Since I was a little girl I could not stand the smell of unwashed hair. I have to admit I have a very sensitive nose and can smell things most don't even notice. But for me, it's unwashed hair. I am not talking the kind of person who skips a day of washing to preserve the delicate hair follicles. I am talking the ones who walk by and a waft of indescribable stench permeates the air. It's indescribable but so very unpleasant. I used to sit next to a girl in my class in elementary school who seemed to not wash her hair for weeks. Maybe this is where I got the sensitivity to it but dear me, I cannot deal with it. Today a group of college students walked by me and someone had the stinky unwashed hair smell. Just about ruined my day.
