Do you wash your hair or body first while taking a shower/bath?

Or any other different way..

I wash my hair first, and then my body.
My fiance told me that that's dumb and i'm suppose to wash my body first! lol.
Most people I've asked they said they wash their hair first.


Usually my routine is;
Hair
Body
Shave whatever needs to be shaved!
& wash my face.

And on rare occasions i'll brush my teeth in the shower at the end too haha, but I haven't done that for awhile.

I shave everything first, then hair, then body last. If you wash your body first then the shampoo clogs up your pores.

I didn't know it mattered. I think I do hair first, but not always. Shampoo can be used as soap sometimes, and may just make you more "clean" if it runs down. I know that sounds bad, but a lot of the ingredients are the same as "body wash", except watered down, in many cases...

I only shampoo 3 times a week but when I do I usually shampoo first. Then I put conditioner in. While the conditioner is in I wash my body, shave, and wash my face. I also don't soap everything everyday. I just soap up the important areas: armpits, crotch/***, feet, and face. I've heard that it's best to leave the conditioner in for a few minutes. Not sure if that is really true or not.

It doesn't make sense to me to wash your body before washing your hair. I always have shed hairs on my shoulders and back after washing my hair.

Shave before getting in at sink (if necessary)
Wash hair
Body
Dry off in shower to minimize the cold sting of stepping out...

I leave conditioner in too. I wish I could get by with washing my hair three times a week! lol. My hair is so fine and thin my hair looks really greasy after less than 24 hours. But if i'm not going anywhere, I don't really worry about it. lol

I have long hair that takes forever to dry so I usually try not to get it wet in the shower and just wash it on a different occasion.

I shave first and then usually wash my body and then hair.
I only wash my hair every other day though. It's so thick and actually gets oily more often if I wash it every day.

Hair first. I have an OCD thing about my hair. Need to wash it everyday otherwise it gets itchy.. So I wash my hair first, because it makes me feel better.

Hair first, because it's the most work.
