Tessie Tries the No Rinse Shampoo Cap

I made this video because this (like the sensory clippers I talked about last week) is one of those things that I wish I had known about years earlier.  It has made possible what years of therapy and OT couldn't quite do.  Tessie demonstrated how they work (even though I don't use them with her normally) because I knew Maggie wouldn't love demonstrating them and she needed her hair washed anyways and she's about as big a fan of that as her big sister is, although for now that is still manageable without caps!


  1. LOL, apparently this dislike of hairwashing is common with autism? My 19 yo daughter has always hated getting her hair washed... still does.... although thankfully she is somewhat better about it. While she doesn't mind in the least if it is dirty and greasy, she is grudgingly accepting that fact that others do and it must be cleaned on a semi-regular basis. I'm happy with clean! I remember reading at somepoint that many people on the spectrum tend to have an "out of sight, out of mind" thing, and will easily forget to wash/clean/brush the back of their heads. That is SO my daughter!

  2. Thank you so much for posting about these. I am going to get some for my sister. She doesn't have autism but is unable to sit up on her own, and these would make washing her hair in between baths much easier.


I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
