Orange juice and peels are great for deodorizing your hair. It will also help control dandruff and excess oiliness. You can use it once or twice a week.

  • Fill a mason jar with orange peels and pour in organic apple cider vinegar. Store it in a cupboard for two weeks. Then strain the infusion and store it in the refrigerator. Put two tablespoons of the liquid in a 12- or 16-ounce spray bottle of water. Spray it on your hair after washing. Rinse it off after a few minutes.
  • Boil orange peel powder in water. Allow it to cool. Rinse your hair with the solution. Let it sit for about 10 minutes before washing it off. To make orange peel powder, dry orange peels under the sun for a week and then grind them.

  1. I think I had this problem. Smelled like wet dog as websites have described it. One day I had the idea that since bacteria is what makes things smell bad, there must be some bad smelling bacteria on my scalp prob eating away at my greasy hair. Well I took a handful of hand sanitizer to my head and the problem dissapeared immediately. Just now I did thr same with my pillow case, and smell is gone from it too. Sure it might cause haur damage but I dont care enough

  2. Omg, I am so glad I found this website! I have had a stinky scalp for the longest time. It was so bad that I would get a headache from myself. The smell was so embarrassing that I was afraid to get close to anyone, especially when I was sweating or hadn’t washed my hair for a day or two. Not only did the smell get on my pillows, caps, etc., it was just awful! I finally got rid of the smell from my clothes, pillow cases etc, by washing them with white vinegar, Tide laundry detergent, & Downy Unstoppable for freshness (works wonderfully)! For my stinky scalp I blended two Roma tomatoes in my blender & slathered it all over my hair, scalp, back, & chest, as this is where I thought the smell might have penetrated my skin. After doing this one time and leaving this one my hair and body for a few hours, the smell was literally gone, except for a small part on the crown of my head. It is my second day after doing this and I haven’t washed my hair, and no stink and super greasy hair or face either!

  3. One thing that’s always worked great for me is once or twice a week I’ll fill a gallon bucket with warm water and a few ounces of bleach, soak my washrag and sponge (with a mild scrubby-side like a kitchen sponge) and use the bleach-water mix when lathering up to kill germs. The scrubby-sponge scrubs off dead skin, which smells rancid if you don’t exfoliate, like under arms, between legs, arms, back, legs, feet, etc… Then after rinsing, use a nicely scented oil-free glycerin-based lotion, like Nivea, and dry first with the damp washrag to chamois the heavy water off and also thin out the lotion before towel drying. This also helps keep the towel from getting soaking wet and musty. Now your clean, sanitized and lightly moisturized without it costing barely a dime.

  4. I am so thankful to have found this site! I thought I was going crazy when my hair began smelling about 7 months ago after some strange virus! I thought It was the shampoo with coconut because the smell was like rancid coconut. I will definitely be trying some of these ideas! I am mortified to think people have noticed because it’s a very strong smell to me!

  5. These past few days, when I was rubbing my scalp, it smells really bad on ny fingertips.. Thanks that i found this site.. Hope it can be helpful to get rid of these smelly scalp, it kinda ruins my day.. 😞

  6. My smell is more of a sharp ,harsh ,pungent ,oh so god awful smell I have ever smelled in my life smell.
    I’m about ready to cut it all off. Shave it really. The smell makes me sick to my stomach . Really I gag.
    I’m going to try every remedy above until this small is gone.

  7. bentonite clay ..get your hair wet sprinkle bentonite clay in your hair…lather it a little…let it sit for 5 min….rinse it out…An odor is not always from bacteria and in this day and age, it is usually a break down of chemical compounds you are smelling…The good thing about bentonite clay is it absorbs toxins and bacteria, unlike other methods that only do one or the other.

  8. i used rosemary oil to combat my scalp smell and it works great.
    i only apply the oil when my scalp is itchy and smelly, on as need basis
    not only it works, rosemary oil helps to grow more dense hair on my scalp, a good side benefit.
