Scab Hair?! Transitioning To Natural

There will come a time, in your transitioning to your natural hair, where you will have to cut off your relaxed ends. For some this is no problem because they are aggravated with dealing with two different textures and for others they are hesitant because they want to keep the length.

Once you do the “big chop” you may notice that the hair remaining if very unruly and dry. No matter what you try to do to it, it just does what it wants to do. Talk about aggravating!

This phase has been titled the scab hair phase in the natural hair community. How did someone come up with this name for it? I honestly don’t know but from my own personal understanding, I feel like it is being compared to a transition or healing of some sort. Why do I say transition? Because you transition through the scab hair phase and eventually reach your “true” natural hair texture.

The hair could be reacting in that way due to long term processing of the hair with a relaxer and chemical damages that could have been made to the scalp/follicles by long term relaxer usage. Although you are not suppose to apply relaxer to the scalp area, it does find its’ way there, especially through the “smoothing” process to make sure the new growth is completely covered.

I say healing because like a scab, it goes through a process before your skin is renewed and the scab falls off.

Does scab hair just fall off?
