How Long Do You Take A Bath?

Would You Say It Takes You An Eternity, so to speak, To Properly Clean Yourself? Or It Only Takes about A Few Minutes? It takes me about 45 minutes to an hour for my first bath of the day. I have a very long thick hair and I like to shampoo and condition it well. I use loofah and then soap my whole body again for a second time. I shave my legs and scrub my sole. And outside, my husband is calling out for me to hurry up because the baby is already crying. So much for my luxurious bath. How long does it take you?

It takes me about 15 minutes to wash my hair with conditioner and wash my body with a sioap and a another 15 minutes to change and get ready to go to school. I usually wake up morning because I always stay up late so I don't really have much time for a bath. I usually shampoo my hair the night before and scrub myself with a bath creme and loofah. On the weekends though it usually takes me also about 45 minutes to an hour. I love to take luxurious baths because it helps me relax and prepare myself for a new day. Sometimes I just love to stay under the water, thus the long showers. ~

I take bath atleast for half an hour, normally during morning hours I will be very busy because I am a working mom, me and my hub both of us has to get out of home at same time, I have to give bath to two of my kids as well, but still most of the time I take for my bath because I do have a long black hair like you, I take head bath atleast thrice a week, so it will surely take some time for me, I feel it is waste of time.I am planning to cut my hair but my hub says no

My husband likes my long hair and usually smells it before we go to sleep, so, you see i have to make sure that it smells good. He already saw me with a short hair and he doesn't like it one bit. I like my hair now and I don't see any problem if I maintain it..he wants it long, so wait 45 minutes for me to be finished ..thanks..

Same here, even two hours sometimes!! I take a shower more often than bathing so when I take a bath I make sure that I enjoy every minute and hope it lasts a lifetime. Between work/business, kids, cooking, cleaning, laundry and a husband, time is a luxury I cannot fully enjoy so when I do get some time then I make it worth while.

When I take a bath I intend to be a long while. I often catnap especially if I'm in the tub because I'm not feeling well.

I am one who can soak and relax in a bubble bath for an hours without ever doing anything . When I finally am ready to clean myself by shower or bath it takes me about 30 mins . When I was in school I would take about an hour. What I first do is clean my whole body with soap . Then , I will shave with some cream . After that I will wash my hair with shampoo and then condition for a good 5 mins . After , I rinse off I will then wash my whole body with a loofah with some time of shower gel or scrub . Last , I will use a fash wash for my face .

Hmmm 45 minutes? Is that bath or shower? If its shower imagine how many gallons of water you are going thru? Myself I'm a shower person. I too have long thick hair, but I'm rarely in the shower longer than five minutes max. And I figure one time washing is enough, I don't go for a second trip. LOL If I missed a tiny spot I'm sure I'll hit it the next time.

It isn't a "bath tub" bath. It's a regular bath. My hair is so thick and reaches up to my waist. What I do is take turns in shampooing and conditioning it,let's say shampoo today and tomorrow will be conditioner and none on the third day. I shower the second time around, it only takes me about 10 minutes. It's too hot where i am. I dont know exactly how many gallons but maybe at least 5 gallons. In order to "reuse" the water, when rinsing my hair, I have a pail ready. The water from my hair goes there. I use it then to flush the toilet. With all the household chores I do everyday besides taking care of the family, bath time is the only luxury for me these days. And a break and rest time just the same..

I normally bath 3 times a day. One on waking up, 2nd one in the afternoon and the final one at night. It doesn't take me more than 10 minutes each time. I don't waste my time unnecessarily in the bathroom. Taking 45 minutes is far too long to take a bath.

hehhe very interesting discussion,well it takes me 30 min.But i take bath twice in a day because in my side weather is to hot so i need to bath twice a day,otherwise it's very difficult to feel comfortable.

It is extreme hot weather in our place. so we need to keep us cool and fresh. For this purpose I use to take bath twice a day. Early in the morning bath is very important to become fresh. Bath after noon sleep is also helps me to make fresh. Bath before going to bed is also necessary for calm an cool sleep. But this all is not possible in winter season. I prefer to take bath more than one time and I do it to make me fresh.

It just depends on what I am doing it doesn't take me long unless I am shaving my legs or armpits. I do not usually do this often unless it is summer and I am intending to wear shorts. Even if I am not going out, I do not shave my legs. I would say that it takes me about ten minutes tops in the shower and 20 minutes if I am taking a bath as I like to soak for a few minutes. Have a Great day.

I take around 20 - 25 mins for a bath , but if i am in a hurry then i take around 10 mins. I like to take long showers coz its very soothing and relaxing.I wish i had a bath tub at home so that i could soak myself in it and spend leisurely hours in the bath tub. ~Pinks~

45 minutes for me is too long, I usually take it for about 10 to 15 minutes. sometimes that includes my morning habit.

In most cases, I'm in & out of the shower in about 20 minutes... About twice a month, I actually take a full "Bath" & it depends on how I'm feeling at the moment... Once, I was in my bathtub for about 2 1/2 hours...

I used to take a long time taking a bath. But now I don't really take too long. If I'm not washing my hair then I usually take around fifteen minutes. But If I am going to wash my hair then I take thirty minutes. I don't really shave my legs too often but when I do it just adds to the time. I'll say about five minutes or so.
