    You know how on most shampoo bottles, it gives the directions "lather, rinse, repeat"? Well, the new shampoo I got just says "lather, rinse and get on with your day". It got me thinking though,. that I never actually repeated in the first place - nor did anyone else I asked. Thus this poll; do you repeat?

    Only if I spent some time (days/weeks) away from civilization and my hair is all muddy and sandy.

    I just lather, leave it on for 10-15 minutes while I soap my body, rinse, and get on with the rest of my day.

    It takes you 15 minutes to rub soap on your body?

    Yes, I usually use a little shampoo two or three times; I find that my hair becomes softer and more manageable than if I shampoo and rinse only once.

    Only if I've gone more than a day without washing it. Other than that I don't see how someone with hair past their shoulders would have time to wash it more than once.

    I usually just shampoo once. The only occasions I'll shampoo more than once is if my hair is really gross - swimming, camping, etc.

    Every time I shower, I wash my hair 4 times with hand soap to properly clean it.

    no, I only lather and rinse once. But, if people report that their hair gets softer, then maybe I'll start shampooing twice or thrice.

    Once, unless my hair is dirty enough that it needs more.

    Edit: I only use it once, not repeat once.

    Try conditioner instead. Separate conditioner, not the 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner stuff.

    If I felt that it's not clean enough. Which means rarely.

    What would you rather do:
    A) Not use conditioner
    B) Double your shower time
    C) Use 2-in-1 conditioner

    The choice is clear

    I don't understand what conditioner is supposed to do, but I use a 2-in-1 thing.

    Why would I repeat, though? Do you repeat when you wash your hands? No, you wash 'em once and be done with it!

    Yeah? I've never had those, except *maybe* when I had shoulder-length hair back in highschool and University.

    I file conditioner under "things people want you to buy and use that you don't actually need"

    It's quite helpful if you have thick hair.

    Unfortunately most shampoo directions create an infinite loop, so I'm still washing my hair as I type.

    My showers would be rather long even without conditioner - I've never been a quick showerer. :lol: And I've found 2-in-1 shampoo/conditionesr aren't as good as separates.

    Plus I leave the conditioner in while doing other things (washing the rest of me, etc) and it's quite useful in keeping water from running out of my hair and into my eyes anytime I lean forward.

    I find the conditioner makes my hair softer and nicer-feeling in general. And it gives my hair a bit more of a shine so it doesn't look dull.

    I've never heard of anyone actually repeat, just a waste of shampoo, even if I'm not paying for it.....(friend works at hotel gives me free shampoo ^^)
