    Personally I'll shower 5-6 days a week. Before I go out I'll shower to avoid making life unpleasant for those around me. If I'm just staying at home gaming/studying/being a lazy fuck or taking a five minute trip up to the supermarket I wont bother.

    Earlier today I was messaging one of my friends. An English translation of our conversation goes something like this:

    Her: Good morning
    Me: How are you today? I just got home.
    (some small talk...)
    Her: Have you showered yet? Have you had dinner yet?
    Me: I'm not hungry. I'll shower tomorrow.
    Her: What!? You don't shower in the evening? You're that dirty?
    (hygiene debate...)

    Up until now I've never given much thought to showering twice a day. I've never seen a reason to bother. As far as your health goes you only need to shower once or twice a week.

    Once every-other day, to conserve energy and water. Unless I got absolutely sweaty at work, then I'll shower no matter what, but usually every-other day suffices.

    3/4 times a week.
    During a school week = 3
    Summer/ Weeks off etc =4 or even 5
    If I feel a bit sweaty after school I’ll wipe myself down in the sink with water wherever I sweat

    I shower at least once a day, but I only wash my hair every other day. Washing your hair everyday damages it.

    every night, before bed. i really dont like the idea of bringing sweat and dirt from the day into my bed. ill shower in the morning if im not going to work and if im staying home all day. also, i like to shower a couple of times in the day if its really hot in the summer.

    Indeed it does.
    When using shampoo, you rinse away the natural oils your scalp produces to keep your hair soft and strong.
    Shampoos which got oils added to them don't work nearly as good as natural bodily oil.

    Also, if you regularly go to a barber and have your hair washed there, you got an increased risk of forming a blood clot in your neck veins as you lean back to get your hair washed.

    Everybody who cares about their hair, please, don't wash it every day.

    I have to add tho, the time I take for a shower is roughly 30-40 mins.
    This includes a bodyshave n what not.
    Sometimes I do it in 15 mins, when I'm at me brother, playing games.
