Ladies, how do you manage to keep your hair from smelling after cooking?

I got married 8 months ago, and I still have VERY limited abilities to cook. I know what ya'll think, poor hubby lol. One of my pet peeves is that after I'm done in the kitchen, my hair smells very bad, and also my clothes. I can't wash my hair every day, and I definitely can't cook naked lol. So ladies, please help me out here, what are some tricks for not getting a smelly hair? UGH...it makes me want to puke I swear...lol

I thought you were kidding somehow, lol, sorry, but in all my years cooking I've never experienced that one!  What on earth are you cooking my dear?

Yes, I am serious!

LARD????? Are you serious? You're not only clogging your kitchen pipes, but also your arteries! I do agree that food tastes better when cooked with lard, but I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole.

I always cook/bake with my kitchen window wide open, regardless of the temperature outside, that probably helps to eliminate a lot of the odor.

Jacqui lol I'm not kidding. I can honestly tell you that cooking has got to be one of the worst experiences of my entire life. I hate it, just because I always end up smelling horrible. I need to do something about it.

wannabenana, so no lard? how do you fry your stake and your chicken? Even in the oven, the smell of the chicken or whatever it is gets to my hair. It's not just the lard, it's the actual smell of the food. I buy my meat at Publix? Should I get it some place else? lol

I do a lot of B-B-Qing or baking in the oven.

If you want to do yourself and hubby a big favor (and hopefully live longer) STOP cooking with lard!

I'm not familiar with Publix.

Go visit the Healthy Cooking Forum and get some ideas.

Darn...that's right, one of the few supermarkets we'd have in common would be Walmart.

I do like BBQ and grilled meat or chicken, but I honestly don't have the time for it. I work 12 hours, so I barely even have time to clean my house. The fastest way of cooking I have found is frying my stake most of the time. Mind you, I do not eat much, especially what I cook. I'm a lousy, clumsy cook. Since I got married I've lost a bit of weight due to the fact that I will not eat my own food.  I do try to eat healthy as much as I can; but life sometimes is a rush. Even healthy cooking gives my hair a bad, very bad smell. YUK...

Thanks for your suggestions. I'm all for healthy living, I mean I used to be, before landing a 12 hr job!! lol

I almost never fry anything anymore. It's too messy and bad for you. Try broiling your steak in the oven. In the Summer I barbecue steak and chicken, etc. Otherwise, I cook chicken in the oven, usually.
If you're pressed for time, try using your crockpot more. You can throw stuff in in the morning and it will be ready to eat when you get home from work. There's lots and lots of things you can cook in your crockpot! Buy a crockpot cookbook and you'll see what I mean!
