Yes you can. Take it from somebody that is "pretty much retired" young and works only because I want to occasionally.

  1. Forget pride. DO NOT keep up with the Joneses.

  2. Save. SAVE SAVE.

  3. BE FRUGAL. This means clothes from thrift stores only on sale/coupon days.

  4. Scratch and dent food stores. Find them. Also learn to pressure cook dry beans for meals. EAT CHEAP, EAT HEALTHY. Learn to cook.

  5. Learn to make home made everything, including laundry detergent, cleaners, etc. It is a lot easier than people say.

  6. Buy a small Japanese car with great gas mileage. Nothing fancy. Toyota Yaris is a great example. Standard shift, so you don't have to worry about expensive auto transmissions. Take care of the car well. Oil especially. Get great MPG's. Nothing funky like hybrids. Just get the car that will last 20 years with excellent MPGs. Tried, true, tested.

  7. Learn to do all home repairs yourself. No service calls. Youtube is your biggest friend.

  8. Freebies / cheap stuff on craigslist.

  9. /r/buyitforlife Get stuff that lasts, used, on Craigslist.

  10. Did you notice how much of my post thus far is about NOT spending?

  11. Earn what you can, LIVE CHEAP. Mobile home? /r/vandwellers perhaps? Small PAID OFF HOME. NO RENT. Get a home with CHEAP taxes. Country homes offer this and are safe to live in.

  12. Use CITICARD 2% off everything credit card and pay it off every single month. Do not forget to pay it off. It will give you a life discount of 2%. Better yet when you have to buy at stores, buy 2nd hand gift cards online with your 2% off credit card. You can save a lot this way.

  13. Investments are important, but not nearly as important as managing your spending. It's just like those people that want a solar power home they think "how many panels do I need" at first, rather than figuring "how do I save power" first. You have to save save save.

  14. Again thrift store clothes and used appliances (from the 1990s), stay away from modern junk appliances. Energy star is not your friend. Those things break. Older stuff is more reliable.

  15. No debt ever. Pay stuff on time - no late fees. Everything adds up. Micromanage. Even a $25 bidet add on to a standard toilet will save you a fortune in TP costs.

  16. Spot heat/cool your home. Space heaters / window unit AC in the rooms people sleep in. Let the sofa get cold in the other room.

  17. Water saving shower heads. https://www.amazon.com/LDR-502-1100-Showerhead-Control/dp/B000I1EA70 <- That one. Accept no others. Mine is 1/2 gallon a minute. Take fast fast showers.

  18. Water on demand water heaters save tons of power. Dual flush toilets save water. If you are a guy and can, find a pp tree.

    Most of all remember, it's not always what you make. Many people make 50k a year and are broke all the time. It's about pride, what you spend, how much your "image" to others matters to you. Debt is horrible and evil. Remember this - make holidays special by spending time with others... It's not always about money.

  19. Get free hobbies. Hiking for instance. Also Canoeing is great if you can find a used canoe. Things like this.

    I'm not rich, nor ever was. Not Bill Gates or some guy who struck big bucks. Just found a way to live a fairly quality life for very little money. Can I retire, yes, sort of.... Can I work very part time at any job period - YES. No debt, live CHEAP.

    Now you have the time to serve Jesus with the rest of your life. :)
u/jixie007 · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Sorry for replying to an older thread, lol. I wanted to offer a couple suggestions.

  1. Distilled water is much cheaper than micellar water and is available basically everywhere. It doesn't have the cleansing ability of micellar water, but it's a good option for rinsing. I'd recommend trying this for your hair. Depending on how long your hair is, 1 gallon should be enough to wet your hair and rinse afterwards. Another option would be RO/DI water. Both options are free of chlorine, floride, and trace minerals.* Some places you can even refill your water bottles so you're not wasting a ton of plastic (I think WalMart does this?).

