New Delhi: The humidity in the air can leave your scalp smelling foul. To avoid the embarrassment, choose the right shampoo, keep yourself hydrated and alter your diet. Capital-based hair transplant surgeon Sakshee Sareen shares tips on how to keep scalp odour under control:

- Wash hair daily to keep the scalp clean. Use medicated shampoos that have anti-fungal and anti-bacteria ingredients.

- Drink more water to keep your body hydrated and cool.

- Avoid caffeinated drinks, because caffeine boosts body temperature.

- Reduce intake of alcohol. It causes the blood vessels to enlarge which in turn increases body heat.

- Try to lead an anxiety and stress free life as anxiety is known to induce sweating.

- Dedicate some time to yoga or meditation to relieve stress and anxiety.
