Is it possible for your hair oils to mkae your scalp stink?

I have been having this problem since I started the CG method. I have a clarifying shampoo and I don't sleep with wet hair.
Is there any way to get rid of the smell, is there a cause?
It's not build-up.. and I never had this problem while using shampoos that contained sulfates.

    I hope others will chime in, but I am wondering if this is your scalp learning to adjust. When it's being stripped of its oils by sulfates, it has to create a lot of oil to replenish that. It is probably still producing a lot of oil, more than it needs now. How long have you been doing the CG method?
