    I am a full time Alevel student with two part time jobs so as you can imagine I don't have a lot of spare time on my hands. One of my jobs is in a kitchen and the other is in a care home. When I get out of the kitchen I stink of burgers and chips and I don't think the elderly people I look after enjoy the smell of fat fryers before bed. I normally have time to shower but not to wash and dry my hair. Does anyone have any tips on getting the smell out of my hair or even covering it up without fully washing it everyday? I already wear a hat and tie my hair in a pony tail. Any tips would be appreciated

    Aaaaaah I used to work in a kitchen, I know that. It's terrible. But I don't have any tips for you really, except for considering cutting your hair short. Then it will be dry in no time. Or try to wear a tight cap at work? I don't know if that will really help, though.

    My sympathies!

    lemon juice applied to the hair will make it smell and feel citrus fresh. you can either squeeze a lemon directly on to your barnet or use on of those squeezy lemon things.

    i worked in a restaurant kitchen and then would go out to the bar after work for a few drinks and often ended up out with friends so i started using dry shampoo to combat this issue
