Gonna try showering in the basement

My parents called in a plumber to come in tomorrow and see what's causing the leak in the kitchen ceiling (the bathroom is above it) and hopefully fix it. Of course, it won't be fixed tomorrow. I am assuming that tomorrow he will just take a look at what's going, assess what needs to be done, and tell us how much it will cost. In the mean time, since we cannot shower in the bathtub until the leak issue is fixed, I am gonna attempt to shower in the basement. We have a shower there. The shower just has the shower head. There is no hose. And the water doesn't come out of every hole in the shower head. Also, when you open the shower door water leaks onto the floor. Not looking forward to showering there but I guess it is better than nothing. At least I will be clean. Now my hair is a different issue. It's been over a week already since I washed it last. I need to wash it. Not sure how that's gonna go down. I have to find some way to close the drain otherwise all the hair that falls out when I wash it is gonna go down the drain and may end up clogging it. I don't want that to happen. I am wondering if putting a bathtub mat over the drain will help with that.

I washed it in the shower, placing the bathtub mat over the drain. I hope none of the hair went down the drain. I picked up a lot of it from the shower floor and the mat when I was done washing. The guy came and removed the thing from the wall and some other thingy from inside the wall and replaced them with new ones. And he installed the new shower. Everything seems ok for now with the leaking. He also fixed some other issues we had elsewhere.
