Please help me figure out why my scalp is sore.. Ps i have tre type of hair that i know about. 3b and 3c in the back of my head and 4a is the majority i think
It happens to me when I spend a lot of time without washing my hair, and with a lot I mean 6 days. At day 6 it is already hurting. It doesnt happen when it is curly though, just when it is straight. Also, if I have the same hairdo for a long time, like 3 days in a row. Even if I redo it everyday. The thing that do the trick for me is washing my hair. I've tried applying olive oil to the scalp but it didn't help. I wash my hair and the pain is gone.
