Head picking and hairdresser?

Recommended Posts

iI have a apt in a few days, and i forgot to ask or talk to her about my head, she knows i have anxiety, but i dont think she knows about my poor head(its very bad), i head pick too much, and i have scabs ( i know gross ), i've never got my hair coloured at a hairdresser before and im scared of what she will think or if she wont do my hair at all due to hygiene ( i guess like if someone came in and they had lice ) ? I dont know what to do and of course freaking out because thats what i do best.

I want to call before i go in, but im still scared to bring it up, let alone making the phone call.

I dont want to cancel either, because thats also what i do best, i dont know what to do, i asked my mum she she it will be fine ( apart from the colour going onto the bad areas ) im not worried about that, more worried if she cant do my hair or what she will think and how bad it looks ( since i cant look at my own head >.> )

I think that hairdressers will usually do anyone's hair, as long as there isn't anything that can be spread to other customers. Like lice. But that's not the case for you, so it should be okay

I used to dye my hair alot. I haven't done so years in years now, so things could be different now, but when I did, I always noticed on the directions that it says if you have scabs or open sores that you shouldn't dye your hair. I would imagine it will burn. 

It's nothing to be ashamed of or scared about but I think you should probably call and ask what the hair dresser thinks. I promise you they won't think badly of you or be grossed out. I just think it would be good to ask because you probably don't want to go there just to be turned away.

I dye my hair all the time- you can't dye it with open wounds/scabs, as not only will it BURN SO BAD, but the hair dye getting in them is bad news bears. You could ask your hairdresser to do an off-the-scalp color like they do with bleach?

Definitely good to ask before going. It's going to be more embarrassing if you have to leave the salon than if all you have to do is hang up the phone.

I got my hair done! She was busy with a client so i couldnt say to her straight away ( im super shy lol )

Yeah ive known about the open ' wounds'- ive had these for years now sadly ( no pdoc or doc has ever helped with the head picking so ive just been a nasty habit for way too long )

I really should have called - If it was a hairdresser i didnt know well i would have called or made more of a effect - Even though i dont know her well, ive been seeing her for few years now maybe ( wow thats gone by fast ) for my waxing - So really i should have still made more of a effort to call first because then if i got turned away, i would have been too embarrassed to come back for my normal waxing ( and that would suck, im fussy with my waxing, well im fussy anyways lol )

Its true, i got my hair with foils ( i dont know if thats a difference really ) but it didnt hurt, then again because of had these 'gross dots' on my head for years now im use to the pain, also dying over them ( yeah not wise people.. ) I've only used home dyes at home that at semi perm, Manic Panic dyes ( once again no recommended dont be stupid like me )

I wish i had read your posts before i went for my apt yesty, because i could have asked about the off scalp colour to make sure it wouldnt touch ( i didnt really think of that since i forget things alot with my anxiety kicking my ass)
