Anyway, I'm really happy with the shape of my last cut. So, because of that, I'm hoping to wear it down a lot. But the problem is I'm a night showerer and by the next morning, it doesn't sit right (it gets creases and loses all volume and can't be fluffed up with products).
(And no, I don't want to switch off of night showering. I have some weird germ issues with getting into bed when I'm not clean. But that's a whole other post...)
So! I've come up with a new plan that has been working great! I do a "rinse" shower at night - this is my term for when I completely shower, but don't wash my hair. And then in the morning, I lean over the faucet in the shower and wash my hair. Both take substantially less time than if I do a full-on shower (since, when taking a "normal" shower, I tend to stand in there and let the hot water run over me for longer than the average person, just to relax a little). And another great benefit is that my skin looks good when it's time to leave the house. I have super dry skin, so especially in winter, after I take a full on shower, it gets really red and blotchy and doesn't die down for a couple of hours.
I'm wondering if this will be good, too, for the first month or so of baby's life? It seems like Jonathan could watch the child while I do a rinse at night, and then at some point during the day, I'd be able to bring the baby into the bathroom with me while I spend 3 minutes washing my hair.
