Dear Dr. Boli: The shampoo I always buy has a starburst on the label now that says “New! 24-hour Ocean Breeze fragrance!” But I don’t want my hair to smell like shampoo all day. What can I do about this? —Sincerely, A Woman with Wet Hair Staring at a Shampoo Bottle.
Dear Madam: What you need to do is follow up the shampoo with an “unscented” conditioner. This should counteract the “Ocean Breeze” fragrance. Make sure you buy a 24-hour unscented conditioner, however, or your hair may start to smell like dead fish and seagull droppings again later in the day.
