Hair smells immediately after going outside



For the past 1.5 years my hair smells AWFUL immediately after I go outside.  I can walk to the mailbox, come back, and my family gags at the smell.  I have talked to my hair stylist, doctor, and dermatologist - they had never heard of this and saw no visible issues with my hair or scalp. 


I have tried medicated shampoos and conditioners, deep cleaners, all new product, all new appliances, but I'm still having the problem.


Any suggestions?! I'm desperate here.

Hi @DolphinLover13 

Have you resolved this issue? If not, find a salon that uses Malibu C products, I would highly suggest a crystal gel treatment (you will probably need more then one). This is an in-salon treatment that removes any/all build up that shampoo cannot (medication, chlorine, iron, copper, salt, any/all hard water and so on).
