Re: scalp burn from dye
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!
