If you grow your own herbs, and happen to grow peppermint (if not buy some fresh)...boil some water, crush the leaves and make a tea, let it step for about ten minutes. I use a french coffee press for this. Remove the peppermint leaves. Let the elixir cool. Then poor the peppermint oil onto your scalp and massage in. Peppermint is a natural and quite remarkable healer. It is also great for sunburns!

I am experiencing exactly the same thing - from not being taken seriously when I said it burned... and now with the scabs. When do the scabs go away??

Give it 2 weeks. The scabs start flaking off and look like dandruff on steroids so watch out - not pretty. I personally wouldn't try peppermint - that is what they put on me after and it burned like hell. Vitamin E was my elixir - applying straight to the scalp with my fingertips. Sure, you have greasy looking hair, but much more soothing.

I have had this happen to me before in the past when I tinted my hair but Today was the worst ever. My hair color was a deep red all over w/ some copper highlights in the front well I decided to go blonde cause well a lot of people were convincing me that it would look better and all.. which I have had blonde hair before but i figured why not lets go for it. Well they started with decolorization bleach stuff and applied it wow right when they applied the product to my hair i think as well to my scalp..NO NO it had started to really burn and they had only done a few strands. They didnt understand but the instructor told me to go get rinsed out so they rinsed me out. Now i have spots in my hair and a bright orange scalp.. owww. They repeated the process four .. yes four times and it was painful.. i was singing to my self to try to cover up the pain .. didn't really work. After the decolor it hadn't come up still so they put powder bleach on it and pain once more.. yes the cool water and conditioner was nice but I was in horrible pain. At this time I have been doing this for about six hours. Finally they put a toner in and applied volume to blend the hair color cause it was uneven and ugly. After there last step for the day i got to see what my hair turned out to look like.. ok .. grey/white blonde on the roots, strawberry blonde on the sides of my head.. hair. and in the back where my hair is shorter is orange. My head is pounding and bleeding and just in pure pain and my hair is now brittle and dry and I was wondering if my hair is going to fall out because of the damage done to my hair and scalp or if it is ok to try to fix my color tomorrow while at school? I dont want my hair to fall out but i really want my hair to be one even nice color u know. What should i do cause I am scared and in pain. Thanks .. susan

Sounds like your hairdressers were masochists - criminal, really. I'd go somewhere else and get treatment. Also check out an herbal store for remedies or even go to a doctor. You may need to get a cut to even things out and a nice gentle color that is low in ammonia.

hi my name is brooke and i'm 16. i just want you to know that i am so glad that i read your hair injury story, just to know that i'm not the only one that this has happened to. two days ago i dyed my hair blonde and now my hair is how you described yours, covered in scabbing and in pain and i went throught the same ordeal as you. i thought i was just being wimpy when i asked them to please rinse this stuff out because it hurt so horribly, so i stuck it out gritted my teeth as i felt the burning and pain tingle throughout my whole body. and at first i most certainly blamed them for what happened to me. so i called them and they made up excuses and actually blamed it on the small amount of sunburn that i came in to the salon with before i got my hair dyed. although now thanks to your story, i do see and completely agree with your view of the whole situation, you cant blame anyone else but you self for wanting to change the original beauty of your original self. so now i'm just going to pray for the pain and scabbing of my entire head to go away. and that hopefully i can find something to help in the process of healing.

You was embarrassed. The last time Your scalp was burning from the hair dye, the hair dresser in Wyoming dismissed it and said, that's how it is supposed to feel, and You felt like an idiot.

Oh, I also pride myself in not giving a damn what other people think, but I think that, too, is a sad delusion.

Reminds me of when I was young, a friend decided that she didn't want her bangs anymore. So she carefully trimmed them off at the hairline.

i've never had my hair styled, ever since in my life...well, i still feel satisfied, and happy...thankful for what God has given me.

hey, i'm not saying those who have their hair styled are not satisfied, ok?

just my own point for self.
