Knotty-maddy, thanks for tip with the dryer!!

Curlymocahgirl - first, I love your username. regarding the water, if I go back too far so the spray is up toward the front of my head, yes, it will run into my face. but for the most part, I don't have a problem. Depending on how tall a person is relative to the shower head height, I suppose it could be more of a problem...
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
