How to Shower Without Getting Your Hair Wet. Sometimes it's necessary to get clean in the shower but not wash your hair. Hair-washing and the care that comes afterwards can be time-consuming and you may be in a hurry. There are few simple things you can do to shower without getting your hair wet.

Items you will need

  • Shower cap
  • Bobby pins
  • Hair clips
  • Scrunchie
  • Plastic grocery bag
  • Handheld showerhead
  • Shower Stick
Step 1

Wear a shower cap. This works best if you have short to medium hair length. Make sure you tuck in all the hairs underneath the shower cap to keep the water out.

Step 2

Place your hair into a bun before putting on the shower cap if you have very long hair. Hold the bun in place with bobby pins or small clips. Most shower caps won't hold a heavy head of hair too well so alleviate the problem by pinning your hair comfortably before donning the cap.

Step 3

Use a scrunchie and a clip for longer hair if you don't know how to put your hair in a bun. Pull your hair back as if you are making a low ponytail. Leave a long tail without pulling the hair all the way through the scrunchie. Clip the remaining hair from the ponytail to the back of your head. Cover with a shower cap if you prefer.

Step 4

Cover your hair with a plastic grocery bag if you don't have a shower cap. Place the bag over your hair, tucking it all in, and use the handles to tie it at the base of your neck. Adjust it as you need to for a perfect and very inexpensive fit.

Step 5

Change the angle that your showerhead hits you. Aim it further down your body so that your hair remains dry through the shower.

Step 6

Get a handheld showerhead. You can control where the water hits you and at what speed and pressure it hits you as well.

Step 7

Purchase a Shower Stick. Shower Sticks connect to your existing bathroom hardware and feature a long rod that sprays water directly at your body, avoiding the head area and keeping your hair dry.

Warnings

  • Avoid rain shower-style shower heads. It is nearly impossible to keep from getting your hair wet because they spray directly onto the top of your head.
