This inflatable, portable hair washing tool makes assisted hair washing in bed SO much easier. There are two inflatable chambers, both of which comfortably cradle your neck and prevent any water from splashing out. It takes a little while to figure out the technique that works for you, but it soon became quicker and easier to use. We also leave mine permanently inflated, so we only have to grab a towel, shampoo, and a couple of jugs of warm water to wash my hair! Once finished, the drain outlet allows for easy emptying and cleaning.

This product has been a huge help, especially whilst living in a property that isn’t entirely accessible, as my carer can wash my hair whilst I lie down in bed. It’s especially helpful on days when I simply do not have the spoons to use a regular bath or shower, even with assistance. I also feel it could be useful to keep in my hospital bag, as it is much easier than a regular “bed bath” and can be packed away into a small bag.
It is honestly ideal for anyone with reduced mobility! Particularly when travelling, camping, or if you aren’t too sure about the accessibility of your accommodation. It’s also much easier for carers, as helping someone shower often results in getting wet, and a bath requires continuous bending.
