Cleaning out the drain is high on the list of worst chores in life. Especially when you have (and lose) a lot of hair. We like to find small ways to put off this loathsome activity. Most of your hair breakage happens on wash day, so if you want to lose less hair then start with your shower habits.
Get a Shower Mirror
A fog-free shower mirror is a great asset to your hair care shower routine. Most of us have grown up not using one so we manage to care for our hair without it. We fumble around blindly parting our hair and feeling to ensure we have everything out and everything in. It is a pain but it is so much a part of the routine that we do not realize how it can be easier. With a shower mirror that is fog-free you can see your parts. You see if all is rinsed out and all the conditioner is covering all of your head.
Rinse with Tea
Tea rinses for hair shedding are becoming increasingly popular as curlies find them easy to create, master, and very beneficial at stopping some hair shedding in its tracks. All you have to do is steep the tea and allow it to cool before pouring over your hair and scalp after cleansing and conditioning your hair in the shower. Then, massage your scalp before continuing your hair routine, as there is no need to rinse it out.
Black tea, made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis bush, is a favorite for tea rinses as it contains more caffeine than a cup of coffee.
Use Croc Clips
Scrunchies are out! Rubber bands are out! Even ouchless hair bands are really not that ouchless as I still get hair tangled up in them. The solution? Colortrak Tools The Croc Clips that will not slip, snag, or yank your tresses while you part your hair in the shower.
The Goody Ouchless Flex barrette is my favorite barrette. I have never yanked my hair out with them and they are amazing in the shower. Using the correct tools in the shower will leave little room for yanking out hair and incurring hair loss at your own hands.
