From: dry scalp (18.104.22.168)
I had color/bkt 11 days ago and on Saturday (two days ago) I noticed my scalp was starting to flake.
I had noticed quite a bit of tingling/stinging when the bkt was applied, but the stylist assured me that this was normal and as long as it wasn't burning, it was o.k. I would say it wasn't exactly burning, but it was somewhat uncomfortable.
This stylist is different than my normal one, but he is somebody who is highly-recommended on the board and is very experienced/knowledgable in all forms of straightening.
Anyway, once I noticed the flakes, I did a deep conditioning treatment, and they seemed to subside. The treatment was formulated for hair -- not scalp-- but it seemed to wash away most of the flakes. My scalp feels a bit itchy and dry, but not red and irritated. I still see a few flakes, but not as many as I did before the treatment.
I would like to get my scalp back into good condition as soon as possible and would like to know if anybody (stylists or others) could recommend a good scalp treatment.
The formula that was used on me was the higher-formaldehyde one (AGI-Max). I am wondering if this could have caused the flaking. Another thing that comes to mind is that the color that was used on my hair (Miss Clairol) was too harsh. I researched it and it is a salon brand (I did not know that Clairol made anything other than box brands) but I'm not sure if it is a gentle one.
My hair felt very soft and bouncy when it was first washed/dried(same day), but now it feels a bit dry and stiff.
Any insight anybody could offer would be much appreciated.
