The former beauty pageant queen admitted she hasn’t been able to follow her regular hair regime since the procedure as she shared: ‘My hair hasn’t been washed in nine days as since having the operation, I haven’t been able to get my tresses wet.

‘So I’ve just been sitting in the bath just to have a little wash. I’ve managed to wash it once since the operation, which was two weeks ago. 

‘You can imagine how greasy it is, dry shampoo can’t even help it. I’ve had me dressings off and I went to the hospital yesterday.’

The bandaged star went on to perform a range of stretches, which she has to repeat three times a day. 

Grimacing in pain, the Newcastle native said: ‘I have to keep the front and the back one on as it hasn’t healed properly, it’s still a bit raw. I’m going to be able to go in the shower and wash me hair properly tomorrow!

‘I’m proper buzzing, I didn’t know I’d be this excited to wash my hair! My hair is my pride and joy. Now my arm aches but that’s normal. It’s so so so uncomfortable but it has to be done and I’ll get physio for it.

The media personality previously revealed she may be scarred for life following the accident.

TV star Rebecca – whose arm was protected in a brace – said in a video last month: ‘I’m just so angry inside and hate not being able to do things for myself.

‘I hate it so much but just hope I can have a speedy recovery and that it heals itself quicker than expected because it’s awful, man. 

‘I just wanted to come and chat to quickly to give you an update. I’m struggling to reply to people because I’m right handed and that’s the arm I’ve damaged.

‘Basically I fell and that’s the arm I damaged really bad. Basically I fell and I’m lucky I didn’t snap my neck. You’ve got this clavical (collarbone) bone. It’s like it came out of its place but it’s damaged as well.’

Confessing she can ‘hardly move’, the reality star – who was dressed in silk PJs by Dior – elaborated: ‘It’s like one of the four worst bones to damage or break in your body so you can imagine the pain I’m in.

‘Honestly my arm is deformed and it could take six weeks if not longer to heal. I can get an operation after that if it doesn’t heal but then I’m going to be left with a massive scar and it could still be deformed. 

‘I’m just absolutely sick because I can’t do anything for myself. I’m very independent so I like it do things for myself. I’m so so frustrated, so frustrated.’ 

The social media star also expressed her gratitude towards her fans, mother, and boyfriend Biggs Chris for their support. 

Rebecca and former car repairman Biggs, 28, have been dating for nearly a year following unsuccessful stints on the ITV dating series.
