In the latest episode of Dose of DeAnn: A Glimpse Into My Life With SMA, I talk about getting a haircut. Given that it’s summer and I was in desperate need of a trim, I talk about this process and share my tips for getting a haircut when you have SMA.
The salon I go to is my cousin’s, which makes it easy because she knows my needs. Before she starts cutting my hair, she helps remove my headrest on my wheelchair so that it doesn’t get in the way. I also have her put an extra blanket behind me to catch all of the hair on both sides, and to keep it from getting all over my chair.
One other tip I have for SMA individuals is to wash your hair at home. Unless you have a method of transferring yourself out of your wheelchair when you’re at the salon, doing it at home is much easier in my opinion.
