Do you filter or otherwise treat the water in any way before washing? And how's the indoor air? The musty smell in your hair may come from poor-quality water or air. Just something to consider.

It's very dry here in New England during the winter and I've found that my hair dries much faster and doesn't smell as much. If you hair does not dry quickly, perhaps you can try to speed the process along with a hairdryer on a cool air setting?

If your hair smells really terrible (ie stinks), it's possible you have a bacterial infection. This can happen to any of us, so don't feel bad. Sometimes, when our cells and follicles adjust to no 'poo, an imbalance can occur, allowing bacteria to enter the hair shaft. You may have to go back to shampoo for a while (SLS free) or use shampoo bars to cleanse the hair carefully but properly. You can then go back to no 'poo, making sure to add a last rinse with cold water to close the hair shaft.
