    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.

    So you accept you sweat more from 'pits, feet and bits', but you need to wash the other areas once a day too? Do you therefore wash 'pits, feet and bits' again in the middle of your day because surely by then they've reached the same level as the rest of your body would by the next morning? Then in the summer you sweat more than in winter, so do you then have 2 showers a day in addition to 2 extra washes of just 'pits, feet and bits'? If you go abroad to a hot country do you go to 3 or 4 of each a day, making 6-8 washes per day every day?

    You must have a shower that heats up fast, I'm always waiting another minute or two after getting undressed and using the toilet.

    I shower once a day, and during this shower I always wash my hair. Some people can go a couple of days without showering and they still look clean, but I hate the feeling I get when I haven't showered for over 24 hours.

    In the summer I usually have two showers. If I did go to a hot country than yes Id shower more. Im surprised you think its odd that I have a shower daily without washing my hair, most women I know do the same as me.

    It's not that I think it's odd that you have a daily shower, it's that I think it's odd that you think it's odd to not do it.

    Some people prefer to shower every day or even mulitple times a day and that's fine, but that doesn't mean everyone who doesn't smells bad. The adding up to 6-8 washes thing was just to demonstrate that, as if you had to wash everywhere everyday in Winter to not smell then logically you'd need to be washing your 'pits' something like 8 times a day once you get to sunny weather abroad. Yet nobody (or very few clean freaks) will actually wash that much and you don't arrive at your holiday resort thinking everyone smells, so if you follow the logic back you can't have to wash everywhere every single day to not smell bad.

    Then there's the fact that some people sweat more than others so will get away with longer periods of not washing and some people might have better soap/shower gel/deodrant/shampoo that could keep them cleaner and smell-free for longer etc.

    Its not that I think its odd its just I was surprised how many have said they don't bathe/shower daily. Everyone I know (when its come up anyway) has said they have a bath/shower at least once a day and it was what I was told in sex education at school, I assumed most people were the same.

    It's probably easier for boys but daily... Hair takes about two seconds to dry tbh.

    Every day, it helps me wake up in the morning. I wash my hair every day as well, which I know is supposed to be bad for it but I just feel really horrible if I haven't washed it.
