We can't stop the sun from shining hard this summer, but we can use products to fight off the unsettling scents it may cause. We don't mean spraying your hair with perfume, though, because while that sounds easy, perfume can actually irritate or dry out your scalp!
Best Smelling Shampoos
Instead of spritzing alcohol-laden perfume on your hair, keep your locks' freshness in check with a scented shampoo that has your fragrance of choice. Choose from our curated summer-worthy product picks below!
1. The Body Shop Shea Shampoo
This shea butter-infused shampoo doesn't just moisturize dry hair and give you that comforting shea scent. The Body Shop uses Community Trade shea butter to make it, paying for the ingredient at fair price to support the livelihood of Ghanaian communities.
