You Hair while on Accutane
One of the great benefits of being on Accutane is that you don't need to wash your hair often. Honestly, I went a week and I washed my hair after the week. I could even have left it longer. It's just it's a bit gross, let's be honest, if you don't wash the ends of your hair after a week of being out, your body does not produce any oil, while stripping on this drug, and that goes with your scalp as well. That can lead to having quite a dry scalp. Luckily, I didn't suffer with that, but I know some people do.
So, the best thing to do is to look after your hair, like you're treating your skin, with lots of moisturizing products, so do the same for your hair.
A product I would really recommend for your hair, if you are on Accutane, is Argan oil. It can be used for your face, your body or your hair, and it does a really good job of moisturizing your hair. I would, basically, put a layer of this on before I wash my hair and leave it for about an hour or two. And then I wash out. My hair would feel a lot stronger and smoother. I would also recommend not blow-drying your hair as much as possible, because your hair is going to get really damaged. I have quite thick hair. Even while I was on Accutane, I could feel it really fitting out, not to the point where I have bald patches, but it would feel a lot thinner and brittle. So, I recommend using a product each week to moisturize your hair.
The same thing is with your shampoo and conditioner. If you do need to blow-dry it or straighten it, definitely, put a heat protector on, so that your hair can be saved as much as possible.
I also wanted to touch upon my color as well, because I still wanted to highlight my hair, when being on Accutane. Luckily, my friend is my hair, so I could really explain the situation to her. She understood that I didn't want to have my scalp fall off, which is what I was terrified of happening. I thought it was going to be burnt and really sore and irritated, but thankfully, she made sure that she didn't touch any of the peroxide or bleach on my scalp. It was just so about the tops of my hair. We just want them to do anyway, but it was just being super careful not to have the bleach touch my scalp.
