    Default QOTD 5/28

    When do you typically get your shower in? Morning, night, while other kids nap?

    I need time to do my hair after I shower (which takes about an hour to blowdry and flat iron) so I have to do it sometime I have ample time for that. Either morning (around 8-9 am, and DD watches DS2 while I'm in there) or after the kids go to bed. I prefer not to do at night though because I hate staying up late for the sole purpose of doing my hair. Of course, having it take up my whole morning sucks too! I only shower twice a week though.

    I usually shower in the morning before my kids get up (that's often when I "normally" work out too although that hasn't happened for over a month now), but if I don't manage to do it then, I can while they watch their morning show or during naps later.

    ETA: Sandra, I feel your pain. I have atrociously thick hair that takes forever to dry. I have it shorter right now so it isn't as bad (maybe 25 minutes) but when it's long it takes FOREVER!!

    I have really really really curly hair so I have to shower before I leave the house or my hair is huge! Never at night because it'll be huge and poofy in the morning. Sometimes late afternoon if I don't need to leave the house before dinner time.

    Yep, super thick hair that needs a good 25 minute blowdry. Then flat ironing in at least 6 layers so that it isn't too poofy. But at least all that work lasts me 3-4 days!

    We have a tub right next to our shower with clear panes, so I shower while DS is in the bathtub. I am right next to him and talk to him the whole time and can see him perfectly. (Not sure what I am going to do when DD comes though)

    I chopped a lot of my hair off on Friday, so just figuring out the new routine, but so far it looks like I can air dry it or blow dry it. When it was long, I rarely took the time to do much. WOuld tie it up in a bun and let my waves dry that way.

    It's so humid in the summer her that it is hard to keep a 'style' without a ton of work.

    I wash my hair every 3 days, but will shower off more frequently.

    Yeah, I guess I shouldn't say "shower twice a week" or you will all think I'm dirty I do shower off my body a couple extra times if needed, but I only get my hair wet twice a week.

    lol! I'm sure you are far from stinky.

    I learned from a hairdresser a long time about that it wasn't good for me to wash my hair constantly because it depleted the natural oils or something.

    I shower in the morning after we have all had breakfast.
