Plain ol' shampoo simply won't do. What you need is a very good hair conditioner! Lots and lots of it.
Why? Because the water in Agra is rather hard (high mineral content). I was there last week, and only realised the problem when my hair stood up like the proverbial porcupine's quills when I tried to dry it. It's like washing it in sea-salt.
So all you women (and men) - unless you're staying in a fancy-schmancy hotel, take that bottle of conditioner along, and make the most of your crowning glory.
