I'm assuming you're using a metal iron? That's why it's smells like that? I say change your iron- try a ceramic one.

I bathe at least once every day but only wash my hair every 2 or it gets too darn dry. I use Pantene and my own handmade Shampoo bars and don't seem to have too much problem.

Hey Blueeyes!

I have fine, thin hair. I have to wash it everyday too. Sometimes If I do two shampoos and I have some great product in my hair and my sheets are clean (sheets can add to the "oil" if they haven't been changed in a while) I can get away without shampooing the second day---but its usually a "stay in" day.

Once, at camp, I didn't shampoo my hair for four days. My DH handed me the shampoo bottle, faced me toward the late and said, "go". My hair gets like string. It's gross!

I do wash everyday.

That is me on a personal level.

On a professional level (I'm a hairstylist), some people naturally produce more oils and their hair can be washed everyday (and likely should be). Not everyone is like that. No shampoo is going to help with that. The best you can do is use what works for you. If you have fine hair like me, I'd stay away from Pantene because it has a wax build-up and will eventually weigh down your hair. IF you like Pantene and don't want to stop using it, I'd use a good "Carifying Shampoo" (get a professional one, if possible) and shampoo with that every two weeks just to keep the wax from building up (good practice for any hairtype, actually).

As for using conditioner, try not to use it on the roots, just the ends of your hair (if you need it at all). It will add to your hair being more limp.

Hope you don't mind me putting in my two cents.
