    However, there are some benefits to generating antibodies by exposing yourself to common bacteria. This enables being able to consume items or be in environments where a non-acclimated person would suffer. But geez. Some people turn showering into some sort of religion. Get dirty and disgusting all you want. Just don't go crazy there either.

    In general, keep clean.
    But I think a lot of people shower too much and just waste time and water. Besides, the more frequent you shower, the faster you start to smell.
    Agreed.

    Personally I try to do it daily but sometimes I go a whole day without showering.

    Every day?

    Sometimes I go through phases that'll cycle between the excessive washing/OCD cleanliness period and the not showering/"let's bask in our natural oils" period, but usually I shower daily . Yay for being house-broken.


    Honestly, I think guys can get away with showering less than girls because we girls have a certain ..uh.. area of ours that requires we bathe more.

    Admittedly, I do have a different "smell" when I haven't shower for a couple of days. Not bad, just different.


    I wash my hair with shampoo and conditioner once a week or so.
    I wash my hair with shampoo and conditioner every two weeks and co-shampoo every three to four days.

    If I were to wash my hair every day or every couple of days, it'd be extremely dry, and homie don't play that.

    OK seriously, 9 people voted "3 to 4 times a week"? How creepy is that? O__o

    I shower and wash my hair on a daily basis.

    Not with the proper shampoo. At least I didn't notice anything like that.

    Whoever said less than once a month needs to get off this forum and get into the bathroom. You are making this place stank, son.

    How about we invent a water-proof casing for your computer, then you can take it in the tub with you. That way, you won't miss ANYTHING.

    Anyway, I prefer a daily shower. It gives me closure when I take one at night, and it's refreshing to take one in the morning, but I don't always have time for this unfortunately (thus 5-6 times a week is the more honest answer). I always make it a point to smell good though. Mmmm, deodorant.
