I went to get my hair relaxed on Monday after 11 weeks. A record for me. But the stylist left the perm in too long I think because I have a big scab in my scalp. I have only gotten a scab before if I scratched my head before a relaxer but this time I KNOW I wasnt scratching. I want to know 1. How are these scabs created? Is it a scalp burn that turns into a scab? 2. What are the damaging effects of this? Does it make scalp damage and prevent your hair growth? 3. How do you get rid of them. Do I oil it and it goes away or what? I don't want to pick it (yuck) but I want this think out of my head PRONTO!!!
