Tips On How To Keep Your Hair Dry While Showering

Updated on March 1, 2015

There may be days when you are showering but you do not want to wash your hair or get your hair wet. Wearing a shower cap is usually the most common way to keep your hair dry. If you do not have a shower cap around, here are a few tips on how to keep your hair dry.

Plastic Shopping Bag

Those plastic shopping bags from retail stores can come in handy if you are trying to keep your hair from getting wet in the shower. If you have an empty plastic shopping bag around, make sure that the bag does not have any holes in it so that water can not leak through. If you have long or medium length hair, you may want to put your hair up in a bun using a hair band. Pile your hair on top of your head and try to get all of the pieces in the hair band so that there are no stray hairs sticking out. Place the plastic bag over the top of your head and tie the bag handles around the nape of your neck.

Freezer Bag

It is also possible to use a large freezer bag over your head. It is better to pull your hair back or put it up first. Make sure that the freezer bag fits over your head and that it covers your hair on both sides and in the back of your head. You could secure the bag with either an extra large rubber band, an elastic headband or a long piece of string.

Saran Wrap

You may want to use regular plastic wrap or saran wrap to try to keep your hair dry while showering. Put your hair up in a bun first if your hair is past your shoulders. Then, you can rip off a long piece of saran wrap and place it over your head. If you have a stretchy elastic headband, then place the headband around your head to keep the saran wrap secure. Make sure that the saran wrap is in place and does not slide around on your head. It might be hard to keep saran place in place, so this idea might be used as a last resort.

Handheld Shower

Using a handheld shower head may keep your hair dry, especially if you do not have anything to keep your hair covered. If your hair is past your shoulders, you may want to put it up to avoid getting it wet while washing your body. You can use the handheld shower head to focus only on getting your body wet and not your hair.

Take A Bath

If you are comfortable taking a bath, you may want to do that instead and then do a quick rinse in the shower. Put your hair up if it is long. This will give you less time in the shower to expose your hair to the possibility of getting it wet. There is a possibility that some of your hair could still get wet even if it is covered. By limiting your time in the shower, you may cut your chances of your hair getting wet. Always make sure that the covering you use on your head does not have any holes in it and that it fits securely around your head. This will help keep your hair as dry as possible.
