Is there a way to stop my hair from soaking in certain smells?

Asked by free_fallin (4429points) March 16th, 2010

My hair seems to trap scents, such as smoke, coconuts, waffle cones, etc. Is there any way (besides avoiding these smells) to stop this from happening? Perhaps a shampoo?

I don’t think so.

Hair with a waffle cone scent sounds delightful!

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities It is! It’s just the other smells that I don’t like. It doesn’t soak in everything, just certain ones which is odd to me.

Nope. Hair is porous, so it soaks up a lot of things just as our skin does.

Have you been bathing in waffle cones?
Or coconuts? How does that even happen? I want to smell like a waffle cone.

@Facade Crap. Thanks!

@rangerr lol When I’m around a place where they make waffle cones, I leave and the smell stays in my hair. Same thing with fresh coconuts. It’s fucking odd!

You will need a frizzer conditioner to stop this from happening.

Or at lest try a de-frizzer.

You could try hair spray and see what effect that has.

Why would you ever want your hair to stop smelling like waffle cones!?

@mrrich724 That one I like! It’s the others, love.

Cut it?

Well then I don’t know what to say. The only thing I can think of is maybe wrap it when you are around the strong odors? I know even that won’t be possible all the time. But I used to have this problem when I went to my grandma’s house (latin lady who LOVED to cook aromatic latin food)

There was no way around it.

I condition the heck out of my hair, and I’ve noticed that it doesn’t pick up odors as easily. The only thing it’ll pick up is cigarette smoke, I think that’s pretty much unavoidable if you’re going to be around smoke.
