So here is day 3 and 4 all in one post!
I can tell it's really starting to break up and the scabs are breaking loose from my scalp. I was able to comb quite a bit out of it however there is still quite a bit to go.
I've been wearing hats a lot lately because the meds are so oily so it looks as if I haven't washed my hair in weeks.. Kinda gross actually.
So here are the pics.
You can see all the little bits that are breaking up.
Still looks nasty and my hair is still mostly plastered to my scalp. Because it is breaking up and not quite so attached to my scalp it has been harder to put a comb through it. The pick/comb will end up under one of the scabs which is quite painful. Still been loosing quite a bit of hair but I still have high hopes!
Below are the scabs that seem to be the hardest to break up. I have large ones on each side of my head close to my temples.
Tonight we are going to make sure we soak them good with the overnight oil and hope that it helps break them up!
I let the overnight meds sit on my head a little bit longer than normal. Mostly because I'm lazy and I stayed in bed really late because I was tired and sore from working on the house on Saturday.
I finally got up around 11am and took a shower using the T/Sal shampoo and after put the other oil on my head. Gosh I hate that stuff.. again oily hair = gross. I miss being able to do my hair and not feel like I need to wear a hat to cover it up!
But later in the day I was feeling around and i could tell that those scabs by my temples had loosened up and were no longer attached to my scalp! Sweet!!
So early in the evening I took a fine tooth comb and starting removing the scabs that it would let me.
And you know what?....
I got almost every scab off my head!! Holy Cow! Check these pictures out!
I'm super excited!
We will do another really light treatment of the oil tonight and I'll wash my hair with the medicated shampoo again in the morning. I will assess then if I'm going to put the other oil in my hair as I hate to use it and I have to go to work.. and it would be nice not to have to have gross oily hair.
I am super happy I finally got this taken care of! My Husband has been wonderful in helping me put all the meds on my scalp! Many mucho thanks!
Now it's all about prevention and growing my dang hair back!
More updates later!
