Oranges for the tub
Washcloths! Have them at the ready. Click here to find out all the facts on why having a stack of washcloths is a good idea.
Bath Pillow! Well, duh, all Divas need to be cushioned. I am still on my quest for the perfect one…but am making due with the last one I reviewed. Read about the Bath Pillow Quest here.
Ok, so now you’ve taken about an hour assembling all this stuff and are completely exhausted- ha ha! No, it should just take you a few minutes to get it together. Now you can actually GET IN the tub! And don’t forget your Rubber Duck!
Hair Conditioner! The first thing I do when I get settled in the water is to sink under and get my hair wet. Then I goop on a giant gob of conditioner and twist my tresses to the top of my head and secure it with a hair clippy thingie. If you have long hair, you want the clip on the top of your head, mohawk style, so it doesn’t interfere with leaning back on your poofy pillow. If you have short hair, no worries.
Either I use an intensive “packet”, like Burt’s Bees Hair Repair or my usual conditioner. I’ll leave the conditioner on for the duration of the bath and then rinse it out. I’ll air dry it as much as possible before going to bed, then hit it with the blow dryer if needed. Not a good idea to go to bed with a wet head – ask your mother why.
I think that’s enough for today, stay tuned for Bath 101 – Part Tres!
