Hi i bleached my hair on friday twice stupid i know then i used a color garnier nutrise the same day i was a lil itchy but every thing was fine then i woke up yesterday my hair was orange so i used clairol nice and easy it was burning my scalp so after ten mins i washed it off i then used tressemme deep conditioner straight after and left it for half an hour i showerd and afterwards i looked in the mirron coz the front of mu scalp was irritating and noticed tiny dark flat red scabs and theres more throughout my scalp my head is irritating tingling and burning the tingles start suddenly and my neck ears and forehead itch too.. Iv also had a headache since the bleaching and am overly tired bit i have been staring at my laptop screen lookin for answers since yd afternoon. Also does any one know ifni will go bald? And can i wash my hair with baby shampoo and use conditioner or will this irritate it more... Thanks
Hi...it'll irritate it even more because baby shampoo is higher on the alkaline scale.
Don't shampoo it for a few days...only rinse it with luke-warm water.
I would suggest you use an antibiotic cream such as polysporin to prevent infection.
If you're not allergic to aspirin, take it for pain and inflammation relief (orally, not put on your skin). If you cannot take aspirin, the advil will help as well. if you cannot take either then tylenol will help with the pain.
Of course, best to see the doctor who might be able to prescribe a product that can be compounded.
Aloe vera gel could also be used on the scalp to help heal and lessen the inflammation.
This will take a while to go a away...scabbing will be part of the process. Don't pick.
Remember, just rinse for a few days.
Hope you get better soon.
It's all a matter of perspective!
