Default dunking head into sink..is it dirty?

Hi,
I've been dunking my head into my sink that is stopped up to get clumps in my hair because the shower head usually seperates my hair too much. Is this a dirty method is the sink full of cones? Should I be doing a sulfate wash because of this?

As long as you clean your sink, it should be fine.

Is that a serious question? If it is, sorry for asking.
If you clean your sink then it won't be dirty. Then if you put your head in your sink your hair won't get dirty

Hi oojack, why would your sink be full of cones?

if your sink is clean and full of clean water, then when you dunk to clump, your product will disperse a little in the large amount of water but will not redeposit gunk on your hair. If you don't clean your sink, then any disgusting gunk from spit to toothpaste etc could dissolve in the water you fill the sink with....

so, it's a good practice to clean your sink multiple times a week if not every single day...to be sure

I read an article on MSN a while back that said your kitchen sink actually has more germs than your toilet. So if you would feel comfortable dunking your head in your toilet after you scrubbed it, then by all means go ahead.
Worried about cones in your sink? I think the only cone you might find in there would be your head.

'Cones would be the least of my worries, LOL! That I haven't very recently cleaned it is one of the reasons I sometimes use a spray bottle instead of the sink.

a good way to get clumps for me is using s spray bottle i spray all over my hair till its pretty wet then scrunch a lil then air dry and it works like a charm and you really dont have to worry about making to much of a mess with water.

you can get spray bottles at walmart for 99 cent.

If your sink isn't draining properly, then you probably need to remove the drain stopper, stick a bent wire hanger down the pipe and pull up all the matted hair and gunk that has accumulated.
