I just wanted to ask about something strange that ive seen with my hair.
After I had my TR, and my stylist burnt the hair off at the scalp around my fringe, I noticed the regrowth seemed very wiry and spindly, almost pubic (sorry, its the only thing it resembles) This part of my hair is really wiry now, and I wondered if its possible that the follicles were damaged? Can this cause permanent damage? It was a bad TR, shes pretty incompetent with it to be honest, she ruined my sister too!
Is there any hope here? Is there anything I can do to fix it? Maybe its environmental, or stress, rather than the follicles damaged?
I think you may be dealing with something often called "scab hair." It's the new growth after the scalp has been burned with chemical relaxers. It tends to be different from natural hair. I think the hair will go back to normal after it grows out a bit more.
wow, thats something Ive never heard of! Well, its certainly good to know, I'll keep an eye on it and look out for more healthy growth. I just had a good look and it does actually look as though the 3 inches at the ends there are worse than the rest, more wiry and wiggly, so I think this must be it.
Thanks for the info, I'm glad to hear there is hope for recovery. My poor hair needs some good news
