    Default What's in your shower?

    I've seen a number of posters here commenting on how many different products they have in their shower and bathroom, which frankly just baffles me. I have a pretty small over-the-showerhead rack thing which fits just about everything I ever use. So I'm wondering: what do you happen to have in there? do you take up an absolute minimum of space, or do you use every free ledge in sight and then some? are all of the products yours, or do you share with someone else?

    As for myself, I have:
    • A bottle of V05 Strawberries & Cream Conditioner - for CO-washing
    • A bottle of Suave Naturals Rosemary Mint shampoo - It's not SLS-free, but it smells good and I only use it when I absolutely have to
    • A bottle of ACV rinse - and this may be taken out, I'm giving it another week or two to be certain, but I think I do better without it
    • A tub of coconut oil - because it makes my hair soft and shiny and mmmmm
    • A tub of Garnier Fructis deep conditioning treatment - it's 'coney, and I use it for special occasions when I need my hair to pretend to play nice for a little while
    • A bottle of Suave Naturals exfoliating apricot body wash that I got because of my peeling sunburn, and continue to use because it smells so darn good
    • Three bars of soap - one which is mint-scented and basically disintegrated which I should really throw out but I'm a bit of a pack-rat, one is a face soap, and one is a bar of heavy-duty scent-killing soap because I run and sweat a lot
    • A razor, because I'm female and society says I should shave my legs and underarms, at least during the summer when other people can see them, and I'm not quite rebellious enough to forgo doing that
    • A poof thing to wash with
    • A ponytail holder that really shouldn't be there.

    Outside the shower, I have a bottle of Aveda Brilliant hairspray for special occasions, a bottle of hand soap, and another bar of face soap. Plus two extra bottles of the same conditioner because I don't go shopping very often.

    Though of course, when I think about it, it's both less and more than I used to have. I cleaned out all my old 'coney conditioners and gave them to my sister to share with her swimming friends. Most of them were never opened, but because my mom shopped at Sam's Club, I had used up the shampoos that they had been attached to. I definitely have more different products in the shower now, but less outside it (no more gel, less hairspray, no 'shine serums' and the like, etc.). But on the other hand, most of the time when I'm washing, I only use two products- the conditioner, and soap for the rest of me. If it's right before I go to bed, I'll wash my face in the shower as well.

    To me, what I have feels like a lot. The rack in my shower is basically full, but I do know that every one of those items serves a purpose. But compared to some people, the 'product-junkies', I know that I haven't got much at all. Not that it's a bad thing to have a lot of different products, I'm just very much a fan of keeping things as simple as possible. If you were to remove all of the musical instruments, between my room and bathroom at home, I would have four pieces of furniture. Simple, to me, is very good.

    But that's not the case for everyone.

    So share your 'collection', so to speak, with the world.

    I literally have a collection of my own hair on the side of the shower.

    Hah, I get that sometimes, too, but I try to keep it clean. I'm just glad that my drain has a little net-like covering thing, so I get clogs every time I shower, but it's easy enough to just grab the collected hairs and watch it all drain away just fine. Plus, my bathroom gets rather dark because the lighting is just old and inadequate, and if I'm not careful, the little clumps of hair look like cockroaches and I'll freak out a bit when I see them.

    Okay, more than a bit.

    And I technically share a bathroom with my sister, but the only thing she does in there is use the facilities and brush her teeth. She showers after swim practice over at the natatorium, so I don't think she's actually showered at home in a couple of years, and she's not quite old enough to start flooding the place with makeup yet, for which I'm thankful.

    Well, in my shower, product-wise, I have:

    Suave Naturals Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner (one bottle of each.)
    VO5 Vanilla Mint Tea Conditioner (one bottle)
    Razor
    One can of Shaving Cream
    One bar of Ivory Soap
    A Claw Clip (to hold hair up and out of the way when I CO)

    trust me, that is scaled down from what I use to be like. I am trying to simplify my life, in every aspect, including the shower.

    Soap, razor, shampoo, conditioner. I may put a cup of ACV and water on the edge of the tub just before I use it. Possibly have a spare bar of soap waiting for the current one to run out, but that's it. I have no room in the shower for anything else.

    Goal: grow out ponytail damage, improve texture and shine, and maybe grow to tailbone length
