    My friends/family are always amazed at how fast I shower and I want to see how much of an anomaly I am. ;)

    So, how long does a shower take you? Assuming washing body, hair, and any hygiene things you do in the shower.

    For regular showers like scrubbing down and washing hair (excluding leg shaving and such) about 10 minutes.

    10 minutes if I don't shave, 20 if I do.

    I'm a slow shaver.

    Used to take less than 15 minutes. Now I don't use shampoo, so less than 10.

    About 10 - 15 minutes usually without anything fancy. I can zip in and out if in an extreme rush though and still get just as clean in about 5 - 8 minutes.

    If I'm washing my hair, shaving etc - around 25 mins.

    Less than 10 minutes for me. 12-15 if I shave legs, too. My husband takes longer than me - his showers are usually 20-30 minutes!

    In the mornings it takes me a good 3-5 minutes just to fiddle with the radio, find the right water temperature, and adjust to having my eyes open. The actual showering part is 10 minutes or so.

    10-15 minutes usually. Probably shaved off a couple minutes of time by cutting my hair short.

    45 minutes or more lol I am an epic shower person.

    Bear in mind, all this is done WHILE singing a long to music and just being a child lol and usually before bed, so I have a lot of time...

    Rinse all over.
    Shampoo/Rinse shampoo.
    Apply conditioner and untangle.
    Apply deep conditioner.
    Apply shaving gel to various to be shaved areas.
    Shave whilst singing to a pop song.
    Rinse out conditioner.
    Apply face wash.
    Stand in water totally blind pondering life decisions.
    Rinse face wash.
    Get my loofah and use my body wash.
    Rinse body wash.
    Rinse entire body/face with cold water.

    Then I've gotta get out of the shower.. and If I'm not going out with people I've just got to towel off, put on body lotion and face lotion and eye cream (or SPF if I'm going outside at all) and lip balm.
    Then I put in a leave-in conditioner in my hair and braid it or put it in a ballerina bun.

    This about sums it up for me. Except the singing and cold water.

    Long hot showers are the best things. Only dominated by long hot baths.

    20-30 minutes. I take Briggs in with me so considering I have two of us to take care of I think I get it done pretty quick.
