Please help ladies----

My sister recently got her hair cornrowed and they were put in too tight.  She now has little white bumps on her scalp. We took her braids out a week ago, but her scalp still feels sore-as if the braids are still in her hair.  What can we do? What are these white bumps? Will they cause more hair loss?

When you say little whit bumps do you mean like the razor bump size?

When I get my braids I think that my scalp is genreally tendor for like 2 weeks as it is getting used to being exposed to the air elements and SUN.  Especially if I for get to sunscreen it.

those white bumps are a result of the skin being pulled to tight. they will eventually go away....but i think you may need a new braider!!

Yes, like razor bump size. My sister is going to lay off the braids for a while because she has major temple loss as well.  She's a young buck (16), so she is more concerned about the way her hair looks, not its health. Thanks for the help.....

 I know its late, but I heard that your hair is supposed to be tight a few days after you braid it and dabbing witch hazel along your hairline helps prevent the bumps.                                                    

  Hope this helps anyone who's still interested!

its not SUPPOSED to be tight, but it may just end up being that way. it is supposed to be braided only taught enough for the braid to hold without having alot of hair UNDER the braid.

but witch hazel/seabreeze does help a little. even a braid spray will help.

The little white bumps are a sign that the hair was braided way too tight, I used to get these at the nape area of my hair when the braid lady cornrowed my hair too tight when I was young. 

I think you should go and have a little talk to this braider and at least make her aware of what she's doing.

Her tight hair braiding could result in one of her client's having alopecia....permanently.

I think you should make her aware of this.

  Yeah, I guess you're right with the SUPPOSED. I was thinking of getting braids some time this summer; I'm only 15 and this would be my first time, but is it correct to say then that your hair/scalp would be sore and not tight a few days after and witch hazel helps?

Actually come to think of it the white bumps may probally be more than just the usually hairbumps.

Please whatever you do, do not get it braided tight. I braid my 10yr. old daughters hair, and I never do it tight. Her hair is 3 inches from her waist.

I follow the  Crown and Glory Method It works great. You will see a difference in hair texture, health, and length. 

Happy hair braiding.

hi- cornrows and locs are always too tight for hair, even if you don't feel it. i would suggest not doing the teeny braids or cornrows, and trying larger braids (to ur sis). right now she should have them out if they are painful ESPECIALLY with bumps. this stuff can lead to early hair loss!
