Typically less than 10, but I picked the 2nd option because sometimes I wanna repeat that lather-rinse thing, and sometimes there is landscaping to be done. Under 10 for an express wash. LOL

Depends how much time I have.

Sometimes I won't wash my hair, then I can "shower" in like 5 minutes.

If I wash my hair it'll be 10.

If I shave it'll be like 30-60 minutes because I'm terrible at it, but that's not all showering, I turn the shower off when shaving and then reshower etc.

If I have lots of time then it's often until the hot water runs out, which used to be an hour but I put an old school shower head on there which dumps out water on you and it seems the hot water lasts like 20 minutes tops now.

10 minutes at most these days. Most showers are wash hair and get out.

5-10 minutes. Water is expensive! I have a friendwho lets the shower run for like 5-10 minutes before actually getting in.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

I said 11-20 minutes but thats if I have a long shower. I am the quick showerer in my family, I straightenmy hair daily so most days I don't even get it wet. I jump in, wash my face, wash my body and jump out. Between two and 4 times a week I'll wash hair/shave legs/underarms also and that adds up a bit.

When I was at uni, I lived with a girl who would listen to 2 FULL music albums in the shower...........

The weird thing is, she would only shower about once a fortnight too... This is one of the few occasions I'd advocate quantity over quality!!!

My usual pre-work shower is around 10 minutes. Shaving and such takes longer. Sometimes I love a nice long shower.

This. If I shave, add on 10 minutes to the end of the shower, but most of it is done with the water off. Normally I'm in and out in 10, slightly more if I do a deep conditioning thingy with my hair. More yet again if I am doing anything fancy with my face, like rinsing off a mud masque.

My boyfriend actually takes longer to shower than I do, so I feel okay about my shower times.
