what is scab hair
The hair transition is the period in which straightening and other chemicals are left aside so that the hair regains its natural texture. In this process, scab hair can arise because the root of the hair can be damaged, which causes the appearance of dry and undefined strands. Therefore, scab hair is hair that is born damaged.
In addition to chemicals, flat irons, dryers, braids and other interventions can be aggressive agents to the hair and cause the problem. Despite causing great discomfort in some people, it is necessary to remember that the birth of damaged hair is temporary and is part of your hair transition process. In addition, it is possible to deal with this period with treatments that alleviate the problem.
How to treat scab hair
If the problem is happening to you, be very calm at this time, as some care can alleviate it. Below are some tips you can follow to have a smoother hair transition.
- Hair massage with vegetable oils: coconut oil, olive oil and other vegetable oils can treat the hair from the follicle, preventing the growth of new hair with the problem.
