Have you ever notice when you are getting a bleach job or a relaxer and the stylist puts on a pair of latex gloves to protect her hands from burning but nothing to protect your scalp?
Some hair stylist’s don’t base the scalp before chemical services. Why? Well I can safely say that this must stop. The reason for basing the scalp serve the same purpose as latex gloves for the stylist’s hands.
Bleach is never done properly, now tell me have you ever had your hair bleached or colored and the hairstylist based your scalp? You noticed she placed her gloves on her hands. No protection for your scalp or facial skin. Let me tell you a few things about bleach, if you get bleach on your scalp or on your skin it is going to cause a chemical burn.
Severe chemical burns can induce skin disorders such as. Scarring Alopecia and have been known to be linked to migraines or in such cases chemicals have been known to be absorbed into the pores and bloodstream affecting the liver.
Chemical burns are caused by pH’s that burn the skin. These chemicals are supposed to be neutralized after they have been processing on the scalp. This too late in the processing phase, the best protection against this is to create a barrier between the skin and the chemical itself.
Have you ever have an irritated tight and flaky scalp after a color job or straightening treatment? This condition is called Contact Dermatitis or Seborrheic Dermatitis.
After chemical processing, the scalp is in a state of shock. For a couple of days it will be tender, sore, and itchy. The scalp skin is shiny and tough.
Hair straightening without scalp protection is dangerous. This comes out to 5 to 6 times a year for over a 5 to 10 years period. Now ask yourself, is there any reason for hair thinning? And for those who bleach and permanently color, your scalp is exposed to 8 to 10 bleach jobs or 10 to 12 color jobs a year, which comes to doing this consistently for 2 to 5 years and no wonder you have hair loss or thinning hair.
Now ladies, we have to be smart about protecting our scalp. When your hair stylist covers their hands you make sure she covers your scalp.