    * Distilled water and RO/DI are not great for drinking all the time, because you do need those trace minerals in your diet. ;) For drinking I suggest a Brita filter or something that will remove the chlorine taste.

  2. A vinegar rinse in your hair will help alleviate hard-water build up in hair (also clarifies / removes any leftover product). I went through a long natural hair-care phase and the only things stuck were ACV rinses and henna like 3 times a year. ACV leaves my hair softer and silkier than any conditioner, without weighing it down or making it greasy. I dilute 1 tbs to 1 cup water (but I have hella hair, so you may not need that much!).

  3. Likewise, if you're washing your hair daily, work on spacing out your washes until you're washing weekly (and if you can, longer!). Unless you use a ton of product, it's better for your hair and scalp. And for me, hair washing is the longest part of the shower routine, so you'll be spending less time in the shower period.

  4. The reason SLS is so common is because it is a better detergent for hard water, whereas actual soap tends to get scummy and leave a film or deposits. So a "beauty bar" like Dove or a body wash with SLS or ALS might be a better option than actual soap bars. Or try using a gentle shampoo as a body wash.

  5. You can get a water softening showerhead filter. Obviously it won't be as good as a heavy-duty whole-house filter system, but it should help and they're pretty easy to install. I actually got one, but can't get our old showerhead off and need to get our landlord to have it installed :P See if your parents are okay with this, especially if you're buying, hah. Here's the one I got and they have a hand-held version.

    Also hard water is drying and it's rough on your hair, but I'm not sure hard water would cause that degree of break out. It could be a reaction to chlorine. Or could be something else entirely. I'd check with your Dr next time you have a visit, just to see what they think.

Get higher!

Showering at an [8]-[10] is the only way to go man! Buy an LED color changing shower head and listen to your favorite tunes. For me personally I go for some mellow trance like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjTSpgAm8QM but whatever makes you feel good is the goal here.

The combination of the constantly changing rainbow of colors from the shower head, the hot water, and the music is awesome. Toss in your own CEVs and you have a fun time. Of course at [8] anything is awesome, but if I know I am going to get really high I make sure I have time for a shower! I love a hot shower after a long day though, so if you have an aversion to water you might not like it as much as I do.

This shower head is similar to the one I purchased.
http://www.amazon.com/O-FLO-Powered-Color-Changing-Showerhead/dp/B00HYE8S8G/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1406566600&sr=8-8&keywords=led+shower+head is the one I bought

Also, if you are thinking "This sounds like a good idea for sexy time with my SO," it is.

Edit: I guess if you are actually just wanting a shower to get clean, and you aren't interested in a magic carpet ride through space my method might not be one to consider.

u/brilaxing · 20 pointsr/toastme

You are gorgeous girl! Keep your head up, you can get through this. Dry shampoo can help spruce up your hair besides washing it. I also suffer from eczema. Besides using over the counter hydrocortisone (steroid cream) for breakouts, here's a few things I've done that help me:

Only wash your clothes with scent free detergent. I currently use Arm & Hammer Sensitive skin free and clear. For fabric softener in the wash I use white vinegar. (It does not make your clothes smell and for bonus points it helps clean your washing machine)

For showers, invest in a shower filter. I know it sounds high maintenance but it helps filter out the chlorine in tap water. This results in healthier skin and hair. They sell some that attach to your current showerhead and some that replace your shower head.
Also scent free soaps. Aveeno or dove original works for me.
The last advice is drink more water! Good luck OP, have a wonderful day!

Shower filter link

Showerhead with filter link

Edit: link issue
Edit 2: And lots of moisturizers! Such as Lubriderm, Curel or Cetaphil. Rub it 2-3 times a day head to toe. Once your eczema starts getting better, use it after you shower. As much needed.

u/cleeder · 1 pointr/NoPoo

Good to know about the hair mask. I'll do some research.

I've considered a shower filter, and was actually going to make a post here about what to look for in a a shower filter. I need to find a handheld showerhead filter like so, but I don't know what qualities to look for in terms of the filter itself.

