Hilab/Scent (Hadith No. 258)
Volume 1, Book 5, Number 258:
Whenever the Prophet took the bath of Janaba (sexual relation or wet dream) he asked for the Hilab or some other scent. He used to take it in his hand, rub it first over the right side of his head and then over the left and then rub the middle of his head with both hands.
So we have another Sunnah. Use scented shampoos/leave-on conditioners. Or, use a scent after taking shower. Just smell good, okay? :)
