes or so. it is WAY good for your hair and the smell will last better. hope I helped :)

    • Haha yea it did help except that I don't really know about hair products so I have no clue what is biosilk is, so if you would explain more, sorry I have zero knowledge about these stuff =D

    • Haha alright, biosilk is a product that you put in after straightening it. it is called biosilk silk therapy, you run it through your hair. it is just to make smooth especially on your ends and and is also to protect from heat damage.you may want to get a really good straightener that isn't as hard on your hair. try a SEDU. hardly any damage. you can buy the hair products at any beauty store. don't buy from grocery stores! get good shampoo. its really important. and chi products are very good too.

  • The smell is because your hair is being damaged. Do you really not use ANY heat protection spray?! You really really should and they all smell nice and keep your hair healthy when straightening it.

    • Well my friends told me about that but I actually like to change my hair a little I mean sometimes I just have it waves or like baby curls so I think about 10 months of having my hair the same I would die haha

  • I have the exact same problem, my hair is curly and I straighten it almost everyday. I just put Tresseme's anti frizz secret smoothing creme and it smooths it down and smells great.

    But in response to some other people's comments, I use multiple heat protection products but they don't have a strong smell.

  • I have curly hair too and I used to straighten it and I had the same problem. I have a huge "protect the environment" person so I refused to wear hairspray. I used some perfume though but it didn't really help. My hairdresser said it might be the shampoo you use reacting with the heat of your straightener. She told me I had 3 solutions. I could try different shampoos and see which worked the best, or I could invest in a nice straightener. But they can get expensive so only do that if you are planning to straighten your hair for a long time. Get a gold plated and/or ceramic straightener. Conair makes quality straighteners. Or the solution I went with was to stop straightening my hair. It is really bad for your hair anyway, and I like my curly hair. And it also could be if your dry your hair then straighten it. That is really damaging because of all the heat on your hair it can burn it and damage it. Use a diffuser to dry your hair then straighten it. But you can buy products that will make your hair less frizzy. Hope this helped!

    • How does hairspray harm the environment? Wasn't that just the case back when it had CFCs in it, or is there something else?
