I Have Been Going Through A Very Difficult Time. I

Posted on Fri, 19 Jun 2020
Question: I have been going through a very difficult time. I haven’t washed my hair in more than a month. (You read that right.) I’m planning to wash it tonight. Weirdly, my scalp doesn’t hurt and it only itches somewhat. Do I need to be extra gentle - maybe just slightly rubbing the shampoo on and rinsing it off? I’m scared of my head bleeding everywhere and getting an infection. Any advice? Any way to get my scalp clean safely? Thank you.

I have gone through your query and noted your concern.

There is nothing to get scared and worried just because you haven't shampooed your scalp for a long time. Wash your head just as you would normally do with your regular shampoo on any other day.
