i do the same thing
its not that i dont like showering its that i am busy and forget until its too late because i hate sleeping with wet hair(horrible bedhead in the morning) but ya i only shower once or twice a week just make sure your hair doesnt look ratty, wear deoderant, brush your teeth, wash your hands, and wear clean clothes. people wont even notice then. actualy people tell me i smell good on a regular occasion(which i find weird). it doesnt matter all that much people are jsut too picky about how you ought to live your life. it saves water too =D. and thanks for not being such a clean freak

I shower 3 times a week. People don't notice a thing. I don't sweat, and it's good for the environment

I totally agree and for me its usually about three times a week too

I also only shower once a week - if that, but that's because I am probably depressed and dont have much to look forward to. When I was out of town for a few weeks, I'd regularly shower, dress up, put on make up, do my hair etc. Now I cant even be bothered to change out of my pajamas. It's depressing but everytime i want to shower I wonder: what for? No one sees me, it'd not like i got anywhere to be or anyone to impress and frankly, I am fine with oily greasy hair that i can just pull back in a pony tail and dont have to worry about fixing all the time.

So, no, it aint normal to shower once or twice a week but if you got crap going on in your life and aint with it, then in a way it is normal.

as long as you aren't smelly or visibly dirty i think there's nothing wrong with it. I only wash my hair once a week because its really long and a pain in the ass to wash and straighten. I just make sure to take a quick bath and wash my face EVERYDAY. Atleast wash your face and brush your teeth daily and youre set.

I would say so. As long as your habit doesn't strongly effect others, it's your body, do what you want with it.

I used to work 6 days a week and be gone from home for most of the day and was so busy that sometimes would be too tired to shower so the longest Ive gone without showering was like 2 weeks and no one ever told me I stink. Probably cuz I tried to at least be hygenic in other ways like washing face n hands and brushing hair n teeth and wearing perfume n deoderant.

I shower every other day. Apparently washing your hair every day deprives it of natural oils... or something.

i also don't do much, don't go out, and don't really sweat. i too would showr like twice a week, but i always, every day, washed my armpits and also my privates at least in the sink. cause those are the places u sweat the most, odor- wise.
anyways, i thought my hygene was ok, but i kept getting comments from my family that i had bad odor, and so now i try maing an effort to wash and change my clothes more often.
thats another thing, i would wear the same shirt for days, and smell it, if it seemed all right i would go on wearing it, but the people living with me made comments so am trying to be more aware of this.

I do the same thing but I wash my face and torso in a sink shower almost 4 times a week. As long as you're cleaning yourself.

Comment Hidden (show)
I usually wash myself over 1 day :P I spend lot of time in home so I don't get dirty or sweaty or whatever and next day after shower I still smell yummy and my hairs are good - I am clean.

But you should really wash urself more than 1-2 times LOL :P Morning Shower: good for waking up that is my uberproffesional advice to you!

Reading all this already makes me wanna go to shower :X I am going to shower now

Many people will judge you if you admit to not showering every day, but honestly, it's not necessary, natural, or even healthy (skin gets dried out).

However, once a week is probably pushing it a bit. As long as you haven't sweated and you don't smell, once every few days is fine. Just make sure to clean yourself well after using the bathroom. If your hair gets greasy, you should wash it once a day (just bend over the tub and put your head in). Same with your face, if it gets greasy, wash with a mild soap or cleanser. In winter, you can get away with showering less, and in summer, you have to shower more.

But bottom line, the only time a shower is necessary is when you're dirty. For most of us, that's at least every few days.

Actually... Showering everyday, and washing your hair everyday can sometimes be more harmful than beneficial. Unless you have some sort of medical condition that dictates you have to shower every single day, I'd try for every other day instead.

Hard water, chlorine, harsh chemicals in shampoo-bodywash-ect, can actually dry out skin and cause more harm than good. You have to let your body's natural oils replenish themselves.

