    Ashley Judd has asked her sister to wash her hair for her as she recovers from shattering her leg

    The 52-year-old actress suffered a horrific fall in the Congo last month which left her limb broken in four places and, as she heals, the 'Missing' star has asked her sibling Wynonna Judd to give her locks a much-needed shampoo and rinse


    Country music star Wynonna told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: "I was looking up how to wash hair for someone who's lying down in bed because she texted me, 'Can you wash my hair?'"

    The country singer continued: "Therein lies the job of a big sister right there.

    "She said, 'I have a request. Can you wash my hair?' I said, 'Sure', so I'm looking up ways to wash someone's hair lying down."

    The 56-year-old singer revealed that she wept when saw Ashley for the first time since her accident and is "still processing" what happened.

    The 'Divergent' actress almost lost her leg in the accident and she had to make an arduous 55-hour trip from the Congo to a hospital in South Africa to get emergency medical treatment.

    In an Instagram post, she said: "Friends. Without my Congolese brothers and sisters, my internal bleeding would have likely killed me, and I would have lost my leg. I wake up weeping in gratitude, deeply moved by each person who contributed something life giving and spirit salving during my gruelling 55 hour odyssey. (sic)”

    Ashley went on to thank each of the people involved in getting her the help she needed, including a man she named “Papa Jean”, who “manipulated and adjusted [her] broken bones” so that she could be transported safely.

    She said: "Papa Jean: it took 5 hours, but eventually he found me, wretched and wild on the ground, and calmly assessed my broken leg. He told me what he had to do. I bit a stick. I held onto Maud.

    "And Papa Jean, with certainty began to manipulate and adjust my broken bones back into something like a position I could be transported in, while I screamed and writhed. How he did that so methodically while I was like an animal is beyond me. He saved me. & he had to do this twice! (sic)"
