Hair Care

Hair Care

Hair care involves combing and brushing the hair to stimulate scalp circulation, remove dead cells and debris, and distribute hair oils to produce a healthy sheen. Frequency of hair care depends on the length and texture of the patient’s hair, the duration of hospitalization, and the patient’s condition. Usually, hair should be combed and brushed daily.

Preparation of Equipment

The comb and brush should be clean. If necessary, wash them in hot, soapy water. The comb should have dull, even teeth to prevent scratching the scalp. The brush should have stiff bristles to enhance vigorous brushing and stimulation of circulation.
