If I'm just rinsing off because I'm dirty/sweaty, and I don't wash my hair, I take about 4 minutes.

If I wash my hair, I take around 7 minutes.

If I shave, and wash my hair I take 10ish? minutes.
The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.

When I shower, I do the whole shebang: shampoo, conditioner (amd I have long, thick hair), shave everything, face wash, body wash. That takes me around 25 minutes. According to my boyfriend, it takes me eons because he is in AMD out in under ten - but he just washes his (short) hair and body and is good to go.

My dad was in the navy and he taught us how to take short showers. Most of your body does not need to be scrubbed every day unless you work in a dirty environment. There's actually a book about this called, "How to wash your face."

5 minutes is plenty unless I've been digging in the garden, then it's still under 10 minutes.

I usually take like 25-30 minutes. I love long showers. I'm slow at shaving and I take ages washing/conditioning my hair, too. And not gonna lie- sometimes I just like to stand under the hot water. I know some people are morning shower-ers, and I think if I showered in the morning I would be quicker. But I always shower before bed- always have. So I can take my time.

That was the worst part about when I lived in the UK. The stupid dorm showers were horrible and freezing and there were always people queued up waiting to use them. Definitely not a nice, relaxing experience.

I try not to waste time in the shower, seeing as how only about 2% of the earth's water is fresh water. I'd say about 7 - 10 minutes and add 2-3 minutes every other time for shaving. I use to turn the water off in between things. Rinse, shut off, soap up/shampoo/turn water back on, rinse. But I've gotten less thrifty lately. lol. I also have to water quite a bit in my garden so I feel guilty if I use too much in every aspect.

~10 minutes.. but my entire "taking a shower" time is an hour. no more, no less. I use the rest of the time to read. Yep. That's about the only me-time when I can get away from Katie, the dogs & my hubby, so I better take advantage of it!

30 mintues without shaving. If shaving it takes a lot longer, but my hair hardly grows at all, so other than my arm pits I don't need to shave very often anyway.

I take my time in the shower because it's kinda my daily detox time. I find the water running over me to be very relaxing and I swear the stress relief of it helps me keep whatever small grasp of sanity I have.

If you are not alone... it usually takes longer LOL LOL

i think i am average, about 15 min, close to or over 30 if i have to shave anything. i try to use an electric razor for as much as i can because its so irritating to my skin & i hate all those bumps i get under my arms, plus applying deoderant to freshly shaved pits is a bitch, which is why i switched to Dove deoderant, because the degree i was using was causing mr horrible rashes after i shaved, dove has ingredients that soothe fresh shaved skin.
