What I could possibly be doing in the shower for so long…

When it’s time for my shower, I make sure the water is at a perfect temperature and then I send it on its way to the shower head. Once it starts raining down, I undress and step in.

Once I step into the shower: I stand with my back to the shower head and let the water soak all of my hair which takes around 5-7m because my hair is so long and there’s a LOT of it.

I tousle it a bit.

I only wash my hair with shampoo and conditioner once or twice a week because (my hairdresser told me) that my hair creates enough of its own natural oils that I don’t need to add so much more with shampoos and conditioners. My hair was oily all the time until I received and followed that advice.

If it was a hair washing day, that’s the first thing I’d do after I make sure all of my hair has gotten completely drenched. Shampoo then conditioner. It takes around 10-15m to get all the shampoo and conditioner through and washed out of my hair.

Once my hair is all nice and clean, I brush my teeth.

After my breath has been freshened, I shave my legs, my hoo-ha (this one I do only every other day to avoid razor bumps), and my armpits.

I turn towards the shower head and let the warm water run down and in between my private crevices.

Once my body is bald, I scrub every inch of it (besides that certain private crevice because if you didn’t know: you should not put soap in there) with body wash. And then rinse it all off and turn the water off and wrap myself up with a soft, dry towel.

  1. Your hoo-ha haha. I only shave mine every other day as well (same with my armpits), but sometimes I still get razor bumps here and there. I put witch hazel on it, and it seems to help some. I’m not sure why it takes me so darn long in the shower, but I always tell myself I won’t be more than 15 minutes. Yet I always end up in there for 30, and then I’m really rushing for work. πŸ˜› I have long hair too, so it does take a little while to wash that. I don’t just wash with soap either. I also use body scrubs and cleanse my face as well, so of course all that takes more time.

    1. I always get razor bumps on my armpits but idk, I feel it’s better than dark short stubby hairs there, lol. I’ve never heard of witch hazel but I’ll def look into it! I always tell myself I’m gonna take a “quick” shower but it never is. πŸ˜†

  2. Don’t feel bad, I take awhile in the showers some days πŸ˜‚ I used to be worse as a kid. My hair’s so thin, I have to wash it every other day at most. I’ll slack off on shaving if I have no reason to πŸ˜‚ the weather is getting colder now so I’ve found myself not shaving my legs as often

    1. My hair is starting to get really thin too because I hate brushing it so much sometimes I let it get so tangled that the only way to untangle it is pull it out 😭

      If I had a different occupation I wouldn’t shave my legs anymore either 😭 lol

      1. Ohh no! Haha I do get that though! I hate brushing mine because it always gets tangled. But even though I hate it, I’m continuously brushing it. You have much thicker hair it sounds like, so your knots are probably much worse, too 😭

        And I gotcha! πŸ˜‚ yeah it probably wouldn’t be the best idea for you to stop. I went from shaving every two days in the summer to shaving once a week and hiding my legs under jeans or leggings lol

          1. Haha my hair is paper thin, so unless you’re hair is that bad, it’s still thicker than mine so that’s something for you! πŸ˜‚ and I can imagine! I hate knotty hair, it hurts and then you’re just ripping hair out 😭

            Haha shaving sucks! Mostly because every time I shave I feel like I have to again not even a day later. It’s ridiculous πŸ˜‚

  3. I try not to take too long in the shower. I’ve taken to washing my hair only once or twice a week too (bless dry shampoo) but I take longer showers when I wash it. Only thing I do differently is that I shave and wash my body while the conditioner is working on my hair. What do you shave with? I mean, shaving cream? I use hair conditioner and it works wonders. I have bought this new cream to try down there, to see if it’s better than a razor. I love the idea of applying a product, waiting 5 minutes and being hairless after. I bought this one because it says it is ideal for your lady bits and armpits. I’ll try it out today or tomorrow, probably.

    1. I should start doing other stuff in the shower while my shampoo washes out…that’s a good idea lol.

      To be honest, I don’t use any cream. I just shave in the shower with the water. I def get razor bumps but not too many–I tried coconut oil and regular shaving cream and it seemed I got more razor bumps but my skin was softer. Maybe I’m going to try hair conditioner?? I’ve never heard of anyone doing that! Thanks for the suggestion!!!

      I’m curious to know how the product worked out for you!! I one time tried Nair and I hated the smell of it and my skin started to burn so I rubbed it off before I was supposed to, that was when I first started growing hair on my legs though lol, I haven’t tried it since.