Shower when u feel the need to but dont walk around stankey.

Shower at least every other day, dude. B.O. is unattractive and should be embarrassing.
Or shower every day of the week and skip weekends.
Comment Hidden (show)
I dunno, I shower every day, but that's because I get really oily hair if I don't. It may depend on your hair type (I know someone with very curly hair who doesn't shower as often--like once every three or four days) and the oiliness of your scalp/skin. Wash your face with some sort of cleanser if you're worried about breaking out, and use deodorant if you're worried about how you smell.

instead of ur spending time posting on forums wondering if its normal or not why dont u just go have a shower!

i had a friend that barely showered. we never wanted to hang out with him cuz he just stank so bad. dont do that to urself... showers and soap are there for a reason.

In the time it takes to fill a wash basin, and wash your armpits and private parts, it would be just as quick to take a shower.Then you are clean and sweet-smelling all over!!!

thats bad hygiene you should shower every day, this isnt england in the 1800s where they showed a few times a year
Comment Hidden (show)
it takes less than 5 minutes to take a shower if you don't wash your hair and 10 if you do... and only add another 5 minutes if you shave. Everybody has time to do this everyday. Are you just lazy?
Comment Hidden (show)
that is not normal at all. tht is just a lil weird! do you think people lke smelling you all of the time? bathe PLEASE
Comment Hidden (show)
you should try shower all the time, but then again not that long ago (hundred years perhaps) people didn't shower every day either...

If your over 14, then you should shower more.
Once you go through adolescents it's pretty important.

Although if you at least wash your hands and your face once or twice a day then I guess it isn't that bad.
Does anyone ever think you smell bad or anything?
If anyone notices your hygiene then you probably should start washing more.

it isnt that bad....long as you wash up everyday and dont go telling everyone...

i shower every single day

I shower twice a week and wash my hands and face every other day, dont do privates or anything other area unless in shower
Comment Hidden (show)
I try take a shower twice a week but it doesn't always work out like that. So I usually just wash up everyday and take showers on Fridays and Sundays. Does anyone else just do "wash ups"?
Comment Hidden (show)
I dont think its necessary to shower everyday, unless you do some type of intense activity or something. If I have a week where I dont really do much, i usually just shower 2-3 times that week.

When I got married, I was 10 days into my last shower. My new wife didn't complain. I'm 48 now and I've never showered more than 2 or 3 times a month since I was on my own. To me, this is perfectly normal.

hey, if a girl doesn't shower for a day or so, she does NOT smell like rotten fish. unless, she has some type of problem going on down there. a girl's vagina is pretty much odorless if everything is in perfect working order.

I didn't shower for 2 weeks once and I had about 4 or 5 girls say I smelled nice. Maybe they were making fun of me but it didn't look like it.

I should bottle my B.O. and sell it as cologne.

I think it's bizarre that people go so long without bathing. I'm a pretty clean person; I bathe daily, use deodorant, wipe my ass thoroughly, floss...you get the picture. I HAVE skipped a shower here and there over the course of my lifetime, and I gotta tell ya, I don't like the feeling. I don't stink, nor am I visibly scummy, but I just don't feel right. I'd LOSE MY MIND if I went DAYS without bathing. Ugh.

hi there , yes 'flikr' [above]is absolutely correct..
If all the people you associate with ,were brutally honest with you ,they would tell you that you have an odour.Unwashed hair is a big issue too ,and it is visible to the rest of the world who will unfortunately 'judge' you.
Get yourself a really good hygiene program going ,and reap the benefits..good luck!

man u need to shower no one wants to spell sweaty armpits and ass and if u dont want your hair wet then wear a shower cap.... gosh showers are rejuvenating stinking is juss plain humiliating good luck

I used to do the same thing. Now it's probably three times a week. Warm water feels good, but it just gets so boring. That's why I don't take a crap that often or brush my teeth (which I've begun doing again). If I want anal stimulation, I'll just get a dildo.
