Abrasion

Definition  
A sore on the scalp or the skin that is caused by scraping, scratching or wearing away. Professionals caution against applying chemical treatments or other harsh hair care products to a scalp or skin near the hairline which has an open scratch, sore or related abrasion. An abrasion may cause partial or complete absence of hair from areas. Sometimes tiny abrasions can occur from over vigorous scalp massage where the fingernails are used.

Daily Hair Tip
Choose a hairstyle that specifically suits your face shape, hair type, texture and lifestyle. Never choose a hairstyle for a popular celebrity or for the hair trend of the moment. Celebrity and fashion hair styles change rapidly leaving you with yesterday's style.
