Smelly Hair Syndrome

Everyone has an occasional "bad hair day," but for those unfortunate people stricken with a condition known as "Smelly Hair Syndrome," a bad hair day can mean relationship problems, taunts from coworkers and even expulsion from school. Consider these examples:
"I wash my hair and by the middle of the day it has a sweaty, muggy smell ... I'm a sophomore in college, never had a boyfriend, never even kissed a guy, all because of this smelly demon that I have had to cope with since eighth grade." -- Corrin, the beauty brains forum.
"I go to work everyday because I have no choice, but my co-workers are very cruel to me because of the bad odor they smell coming from my head. They don't know how hard I try to take care of this problem." -- Sierra,  the beauty brains forum.
"An 8-year-old girl said she was removed from her classroom at a Seattle school because of the way her hair smelled. She has now missed a full week at Thurgood Marshall Elementary." - KIRO TV Report
 Smelly hair or scalp is caused by a fungus called Malassezia which appears on the skin as a result of excess levels of sebum oil production.
Malassezia in turn frequently results in Seborrheic dermatitis, also most commonly found on the scalp or the face.
A natural solution for Malassezia and Seborrheic dermatitis is the essential oil of NZ Manuka, this natural oil contains high levels of triketone compounds which have been shown in studies to control and eliminate the Malassezia fungus and prevent the onset of Seborrheic dermatitis,
Manuka oil comes in oil, cream and soap formulations combined to form a seborrheic dermatitis treatment pack
