Our household of six includes four females who wear their hair long.Both of our showers have drain covers that should catch the hair and prevent it from going down the drain, but some hair has inevitably slipped through. We’ve dealt with our share of clogged drains over the years, so we’ve been concerned about those renegade strands.Well, we now have a little trick to capture the lost hair, but it might seem a little gross to somebody who doesn’t like thinking about bathrooms and hair, and for that I apologize in advance.When we shampoo and condition, it’s normal for us to lose a few hairs in the process–having been through great hormonal flux through four pregnancies, I have lost a lot of hair over the years.Here’s the trick: as we run our fingers through our hair, we make an effort to hang onto the stray strands and then stick them on the wall of the shower–we just unwind the strands from our fingers and press them right onto the wall. They magically cling.Okay, so it’s not magic. It’s rudimentary science. The moisture of the hair, steam, and water itself is adequate to hold the lightweight hairs up there until we’re done showering.Anyway, when we’re done, we just swoosh our fingers along the shower wall to swirl together all the strands. They form a little wad of hair. After drying off, we just toss the wad in the trash can.Very few hairs escape.And no clogged shower drains.I suspect that the older two girls who have been taking extra-long showers have been undertaking creative, artistic ventures, forming little line drawings by positioning the hair on the white canvas of our shower tiles, but I’m not 100 percent sure of this, because the hairs are all in the trash by the time I can inspect.This hair-on-the-wall containment trick has worked for us. The Belgian Wonder is super-supportive, pleased to minimize potential plumbing issues.For more Works For Me Wednesday ideas, hop on over to Rocks In My Dryer.Or, before heading back to Shannon, you can check out my own collection of odd and assorted WFMW ideas.