My hair wouldn't be quite long enough to do a french braid, I don't think. My topmost layer of hair only hangs naturally just below my ear. Pulled straight, it's about chin length. For now, I just put it up in a folded-over bun/tail when I want to get it up and out of my way, and/or combined with a cap.

AS fro the pillowcases, I have a couple of satin-y pillow cases that I change out regularily. I don't know that they're technically satin, as they're polyester, but I am on the hunt for a whole new set of bed sheets, and with the warmer weather, I'm looking for silk/satin.

Going natural is definitely a lot more work, I agree. I remember when I had short hair, I could wake up, shower, and be done with it. Now, with longer hair, it takes a lot more time. Going one step above that and going for natural hair care, I spend more time on my hair these days than my s/o does!

FYI, I was going to wash my hair today, but instead I gave it a good BBB and applied some cornstarch. That stuff really does work wonders. I guess my other concern with it is if it will cause too much oil to be washed out of my hair when it comes time to wash it. When I wash my hair with W.O., there is obviously still a light coating of oil remaining on my hair afterwords. If the oil is being soaked up by a product, will my hair be dry after washing it out?

u/sharkballs · 1 pointr/PolishGauntlet

WORK SUCKS (ohgodiwishihadajob)

I don't know if you're into to make up at all, but I found out about this super awesome Etsy shop the other day on /r/makeupaddiction - anothersoul. Basically you can rip out all your powders/eyeshadows, throw out the packaging and put them all in one container like this. It seems like such a cool idea if you have a ton of stuff, which I'm starting to have...oops! There are a bunch of examples here :D

That's what I would get. But if you're not into makeup may I suggest a $90 inflatable Dalek or this showerhead that changes colour?

Sorry about work, hope you're enjoying your last day of freedom!

u/midnitewarrior · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Yes, Amazon has 2 around $10. I've used the 2.0 GPM for 5 years and it's been great. I regret not getting the 1.5 GPM to save even more water.

1.5 GAL Super Saving "Amazing Shower" $9.99

Super Spray Clean, Water Saving, Low Flow Amazing Shower Head 2.0 Gpm
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003XEZH5I/ $10.62

It was only $5 when I bought it in 2015, but you don't have to get all spendy on name brand to save water and have a good shower.

u/luminous_delusions · 2 pointsr/FancyFollicles

Haha, probably not! The only ways I've learned to deal with hard water are either water softening systems (which are installed in a whole house's plumbing), getting a filtered showerhead, and/or using a shampoo that will counter-act hard water effects. I'm dealing with the issue myself in that the hard water here is turning my hair super brassy faster than I can keep up with it.

If you're staying in a place long enough to receive packages, I'd definitely get a shower filter and maybe some shampoo to help. If you can't the best thing is to just rinse your hair with filtered water or do an apple cider vinegar rinse to remove build-up from the water. I actually just ordered this filter since it seems to have the best reviews and a lot of them mention it improving their hair. The shampoo I got was Ion's Hard Water Shampoo (Sally Beauty brand) that I'd seen recommended a lot on other sites. I can't really comment on either since they haven't arrived yet, though. Sorry I can't be more help!

u/Thesepeoplearewrong · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I ended up getting a shower head that came with a Bluetooth speaker in it. https://www.amazon.com/K-9245-CP-Showerhead-Wireless-Speaker-Polished/dp/B00A46X48A

I like it so far. Granted you do have to charge it but for me the charge lasts a week or even more. The phone is able to connect from about 15 feet away while its on the charger in my bedroom.

Pros and Cons:

Pro: Super simple install, looks pretty good (no random speaker hanging out), battery last a long time, is surprisingly loud.

