I was diagnosed about 8 months ago with a pretty significant syrinx. I don’t have the symptoms that most have reported just periodic head/neck pain and loss of heat/cold sensitivity on left side. I got a second opinion and felt much more comfortable with the 2nd neurosurgeon and have surgery scheduled for April. I am a teacher and want to have the rest of the summer to relax before returning to work.
My question is what to do with my natural hair. I have a keratin treatment that keeps it from becoming kinky but I feel like my head will hurt when I try to comb through. I usually have itching with braids. Anyone have experience with either post op combing or scalp care for African American hair?
