A Pretty Head Wrap for Health

Last month I broke my wrist, which has meant three doctor appointments so far. (It’s healing great, though! Not any slower than normal! πŸ™‚ )

But the normal scents and unavoidable chemical cleaners/disinfectants at the hospital were really tough to get out of my hair.

So I decided to try a wrap after a friend suggested it.  I found a wonderful video and showed it to Steve so he could help me until my wrist is better.  For some reason, I can’t get the video to embed here, but there are many videos you can find on YouTube on head wraps that are very helpful.

Here’s how mine turned out:  πŸ™‚ 

It really helped!! As soon as I got to the car after the hospital visit, it took it off (along with other outer layers of clothing with clothing underneath still not too contaminated). Then of course bath at home. I keep forgetting that you can also blow-dry (outside!) your dry hair even before washing, and that helps. too.

And I thought this looked much nicer than the time I tried an appointment with a towel on my head.  LOL

I cannot tolerate any masks (long story), but I can help protect my hair; hair is so absorbent of vocs.

When I get better and can go out more & more, I am thinking I will probably do this type of head wrap all the time. It would be fun to try different colors and styles and techniques.

About Christa Upton

I am a wife and mother of three children ages 11, 14, and 18. I used to be a stay-at-home mom (teaching piano & dance, volunteering, etc). From 2007 to 2010, I suffered accidental Toxic Injury (also called Multiple Chemical Sensitivity or MCS). MCS has had major impact on our family, but the forced time in bed has given me time to write. So far, I have published 4 children's books (2 in e-book format on Kindle, one in Print-on-Demand at CreateSpace, and one printed by a local printer). Sometimes I miss my old life, but I love writing for children!
