Best way to wash your hair with a broken foot/ankle?
I broke my foot about a month ago. I can t bear any weight on it yet. I ve figured out cleaning myself but still haven t figured out my hair. I have access to a cramped half bathroom but my hair is too long and thick to get it in the small sink. I ve been going to a local hair salon but I can t get up the steps. Any ideas? TIA

Oh, bull! I've had a broken foot and a sprained ankle, both at once. If you broke your foot a month ago, you probably have a "boot" to wear on your foot. You can walk with a boot on your foot and you can stand with a boot on your foot. You can certainly stand in one spot in front of the sink long enough to wash your hair - no matter how long your hair is.l

Get a shower chair, sit in it and take your shower/wash your hair. If you have a broken foot, i'm sure you have a doctor, and he can prescribe a chair to be delivered. Most insurance will pay for these chairs.

ask someone to help you by filling a bowl and pouring some warm water over your head with a cup etc

maybe you could put a bench in the shower and wash it that way or have someone from a home care agency come to help you out, maybe you could cut your hair or shave it off and wear a wig and then you wont have nothing to wash till your foot heals up

Can you put a stool / chair in the shower base? It would have to be waterproof.

If you have a sink that's deep enough, maybe try washing your hair in that but try not to put any weight on your foot.
