My hair hurts!

Ouch, ouch, my hair hurts! I don't usually wear my hair in a ponytail, but decided to today. When I let it down, I couldn't believe how much it hurt. It's been hours, and it still hurts. Any tips on what to do to make it stop hurting?

ick, don't miss those days! seems our scalps go into full defiant mode when we do such'n the fly. it's gonna sound a bit odd to ya, but i do a epsom salt soak. jest get a small pan'f warm water, drop'n a towel, wring it out 'n wrap it 'round my head whilst massagin'. anythin' to get that circulation goin' once more.

Gently massage your scalp, this can happen, even if you do not do a pony tail.

I spent most of my evening massaging my scalp.

@lilnana1111 I hope that this was helpful. It can be pretty painful when the hair hurts.

My solution was to stop wearing my hair in a ponytail. I feel your pain!

I would massage it but I don't know. I can't remember my hair hurting.

Massaging it is helping a little.
