    Default proofreading

    Hi there,
    Could you proofread the following sentences?

    When I put some soap on my hair and started to wash it, the water was turned slowly and finally turned off. I had no way to wash off the soap. I used some hair gel to cover up the mess. But the hair gel mixed with the soap and gave off a bad smell.

    thanks a lot
