Silly question maybe? What to do with long hair at the castle?

This probably seems silly to most of you.....but I just have this *thing* with my hair! It's fairly long, but very thick and frizzy. If I don't wash it, blow dry it, and put it back I look like Medusa!! :hair: Any recomendations on what to do with it for the trip to the castle? I'm thinking maybe braids or pony tail? Can you even where pony tail holders or clips at the castle?

Thanks for advice.......from a silly LIW who has mega-fear of bed head!!!!

Hi there!

First of all, there is no such thing as a silly question. And being someone with long thick hair too, I understand why you would ask this.

You won't be able to wear any kind of clips or anything in your hair during surgery, but afterwards, you should be allowed to wear it however you want.

Good luck with your Princess hairstyle.

French Braid

I put mine in a french braid. It holds all of it up and seems to be sturdy and not fall out so easily. My hair is half way down my back and keeping it down at the castle woulda been a comb threw nightmare LOL

Take care

I too have very long curly, thick hair (down to my thighs). Just prior to going to surgery, I plaited it. I wasn't allowed to keep the band on the end of it as it had metal in it.

However, after surgery, my hair was the last thing I thought about. Day 2 I was able to have a shower. I sat on the chair in the shower, unplaited my hair, washed it, brushed it and replaited it.

I don't blow dry. I would be there all day, however I was just pleased that I was able to wash it and replait it.

All the very best for your surgery.

Regards
Gail

I have long curly hair also and I wore my pulled back in a pony tail. I used a scrunchie and they did not mind at all. Just make sure it doesn't have metal and they probably will let you keep it in. But all hospitals seem to be different so I'd ask ahead of time. Good luck, Ann
