    I shower every day, sometimes twice if I've done a lot of physical activity, I wash my hair every other day, sometimes every two days in the winter when it's not getting icky from extra sweat, I wash my face once a day to minimize drying it too much.

    I am not worthy of my apartments hot water.

    It is ridiculously scalding hot.

    I tend to take showers that are merely comfortably hot.

    Anyone every had to take a cold shower? In an outdoor shower? When it's freezing outside?

    That will teach you to conserve water.

    #2, warm but not burning off my skin. I could stand under that for hours on end.

    I don't know what's wrong with you filthy pigs, but I live in my shower. I have a waterproof computer in there, a garbage disposal, etc. I only ever emerge to resupply.

    So on the nature of showers, do you enjoy:

    1 - ) Hot Showers, tons of steam and red skin
    2 - ) Warm Showers, some steam not burning your skin off
    3 - ) Luke Warm Showers, I would guess this is what getting peed on feels like
    4 - ) Room Temperature
    5 - ) Cold Showers, insert witty comment here.


    Me personally, I like 1. And the more water pressure the better.

    Sadly enough the best shower I've ever used was in my college dormitory. Those things were like a searing hot sand-blaster and I loved every minute of it.


    Usually always #1. I start out fairly hot so I don't burn the shit out of my self when I first get in, then ease it into being more and more hot until the Hot Water knob can't go any farther. If it's really hot out and I'm sweating, I go to #2 or 3. Also...sandblaster sounds like a pretty accurate description of how I like my water pressure :P

    I shower as often as my skin allows it, maybe once a day if I'm feeling particularly good, but usually every second day. I don't really develop body odor until three or four days without shower(camping, found out that I didn't get stinky nearly as quickly as the other people I was with). The thing about living in cold and dry climate is that the skin dries quickly, and starts flaking off and cracking and whatnot. Then again, I have a condition means my skin gets dry very easily, so I kinda have to avoid showering more than once every one or two days.

    Last time I actually bathed was last winter, but it might count more as swimming. This kind of thing(generic wikipedia photo): 800px-Icehole_Jurmala_Latvia.jpg

    I'm a number 1) as well

    I think I might even be a little sadistic, I love burning hot baths where your skin feels tight as fuck afterwards.

    Only problem with it is you feel light headed as fuck if you try to be intimate in the shower...

    Cold showers are great in summer

    Hot showers are magic in winter, until you get out.

    Usually #2. Unless I've been outside working/lawn-mowing, then something between #4 and #5 for a while...until I decide it's time for hot water. haha

    If I don't shower in the morning, I feel disgusting for the rest of the day. Even if no one else can tell, it bothers me. Then again, I also can't wear most articles of clothing more than once without washing them, regardless of whether or not there's any smell.

    I'm a bit OCD about cleanliness though, so I realize that, at least with certain types of clothing, this may not be the norm.

    I normally go with #2. If I'm taking a long, luxurious shower I'll move it up to #1 as I acclimate.

    Is it true that if I dont wash my hair for a while my scalp will back off the oils? How long?

    What happens when I wash it? It falls back into that old game?

    I often jam the heat up as high as it will go, but that's not terribly hot so I'd say maybe #2 most of the time. In the summer, I will sometimes slowly bring the temperature down afterwards, just before I get out, to leave myself feeling nice and cool. I just cannot start a shower at a low temperature, even when it's hot out; I spent a few weeks digging at a archaeological site in hot weather and despite being sweaty as heck nobody wanted to immediately start into the showers if the heater wasn't working!

    But I don't mind, as long as there's a bed beneath the stars that shine,
    I'll be fine, just give me a minute, a man's got a limit, I can't get a life if my heart's not in it.

    oh god the frigid needly testicle-frosting chill

    I shower at least once every day on the grounds that I live in Texas and am hairy as 70s porn hell

    also I have nearly spiritual positive associations with clean water

    I've heard this works for people and I've seen the results of people who claim they don't ever wash their hair, but one summer when I was a camp counselor a bunch of the staff tried this for about a month. We swam every day with our kids but only showered every 3-4 days and never used shampoo in our hair.

    For the 5 of us who tried this, after a month all of us still had gross, oily hair.

    Also I find that if I don't shampoo my hair my scalp gets really itchy, but I have like, medically bad dandruff so YMMV.

    55 degrees C is pretty much the perfect water temperature for a shower. I guess I could run it up another few degrees, but at that temperature it's more about water pressure.

    It totally depends on your, uh, hair/scalp type. You won't know until you try it. It took me a week of really greasy hair and then it pretty much settled into a really nice softness.

    Either you are the villain from The World Is Not Enough or that is a typo.
