Ahhh... the shower. The only thing that makes a shower more relaxing is if there is a stemless, plastic glass, filled with wine, sitting on the ledge. Let's be real, glass isn't safe. As for showers, I have several necessary products and lots of them depend on what I need or what time of day I'm showering.
I tend to always have two different types of shampoo and conditioner, plus hair treatments. Then, I keep two body washes in the shower, one for night and the other for morning. So, let's get into it, shall we?
Love Cetaphil cleanser for the shower. It's a gentle face wash that doesn't strip my skin. I like to keep Zero Oil Cleanser at my bathroom sink, and I'm the type of person that forgets to move face wash from sink to shower, and back to sink. So, I keep one in the shower and the other at my sink.
At night, I love using Calm Your Senses body wash. It has lavender and vanilla scents for a calming, relaxing aromatherapy shower, which really helps me sleep. For other showers, I use the Daily Moisturizing Body Wash. It helps replenish skin with moisture and my skin always feels soft and smooth after showering.
I'm one of those types that believe hair can get used to shampoo the more you use it, so I'm constantly switching it up. I am loving the Frizz Dismiss line by Redken. It's new and it's fabulous. My hair feels so smooth and silky using this shampoo and conditioner combination. I've been using it most often when I wash my hair, but do sneak in a few washes a week with the Color Extend Magnetics shampoo and conditioner. Both are sulfate-free, so they are non-drying, but each do something a bit different. The Color Extend really does help protect my color treated hair and the Frizz Dismiss keeps me from looking like I stuck my finger in an electrical outlet when it's 1,000,000% humidity.
Lastly, hair masks. My hair tends to be oily at the roots and dry from mid-shaft down. So, I rely heavily on hair masks to whip my mane back into shape when it's feeling straw-like. I use a hair mask for two different reasons, which leads to two different masks. When my blonde is feeling brassy and my hair is dry, I'll use the Blonde Idol nourishing mask. It's a purple creme, which helps alleviate the brassy look, and it makes a huge difference. When I'm looking to pack in moisture, I can't live without the Oleo-Therapy hair treatment.
