So ladies I bought hair from another BHM'r that already told me ahead that the hair had a smell to it. I thought to myself it can't be that badEmbarrassed. I bought hair so many times from CV's and none of the hair ever had a smell so I wanted to be sure what I was smelling on the hair I had was what you guys considered corn chips. So I bought the hair. Shout out to this BHM'r she shipped this hair like lightning fast.
 
I really didn't smell anything and I kept smelling and smelling, scratching and sniffing and got nothing. I said maybe its my nose. UNTIL I wet the hair then I said ooooooooooStern Smile now I see what the ladies are talking about. I never ever smelled anything like this before. Its worst than cornchips but thats the only thing you can compare it too. This hair is BEAUTIFUL. I washed it like 4 times. Then it dawned on me. Listerine kills bad breathe germs so let me pour some on the hair. Then I said hell let me soak the hair in 3 cups listernine and half a bowl of water. I really think this did the trick. I then rinsed the hair off then soaked it with suave conditioner. Its still wet but I don't smell anything anymore.
 
Things i've used so far:
Clarifying shampoo (smell still there)
ACV(smell still there)
Dove shampoo and conditioner(smell still there)
Silicon Shampoo(smell still there)
LISTERINE( Smell gone so far)
 
Let me know what you guys have used. This is my cornchip challenge and I'm up for it!!!

I put everything I had into getting the smell out, including Listerine (straight, no chaser in a ziplock bag).
 
Once I wet the hair again, it smelled like a bad nursing home Unhappy.
 
I wound up soaking my wig in a dilution of water and Downy for a couple hours.  No more stink Thumbs Up.

Corn chips really smell better than the smell in this hair(i just coudln't think of anything else). Its makes you kinda wanna vomit if you smell it for too long. I really feel bad for the girls that bought the Genesis hair when she had those batches that had the corn chip smell. I would hate to walk around with that hair smell in the summer time.  Dead 
 
If the smell comes back I might have to try the downy for a couple of hours. Thanks Ladies
 
Please fell free to add any other recommendations.
