#FightTheFrizz | My Realistic Shower Routine

Hey my loves,

I thought I'd talk to you about something I'm sure you've all been dying to know: my shower routine.

(We'll call this segment "Behind the Curtain"... get it?)

I wish I could say that my shower and hair washing routine is as glamorous and effortless as the adverts you see on television. Sadly it's just not the case though - What with all the rogue shampoo droplets that make a b-line for my poor, poor eyeballs - as I'm far too clumsy/lazy/easily distracted for that. Nope, mine consists of a lot more procrastinating and singing for starters! But more on that later; first I'll talk you through a few products I've been loving recently!

1. John Frieda Frizz Ease Extra Strength Serum
2. John Frieda Frizz Ease Forever Smooth Shampoo
3. John Frieda Frizz Ease Forever Smooth Conditioner
4. Anatomicals More Hula For Your Moolah Body Butter
5. Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliate Scrub

These John Frieda beauties have been saving me from the inevitable (or so I thought) frizz that usually comes with drizzly Autumn weather. Mum told me I was a drama queen when, after my first use of these three from the Frizz Free range, I proclaimed my hair had never been smoother. She then ate her words when she uttered the exact same thing after washing her hair with them a couple of days later!! I just love being right. The scent of the conditioner is so luxurious and reminds me of one I used to have by James Brown (which wasn't worth the price tag FYI) so I'm really happy to have this one in my life now! The serum does an amazing job of keeping my flyaways, well away, whether I blow dry my hair after, or just sleep on it!

The Nip + Fab Glycolic Scrub is my favourite face and body scrub when I need waking up, plus I do feel like it helps brighten my complexion! Finally I love slathering my body head to toe in the More Hula for Your Moolah body butter from Anatomicals, because quite frankly who doesn't want to smell like a giant coconut?

Onto the Showertime Routine: Narrated by a LOT of gifs.

8.45PM: Decides to wash hair. (Gal, you know it's time)

 8.46PM: Loads up Netflix on the laptop and begins to watch Power. (Cause that programme leaves you on a cliffhanger EVERY TIME!)

 10.00PM: Hears mum shouting because I've yet to wash my hair and the hot water's going to run out soon.

10.01PM: Tiptoes out of my bedroom, Mission Impossible style, and makes a run for the shower to pretend I was already in there.

10.03PM: Turns on shower and begins to wash hair (Blissfully unaware that in my mad dash to the bathroom, I forgot to take off my eyeliner. That'll haunt me.)

 10.08PM: DISASTER STRIKES! Shampoo gets into my eye and mixes with the eyeliner I forgot to take off (Told you it would haunt me)

10.10PM: Begins to shed countless tears at the pain, and questions whether life will ever be the same again. OH THE PAIN!!!!

(The following gif is a metaphor for how my eyes feel in this moment)

 10.15PM: Starts singing Disney songs at the top of my voice. Up first is Beauty and the Beast.

10.25PM: Still singing Disney songs without a care in the world...

10.33PM: About to go for the high note in 'Part of Your World' when I hear a sudden sound outside the shower. (And then every horror movie shower scene fills my imagination. PANICPANICPANIC)

10.35PM: It suddenly gets very cold and my fingers are resembling those of an 80 year old.. (Time to get out now methinks)

 10:36PM: Does the "I'm freakin freezing" dance around the room until I find warm clothes.

10:45PM: Blow dries hair (but actually spend the majority of the time using hair drier as a body heater and/or microphone)

11PM: Walks around touching my hair every 3.7 seconds cause it SO DAMN SOFT. (Shame I'm only going to sleep after all that faff...)
