Do you think it smells like milk or wet dogs? Some people have a oil that comes from scalp that makes people smell like wet dogs. Showering can make your glands make more of the oil. It can help if you make sure to dry hair as well because the smell could also be caused by mildew or bacteria

I think it’s sweat from your head dripping down and drying mixed with shampoo/conditioner residue,I discovered the smell and it annoyed me and the main cause for me is my pierced ears,if the actual tiny holes aren’t cleaned out(just use a baby wipe and put an earring in,wipe it,take it out and repeat till smell is gone x
