I shower every other day (or every other two days, like if I shower on Monday, I'll shower again on Thursday), usually before I leave to go somewhere (usually work). It really depends on how much I feel I need a shower. I wash my hair every single day, though.

My showers usually last around 10-15 minutes. I wash my hair when I get in, then my hair again, then my body, then my hair, then my face and then I get out and dry off and get dressed then go out of the bathroom until my hair dries (while drying my hair with a towel) and then I come back to style my hair when my hair is dry.

I answered 25+ minutes in the poll, but really it only takes me about 10-20 minutes to shower.I have three other people to share the shower with and so I try to conserve as much hot water as I can. I shower every other day or every other few days. I have any clothes I want to wear in the bathroom already hanging on a hanger. I like to warm up the water before going in. Once I'm in the shower I start by washing my body with soap and then wash my hair with shampoo. I like to think about stuff sometime before or during the time of washing myself which is why it usually takes a bit longer. You know, ponder things. And call me weird, but I usually walk out of the shower before turning it off. I don't know why really, maybe because I really hate those few seconds of cold or hot cold water when you turn one shower knob off. Once I'm out I dry my self off by starting with my hair and working my self down. Usually it's hair, face, chest, waist, legs and then feet. Then I put on the clothes I want to wear in the bathroom and then head out to the dining room where the hair dryer is and finish drying my hair more.

If I shower Monday morning, I'll shower again Wednesday morning. If I shower Tuesday morning, I shower again Thursday morning. Otherwise, I look disgusting.

I'm glad about these poll results and all this feedback :O I should show my dad so he can be thankful that my showers are only about 15-20min long. Some people are way longer! Though it seems the majority take showers about as long as me, and that's significant, too.

It's weird. I take approximately 10-15 minute showers and these are considered horrendously long by most of my family but horrendously short by most of my friends. To me, it's the shortest time necessary in order to wash my face/body, shampoo and condition my hair, as well as have a generally enjoyable time. Things like shaving and teeth brushing normally come before the shower, but since I do both every day (as well as shower), they don't take all that much time in the grand scheme of things.

Morning showers take between 5 to 10 minutes as I have to be up and out of the house early, but evening showers can take between 30 minutes to an hour, lol. In evening showers, I like to sit down in the shower and think about things, get in touch with my emotions, sing softly, etc. I find that long showers are the only times in which I am completely undisturbed by anything around me and I can do whatever it is that I need to do without thinking about anything else. I only have to shave once a week, so that's that I do in Sunday showers, the rest of that is spent cleaning or doing the previously mentioned soul searching. I just think that lying down (to the best of my ability) with the nozzle raining warm water on my scalp is something that I cannot rush at all, so I tend to sit there for who knows how long, lol. Sometimes I even fall asleep, lmao.
I don't have to worry about a water bill, as my town provides its own water through a tank system, so I pursue this lifestyle without thinking about how much it's costing me. Still have to pay for electricity, but that's fine.

It honestly depends on my mood, sometimes I'm not really bothered and it takes 10 minutes and other times it can take up to 30 minutes, same reasons as Harlequin here, can't describe it any better than he did haha.

When I go to the leisure centre, I often see people taking showers that last about 2 minutes :0 I always wonder how they clean themselves so fast. I guess it also takes a lot of discipline to shower quickly.

I take showers lasting roughly 10-20 minutes. Waste of hot water, but oh well what ya gonna do =P I know some people that have showers set on timers.

I usually want to make my showers less than 10 minutes. Most of it is waiting for the shampoo to do its work.

I'm not going to go too in-depth, but the length of time I'm in the shower ranges from a measly two minutes to around 15-20 minutes.

I can't be in the shower for an extended period of time, because as soon as I'm dressed and all I'll be yelled at by my parents about water economy and how it's horrible for the environment to be using so much water.

Please.

For me the time it takes to bathe definitely depends on where I'm going first of all, a regular shower before school 10-15 minutes, 5 mins if I'm just going to the shop or something trivial like that and as long as an hour if I'm going somewhere special or for a special occasion.

It's very very rare I ever go in for a shower, because I go in for a bath instead. But, if I do go in for a shower, it is normally around 20 minutes.

My showers take at least fifteen minutes because I have a hair and face routine in there that takes that long. I'm quicker on the nights I don't wash my hair, but the face part takes up most of the time because generally I can leave conditioner in my hair while I do my face for time economy.

I think all women can attest to washing out conditioner last for "time economy" lol

Why is it so hard to wash out conditioner? Are you supposed to get rid of all of it?

30 minutes. On days I feel especially lazy and just do nothing but enjoy the cool water. But it's generally more like 15 minutes. And yes, I do get nagged quite a bit. Parents, ugh.

I avoid showers at all times. I like having my stench having an affect on people. ^ ^ But when I do shower, I get out as soon as I can. xD

Less than 5 minutes. I'm curious as to why some people take longer than 10 minutes in the shower. Maybe it's because I have shorter hair than most other people? Maybe it's because I'm so quick at washing myself?

My sister4 does that lol

I always feel like Veronica Lodge whenever soap or conditioner is left in my hair. I can't find the comic strip itself, but Veronica asks Jughead to go and get expensive shampoo, but he comes back with generic stuff. She gets angry, throws Jughead out and uses that shampoo instead. Everything's good: she goes with Archie to the dance and they have a great time; however, when they leave, it starts to rain and her generic shampoo causes her hair to overflow with soap bubbles lol!

I always thoroughly rinse to avoid a similar scenario :v

My usual shower times are around 15 minutes in the morning, I mainly have it that long so I can get clean everywhere due to the fact I work most of the week. But oh god that warm water is so beautiful in the winter, it's freezing over where I am right now.

My dad does, too lol Thus the reason for this topic XD

I was in there for 30min the other day doin' stuff (I forgot to do my stuff in order, so it took longer z.z was waaayyyy too sleepy teehee) and he was like, "The city just called. They wanted to know why the city's water reserve was drained; I told them they should talk to you."

And, of course, the classic, "Leave some for the fishies!"

I finally told him about this topic on Friday and told him some results. He thinks people are nuts. He then asked his own father what he thought, and now he declares a new poll and that for people living in reality, the max time should be <10min.

so for the rest of us in lala-land, we have been estranged.

The only thing that I can say to him is this: If you only need a 10 min. or less shower, you either:

1. Aren't working hard enough.
2. Have no body hair to speak of

Or...

3. You like having an odor of a damn skunk on you at all times.

Really, any sensible person would like to be as clean as possible come the next day, especially if that person has a long, hard day ahead of them.
