I have below the shoulder length hair, very fine strands but very full head of hair and easily tangled. I have tried going at my head every way I can think of to try to get the medicated shampoo on my scalp where it's needed. I just end up basically rubbing hair on more hair (like folded over or piled up) and hoping it's somehow reaching my scalp. Please any suggestions how to get shampoo on my scalp better? I can't take a long time doing it, due to health issues I can't have my arms up long. Example - I tried parting smaller sections to try to get in as many "parts" I could make to try to get shampoo directly on scalp, but it took a very long time, I ended up still tangling my hair, and had to use extra shampoo this way- and couldn't raise my arms for the next couple of days. I need a quicker method please.
It sounds like you need to enlist the help of family or a good friend to part your hair and get it to your scalp. If you don't have anyone that can help ... If it were me I would put it in a bottle with a long skinny spout, like a single use enema bottle , try to put loads of detangler in your hair and get it all combed out so you can part it easily, part it in at least four lines one at a time and apply it directly to your scalp on the parts you make. Then use a long skinny nozzle to apply it in your parts. As long as you have 4 or more lines of the medication it should spread to your entire scalp. I hope this helps!( You could even put the shampoo in one of the enema bags you hang on a shower curtain rod, it has a long hose with a clamp you can open and close the flow of water, or shampoo, and a applicator at the end of the hose. That way you won't have to hold the added weight of a bottle of shampoo.)
*Another idea is that most hair salons will wash your hair for like 5-10$, you could make an appointment for a shampoo only and just bring your medicated shampoo.
