Shampoo with One Hand

How can I shampoo with one hand? Should I use a special shampoo dispenser?

If you have limited use of one hand, you may find yourself juggling shampoo bottles in the shower. One option is to install a special shampoo or conditioner dispenser, but this doesn’t work if you’re on vacation or a sleep over. It’s possible to learn to shampoo with one hand.

  1. Buy shampoo that comes in a squirt bottle so you can control how much comes out of the bottle.
  2. Open lid.
  3. Squirt shampoo on the top of your affected hand or on your leg if in a bath tub. You could even use the side of the tub.
  4. Scoop up the shampoo with your unaffected hand and place it on your head.
