Perm Sores : (
To prevent these...
Base your scalp very well before putting a perm in your head.
Do not scratch your head with your fingernails, combs, etc. before getting your hair permed.
Do not wash your hair at least 48 hours before you get a perm.
Doing any of these things will ensure that your scalp will be instantly irritated as soon as that chemical hits your hair! You can get perm sores from this.
Perm sores normally heal on their own after a few days. Make sure you have WASHED all of the perm out and you have used neutralizing shampoo to remove any perm residue from your hair. This will prevent further irritation.
Aloe Vera gel. vitamin E, or Neosporin with pain reliever will assist in making these sores heal. If you have more redness and scalp irritation that persists after a few days, make an appointment to see a dermatologist right away. You may have done some permanent damage to your scalp.
