I've had a couple of people contact me after burning their scalp because their water was too hot or because their skin made contact with undiluted essential oils e.g. peppermint oil.
Types of burn:
If you have first degree burns, these are some quick solutions:
If you have second degree burn or worse, see a doctor. If your scalp is still sore after 3 or 4 days also see a doctor. Normally, after the initial shock your scalp should cool down and start healing quite rapidly after about 24-48 hours.
What not to do!
If your hair has been yanked out due to burns, don't freak out, in many cases it will grow back.
