How to wash your hair on the homestead (sans shower)
I have made a discovery since living out here and it's that you never appreciate things like showers until you have to do the following:
#1 find a wash basin of some kind that you can bend your head into.
#2 make sure you have enough water (again this might be hard if you have no well, if this is the case follow my suggestions for getting water on the last post)
#3 heat some water (again this might be hard, also you might want to watch the temps a bit closer than with dishes or clothes) I am sure you don't want the “OH MY GOD IT'S HOT” water.
#4 if you have long hair (anything past your shoulders) grab a partner as it is a team effort.
#5 pour your water into the basin
#6 pour COLD water into the basin as I'm sure it is too hot
#7 bend over the basin getting as much of your hair into the water as you can
#8 have your partner pour water over your head (watch the temps as hot for your scalp is different than hot for your hands)
#9 take hair out of water
#10 soap up hair (note you will be dripping water)
#11 put hair back in basin
#12 again have your partner pour water over your head
#13 Ring out water
Repeat for conditioner or dry
