Summer Green Tip
I’ve been green even before it was trendy! Someone told me a long time ago about “military showers,” which is something I do during the hot days of summer. The concept is you get yourself wet, turn the water off, continue doing your shower business [soaping, conditioner, exfoliating etc.] and then turn the water back on to rinse it all off when you’re done! I would suggest shampooing and rinsing the shampoo out before turning the water off so that you can move on to applying conditioner.
This is a great tip for the summer because
1. Think of all the water you’ll be saving – it’s good for the environment and good for your checkbook at the same time!
2. Since it’s summer and the air around you is hot, you won’t get the chills once the water is turned off. I’m even able to do a military shower at night sometimes because where I live, in the summer, it gets SOO HOT!
3. You can use this time to deep condition your hair without worrying about it being prematurely rinsed off.
