We understand how important it is to keep your hair styling after a nuclear bomb went off, but, according to the US government, you should do it without using your beloved conditioner.
No, this is not a joke.
You all know the Ready Campaign, right? No? Well, OK. Launched by The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Ready is a national public service advertising (PSA) campaign designed to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies including natural and man-made disasters. In their website, www.ready.gov, you’ll find information on how to prevent home fires, how to be prepared for flooding, earthquakes, hurricanes, chemical threats, cyber attacks, you name it. It’s all in there. One of them, is Nuclear Blast. (the article continues after the ad)
In the Nuclear Blast page there are guidelines for what to do (and what not to do) in the event of a nuclear explosion. And it’s one of those “not-to-do’s” that caught our eye: “Wash your hair with shampoo or soap and water. Do not use conditioner in your hair because it will bind radioactive material to your hair, keeping it from rinsing out easily.”
I can’t be the only one who finds this extraordinary ridiculous, right?!
