Haircuts post scoliosis surgery: A pain in the neck (literally!)

So I had my hair done this weekend and it reminded me that having my hair cut is one thing that I absoltuely hate doing post scoliosis surgery, that and shaving my legs. I try to put it off for as long as possible but some things are just unavoidable.

The problem is that going to the hairdressers is now a completely different experience from pre-surgery, and not an enjoyable one at that. This is mainly because I can’t bend my back to slouch into the hairdresser’s chair so I end up perching on the end of the chair sitting straight up or leaning back with my shoulder’s touching the top of the chair and a huge gap between my lower back and the back of the chair! It’s safe to say that sitting this way for a fair few hours is no fun.
The worst part is leaning back to have my hair washed, it’s sooo uncomfortable as I can’t mould my back to the chair and end up again with the huge gap between my lower back and the back of the chair. I used to enjoy having my hair washed at the hairdressers but now I just want them to hurry up and get on with it so I can get out of that horrible seat.

It’s probably my own fault for having foils that take hours but hey beauty is pain and I may have a sore back after visiting the hairdressers post surgery but at least my hair looks good! đŸ˜‰

Next time I’ll take a cushion…
