There’s nothing more attractive than beautiful hair spreading a sweet perfume.

Hair scent inspiration was seen on models with flower-crowned hair walking down the runway at the Valentino Paris Fashion Week and Rodarte Spring Collection shows.

Product build-up and neglecting your hair, and scalp, can lead to bad odour.

A consistent shampoo and conditioner regimen will instantly purify oily roots and hydrate dry hair, leaving it clean and soft.

Care for your crown by using products with long-lasting scents and natural oils such as shea butter, coconut oil and lavender.

Protective styles like braids and cornrows should also be revived using refresher spray or hair mist because dandruff and oils can get trapped in between the hair.

How to make your crown smell good all-day:

1. There are specific fragrances formulated to give your locks a desirable fragrance without weighing it down or damaging it. Spritz a bit onto your hairbrush before combing through your mane.

2. Wash your pillowcases and accessories regularly as oils from your hair can create an odour. Use a satin bonnet to further protect your hair.

3. Remove hair stuck between your comb or brush bristles and wash the comb to remove product build-up.

4. Use hair food and scalp treatment to prevent odour-causing issues such as dandruff.
