In brief: See Your MD
"blackouts" or losing consciousness should not occur from manipulation of the scalp or hair. There are many reasons one might have a "blackout" episode and some of them are serious medical conditions that may be related to your heart, blood vessels, nervous system, and psychological wellbeing.
Best to see your doctor and report these problems right away.
