Shower Essentials/Routine

Ok let's talk showers. I obviously shower to wash my body everyday (sometimes multiple times, depending on my workout/dance schedule), but I don't wash my hair everyday. I've repeatedly read that washing your hair daily is actually not great for your hair (it produces excess oils, can slow hair growth, etc), so I've been trying to limit washing my hair to every other day. Today I thought I would share a few of my shower essentials/routine with you guys!

When I first jump in the shower, the first product I reach for is the Pantene Smooth and Sleek Shampoo. I talk about why I'm obsessed with it here, but trust me I love it.

Then I use the Pantene Smooth and Sleek Conditioner. I apply this product to my hair and then let it sit for a few minutes while I wash my body/face etc.

If I'm showering in the morning, I use the Soap and Glory Breakfast Scrub. This is a great exfoliator, smells delicious, and leaves my skin feeling smooth + polished.

Next, I use whatever body wash happens to be in my shower. I'm not usually picky about body washes, I just pick up whatever's on sale. But, if I had to choose, the Lush Woosh shower gel is fabulous and smells amazing, and otherwise I usually just go for anything citrus-y.

If I'm shaving my legs, I always use the classic Venus Sensitive Razors. This is probably not great, but I almost never use shaving gel/cream, I find it a bit unnecessary and idk, I just don't usually use it.

If I have the time/am having a pamper day, I will use the Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic face Rejuvenator. I wrote about this in my favorites, and it is fantastic. It brightens and cleanses my skin, and helps it look its absolute best.

Then I rinse out the conditioner in my hair. My hair always feels smoother when I let the conditioner sit for a bit.

When I get out of the shower, I dry off for a minute and then use a moisturizer/body butter. I've been using random Bath and Body Works or The Body Shop ones, and again I definitely prefer citrus scents.

After, I get changed and then brush my hair. I will sometimes use some sort of hair serum to help tame frizziness. I don't like to use extra oils every day, but OMG I am completely in love with the Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum, it works wonders.

And there you have i, my complete shower routine! It does change from day to day depending on how much time I have or what new products I'm testing out, but this these are some of my top products and what I'm using at the moment. Comment down below any of your favorites, I'd love to hear what you guys use!

  1. Right now I'm using a random shampoo from the drugstore, but my all time favourite shampoo is the Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Special Shampoo (it's a little pricey so I don't get it very often). For face wash I've started using Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser after trying harsher acne products for SO long. Ever since I switched, my skin has looked so much better! I use that cleanser with my Vanity Planet Ultimate Skin Spa System brush, which is another great product.
