Was I baptized?

I was just baptized as an adult during the Easter Vigil. My concern is that the water only got on my hair and not on any part of my skin. It concerns me because I feel as though I was not really baptized. Please advise.

As long as the water was poured over your head and the correct formula was used (“I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit”), you were baptized. Please try not to worry about it any further.
