So I have been getting comments that my hear smells bad, I don't know what the problem is and I would appriciate help.
Iwash my hair once a week.
Stupid as I am, I have been washing with baking powder and not baking soda.
Do you think this is the case or might it be anything else that makes my hair smell?

possible but lets diagnose

does it really stink or are they just negative ppl saying that (common)

does it stink when wet

if its mildww or mold u would smell it yourself especialy when wet

if its just not smelling good ..just like hair not all pretty like shampoos then the dreadlockshampoo soaps will make it smell awesome

oh if u use teareee some ppl think that smells bad

if its mold rot knot will fix it up

Hi Karl, baking soda and baking powder are two different things. Baking soda is pure sodium bicarbonate. whereas baking powder contains other stuff like starch etc. If u gonna do bs/acv washes make sure u only use baking soda and not baking powder. Hope u get your ratios right? When u dont wash your hair it does tend to smell because of your natural oils. So how about washing it twice a week maybe..? As a matter of fact in early stages if u wash more often your hair will knot up faster.. I used to wash it every other day in my first few months. Good luck man

Human hair aint supposed to smell like anything in particular- just hair. People in our society put all kinds of shit on their heads to smell like flowers and fruits and bubble gummie candle drip la la juice and such. Baking soda and a soft acv rince will leave your hair smelling clean and feeling clean and actually truly being clean. Nothing has ever seemed better for my hair. Many whotend to tell dreaded folks that their hair stinks are just under the assumtion that dreads are dirty and smelly because we live in society that believes idiotic stereotypes. Just make surethey are clean and not moldy and it dont matter what folks say.
