My sweet Mother is currently in the hospital for open-heart surgery and needed her hair washed, but was too weak to stand up. I went in search of a way to wash her hair and found this great tutorial!
I had already used the dry shampoo on her hair, but that will only last for so long and it feels dirty again. I’m a lot like my Mom, so I knew she would feel better if her hair were clean.
After watching this tutorial I went on Amazon and found the perfect basin for washing her hair in her hospital bed.
The first thing they did was put down a plastic pad…I used a pet pad and it worked perfectly. There was very little water that got on it.
The basin I bought was plastic and it had a place for her neck to go and there was also a support built into it for her head to rest on and it worked like a charm!
Mom felt so much better after having her hair washed, which I knew she would, and it makes me feel like I could give something back to her after all these years.
