How often do you bath/shower? - August 11th 2015, 04:29 PM

I bath/shower every day, I sometimes shower twice a day if it's really hot. I always thought that was normal but most people I know don't seem to bath/shower than often :| How often do you?

I'm the same as you, I have shower everyday and if it's really hot then I'll probably have 2 showers a day.

Re: How often do you bath/shower? - August 11th 2015, 06:18 PM

Every day to every other day, depending on the time of year. During school, more like every day, but weekends I'll skip a day sometimes or when I'm super stressed and don't have time or something. Throughout this summer it's been more like every other day. That's what deodorant and body spray is for. I know when my roommate moved to Arizona she had to bathe twice a day. I'm used to hot weather so I know you're gonna be smelly anyway.

I just feel really disgusting and gross if I go for a day without a bath/shower :| Even when I was really depressed I would force myself to bath.

I shower at least twice a day. Sometimes up to, well, a lot. Depends. I can shower 8-10 times a day. Helps with stress.
So relaxing and comforting.

Re: How often do you bath/shower? - August 12th 2015, 10:50 AM

I usually go through phases of showering twice a day everyday and only showering like twice a week... Most of the time I'm really lazy when it comes to showering, but I always shower if I have to make human contact (i.e for school) and if I'm starting to smell a little sweaty... so if it's winter, I can go a few days without a shower, but when summer comes I shower at least once a day. Actually, my record has probably been a week to be honest.
I know I sound gross but it's the truth!

I think it's healthiest to shower when you start feeling or smelling a little icky... so obviously it will vary depending on the time of year and where you live.

I'm not really sure but I know not every day or every other day.
Sometimes every other day but usually every couple of days or....more than that.
This is so embarrassing to admit!
I have noticed that when I am less depressed hygene is easier to keep up with but that when I am down, it is an afterthought.

How often do you all wash your hair? I used to wash it everyday but my hairdresser kept telling me to stop washing it so much. I wash it every other day now. It gets really greasy so I can't leave it too long.

Re: How often do you bath/shower? - August 12th 2015, 10:18 PM

I usually shower once a day, but when I'm depressed or not going out as much it'll be every other day. I tend to have trouble with taking care of myself when I'm not doing well. I actually have a lot of trouble brushing my teeth when I should because it causes flashbacks.

I wash my hair whenever I shower. I can't leave it very long and honestly, I feel really horrible when I don't wash it once a day, even though that's not good for your hair. My hair is also extremely curly and I have to have it wet to put all the anti-frizz stuff in my hair. You should see how much of that stuff I go through. Along with my conditioner.

I wash my hair every time I shower. I know it's not as good for my hair, especially since my hair is kind of thin, but it's pretty oily and I couldn't do shower caps or something.

I can't imagine the water bills for those of you who shower 2+ a day. Hopefully they're short showers.

Anywhere from twice a day to every other day. It depends on my schedule. On the weekends if I don't do anything and don't leave my apartment is when it usually becomes every other day.

I used to shower every day. Now due to disability it's about once a week, but I wash everyday.

My normal schedule is to shower every morning. As for my hair, I usually wash it every other day, sometimes every third day, and I use dry shampoo to clean it on days I don't wash it.

I take a bath usually every other day, when I was in school it would be set days (Tuesday, Thrusday and Sunday) but now it's a little out of place so I also sometimes go three days without having a bath...

Usually no more than once a day and no less than every other day, but I don't keep track very well. I tend to wash my hair every second or third time I shower, which translates to a couple of times a week.

I usually shower every other day but I will have a bath on the days I don't shower. I will wash my hair when I shower and I'll keep it dry when I take a bath. My hair is curly and awful so I can't go longer than a couple days without showering. Plus, I can't brush my hair unless it's wet because it will double in size and goes horribly frizzy.

I shower daily to every other day, depending on my schedule and the weather. If it's not particularly hot and I'm pressed for time to get everything done, I'll usually skip a day. I usually go a few days without washing my hair because it takes such a long time to dry, even with a blowdryer. I take baths whenever I have the time because I honestly find them so relaxing.

I bath everyday, sometimes twice a day, although thats a new routine because I also find it hard to look after myself in this way when I am mentally unwell. But its something I am working on

If I'm at home then I will take a bath, if I'm at my boyfriend's then I will have a shower. The only time I will go without one is if I'm ill or extremely tired but that's very rare that I won't have either. I prefer baths though.

I shower every other day. I was my hair about that often as well. I could probably go longer without washing my hair but I feel like it looks greasy and I hate that.
