Scalp problems after straightening

Why do scalps with relaxed hair often have problems? Several factors can cause an imbalance in their pH. In temperate climates, the epidermis is adapted by nature to humid tropical climates and becomes too dry to the point of dehydration. Then there are the problems caused by the various treatments you apply to your hair in good faith...

Be careful about the products you apply to your scalp

Relaxing products

If they are not controlled with the utmost vigilance, straightening products can reach the skin of the scalp, either directly or by capillary action, which can lead to provoke reactive dermatitis. This can manifest itself as simple redness and itching. More rarely, these products can even generate real burns with formation of scales then scabs, which must be prevented from becoming infected.

Products applied after straightening

They are often poorly adapted: the shea for example, so beneficial to the lengths and ends of the hair is too greasy for the skin. It prevents the skin from breathing and evacuating what little natural sebum there is, and can cause dandruff, irritation and severe itching. Not to mention the use of superfatting balms (very popular in the USA) containing lanolin or vaseline and sometimes even silicones!

Shampoos and their frequency

They don't solve the problems, and often make them worse. If they are too frequent, the limescale in the water only makes the problem worse.irritate the horny layer of the skinThe brief sensation of cleanliness is quickly replaced by discomfort and the return of irritations. If they're not frequent enough, skin problems can get worse. Our advice: shampoo no more than once a fortnight, with natural, detergent-free (no-poo) products that leave the head clean and are gentle on the skin and hair.
