Shower power, or researching halachah *here*??!

No, my blog is most definitely not a good place to look up rulings regarding halachah/Jewish religious law.

Except when I link to someone else.

Just before Pesach, I checked my own blog, of all places, to find out whether one is permitted to shampoo one's hair on a Yom Tov/major holiday. I remembered linking to a ruling that one is permitted to take a hot-water shower on a Yom Tov. But as for the shampoo, the answer is no, because one is not permitted to squeeze a liquid out of anything, including one's hair. See this post, toward the end.
