    Default Hair in your laundry... and vacuum... and shower... and everywhere

    How do you manage with your shed hairs?

    I know, right? I found a hair stuck in my husband's beard last night. I also keep finding little wads of it in the shower, and I went NW/SO a month ago! I keep cleaning the shower, so how is it getting there?

    It's a dry heat, except when it isn't.

    For the shower the mesh screens that fit down into the drain are marvelous. I have not had to clean the drain in the last two years after switching to that.

    For the vacuum, a seam ripper used in sewing allows you to cut and remove the hairs on the roller without taking the blasted thing apart and with least danger to yourself.

    When the weather permits, I detangle in the garden. Birds are free to use my shed hairs and they don't end up inside. When it is too cold, hot, wet, or mosquito infested I comb inside and after every couple passes with the comb I use my free hand to check for any loose hairs sticking out the bottom and when some come away (carefully) these and any hairs caught by the comb are placed in a trash bin that lives on top of my vanity. Comb and repeat. When I am done combing I check my clothes for shed hairs, some fabrics attract them more than others. I do not have carpets so I can also do a quick sweep with my fingers of the floor around where I was standing.

    Wearing hair up or otherwise contained keeps shed from ending up in strange places quite as much.

    You are still going to find the occasional hair in an odd place, but much less so unless you wear it down frequently. In my family we tease my mom who has very thick distinctive long red hair about finding her hair in strange place. "Curiosity landed on Mars, and you know what she found? A Mama hair!"

    I feel like the longer my hair gets, the more I realize and find more sheds. I want long hair so this is the price I pay, and it's so worth it!

    I manage by keeping my hair bunned or braided all the time to contain the sheds. I have one spot in the house where I detangle, and I gather up any shed hair straight after. I also regularly inspect my clothes to pick off any strays. Even so, my hair still ends up everywhere.

    I've posted this story before...
    My former husband is a tie-dyer. His method uses many, many small stitches to create the resist. The pattern was design, stitch, soak, dye, wash, remove stitches, dry item.
    On more than one occasion we would remove the thread, pull and nothing would happen, the fabric stayed in the tight pleats.
    A second pull and we'd hear a POP and some pleats would open and we would find my shed hair in the stitches.

    My shedding is pretty confined since i comb in bed in the morning and then its put up and not touched again till i shower. I do find a few wads in the laundry that get caught up in my flece pj's and my microfiber sheets. I keep a dedicated mini trash can by the bed so the chances of missing it are reduced before that id find hairballs all over since theyd catch on socks and pant legs.
