You ladies will think I’m a nut for this one! So, I ended up sparking up a conversation with someone about hair and do you all want to know what we ended up intently discussing? Whether or not it is acceptable to wash your hair in the kitchen sink. Some people will see it as unhygienic and others take no issue with it.
My mother washed my hair in the kitchen sink as a child and my stance in the discussion was that it is not unhygienic since I wash the sink out after I wash my hair. Her stance was that dirty hair shouldn’t be cleaned near clean dishes and where food is prepared.
Whether or not you wash your hair in the sink there are 4 major points to consider:
1. Having an appropriate drain cover so that you don’t clog up your kitchen sink and/or built in garbage disposal
2. Do you have sensitive, or dry skin? What type of shampoo do you use? Cheap shampoos can dry out the skin on your face and body as it drips down when you rinse your hair
3. Consider the length of your hair in relation to the depth of your sink. Longer hair can become tangled when it is restricted from flowing down by the sink floor
4. If you’re adding color, it can be easier to distribute color in the sink and you will be less likely to stain other parts of your body while washing the color out
I enjoy a friendly debate from time to time. Ultimately, we are different people who have different beliefs and methods for getting things done. It can be fun to discover new ways of thinking about things or a new reason behind the method.
So shower or skin washing, which do you prefer?
