    Default How to remove smoke smell from hair without washing?

    Going to be in a smokey environment later tonight and don't want to keep washing my hair for every little thing; any way I can remove, or at least reduce, the smell of smoke without washing it again?

    I've hit mine with fabreeze, air freshener, perfume. Smoke clings, as a smoker, I really know its totally impossible to remove without washing it. But you could try Co-washing and skip the shampoo?

    You could try a few drops of essential oils and a little jojoba oil and water in a spray mister bottle.
    I use this all the time just because I like the subtle, natural fragrance it gives my hair! Patchouli & tangerine is a wonderful mix....

    unless you can stand under the sun for quite a bit with your hair spreaded, (that's how I inmediatly kill smoke smell from clothes without washing) I don't think you can't get away without washing!

    If you can wear your hair in a bun and in a scarf or covering, your hair won't get as smoky. I would also use some oil and bpal/perfume in your hair ahead of time, it will keep your hair smelling better than if you didn't use it. But only washing will get the nasty smell out.

    When I was a smoker, I tried to disguise the smell by putting a couple drops of my favourite conditioner + a little water on my hands and running it through my hair.
    Depending on how strong the smell of your conditioner is, and how heavy the smoking is, it may or may not work very well.
    But as everyone mentioned before, you can't really remove that smell without washing, it clings to hair like the devil!
    If you're worried about shampooing too often because of potential dryness, you can always use conditioner instead (yes, just as if it was a shampoo)

    You could try dry shampoo..batiste has an overwhelming fragrance and although i like it overall, it seems to mask a ton of yucky smelling stuff. But I think anything you put over the smoke smell, will still smell a little bit smoky.
