Hair straightening chemicals that are used in some salons are very not good on our scalp...didn't you notice that before they put the chemical fist, they have to spray a water on your hair...that's because this chemicals can burn the scalp...not only burn our scalp but it is also hot when it heats our skin..
What you should do is to consult a Doctor...To treat the burns.
Only use cold water. Find a very thick hair conditioner and leave it one after you wash you hair mildly for at least 15 min. Wella puts out a very good one if you have a beauty supply store near you. If they don't clear up in a week, see a doctor.
That was not bleach they used on you. It was a chemical striaghtener.
They may blister up and then scab over. Do NOT brush hard. Brush away from the scalp and do not pick scabs.
I got a chemical burn from a highlight done at a salon here Cary, NC. I have had so many issues and it has been close to seven months. I now have burning scalp syndrome and telegon efflvium (loss Of hair). I am so upset as my life has turned upside down and the medical bills are crazy. One piece of advice I had to chop my hair off in order to get the chemicals out of my hair follicles!!!
I went to a hair salon in september to get highlights for the first time and as i was waiting under the thing that blows hot air it burned a part of my scalp. I still have the scab and its pretty thick but it wont seem to heal at all. Sometimes puss comes out or a little bit of blood. It doesn't hurt but i think if i pull the scab my hair will come off with it too. I need some type of remedy to put on my scab because i dont want my hair to fall off and i want my scab to heal. I would really appreciate if i can get some help please. Thank you soo much!
Did you go to a doctor? My wife has something similar in April 2010. They put some chemical in foil and put her under the dryer. Whatever it was liquefied and caused deep 2nd degree burns. She lost her hair in a half dollar size area on her scalp and had a scab for months. The hair loss is permanent. We've been waiting for the irregular scar tissue to diminish enough for a hair transplant. Two years later (just last month), the scab reformed. Biopsies were taken and carcinoma was discovered.
Frankly, we're litigating, but the medical issues and personal toll have been horrific.
