So, how do you shampoo a slippery little Mom without water?
Here are a couple of tricks:
1. Sprinkle baby powder or spray a dry shampoo product ("Pssst") into the hair. Brush well.
- or, try this one:
2. I found a great product, "No Rinse Shampoo," in a beauty supply company for about $6.00/bottle. You work it into dry hair with your fingers, towel dry, and style! Here are photos of my Mom's experience. It worked great, and solved a small - but real - problem.
A great, and inexpensive solution!
I remember using a rinseless shampoo with Steve when he was bed-ridden. That one was called a "shampoo cap." You put what looked like a treated shower cap on his head, rubbed the shampoo in, and toweled him dry. Again, a great solution - though more expensive.
Anyone who has been a care provider understands that it's the little solutions that make the biggest differences!
