4Yr Old HATES Rinsing Shampoo Out of Her Hair and Screams the Whole Time

My 4 yr old hates washing her hair, actually she hates having it rinsed out. She HATES getting the water in her ears most of all (I am the same way). She used to plug her ears and look up so I could rinse it with the showerhead or a measuring cup, but now she just cries and says 'wait i'm not ready' and screams the entire time I rinse it and will try to pull away (which could make her slip in the tub). She has long hair and I am tempted to cut it short just to avoid this. Any ideas to make it easier?

And how does one get on toys for tots?

We have child-proofed our house to the max so she stays safe throughout the day, but she has to watch channel 2 all day since I'm in bed most of the time. We can't afford day-care since I am unable to work and all grandparents are elderly and unable to help out. We already have to rely on others for housekeeping...
