hair colour


Recommended Posts

Hi all,a question for the ladies, Merrill had her sah almost a year ago, and a month after the sah she had shunt fitted, because merrill suffers from excema there has'nt been a time untill this week that she has not had a minor infection somewhere in her head, well my question is that if you have a shunt fitted is there any problems involved with her having a colour put on her hair, does anyone colour their hair, and has anyone had problems with colouring their hair, Thanks Rod

Hi Rod,

I don't have a shunt and was coiled, so I don't have any scar tissue. I haven't found colouring my hair to be a problem, but would imagine that it would be safer for Merrill to do a test strand with the colour, before doing the whole head. I'm presuming that you're talking about home hair dye?

I found the following information from the Wessex Neuro website. http://www.suht.nhs.uk/OurServices/Nervoussystem/SAHSubArachnoidHaemorrhage/FrequentlyAskedQuestions.aspx

When can I dye or perm my hair?

As soon as any wound has healed it is o.k. for you to wash you hair, it is also safe to dye or perm your hair if you wish. If you have had surgery, you may find that your scalp is more sensitive, particularly to temperature fluctuations of hot or cold, therefore you should be more aware of water temperature when washing you hair. For the same reason you may find it more comfortable to wear a hat and protect your head in hot and cold weather.

I agree with Paul and definitely a good, practical question to ask Rod! ....:-D

I used to be a "Saturday Girl" at a hairdressers, so have mainly always done my own hair. The only thing that I can't do now, is use a Hi-lighting cap, for blonde streaks, as I just find it too tight and it sends my head into spasms!