Con: The shower head itself doesn't have any kind of spray adjustments, you do have to charge the speaker (as opposed to being powered or having unpowered speakers), and of course the price is a little steep.

u/FakeFilter · 1 pointr/videos

They changed that system in the middle of last year. There is a ton of information out there if you are curious but here is one article:

They weigh reviews based on the age of the review, how helpful it is perceived, and a large number of other factors. Same thing I do except I removed sponsored reviews from the picture completely before creating a weighted average.

Here is an example:
Amazon rating: 4.1
Average of the 60 reviews: 4.3

Meanwhile I can't even put together enough quality reviews to rate the item because the sample of real and useful reviews is too small.

But the simple average of the remaining real and useful reviews is: 3.0

u/KatelynnPwnz · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I was just gifted this key holder I love it, its perfect size and pretty, my SO and I hang our keys and sunglasses on it! :)

This retro toaster oven/coffee maker is cute and it comes in different colors!

A nice shower head I HATE the low pressure spray everywhere shower head that came with my apartment. Lol

Tupperware is essential I didn't realize how important it was when we first moved in until my SO had to take macaroni salad in a ziplock for lunch xD

Cutting boards are also really helpful! I have a marble one for meat but the flexible ones make cutting up veggies and adding them to your dish way easier!

u/carousalcat · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

SecretLifeofABioNerd once talked about this one in her videos. xox
I've never tried it, but always been interested after she said it helped her skin and hair, honestly there's so many out there that I haven't shifted through all the reviews to see which seem like the best. It's been on the back burner for me, for a long time, even though I should really look into it.

u/amazongifter · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Alright, so you have a few options.

  1. Replace your shower head with this LED one. Requires no batteries as it uses the water pressure to activate. Have fun taking awesome showers in the dark with neon water.

  2. Get a magic drawer box. Its a fun gift for a friend. Watch as they struggle to figure out the puzzle. Of course, once they solve it, you should have 1500 live lady bugs inside

  3. With 50 dollars you would also have enough to buy 750 glow in the dark stars. Enough to decorate your house or room to look like this

    Plenty more options/ideas on this website http://www.justtenorless.com/

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. Yes a million times over. The water in my city is so bad that I used to get out of the shower feeling like I had been in a pool. This is the filter that I ended up getting and it's seriously amazing. I can't even begin to tell you how much I appreciate this little thing. It has helped my skin feel noticeably softer, my hair feels much cleaner and doesn't get as greasy as quickly as it did before. I have way less dandruff, and I even feel like it has helped my acne as well. I just feel much cleaner.

I honestly would reccomend one of these shower filters to anyone living in a city that has questionable water. The filters only need to be replaced every 6 months, and they're only $10 on amazon. It's a no brainer imo.

u/barkbitch · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I've wanted a rainbow LED Color Changing Shower Head for awhile. My kids would love it and my husband and I could play strip club. Ha ha!

u/kajaclair · 1 pointr/NoPoo

Not to say everyone can afford $25, but I used to think I couldn't afford a filter until I saw this shower filter. The replacement filters equate to about $20 a year.

I've been doing no poo (just conditioner, and I just use whatever I feel like: herbal essences, head and shoulders... nothing natural) for over a year, and once I got past the greasy phase (I "cheated" by doing it while on a beach vacation), I never had a problem until I moved and we have super hard water. So I bought this filter, but I haven't really tried it yet. I'll let you know how it goes if you're interested.

Oh and for reference I have pretty much your same hair type.

u/40WNKS · 1 pointr/HaircareScience

As another natural blonde here:

First off, I can 100% assure you that your unwanted hair tone has nothing to do with mental health. As far as a vitamin deficiency, I'm about 90% certain it's not that, especially if you live in a 1st world country and have a fairly varied diet. (Not to discount some people's success with consuming more zinc & biotin, but that's a whole other thread. Those supplements won't help with the color of your hair anyway, just the amount / length.)

Most likely, your green dull hair tones are caused by hard minerals and the chlorine in your shower / bath water. Also, do you swim a lot? Chlorine is a huge known culprit of turning blonde tones green.

