When I was in Shanghai in 2002, I indulged in quite a few dry washes. A dry wash is when a hair dresser washes your hair by squirting water on your head with a little water bottle and slowly massages the shampoo into your hair. It should be a slow and lingering experience. I remembered getting massaged for 30-45 minutes and it costing hardly anything. I had told Mr. Selfish about these infamous dry washes on several occasions, so I wanted to introduce him to it while we were in Shanghai.
My dry wash cost 30 yuan and was a little shorter than I had remembered at about 20 minutes. By the time I was done, Mr. Selfish was already waiting for me. Apparently, his dry wash hadn’t been nearly as long as mine and was hardly slow or lingering. Oh well, I still enjoyed myself.
