Due to constant calp and head aches and sensitivity, I had to cut my hair really short. Has anyone else done the same, or if you do have the same problem, what are you doing in order to cope with wearing long hair?

      I had to cut my hair a long time ago because having it long and putting it in ponytails and such was super painful so I definitely get this

      I use baby shampoo and conditioner. There’s a formula at Walmart that’s a bit on the pricey side, about $6-8 dollars a bottle. I don’t shampoo my hair daily otherwise my hair & scalp tend to dry- out. I also incorporate a regular baby shampoo ( Johnson & Johnson) in between to clarify any of build-up. Try that. I hope it helps. ❤️‍🩹

      ✋ Same here. Easy to manage. Constantly headaches…

        @Gocon how do you cope? I've been putting ibuprofen gel lately

      That's strange that you say that! My scalp and head hurts sometimes, especially if I have just washed my hair! Very interesting 🤔.xx

        @Kristy28 what do you do to reduce the aches?

      Honestly, I keep my hair shorter because I genuinely don't like it touching me. It's not scalp pain or headaches. It's the ends of my hair touching my face, ears, and neck. It's irritating so the hair has to go away.

        @Hatchytt it's this for me too! I tried to grow it out and it was so irritating on my ears and around my neck. I have to have it really short now.
