    So how do you like your showers?

    Just wondering...

    I like mine warm (between 90-100 degrees) and long and with lots and lots of soap.

    Preferably warm. But it doesn't have to be.

    Hot shower. Loooooooong hot shower. I love to stand there and let my whole thirsty body absorb every life giving healthy drop of goodness as possible. Making sure every inch of my body is wet. Then I shampoo. Letting the shampoo ooze out of the container, I work it in with the utmost of care. I take it easy with my hair because I have to treat it gently. Suds all over to where it envelops every strand, every part of my scalp. Massage it deeply oh so generously to take full advantage of the smooth and thick lather. Then rinse, with the penetrating hot temperature, sure to open every shaft of hair and every pore in my scalp and get the sebum flowing. Then I apply conditioner. Generous amounts of that moisture giving complex, enabling my hair to suck in every iota of vitamins and protein that it possibly can, to result in the slippery, smooth hair that I cherish so much.

    Then rinse again. Leaving it free from any kind of residue, my hair will smell so.... clean and fresh....

    Then comes the soaping. Alllll over. Until there are clean bubbles all over and completely covering my body. Then as I let the clear water slowly dissipate the suds, I enjoy every moment of feeling the water running down.


    Half hour. No less.

    That post is going to get the men all hot and bothered to the point that they'll need to take cold showers.

    I could never over shampoo my head or else my hair would dry out.
    I always like the showers and baths to be mild, not too hot, not too warm. around 35c
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Hot showers are heaven when it is cold out. Hot baths even better. I can't wait to have a huge tub that I can lounge in. Soaking is bliss.

    cold showers are the best things on really sticky hot days.

    None of Foo has anything to do with biking. It's off topic chat.

    Nearly scalding, 10-60min depending on what I need to do in the shower (wash hair, shave, etc. etc.)
