"Could I wash my hair during confinement?" is a question I receive all the time and I understand that this is near the top of the list of concerns for most mommies going into confinement.
The answer is YES! It will be intolerable being unable to shampoo your hair for the entire confinement period, especially for those with oily / dandruff prone scalp conditions. I will usually prepare warm herbal bath water for my clients. These medicinal herbs are easily available in Chinese Medical Halls. I advise mummies to wash their hair last. After you've washed your hair with the herbal bath water, immediately towel and blow dry.
