II Corinthians 12:9-10

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities... for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong."
II Corinthians 12:9-10

Post-Surgery Hair Cuts

When dealing with back problems, a few things can be a little less enjoyable at times. For me, that would be getting my hair cut.

I was reminded of this recently. It's been a while, and I realized again how sitting in those chairs for so long (since my hair was so thick and long) really makes my back sore for the rest of the night. The problem, in my opinion, is when they wash your hair. When I lean back in the chair, my back doesn't even touch it. Only my shoulder blades actually touch the chair because I can't slouch down into it. But that's not too much of a problem, as long as they are fast hair washers.

My first haircut after surgery was about a month and a half later. That was pretty painful. But I brought two pillows, and it really helped. Plus, my hair stylist new about my surgery, so she was very careful.

This time I donated my hair to Locks of Love. It always feels great to help others, whether it's blogging about scoliosis or donating hair.

I've also tried donating blood, but that didn't work out so well. It usually never does. I think I'll stick to donating my hair.

  1. Oh I can relate to this! I had scoliosis surgery last year and I now find getting my hair cut awkward, especially leaning back to have my hair washed! It's weird not being able to slouch into a chair. Glad someone else feels the same - great post! :)
