You can "soap/lather up your hair" whether you use soap or shampoo. For the whole process, including rinse, you can shampoo your hair with soap or shampoo.

- A.
Can I say:

Lather your hair with shampoo and then rinse it out?

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Hi guys,
We clean our bodies. This is correct grammar, but very unidiomatic.

We wash (ourselves).
We take a shower.
We have a bath.
Maybe We wash all over.


Thanks Avangi and Clive

Sorry to interrrupt. Which of the following is correct?
After soccer practice, they went home and took [a shower/showers].
Both are OK, but I usually hear the singular term. One shower each is easily understood.

Funny thing. I believe I'd say "They all went home to take a shower," not "to take showers," but without the infinitive, I'd say, "They all went home and took showers." I'm not quite comfortable with Clive's version.

Of course if someone planted a concealed microphone, I might be heard to contradict myself.
