My mum is 93 with very fast growing, thick hair. She has a perm about 3 or 4 times a year and it 'shampoo'd and set ' every week.
Due to arthritis and a broken collar bone that didn't set correctly she can't wash it herself and has a mobile hairdresser visit the house. She lives alone and a carer goes in daily to cook her a meal.
The week before the lockdown she was due a cut and perm but her hairdresser had a bad cold and cancelled. So she now hasn't had her hair washed in a month.
I've dropped off some dry shampoo but her hair is too long, too straight and unmanageable for her. I've seen her from the garden and told her it looks fine. I lied.
This may seem trivial, but it's driving her mad and upsetting her quite a bit. Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?
