I am not understanding your question. Can you tell us more about what you are afraid could happen?

If you are having your menstrual period and washing your hair, nothing can happen.

The only concern I could assume you are referring to is sitting in the bathtub while bleeding, and taking the time to wash your hair, and you are wanting to know if this is a problem? Most women do not bleed very much while in the bathtub or shower (throughout your entire period, there is only about 1-2 Tablespoons of blood...it seems like a lot more!). There would not be much, if any, blood in the bathtub or shower. If you are concerned, you could use a tampon if bathing in a tub. If in the shower, the blood would just wash away, and it is only a teaspoon or less of blood.

If that does not answer your question, please provide more details or explanation about your concerns.
