Best way to wash your hair with a broken foot/ankle?

I broke my foot about a month ago. I can t bear any weight on it yet. I ve figured out cleaning myself but still haven t figured out my hair. I have access to a cramped half bathroom but my hair is too long and thick to get it in the small sink. I ve been going to a local hair salon but I can t get up the steps. Any ideas? TIA

    Get a shower seat. These chairs are available at most larger drug stores and basic no-frills models are inexpensive. It will make your life so much easier and with less stress on your broken ankle it will heal faster. And you can have real showers instead of sponge baths at the sink -plus you can easily wash your hair while seated. With a doctor's note it can be paid for by insurance or it can be used as a tax deduction.

    When my mother had a MS attack, her balance and coordination was not good so I got her a shower seat. I was concerned that she would slip and hurt herself.

    I got the shower seat at Walmart.

    bend your head over in the small sink and use a bucket etc to wet our hair and to rinse it.
