According to Lush (via the BBC) the best place to wash your hair is in Scotland.
Well no shit sherlock.
When I lived in Glasgow I never ever used conditioner, and my hair was always shiny and in good condition. Since moving down to London I find I have to use conditioner every time I wash my hair, otherwise I look like something that’s been dragged through a hedge backwards.
Still, it looks like Lush have the right idea – regional shampoos, rather than just by hair type. Shiny clean hair for all!
reminded me of a conversation many years ago when I clumsily tried to explain to a group of English friends that my hair was much nicer when I washed it at my parents’ home (in Wales). The water feels “wetter” (cue much hilarity), it absorbs into your skin and hair in a way that English hard water never does. In a very hard water area the water can almost bounce off your skin.
I’d never heard of limescale until I moved to England. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I opened a kettle for the first time. ‘Course now I know all about lovely water filters so it’s rarely an issue.
So now it’s official. And I still love washing my hair in Wales.
