embarrasing healthy question
    #3267972 - 10/23/04 03:42 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Okay this is really weird, I think that it may be my diet but I can't pinpoint what's changed enough to cause this...

Well, my head smells. My hair usually gets a little bit greasy by night time, but now it's insanely bad. After work, my head just reaks like I've been running around with a toque on it all day. It's embarassing as fuck!? Do I not shower enough? I shower each morning. Work lonnng shifts, so by the time they're over I smell.

I tried switching to head and shoulders, but I'm at work on my break now and I've noticed that it's starting to smell. It's not horrible or anything, but I'm very critical and if I can smell it.. god know what other people are thinking.

Can anyone recommend a good shampoo that can remedy this? My hair's fine otherwise. Couldn't complain about it really. I'm hoping someone will be able to help me out here. Thanks.

Well I've noticed girls that use shampoo with a strong fruity scent to it. Smells really good, on a chick anyway

Do you wear a hat all the time, that could be it if you do. If you eat garlic and onions, it can smell when u sweat. Unless you have an infection festering, it cant smell that bad. But if you wear a hard hat at work, that can cause it to smell. It may just be you...how the hell do u smell your own head anyways? I dont even wash my head every day, and it smells the way its suppose to smewll probably. USe a nice smelling shampoo, and theres no such thing as a girlie shampoo...your allowed to smell like nice shit too. Good luck.

Hmm.. well I had my head down, and as I rose I got a whiff of my head. Smelled like a dirty ass head and it disgusted me. I'm very sensitive to smells so I noticed it right away. Could have just been my diet as of late. My head smells a little bit dirty right now but it's not so bad.

Guess I'll look for something that cuts down the grease and smells nice. Once I stole some coconut shampoo from my mom when I had long hair. Holllly shit did it ever smell nice. Fruity is gooood.

shampoo is like coffee. very habbit forming. it also subverts your bodys own cleaning mechanisms. IMO

Ok, then try cleaning your bedding. Strip your bed sheets, your pillow sheets, wash, and dry. Aplly back to bed, and enjoys the feeling, and great smell of having a clean bed!

Well my hair used to be long, and every morning when I woke up my hair was like stuck to my head and my face was greasy..Shower everyday and cut you hair shorter, then you wont be greasy no more...also watch what you eat...foods with high suger content are known to cause acne, which comes from a greasy face, which also comes from long hair

This may sound a little crazy but since you have oily hair try washing it in DAWN that rigt dish detergent. It has grease cutters in it. I know it will cut down on it anyway.

maybe you have some sort of smelly head fungus. i read a question something like yours in a bad magazine once and i think they suggested that it was possibly a fungus. so, that's my diagnosis. ask a doctor or a dermatologist if there's something you can do about it.

I've got short hair again, just got it cut in fact. I think it may be because I haven't washed my sheets and pillow case in a while. I know it may sound disgusting but I'm usually a real big clean freak/nerd.

Sheets and pillow cases are clean though, no smelly head. I concluded that it must have been that, but then I posted this, for reasons beyond me. I swear I wasn't stoned either.. heh. :smirk:

I would still love to hear some names of good smelling/working shampoos and conditioners. Why not? Some of the stuff smells fricken good. My mom gave me this generic drug store brand shampoo for dandruff and greasy hair seeing as how no one used it, and it's the best stuff I've smelled in a long time!! I just want to grab the bottle right now and start huffing it.

I have worked in the health care field for a long time, and actually that is not soooo embarrasing. Here is my suggestion, ask your hair dresser. She/he would probably be the most knowledgable on this topic. The body is complex and any change you do nutritionally etc can manifest into some interesting functions, like your own. Good luck, and remember ... someone else has something more embarrassing that you.

Everyone is recommending curing the symptom when BrownDustin obviously knows the cause of the problem! Why not change that??

Change your diet, man! :heart:

Personally, I've used nothing but WATER on my hair for about the past 3 years or so. Though I rinse it every day with water I don't use any kind of products on it except if something gets in it I might use a little bit of bar soap, but that happens infrequently.

Last year I had a flatmate (dunno what you call em in the states, people you live in a house with when your renting as a student), who was at hairdressing school. She was tellin me theres two ways to have the technically healthiest hair. You can either (a) use a shitload of really fancy expensive shampoos, conditioners, oils etc that basically strip your hair of everything and then re-apply a shinier synthetic version, or you can (b) use absolutely no products at all, and this lets your natural oils build up to a stable level. I was happy to hear this as this is what I do.

She said that if you do somewhere in between, like shampoo it once a day or once a week with some generic shampoo, then your not in such a good situation. This is because you strip your hair of its natural protective oils, and you head produces excess to compensate, so you get dirty oily hair that can also smell kinda funky. Basically the vibe I was gettin from her was that when it comes to healthy hair its kind of an all-or-nothing approach.

Now sure my hair isn't flowing shiny silk like on commercials, its just hair. Not super shiny but not dull either. It has a smell, it smells like hair, not really good or bad, just human. Its slightly oily but not to a large extent because its at its equilibrium now so my head doesnt need to produce excess oils.

Sure some can call me a hippie, haha, some people get grossed out by it, especially if I tell them I don't use deodorant either. Why the fuck is everyone so convinced that we need all of these products, that have infact only been around for 100 years max out of the several hundred thousand years of humanity...what a crock! I'm not against it I just don't think its necessary.

everyone I know that doesnt wash their hair or use deodorant just plain stinks. You might not notice it, but I'm sure others do behind your back. But whatever makes you happy...

oh, and as far as deodorant goes, I use rock crystal deodorant, such as: http://www.crystaldeodorantprotection.com - it lasts over a year and is very natural - it simply prevents the bacteria that makes you smell bad.
