    Bad hair smell

    Hi, I am writing this for my boyfriend. There is a smell that we seem to think is coming from his hair on head, or his scalp. I know this may sound gross but it kind of smells like urine. Last night I washed it two times for him and it seemed to be better. But then he put hair grease in his hair and about an hour later I started to smell it again. We smelled his water in the water in his bathroom and it kinda smells like it could be in the water, he has city water. He is going to try to use another type of hair gease or try not using any to see if maybe the grease and shampoo mixed together is the cause. I think that if it was the water then his skin would smell but it doesn't, any suggestions? Thanks!

    i've heard people say that smelly scalp can be caused by fungus or bacteria. Have him see a dermatologist. In the meantime, wash his hair with dial antibacterial body wash and see if it helps.

    I've had this.

    Tell him to get a bottle of Selsun Blue shampoo - the sulfur in it takes care of the problem.
