I just dyed my hair (only one shade from my natural hair color). I've gone to hair salons a lot, and obviously hair chemicals can leave unpleasant smells in hair for a while.

The new salon I went to was different - it wasn't the usual chemical smell, but it left a really rotten smell in my hair. It literally smells like something's rotting. I've tried washing it, leaving shampoo in longer, etc, but it smells disgusting. Immediately after I left the salon, I noticed flakes in my hair- I've never had dandruff so I thought it was weird, and I just had this gross feeling in my hair, as if I didn't wash my hair for more than a week, and even after I showered multiple times, there's just this slightly greasy feeling to it.

To top if off (yes there's more), my scalp itches like crazy everywhere. It started at my scalp, then my neck, back areas, then moving down to my entire body. I've showered several times, and I just don't feel clean. I itch. I smell. It's disgusting. I've never had this happen before - I shower every day, and feeling gross like this is driving me crazy.

It was my first time at the salon there, and the person who did my hair left a really bad taste in my mouth. Apparently she's the youngest and most hip, so everyone prefers her; it's also in a nice part of town. But.. all she talked about was getting drunk and hooking up with people. Fine, whatever, I don't care what people do in their personal life, but it just got to the point where I just did not want to talk to her anymore. I was also annoyed because she was trying WAY too hard to imitate Snooki from the Jersey Shore, and I just reached a point where she was giving me TMI and I didn't care to hear about the guy she hooked up with, and how her BF was mad. I just wanted to read a magazine and get my hair treated.

I just needed to vent and get some advice on this. Has anyone ever had a really disgusting rotten smell after getting hair coloring? or itchiness?

I'd head to your doctor -- I thihk you are having an allergic reaction to the color.
