How to treat scalp after being burned by relaxer?
Used organic olive oil straightener on hair and scalp began to burn. Extremely painful. Any ideas on how to treat it?
Some people have allergies to olive oil. If you started experiencing a burning sensation on your scalp, your best bet is to stop using it. After you've stopped using the olive oil straightener, make sure to avoid using very hot or very cold water on your scalp, which can further irritate it. Then, use Margo Alive Shampoo, which includes a drug called capsaicin that will take away the burning sensation.

I have tried: Hair mayo, vitamin E, Moisturizing shampoo, conditioners, Keranique, hair vitamins, root boosters, Dr. miracle, etc....

I forgot about the S-curl because it was something I had only tried once. my hair had grown back to shoulder length when I applied a perm, and shortly after my hair loss began and I have been unable to fix it since
