Washing My Hair Using Less Water


Early last month, I was trying to not wash my hair in the shower anymore b/c I felt that I was wasting too much water doing so. I'm on my eco-conscious ish, ya know.

I decided I was going to start washing my hair in the (kitchen) sink. I went out and bout a lil hose attachment thingy and was ret to go......
.......................................................................................................

This method was just not workin for ya girl. I tried it 2 times (2 weeks; I wash once a week) and it takes me longer than if I was in the shower and from my observations, I'm using the same amount of water! I was getting water everywhere, in my ear, across the kitchen area....Everywhere but on my dag on hair it seemed like.

Maybe practice makes perfect but I lost all interest in practicing this anymore.

That's what I get for stepping out on what works best for me, right? I cheated on the shower and I got played. LOL. With that being said, I went back to the shower "tail between my legs".

I figured out a way to reduce my water usage. I observed that I waste water detangling in the shower. So I got the idea to detangle my hair BEFORE I washed it. Eureka! Now I understand everyone may not be able to do this but this realization has been a GEM for me.

My next post will give details on how I do it.

Let me tell you, doing it this way, I wasn't in the shower for more than 15 mins. There is hope!

This technique is a keeper.

LOL i'm like the only person who probably doesn't do it because i'm afraid to break out worse haha. I did try it a few times and it actually takes me longer in the shower. I wash my hair once every two weeks in the kitchen sink and its so quick for me. You are right though, basically if it ain't broke don't fix it LOL
