My daughter is 6 yrs old and I noticed about 2 weeks ago that her hair has a strange smell to it. The smell was a metallic like smell. It seems to be worse when it is wet that when it is dry. I even tried different shampoos and it still smells. Her doctor is even stumped. At first my husband and I thought maybe it was our hard water but if that is the case then why is it only her hair?? Please help I am going nuts trying to figure this out. :eek:

  • Hi, I have been experiencing the same thing myself in the past week. I though it could have been the products I have been using, but could not find any references to those. I'll keep searching and if I find something will let you know.
