I am 41 and a year ago my scalp was severly burned by a hair dye that this supposed "upscale salon" used on my scalp

by Michelle
(Indiana)

My scalp being burned has cause a rash to start breaking out all over the top of my body. On my face, chest, back and arms. I went to several dermatologist that just seems to be treating the rash. When I continually mention that my scalp is what is really hurting and itching and that if we try and clear that up, I feel the rest of my body maybe won't continue to break out.
They have me on prednisone now which is helping with the inflamation but, is it possible to heal your scalp with your products after a year? It blistered at first and was inflamed for a long time. I tried everything from scalpsin (?spelling), to all kinds of products the dermatologist gave me now it's a year later I have lost 1/2 of my hair where the burn took place and I am just at a loss of what to do. My hair loss has stopped since I have been on prednisone but, I am getting ready to wean down from that.
Any suggestions you would have I would be so appreciative. This is controlling my life.
Thank you so much, Michelle

My Scalp Got Burned

recently, I just got my hair relaxed, and I think the treatment used is too strong and my small part of my scalp got burned, what to do? in that burned area, my hair can easily be plucked.


Answer:

I would recommend a tea tree shampoo. It is anti-inflammatory which will help your scalp heal much quicker.

Scalp burned

by Shirley
(New Orleans)

I'm a 55 year old black woman whose scalp was severely burned from hair color about 5 months ago. Now my entire scalp and the back of my neck looks like virtiligo.

I still have some itching and a little lumpy ridge on one side of my scalp.

I have been putting a liquid vitamin E on my scalp hoping it will help bring the natrual color back as well as stop the itching and the lumpy ridge.

What can I use to get the natural pigmentation of my scalp back?

Answer:

Shirley,

I would suggest using our FlakeFree Therapeutic Hair Gel to relieve the itching and help heal your scalp.

It's formulated with zinc and tea tree oil which are anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal just to name a few of the beneficial qualities along with numerous other herbal ingredients.

Hair color burned my scalp

by Kalli
(South Dakota)

I have colored my hair black a couple times a year for the past 12 years.

The last two time, I ended up with oozing sores and severe itching all through my hair and on my neck and ears. And the glands on the back of my head are swollen.

I have read online about this. And it seems to be happening quite alot. But so far no advice on what to use to heal these oozing sores. I have had mine for 4 months.

But, I have no insurance to go to a doctor or a dermatologist. So please any help would be wonderful. Taking tylenol and ibuprofen for the pain and inflamation can only go on so long.

The hair color that was used on my hair was SoColor Black.

Answer

Kalli,

What you have is called contact dermatitis. The oozing sores and inflammation are typical for your condition.

I recommend our zinc and tea tree lotion for dermatitis on the skin, and we developed our zinc and tea tree hair gel for scalp therapy since you wouldn't want lotion in your hair :)

Now, the zinc and tea tree are FDA approved for dermatitis and are anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-septic, and anti-fungal.

It will clear your scalp up in a couple of days.

Just use it after showering working into your scalp with your finger tips. Style as usual with any other styling gel.

If you don't want the hold, just run a comb or brush through your hair after it sets.
