long hair in public bath houses

Post by Dehitay » Thu 07.26.2007 11:32 am

This is going to be a slightly random/awkward question. My hair reaches 2 feet in length and in the process of washing it, a few strands will always break and wrap themselves around my hands. For that reason, I keep a trash bag right outside my shower because even a few strands of 2 foot long hair can start clogging up a shower drain.

I've grown curious as to what people with long hair do in public bath houses. I'm sure I'm not the only one who washes my hair to the point of breaking a few strands. Do they have waste baskets in the cleaning section? I could see drains clogging quickly on the female side.

「strand」って何ですか? 髪の毛をしばるヒモ?

銭湯の男性用浴場にも脱衣所にもゴミ箱(ゴミ入れ)はあるはずです。
排水口に髪の毛がたまったら、そこに捨てられます。

長髪の男性も銭湯や温泉を利用しますので、洗髪にも問題はないはずです。
入れ墨(刺青)をしている場合は、入浴拒否される可柏ォはありますが。

(男性で銭湯利用者の方がいたら、補足をお願いします ;) )
