quick tips to get Cigarette Smell Out of your Hair

I'm one of those people who is, very often, in a place where people smoke. After all, we live in a country where almost everyone smokes. Its becoming a surprise to meet someone who doesn't!!

i come home, take my make up off, brush my teeth and then deliberate for maybe 10 whole seconds on whether to wash my hair or not because it STINKS of smoke. But honestly, after all the dancing, i usually give in to the little voice in my head which is saying "go to sleep lahhhh... we can worry about washing hair tomorrow".

So long story short, i end up waking up the next morning, with the same devilish voice in my head again, and go to work with my hair still stinking.

Cigarette smell can not only annoy you but it can also turn off the people around you. So this post is for all the ladies out there, who need a quick trick or two to remove the cigarette odor from your hair without washing it to make sure we smell as fresh as possible (so the boss doesn't know how hard you partied last night).

How to Get Cigarette Smoke Out of Dry Hair
By Ian Moore, eHow Contributor

1. Lemon juice

Rub a little lemon juice throughout your hair and scalp. Although washing your hair is the most effective way to get cigarette odor out, you may not have the time to get your hair wet. With this simple solution, the acids in the lemon juice help combat the strong odor of the cigarette smoke. Lemon juice is also helpful in eliminating the cigarette odor from your hands as well.

2. Febreeze and other herbal sprays will work.

Another way to hide the smell is by spraying your hair with a scent. Stay away from perfumes because the chemicals will actually dry out your hair. Instead use any of the Herbal Essence or Febreze scented spray products. There are an array of sprays available. Experiment and see which ones work best. Stay away from alcohol-based products.

3. Dry shampoo

Apply dry shampoo. A relatively new product on the market, dry shampoo is said to be a quick remedy to a bad hair day when you don't have the time or a way to wash your hair. Although it does not thoroughly clean your hair as well as regular shampoo, it does leave your hair with a scent which could be enough to mask the cigarette smell.

4. Fabric Softener Sheets

Rub a fabric softener sheet throughout your hair. Not only does it make your clothing smell fresh but can also do wonders on your hair. Experiment with different scents and see which ones are the most effective.

Try these steps one at a time or combine them to ensure that there will be no trace of the cigarette smoke left on your hair. Your hair will be smelling great in no time.

Air fresheners in the cars are acclimated to affectation added smells. They are not able to annihilate smells like that of cigarettes. This aroma acts as an irritant
