I had a subdural hematoma a year ago, is it safe to dye my hair ?

I had a subdural hematoma a year ago, and would like to rinse/dye my hair is it safe? I understand that the holes they drilled in my head will never close and my concern is will the dye seep through and do harm.

No the dye will not seep through. This doesnt mean that you are safe from the usual problems of Dye- allergy.

It seems that you have been operated for subdural hematoma before one year.
It iseyour misconcept that after operation on head you can't rinse/dye your hairs.
Your fear of seeping is also not correct. You can very well rinse/dye your hairs.

I will try my best to answer your query.

After burr hole surgery you may shower without covering the incision one week after the staples are out. What i meant is you can apply dye without any problem.

Hope my answer will be helpful for you.

Take care.
