When you take a shower, do you face into, or away from, the shower head?

I probably do a bit of both. When I need to get all the shampoo out of my hair I do a 360 one or two times resulting in a 720.

Hmmm I would say that it’s 50/50 I kind of go back and forth. I don’t like the water hitting my face directly, but I like to face standing the water.

I face it when I’m lathering, but I spin around for the rinse.

marinelife's avatar

I am opposite of Eambos. I get wet, then face away for the lathering, then turn back for the rinse! What an interesting question.

I always face away from the shower head.

Ung… just woke up after celebrating the migration. We’ll fix that as soon as we really wake up. Sorry about that folks.

Hmm. I actually face the wall so that the water hits my right side, then make numerous turns to rinse. I shave in the shower and my mirror is on that wall…then again, I also watch myself in that mirror while I shampoo and condition.
Perhaps I’m a vain maniac.

I face away unless I’m rinsing. I love the water hitting my back! ; )

The only time I don’t face it is when I’m rinsing the shampoo or conditioner out of my hair.

Away for the most part. Forward, face-down when rinsing shampoo out, which I’ve been told is stupid.

are scare of your shower?

PupnTaco's avatar

No, the hot water feels good on my tired, aching back. :|

I always face the other way

jrpowell's avatar

I don’t have a shower. But when I had one I would spend 90%+ of the time facing away. Now excuse me while I go “Office Space” on my damn bathtub.

Allie—i do the same as you!

@Andrew, you really are out of it, jefe. Mix in some centaurs during last nite’s server migration? I think you meant to answer this question, or perhaps this one. Right?

Or perhaps you simply showered facing the wrong direction today?

pixiequeen12's avatar

haha, robmandu! don’t exacerbate the confusion stemming from @Andrew’s inability to focus by not answering the question yourself! now you have me intrigued…

(I’m vaguely under the impression that people’s approaches to showering (ie—face the downpour head-on, or turn away) has a lot to do with people’s personalities. What do you all think of that? Do your showering habits say something about you?—Apart from a commentary on your general cleanliness, that is.)

huh?...bathroom psychology.. I’m in

We just remodeled our bathroom, so the shower has two shower heads, if you stand in the middle of the tub; you get accosted by H²O from both sides. There is no escape!

Trance24's avatar

Away when washing my hair, but towards it when I’m washing my body.

pixiequeen12's avatar

shockvalue! that’s amazing! i’m sooo jealous!

shockvalue's avatar

Haha, yepp! Only problem is we have a water shortage, so recently I have been shutting off the second nozzle. It’s not as fun, but I’m willing to suffer so the planet doesn’t have to!

I face into the shower for that good old downunder tickling sensation… actually I like the water on my face, I heard somewhere that men face into the shower and women face away, it wouldn’t seem like that’s the case here though.

yannick's avatar

I pretty much always face into the shower. Except for when I finish the shampoo, at which point I face sideways-outwards from the shower and attempt to throw the container over the shower and into the rubbish bin across the bathroom!

breedmitch's avatar

I have a rainfall type shower head, so I’m only facing it if I look directy up.

wizard's avatar

I face the shower the whole time, it washes the soap off better.

shockvalue's avatar

Depends on where the soap is…

scamp's avatar

My shower head is a hand held, so I face it and turn it onto my back.

charliecompany34's avatar

50/50. i like it in my face and on the back of my neck. i am upset when a hotel does not have adjustable settings.

deaddolly's avatar

I hate water in my face. I get wet, lather and turn away, rinse from both sides and then condition, turn away to wash while the conditioner does it’s conditioning, then rinse from both sides. I like the water on my back as well…
