What the hell. Is this normal? I was using it for the itch, I normally dilute it with water, this time I didn't, and boom.

Well, it's not white anymore. But is this how it normally works, or did I use too much?

When your scalp is healthy it is supposed to be white(ish). Look at the areas of your scalp without hair loss vs. the usual shiny-waxy
oily mpb prone areas.

No, this turned my head white instantly. Not "normal scalp white," white white. I have fairly tan skin normally. It slowly went away after a half hour (I immediately doused my head in water after putting it on. It burned like hell, then I made the poor decision of putting on rogaine foam, and then emu oil. Now I washed away the emu oil, and it started burning like hell, so I added some scalpicin (the hydrocortisone kind). My scalp is pretty inflamed now. Isn't salicylic acid anti-inflammatory?
