Home Remedy: Conditioner as burn treatment

Pin it button big

On Thanksgiving day I pulled the classic kitchen error. While scrambling to get everything on the table, I put a pan that had just come out of the oven into the sink. Then, without thought, turned around to wash said pan and picked it straight up with my bare hand.

Thanksgiving dinner consisted of a wrapped hand with ice, soaking it in tea (tea is suppose to take the sting out). It wasn't until post-dinner when I was contemplating an ER visit that I remembered a product class I took in my past life as a Salon GM. Nioxin's hair system consisting of a conditioner called Scalp Therapy was also toted as a burn remedy and we used it often in the salon when stylists burned themselves with curling irons.

I gooped on two layers of the Scalp Therapy and approx 20 minutes later my hand was perfect. No pain, and little to no redness. The next day I had only one tiny area slightly blistered. I'm not quite sure how the lotion works, but I can give it four gold stars in the burn department. It's also pretty fantastic for people allergic to all things cosmetic or those with excema, as well as its other "hair salvation" properties.