What can you do?

First, treat the underlying cause. If you do swim a lot (i.e. a few times per week), wear a swim cap. If that's not the reason, consider buying a shower head water filter attachment such as one of these. Or conversely, if you're in the financial situation to do so, consider a whole-house water softener. A water softener treats all of your house's tap water and as an added bonus, makes it taste a whole lot better too. I used to have one and it made such an amazing night / day difference in the softness of my hair. I didn't need to use very much conditioner at all, could comb it without a detangler, and my hair wasn't frizzy, unlike how it is now. When I move, a water softener is near the top of my priority list.

Next, consider buying a shampoo specially formulated for swimmers, if swimming was the cause. You'll have to trial & error on those, as I can't recommend a good one.

And last but not least, I would recommend trying a purple shampoo, such as this one from Joico. I do personally use this one from Joico, and it does work for me. The inherent violet property of the shampoo neutralizes yellow tones. However, I do not tend to get green tones in my hair, rather I get brassy or harshly yellow tones. I'm sure it has to do with the unique chemical / mineral makeup of my local hard water.

I know it's frustrating, but the problem isn't insurmountable. I hope my post has helped you! :)

u/Divine2012 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This is more than $15, but I really want this for my mom since the water where she lives is hard and turns her hair into hay.


Thanks for the contest. Share the love.

u/danidevon · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This would be amazing. Because who wouldn't want an awesome LED shower head?! My bathroom is literally from the 70s and I'm slowly updating it. The shower and tiles are all the ugly greenish yellow stuff and there was a matching toilet...that was changed about a month ago! Anyway, this is just one step to making my bathroom awesome!

I'm super excited that It's the weekend! Can't wait to relax and catch up on sleep!

Thanks for the contest!!!

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Thanks for posting this contest - Hope you see lots of beautiful birds :)

u/GeauxTiger · 3 pointsr/lifehacks

if you do get a hand held thing, or these are really good too, id also recommend replacing whatever this pipe is called with a regular straight pipe, maybe 3-5 inches long, with "male" threads on both ends.

it just unscrews, you shouldnt even need any tools.

and i wouldnt bother replacing it with chrome, you hardly see it. i just got black iron. it'll cost about a dollar. get some plumbers tape too. that'll be like 50 cents. the pipe will look sorta like this when youre done

if nothing else the straight pipe stops these things from sliding down and throwing all your stuff everywhere

u/elpoco · 8 pointsr/LifeProTips

Speakman. Used it in a hotel, immediately looked up where to get one. I grew up in an older house with an absolute firehose of a showerhead - probably something like 10 GPM. Every single showerhead I'd used since was a low-flo, eco-friendly, builder's special and compared to the shower I grew up with, felt like I was being dribbled on by a pack of incontinent lap dogs. I'd shower for ages and never feel clean.

This thing is dollar for dollar the best improvement I've made to our house:

u/moxiecontin714 · 1 pointr/curlyhair

Biotin is a B vitamin and it's good for your hair skin and nails. It makes my nails and hair grow faster and my hair just looks healthier and my curls look better.

As for the filter, I have hard water (means it's full of minerals) and porous hair, so I got myself a showerhead with a charcoal filter from Amazon and I've been much less frizzy since then. There's something in the sidebar about testing the porosity of your hair, if you can't find it just respond here and I'll dig it up for you. Good luck!

u/ilikesleep · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This is also pretty useful and for me too ;)

u/SarcastiFire · 5 pointsr/financialindependence

Definitely look into the local energy audit if it is offered. We learned a lot!

For saving water, I love the Evolve ladybug adapter for the showerhead. It shuts off the water when it's warm and you restart it when you're ready.

u/IRISistable · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This is my item which has an amazon warehouse deal that evens out to 21.00. That is just 12 cents off your magic number.

