Why does my scalp hurt?

After straightening my hair when my hair goes the wrong way i get tender spots on my scalp that feel like bruises. Why does this happen?

  • your hair folicle is used to laying a certain way. When it's texture is changed, it can bruise the follicle. Similar to your muscles...when you aren't used to using them in a certain way, they get tender until you get used to it.
