totally vain question

Since we went to the hospital after a regular appt, I didn't get a chance to dye my hair. I'm just over 1 week post op. Anyone dye their own hair and know if it would irritate or otherwise harm my incision? thanks

I would get it professionally done. If the dye gets into your incission I imagine that can open a dangerious door to infection.

You may have to sit down to dye it, but you should be fine.

Not down there, just wondering if the at home dye will wash down and disturb a fresh (now 2 weeks post op) scar/incision.

Do you have a detachable showerhead and/or someone that could help you rinse your hair? Or you could try just blocking the incision from any dye running down. After my c-section, I was paranoid about irritating my incision and I recall blocking it with my hand or washcloth when I would rinse shampoo and conditioner out of my hair.
