Another very deep question from me.. LOL But seriously, many people think a person's preference of which he'd do first in taking a bath is a reflection of his personality (I myself can't see a connection too..) So I would just want to know what you guys are doing first: shampooing or cleaning your body? Why?

I have never really thought about it but I usually wash my body first and then do my hair. Probably because my hair is long and if i wash that first and then start using body wash, it will get into my hair and make it dull again.

I usually get my hair wet first, scrub my scalp, put in conditioner and then wash my body while the conditioner sets.

I usually shampoo my hair before I start scrubbing my body.Shampooing is more time consuming and I let it sit on my scalp and hair for some time before I wash it off.So,after applying the shampoo I start scrubbing and when I am done ,I wash it off.

Like you, I also let the shampoo stay in my head for a longer time especially when it's a mentholated shampoo because it really cools the scalp! Thanks for the response!

I have fairly long hair, so I always wash it before I wash the rest of my body. If I don't get my hair wet right away, it gets really frizzy and sticky, so it's much more practical to just get it soaking wet and wash it, and then worry about getting the rest of me clean.

I have no idea why you would ask this question? Are you taking a survey or something? Anyway, I bathe first and then I shampoo my hair. The reason for this is I am about to get out of the bath, I give myself a quick towel over and then all I do is either put on my robe or my clothes, wrap a towel around my hair. It is much easier that way.

If I don't have to wash my hair, then I just scrub my boby. If I need to wash my hair, then at first I will shampoo my hair and then wash my body. As the water will drop down, so it seems it's a better way to wash.

I have always took my showers by rinsing, soaping up, rinsing again, and then after I have scrubbed my body, I wash my hair. I don't know why but this has been my routine since I was little. Then I get out of the showers and the first thing I do is wrap a towel around my hair, dry my body off, and then I put on my bra and undies, and dry my hair.

I'm in the habit of shampooing my hair first before scrubbing my body. I feel I don't get cold and chilly that way. Anyways, I also splash water in my legs and arms first just to let my body get a feel of the water's temperature. I don't use hot water in the morning, I just get it straight from the faucet. So when it's the cold 'ber' months here in the Philippines, it helps that I do it just exactly, and my body adapts just as perfectly. :)

I wash my hair first. Rinse put in conditioner. Then wash my body and then rinse my hair and body all at the same time. No particular reason for doing it just start at the top and work my way down I guess.

Hi vesuvius, I like to shampoo my hair and leave the conditioner on, then I wash my body. Being that the conditioner has been in my hair while I wash, I feel that the conditioner works better. I don't know how this reflects my personality but this is what I do. This was a good question...take care...
