    From what I've seen through your window, that's not all you're doing in there.

    By the way, you're going to run out of conditioner like that.

    If I just came back from a heavy tennis match, I always shampoo first, then soap afterwards. The shampoo starts from my head, so it won't be a problem if I soap afterwards. (It's the best of both worlds, I guess.) I never-not shampoo anyway, so it really doesn't make a difference for me. Not sure about others' vices.

    i body wash it up then rinse hair then shampoo my hair and face since the face has the exact same epithealal cells at the scalp.

    I'd like to ask a serious question.
    Do people in the US use shampoo everyday? or even almost everyday ?

    You're not from the US. That explains why you did not get the A-Team reference in Word Association.

    I am American male with short hair. I do not shampoo every day. That cannot be healthy (natural oils and stuff). I use soap every day on my body, often twice. I brush my teeth 2 to 3 times a day. But shampoo is not nearly as necessary, I think.
    I use a tiny bit of shampoo every other day. Usually a good rinse is sufficient unless I've been really sweating.

    I always shampoo after I've been someplace with cigarette/cigar smoke or a firepit.

    Conditioner, I feel is a good-smelling way to resore some of the oils to the hair and the scalp. But shampoo? I think that's more marketing than necessity.

    Oh, and speaking of marketing, that whole rinse and repeat thing was a great way to boost shampoo sales.

    In front of my computer, obviously
    Yes, rinse and repeat is a way to increase sales and I think most of the good brands have stopped printing that.

    I can't put conditioner on my scalp, the type that I use for my very dry hair is far too thick for my moderately oily scalp. People with very short, normal hair are lucky, they can use those 2 in 1 shampoos like Pert and save money on all the other stuff.

    People with hair at all are lucky.

    Thank a lot , slice.
    I live in a coastal area far away from the US. We use Tide instead of shampoo. (failed attempt at humor).

    Stormy, loved your line - "bathing causes autism". I don't know why but just loved it.