You should NOT buy this for me because my current shower head is awesome. I love not having a good amount of water pressure. I am saving water right now, and since the pressure isn't enough for the shower head, it pours out of the spout, which is like a massage for me feet.

Not to mention, my long hair is just so much fun to rinse with low pressure, I really get to spend 30 minutes in the shower playing with my hair. What girl doesn't love playing with her hair?

This shower head does NOT have great reviews. 20 out if 131 people gave it only one star. It does NOT have the two settings I want, and would NOT serve its purpose brilliantly. It is NOT an excellent purchase at 21 dollars. This would NOT make my day, or my future showers amazing.

u/applegoesdown · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

Get a whole filter if you want, but are your only real issues in teh shower? If so, they make some shower heads that have filters built in. This is super easy to do, but again, just a point of fuse.

This one goes in line before yoru own head

This one replaces yoru head and has filter built in

u/blueflowers · 1 pointr/AskReddit

I purchased this one on Amazon earlier this year and it's held up pretty well. Definitely good quality for the price!

u/somewhat_pragmatic · 3 pointsr/personalfinance

While you're at it add one of these

It goes in-line with your showerhead. The way it works is simple. You know how you turn the shower on and wait for it to get hot? Well, unless you're standing right there with your hand in the water you don't know when its ready.

This device will allow water to pass through the showerhead until it heats up, then drops the stream to a trickle. This means you're not wasting gallons of expensive heated water down the drain while you brush your teeth or whatever else you do while waiting for the shower to head up.

Pull the cord and the full power of now water comes out. It automatically resets by itself ready for the same tomorrow.

u/k33bz · 4 pointsr/pics

I love the Kohler Forte personally. Home Depot sells them for around $50 but you can get them on Amazon for $35-40ish. It seems expensive but it works great.


u/mcharms · 1 pointr/Hair

Sure thing! Here is the showerhead I bought and it works great! Plenty of others out there though to try :)

u/missjackelope · 3 pointsr/Bend

I'm on a well and my water has a bunch of iron so I installed one of these and have been quite pleased. Pretty cheap and replacements aren't difficult or crazy expensive.


u/itwasntmine · 8 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Hi, thank you for your very informative input!

I'll look for that certification as suggested. Unfortunately, I'm more likely to find quality and certified products on Amazon than in my local stores where I'm not sure where they import stuff or if they are counterfeit.

For the filtered showerheads, I considered some but I'm not sure if they would perform better than a stand alone filter. What do you think?

I agree on the "point of use" filtration for the reason you mentioned and because I change my apartment frequently. As such, I need a mobile solution such as those small filters.

For my balding, I'm working into multiple solutions to slow it down, the cleanness of my bathing water is one of them.

u/ggggbabybabybaby · -1 pointsr/sex

I'm in love with my Kohler Flipside: http://www.amazon.com/KOHLER-K-15996-CP-Flipside-Showerhead-Polished/dp/B003ULNSRI/

Not that I masturbate with it but just because I being able to choose between 4 awesome spray options. This is probably too big to masturbate with.

u/iplaywithbugs · 4 pointsr/HaircareScience

If you think it might be your water, you can go here and request a hard water test strip. Many people in /r/skincareaddiction find that an in-shower filter really helps their skin and hair, like this one.

But the ingredients in your shampoo and conditioner look no bueno to me. In your shampoo there's a few silicones (which are probably causing build up) and some other questionable stuff. Casual internet browsing shows that the 1st ingredient in your conditioner is water, and the 2nd is behentrimonium chloride, which according to wikipedia is "is an irritating, toxic (to aquatic organisms), and slightly flammable yellow waxlike organic compound." I'm sure its not that bad (I'm not being sarcastic! It's probably not that bad), but there has to be better ingredients out there. Not to mention more dimethicone (6th ingredient), while the argon oil is #10, right after parfum. Awesome. So I'd switch that one out, too.

