Are You In Tune With Your Body’s Senses?
Let me ask it a different way. Are you in touch with your body’s senses? That is, your sense of touch, smell, sight, and hearing? Our senses not only give us pleasure, but also keep us safe. They help us to identify the difference between kind words and harsh words. Even a smile with warmth verses someone that is angry.
For this reason and others, we rely on our senses because they don’t lie. Although we sometimes choose to ignore our senses, but that’s not common sense. In fact, doing so can put us in danger. So it’s vital that you’re in touch with your senses and what they’re telling you.
Using Our Senses When Getting Our Hair Done
Let’s talk about using our senses when getting our hair done. If combing through your hair is painful, that pain is sending you a message that something’s wrong. As a result, you need to take a moment and ask yourself a critical question. ‘Why is your scalp tender”?
Did you just get a relaxer, perm or color? Is your scalp more painful in one area? Ladies, take the time to ask yourself what’s causing the pain and discomfort. You should also examine your scalp for redness, swelling, burns, or hair thinning. Pain resulting from a hair treatment is obviously a sign that something is not right.
Could it be that you’re not using the right products and tools for grooming your hair? If not, you need to stop using what’s not working and find the right products to protect and repair your scalp. When you’re in touch with your body’s senses, you’re able to tell when something is wrong. But don’t just acknowledge the feeling, do something to correct the problem!
When You’re At The Salon
The next time you’re in the salon ladies, be sure to turn your senses up. When you are getting chemical services, you know the smell is unpleasant. So much so that you hold your breath. In addition, the strong smell also irritate your eyes and make them teary.
Holding your breath and teary eyes and your body’s way of trying to protect you. Now ask yourself this. “Am I in touch with my body enough to know that I need to have a barrier on my scalp. Something that will prevent these chemicals from touching my skin?”
And what what about what you hear when you’re in the salon chair? “Can you leave that on a little while longer?” But your scalp is screaming in pain. Or, “I need to take that color a little higher”, while your eyes are tearing up.
There can also be negative effects after you leave the salon. For example, your treatment and styling are done and you go home. Even while driving home you realize how sore your scalp is and you don’t want to touch your head. Moreover, you’ll most likely get a headache because your whole head starts hurting!
Common Sense Hair Loss
Now let’s talk common sense. If not applied correctly, perms, bleach, relaxers and hair color can severely damage your scalp. Not to mention, cause hair loss. So, every time you get these treatments without protecting your scalp, you’ll just one session away from permanent damage.
