Scalp damage: HELPby ZhaDuVallePosted 4 months, 2 weeks ago
I've been platinum for the last 4 years. Originally using a Clairol product and them a Loreal product. It was soft and surpisingly healthy, with regular trimming. Then someone advised that box dyes were bad for your and that I go to duel process, bleach and tone. My scalp felt really painfully dry. I coconut oiled, but it still was crisp. The n I had to touch up my roots and boom, breakage and foliculitus, which I now cannot seem to get rid of. So, I don't want to bleach again, clearly, but my hair is growing out and hate the demarcation thing. Should I go off scalp and highlight/lowlights? If I do, should I start worth the highs or lows? In pain. Going to dr.

Definitely address the scalp issue first before you deal with your roots. You might be able to get some medication to help with the pain, but your scalp will probably take a while to heal. You might want to switch to the gentlest shampoo you can find (fragrance-free baby shampoo might be a good idea) and generally limit washing and rinse with cool water. Once your scalp feels better, you may be able to smooth out the transition with a root smudge or off-scalp high/low-lights to blend it. I'm not sure what your natural colour is, but you may be able to put yourself in a position to grow it out as a balayage.
I'm sure you've realized this by now, but I think box dyes are fine if they work for you and you like the results. A lot of colourists receive training from brands that talk about how box dye is lower quality, but it's really much more nuanced than that. Ingredient-wise box dyes are not that dissimilar to salon-only products. Application, processing time, frequency of touch-up and use of conditioning treatments have way more affect on the long-term health of your hair. Use what works for you.

I am a big fan of natural remedies that help you get rid of your problems from the root. I followed 100 percent natural remedies to treat my scalp damage. The remedies are enriched with therapeutical herbs and spices and guarantee you the result. So I always stay away from all these chemical kinds of stuff. There are plenty of sites that talk about natural remedies for scalp damage, but I followed iahas.com for my issues.
