I went through this a few months ago. Several hours after I washed my hair, my scalp would develop a funky smell. Have no idea what caused it, except maybe hormones(?). Who knows?

Every hair on my head has a mind of its own, and that makes it fun.

I did the puberty straight-to-curly thing. That seems to be fairly common.

I'm 49 and probably 40% gray (which I color). It's same texture as it was before turning gray. Time will tell!
