today i went to get my hair cut and they went to shampoo my hair. and you no how the seat tilts back and you have to put your head in the sink. usually it is uncomfortable but today my neck pain was unbearable. has this happened to anyone else?
Hi, my dr said not to use the sinks at a hair salon.I always had a problem prior to my dx.and have not been back to one.My one hair dresser Knew this was a sorce of pain for me and would hold my head up at my neck which really helped.
I would suggest washing ur hair prior to going and get there with a wet head.......
I'm really not able to tolerate having my hair shampooed anymore. Some instances are better than others, though. My stylist is aware of my situation and uses towels in addition to an extra cushion she has to support my neck. I have my hair colored every 6 weeks and it's a challenge getting it out unless she shampoos me, so I suck it up! If it gets too painful, I raise my head a bit then lay back down.
at least u guys have hair lol i cut mine all off now i have the shortest hair in the world cause they shaved all of the back of my hair so i just cut the front and top of my head so when it grows it will be even so im waiting...and waiting....and waiting....lol
I almost did that too.....at TCI they really shave alot of hair...basically I have my bangs...the come down to my chin...and I have hair down over my ears....the back is all an inch if that......so I pull my bangs up along with all my other hair and make a pony tail....and I wear a hat.
I can't cut my hair or it would be all gray......sigh
lol yep....well whats worse is i dyed my hair jet black before the surgery well like a week before cause i wanted to idk well anyways my hair is short and black uh! not that i knew i was going into surgery but i regret it outta all things in life is cutting my hair lol but oh well guess it was for the best i wounder how long its going to take cause it took 20years for it to get to it was the 1st time so.....hmm...maybe im thinking to much...not that there is anything else to do but think and write!
Oh I understand......I was 3 months late in getting a haircut prior to surgery...my dr at TCI said let it long.....even at my follow up at 3 weeks, he said to not cut it to even it out.....and the fact that it is as long as it is - hides the gray.....
I too am thinking too much about my hair....lol....
I was told 6 to 8 weeks and I have been just fine with having it colored. Thankfully, Dr. Oro takes a very small amount of hair! I didn't cut my hair prior to surgery because I wasn't sure what to expect afterwards and you couldn't even tell I had a reverse mohawk up the back of my head when I wore it down! But I just cut it two weeks ago into an A-line bob so all the length in the back would be even.
I know, I was more concerned about my hair more than anything prior to surgery! It was kind of ridiculous. But, hey, I'm a girl! We care about stuff like this! LOL!
I have it professionally colored. Actually, the salon color is not stronger. It depends upon the color line they are using. It depends upon the ammonia content in the color line and many of the 'over the counter' brands are very high in ammonia despite their claim to the contrary. You can get ammonia free color, but it is technically considered to be demi or semi permanent color. You will not get the degree of gray coverage with demi or semi or the longevity of color as you will with permanent.
In addition to my career, I am a salon consultant on the side for a professional beauty distributor. I've been working with professional hair care lines for over 8 years primarily Paul Mitchell. Although I am not a cosmetologist, I have attended more color education than I care to even think about! I can and do color my own hair when I'm in a pinch (with only professional products, mind you) and do color some of my friends. I just prefer to have the latest techniques and colors in my hair, so it definitely takes someone else doing it for me for it turn out.
I'm sure you could get away with using a demi or a semi if you're hesitant to color it. They're not as harsh as permanent color and it will at least blend your gray.
