How to Get Rid of Burnt Hair Smell


Ventilate the area

Ventilate the area by opening windows and turning on fans to disperse fresh air and remove the smoky odor.


Wash your hair

Shampoo your hair thoroughly to eliminate any lingering smell of smoke. Utilize a scented shampoo or one with a fresh scent to disguise the odor.


Use a vinegar rinse

Mix equal portions of water and white vinegar, and then rinse your hair with this solution. Allow it to rest for a few minutes before rinsing.


Apply a hair mask

Look for masks with natural ingredients, such as aloe vera or coconut oil, which can restore moisture and conceal odor.


Use dry shampoo

If you cannot promptly wash your hair, use dry shampoo to absorb odors and oils. Apply it to the roots of your hair and comb it through to revitalize it.


Apply a leave-in conditioner

After shampooing your hair, apply a leave-in conditioner or hair perfume with a soothing fragrance. This can assist in masking any lingering burnt scent.


Avoid heat styling

To prevent further damage and avoid exacerbating the burnt scent, refrain from using heated styling tools on your hair until the smell has subsided.


Consult a professional

If the scent of burnt hair persists or if your hair is severely damaged, you should consult a professional hairstylist.
