What will happen if you don't use neutralizing shampoo to rinse a hair relaxer?

It is best to use neutralizing shampoo to prevent hair from being dry and penetration. Thus, your hair might suffer from being dull and thick. Also, it can get damage in the long run if you haven't followed the procedure to rinse your hair with a neutralizing shampoo to remove the oil and chemicals.

The neutralizing shampoo will in fact act along with your hair relaxer but it will not in any way remove the relaxer from your hair but it will cause the protein from the combination to aid your hair.

Neutralizer shampoo burns after getting a relaxer?

Yes, this is possible and the most common reason for the burning is because of scratching, brushing or combing of your scalp while relaxing your hair or before. This will cause your scalp to burn when applying the neutralizer shampoo to your hair.

What if the hair relaxer solution left on for more than one hour?

Will hair damage occur if the solution is left on for too long?

Leaving hair relaxer for too long may permanently damage hair. This may cause a tingling and then burning sensation, which is a sign that a severe pain or injury is imminent. This eventually leads to sores on the scalp, hair breakage, and may even kill off the hair follicles forever. Also, it may change the hair type to dry. Always follow the instructions on the home-made kits or, better yet, go to a beauty salon if you really wish to use hair relax solutions.

What is the best way to comb through hair that is slightly Embedded. My highlights were processed for 5 weeks?

My stylist did not neutralize my highlights and the tin foil packets seeped on to my scalp. My hair was completely unmanageable so I used coconut oil on it and put it in a pony tail. I had itching, tingling, and burning and then I discovered the folded pieces of hair that were basically melted on to my scalp. It was on my head for 5 weeks. I realized what was happening when there was white substance running in my eyes and ears at night. I have shampooed a dozen times with over the counter shampoo but finally got a professional neutralizer because it wasn't coming off me quickly or easily. Hair was slightly embedded. I am having a reaction systemically and will be seeing a doctor today. My eyelashes and eyebrows (several were bright white) have fallen out. My neck and under my ears is burned and there are spots on my scalp All of the highlighted hairs are 5 times the size they used to be and they are brights white. My stylist used Clairol bw creme. My hair was damp when he applied the solution (he always demands that it is straight and dry) and he only washed once and used a leave in conditioner instead of the normal conditioner. My hair used to be about 16 inches long. Every highlighted hair is toast and is falling out. I cut my hair 3 times (twice myself and once by my stylist) during this ordeal because it was driving me nuts. Now I know why. those big white hairs are intertwined with the other hair wherever a foil packet was which is why I could not manage it, it was tangled at the root! Why did my highlight chemical leak out of the packet? I have tried: Tea Tree Mint PH balancing shampoo, and a neutralizing shampoo and conditioner. I think it was caused by: Chemical being put on damp hair, only 1 shampoo, and perhaps the leave in conditioner.
