When washing your hair, prevent excess water from entering your ear by holding your head forward with your chin on your chest; this will ensure minimal water entering your ear.

If you suffer from regular ear infections, best would be not to wash your hair in the shower but rather over a sink or bathtub.

Folding the shell of your ear over the canal when rinsing will also prevent water entering the canal.
