Hair perfumes to cover burnt hair smell (for allergic/sensitive people)?

Hi all,
Does anyone know of any hair perfumes/sprays/lotions etc that will cover up the burnt smell hair usually gets after being straightened (even if heat protectant etc. is used)? I often get allergic reactions (slight swelling, migraine, breathing issues for a LOT of perfumes so ideally looking for something for sensitive people/hypoallegenic).

Thank you

You should go into Lush and have a look at their Hair Custard. It smells amazing! It's a very light styling cream/hair perfume. You only need a tiny bit so it will last ages. I'm sure if you go in and ask about it they'll give you a wee sample to try.

Thanks a lot, I will try and ask for a free sample of it to try. Did check the ingredients on the lush website and some of them (such as perfume and argan oil)may be potentially problematic but won't know for sure until I try. :)

Are you sure your straighteners are OK? Surely burning smell isn't normal?

Errr the burning smell is what needs to change!!!

I straighten my hair daily and there is no smell, burning smell indicates burning that can’t be good for your hair.
