Ladies : How many times a day do you shower?

Jul!a Jul!a
Every other day for the most part, unless I've managed to get really dirty or gross feeling in the mean time.

i'll shower like twice a week, sometimes three or four times if it's summer and i'm all hot. i wash my nether regions every time i go to the potty with water and the occasional light soap for the bum like a little european, and my armpits get their rock salt treatment and/or tea tree oil when they smell. i wash my face... sometimes. and my feet if they need it.

i guess i got used to not showering much when i was traveling italy in a camper and a shower was a commodity. i got used to it, and kind of developed an aversion towards the shower, like a little kid. a dirty little hippy kid.

Every night before bed......I have 4 kids so it is easier to do it at night....

It's either once a day or every other if I haven't done much of anything. Anymore than that can actually become unhealthy.

I shower every other day. I can't not wash my hair when I take a shower and washing my hair every day dries it out a lot.

Only once.. sometimes every other day if I'm being super lazy or haven't really done anything that day.

I shower 6-7 times a week. Sometimes that's twice in one day if you count showering before I go to bed at 6am and after I get off work at 11pm. My hair stays wet FOREVER since I have so much of it.

Every other day for me, unless I've done something that caused me to become sweaty or dirty. Sometimes I'll take a bath on days I'm not showering if I need something to relax!

Every day after my work out and after I wrestle with the dog. (we walk every morning and then wrestle)

Once. I usually time it so that I wait to shower until after I've been active. If I'm spoiling myself then I might take a shower and then a bath later.

I shower a couple of times per day, depending on the day.

I shower when I first get up. I shower after we have sex (sometimes this is once, sometimes this is more). I shower after I work out and get sweaty. I usually work out once a day intensely (like a jog, or something sweaty), and I lift weights too, though I don't usually shower after the latter.

I may as well move in to my shower.

I get told how wasteful of water I am for having half an hour+ long showers, but here's the thing.

YOU shower every day, say for 10 minutes but I know my 'shower every day' friends take more like 15-20 minutes... and I know people who shower more than once a day for 5-10 minutes. I shower every few days, for half an hour. This adds up to likely as not LESS water than them.

I usually shower two, maybe three times a week. My hair is longer than my butt, and it takes a long time to wash. Now, especially in the summer, sometimes I will have disgustingly gross days at work where I come home and feel like I haven't showered in a week and then I will pop in and have a 5 minute shower right after work where I only wash my body. I find the idea of daily showers disgusting and wasteful and would have trouble living with someone who showered every day for 20 minutes... like a certain friend of mine. Drives me up the wall, especially when I get the evil eye for having a long shower.

And might I add, I don't stink, and my hair is amazing, and not dried out like the people who shower every day and sulk about their bad hair, because I'm not washing away the natural oils every day.

I of course make a bit of allowance for people with physical jobs... I understand, I really do... but the people who shower every day who are desk jockies and never do any exercise just come off as wasteful to me.

Everyone is different If I don't get at least once shower per day, my hair is really greasy and gross looking at the end of the day. I can't skip a day. Mind you, I also rarely miss a day of exercise. Some people have great hair, some people naturally sweat a lot, and some people don't. We all have different needs.

Once a day, but it used to be 2+ when I was swimming competitively and had a swim class during the day, my hair would never get dry.

I tend to shower every other day. It's healthier for your hair because your not constantly stripping the oils out of it. I do however tend to take nightly baths as the temperature drops as it helps me to sleep. There I am not so worried about the oils as I tend to put in a bath melt or milk powder to counter act the hot water effect on my skin.

I shower once every day and wash my hair every two or three. Showering multiple times a day is so wasteful and bad for your skin...

I can shower anywhere from every other day to 3-4 times a day depending on what's gone on. If I've been having lots of sex, I tend to want to hop in the shower after every couple sessions. I ride horses a lot too, so any day where the barn is involved is usually a two shower day. Then sometimes when I have absolutely nothing going on then I can usually get by with skipping a day or just doing a quick rinse sort of thing.

Once a day unless I really need another one for some reason.

Every other day, or every third day in cool weather before the heat is on. I have dry skin and dry hair, and showering more frequently makes me scaly and makes my hair shed like crazy. I dab my more sweat prone areas with a mixture of vinegar and tea tree oil to kill any bacteria, then change into fresh, clean clothes and am good.


If I've been working out, I'll take a 5-minute cool shower with tea tree oil castile soap, washing only my body and not scrubbing. I've figured out what works for me, though I've heard some people say that showering less than once a day is gross. I have friends who have to shower every day, or they become an oil slick, or friends who have to wash their faces three times a day to prevent bad breakouts... but I can actually go about four days without showering before I start getting greasy.


I do have a whirpool tub that I indulge in when I'm down or sore, but I take Japanese-style baths (clean my body completely before getting in the tub, tie my hair up out of the way). Baths are for relaxing only.

I shower once a day and it's just that a shower, with two kids I don't get teh luxery of a relaxing bath though that would be nice.

Wish there was an Other option but I shower every two to three days. It's bad on your hair and skin to wash away their natural oils so often.

Unless I just feel really really gross one day, I only shower once a day.
