I had older relatives who referred to washing their heads rather than washing their hair. It hints that they didn't wash the length, doesn't it?

In India hair is traditionally washed using a bucket of water and a mug to pur the water over the head and hair. This is referred to as a headbath. Of course, now that many people have modern showers they also call washing their hair under the shower a headbath.
