    Generally speaking, you can just do it like usual and do it more carefully. People can return to normal life several days after cataract surgery. But to achieve the best of recover, great importance shall be attached to eye care. When you wash hair, keep your eyes away from shampoo or bubbles. Chemical substance in it will burn your eyes and make damage. Additionally, do not use shampoo which have strong smells. Too strong smell will bring stimulations to your eyes. Meanwhile, do not dye your hair or wave your hair or straight your hair. Anything about hairstyle will be done with special staff. They are both smelling and chemical. Get rid of them for a while until your eyes are totally recovered. During the period, nothing could be in your eyes except eye-drops. When you washing hair, close your eyes tightly or have someone to help as needed.
