Bloody haircut!

Bloody haircut!

What is a haircut? “the act of making hair shorter” ~ Does this sound like something that would cause pain? The thought never crossed my mind. In the past it was a relaxing social hour. I would sit and have someone wash my hair – massage my scalp – comb my hair – and style it to look like I would never get it to look like when I got home.
So why should yesterday have been any different?
I wrote the other day that I have this inability to stop scratching/diggin at my scalp. I am becoming more aware of my doing it. I have been trying so hard to stop.
During the shampooing – she started to massage my scalp. My scalp now covered in open and dried up sores. Putting any kind of pressure on my scalp now hurts but the areas around the sores are so very tender.
She suggested wearing a swimming cap to help keep my hair protected from the chlorine in the pool. OMG – NO – Is she trying to kill me by the suggestion alone?
Then onto “the chair” and ”the comb” – a newfounded torture tool. Combing my hair is now a punishment. The comb was hitting my scalp. I kept my eyes closed so that she could not see the cringe. I could tell that she wanted to chat with me and was asking me questions. I gave very short answers. I just wanted it to be over. I wasn’t thinking when she started to blow dry my hair. The brush hurt. Even the very soft no bristle brush at home hurts. I try to comb with out touching the scalp.
As you can tell – I survived but the time between hair cuts could become much longer.
