My scalp hurts Watch

So for a few months I think, my scalp has been hurting.
I don't tie my hair up tightly, I leave it loose.
I wash my hair twice a week and leave it to air dry.
But sometimes my scalp really hurts, for example if I am moving my hair to the side, the roots hurt really badly.
I even massaged my scalp for like 20-30 minutes and it was still painful the next day.
I once washed my hair with cold water and it felt like knives against my scalp because they were that painful.
Even 2 months ago I did a hot treatment thing and the hot cap against my scalp was really painful. I don't know what is causing it, but it really hurts at times to comb my hair. I don't know if anyone else has experienced this, but sometimes when I touch my scalp it is very warm.

Have you tried changing your shampoo / conditioner etc?

What happens if you don't use them for a week and just use water?

Use to happen to me a lot, nothing to worry about, it goes away in a couple of days. Hopefully that's helpful.

I normally have greasy hair and I once tried that it was gross. I do change my shampoo and conditioner frequently, but I have curly hair so I have to use a lot of products. I don't think it is because of those products though.

Wash your hair more often.

I have this thing where I can't wash my hair too often because that would mean air dry and I would catch a cold.

Why would you catch a cold from washing your hair?! Colds are caused by viruses

it is infections of the hair follicles that can cause scalp sensitivity. These infections can be painful, sore, or warm to the touch. They often affect the back of the neck, the back of the scalp, or the armpit.

Maybe your hair is always in the same style? If you change it slightly everyday the roots shouldn’t hurt

When I used to keep my hair back, it used to ache whenever I let it open before bed lol then I changed my parting line and that hurt even more haha

If OP had an infection for several months, they would be pretty unwell by now.

Nope, because I change it often. Sometimes it’s tied up tightly, or a low ponytail or half up half down or just left down lol
