Don't wash before a walk

On the morning of our shorter hike I washed my hair as usual with a cheap fruity shampoo purchased in Cyprus and didn't think anything of it, however...
After walking in the woods with sun beaming down and going up hill for nearly an hour I obviously started to sweat a fair bit. Apparently the sweat and the smell of the fruit shampoo attracts LOTS of flies who swarmed around me buzzing near my ears and trying to land on my face. After a long time of wafting them away, I ended up having to walk with a t-shirt wrapped around my head and a trail of flies behind me I was not a happy bunny.
So do not wash your hair with fruit smelling shampoo moments before going for a hike in damp woods.
