    I tend to shower every other day. Only exceptions will be if I'm feeling quite stinking or dirty

    At least once a day and if I do something physical then twice a day. If I don't do that my head, back and arms start to itch.

    My hair is awful after I wash it, I always shower at night so I can sleep on my hair to get rid of the mess. I shower Mon,Tue,Thurs,Fri and Sun. This is mainly due to my skin being uncomfortably dry for a while and I just can't stand it :erm:

    I normally shower every other day cos I have three other sisters and my parents battling it out to use the shower! At my school I sometimes shower daily cos it can get really busy at times, such is IB life, and it's also a nice way to chill out

    Every other evening (never really during the morning), more often if I've been sweating/physically active.

    The people on here who get a shower 3 times a week probably stink without realising it. Nothing worse than sitting next to a smelly ******* eating your dinner.
    Yeah I was surprised how many people have said they dont have a shower every day. Ive always thought of it as something people were suppose to do once they reached puberty. And Im surprised at people saying its too much time/effort, dries out their hair/hair takes too long to dry etc. It takes 5 mins and you dont have to wash your hair every time you take a shower. You can wear a shower cap or tie your hair up, adjust the shower so it doesnt hit above shoulder level and wash your face and neck separately at the sink afterwards. I have a bath/shower every day but I only wash my hair 2/3 times a week.

    Moisturisng cream is good for this. You can be squeaky clean and have soft skin.

    My mate has told me he does not shower/bath everyday and showers/baths weekly. He is 15 as am I & I haven't noticed no problem with him, no unusually smell or nothing. How often do you guys shower/bath and is my mate an idiot or?

    Goshy.
    Is it possible he doesn't do much? The majority of fifteen year olds that I know are always sweaty etc mainly because they do a lot of sport/mixed with being a teenager. If he doesn't do much in an active sense then I suppose he won't sweat as much as some people do.

    Generally 2/3 times a week - my hair doesn't get that greasy, and plus it takes a few hours to dry so... I don't smell, and I wouldn't shower if I wasn't washing my hair. Part of the reason for this is - brace yourselves - I don't use shower gel, I've never used it in my life, actually, and my skin? Well, I'm having far less skin problems than the other people in my family, and it just smells of... skin; I don't stink. Some people don't use shampoo, I don't use shower gel. If I'd done serious physical activity though, I'd probably have a shower anyway, that's different.

    Feel free to call me weird.

    But then what's the advantage of a shower over a strip wash at the sink if you're not going to wash your hair and you have take extra time to tie up your hair etc? To me it doesn't make any sense, I may aswell run some water in the sink and just wash places like under my arms that actually need doing everday, rather than waiting for the shower to heat up, tying my hair back and fiddling with the shower head to do what I could have done already.

    The advice is to wash places like under your arms everyday once you reach puberty, but that doesn't have to be in shower or bath. Also like all advice it's very general and is designed to cover everyone all the time. Think of it like a use by date, I've once had something actually go off the day before (didn't lose out as I returned it) - that's the rare person who needs to wash twice a day. However for the most part food is still fine to eat for another day or two, just like for the most part people can get away with not washing for a day or two and not actually smell.

    Because you'll be washing your whole body not just pits, feet and bits. Although you do sweat from these parts the most, you do still sweat all over to. Tying hair up and adjusting the shower head only takes 30 seconds at the most and you can turn on the shower before you undress and it should be hot enough by the time you get in. I wouldn't consider it time consuming personally.
