What are they caused by and how can they be prevented? I've noticed that i receive a lot of breakage where i usually get chemical burns.

Well, sodium hydroxide is one of the most caustic chemicals known to man (calcium hydroxide isn't far behind).  TRY not to get it on your scalp, try being the opporative word.  Did you manipulate your scalp before the relaxer?

you need to leave your scalp alone for about a week, so it has a natural barrier on to it ie no washing at all, try not to scratch, leave your hair in a style where you are not pulling the hair at the route ie no tight ponies.

basically do nothing to irritate the scalp in the run up to a relaxer.

IA with the ladies.  I used to get a lot of burns.
 
  1. Don't wash your hair the day before a relaxer.
  2. Don't get the relaxer on your scalp.  (Use a base on your scalp if you have to.)
  3. Don't manipulate the scalp.

Make sure she puts a lot of something on you scalp.  I think they use like vaseline or something to base (it's been a loooooong time for me).  Whatever they use, make sure she covers every inch of your scalp with it.  You should check before she puts it in.

ITA with the other responses, don't manipulate your scalp before a relaxer (washing, scratching, combing or brushing too vigorously).  Hopefully your stylist doesn't know you wash your hair prior, otherwise she she shouldn't put the relaxer on your hair. 

I got a tip from Healthy Textures and I use Hollywood Beauty Castor Oil in the jar on my scalp.  My stylist bases before a relaxer, but I do it the night before anyway.
