Hair Care During Nuclear Attack

Prompted by the recent threats from North Korea, Guam's Office of Civil Defense recently issued guidelines on what people should do in the event of a nuclear emergency. It included the advice that you should wash your hair with shampoo or soap. However, you shouldn't use conditioner "because it will bind radioactive material to your hair."

Interesting and potentially useful to know.

I'm gonna suggest not using sunscreen like armor for the same reason. Save your eclipse glasses for looking at the mushroom clouds.

Doesn't every girl want that afterglow in their hair?

Rats. I wanted my hair to be snag-free right before it catches fire.

That is, if you don't lose it all first...