The silicones in both are probably building up in your hair making it what it is. Not all silicones are bad, but they need to be washed away now and again. I'd look in the side bar and what not to find a nice clarifying shampoo to wash out the build up, and get a good regular shampoo and conditioner.

u/iHelix150 · 5 pointsr/LifeProTips

You have the (enviable) problem of having high water pressure.

You have two options. Option one was suggested by RallyMech, that is to get a flow adjustment knob and install it before your shower head

Option two is to get a different shower head. I would encourage you to give this one a try. The center part is a higher pressure spray with smaller diameter holes, while the outside nozzles are higher diameter for a gentle rainfall. It comes with a flow restrictor installed, if you have high pressure leave it in but you can remove it if you want more flow.

I have one of these and I love it- the high pressure nozzle is good for rinsing shampoo out of hair, the low pressure mode is very relaxing and non-abrasive.

u/NeatZebra · 8 pointsr/Edmonton

Number one power user in your house would be the electric hot water tank. Can’t say I ever heard of those being used in Alberta. So it is probably your hot water use.

Some easier things:

Replace your shower heads, put in faucet aerators. https://www.efficiencyalberta.ca/residential-no-charge/products/

For showers you can also put in these things so you don’t waste hot water waiting for the shower to be warm: https://www.amazon.com/Showerheads-SS-1002CP-SB-Ladybug-Water-Saving-Shower-Head/dp/B0017YXIKC

You can set your hot water tank to only heat to a lower temperature perhaps?

And switch your laundry habits to using cold water only.

Encourage family to shower and not have baths.

Run your dishwasher full.

Also: have you been using a block heater at all? Those are energy hogs. If you need it, you could set it to only run for 3 or 4 hours before you need to drive early in the morning with a timer, and to only come on when it is extra cold with a thermostat.

Good luck!

I know your pain.... until I picked up this wonderful shower-head. It now moves with me.

Bonus: It has awesome pressure/flow.

u/whiskey-monk · 1 pointr/AskMen

A shower like this:

Anyway. I'm not actually into shower sex. Everything is too wet (not in the right way) and the water washes away any...ahem... necessary natural lubricant.

I've never explored my kinks. So I'm pretty bland at the moment. I'm a boring lover :(

A water saving showerhead costs about $15 and reduces the flow enough that most water heaters can provide unlimited hot water. Also they have a button that you can stop the water without screwing up your hot/cold knobs.

It's a great shower, nicely misted. I don't miss the wasted water.

EDIT: This is the show head I have and love As a note, you can push the button "half way" and reduce the water flow to under 1 gallon per minute.

u/gatoapestoso · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I use this one with a replaceable filter. It’s helped. I was hoping it would clear up the weird itchy scalp thing I have going on, but no luck there. I do have soft healthy hair though!

u/72skylark · 2 pointsr/DIY

Not sure how serious you were, but I think this could be achieved without any serious plumbing. If you had the cash and the skills, you could feed hot and cold through the wall to the other side of the shower. But for $75 or so you could probably get a Y adapter to split the line, an extender arm and a cheap shower head (I have this one and I love it).

I'm actually thinking of trying this now.

u/ILikeYourHotdog · 5 pointsr/blogsnark

Does anyone love their showerhead? I recently discovered mine has what looks to be black mold growing from the bottom of it where the water drips down after a shower and am thoroughly repulsed. I'd like to find a polished chrome head but one made with coated solid brass instead of the plastic 'chrome' that we currently have. I've found that most websites only allow you to search by finish instead of actual materials.

ETA: I keep coming back to this one and am tempted to go ahead and order it.

u/FuzzySlippers4Me · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I got this one a couple of months ago and I've been happy with it. It has good reviews and is decently priced. Now when I use our other shower I can smell the chlorine as soon as I turn the water on.


u/Lutya · 2 pointsr/HaircareScience

Have you tried Culligan Filtered Shower Head. It works well for me.

Edit: DevaCurl also just came out with a clarifying shampoo based on miclear water. It's really easy on the hair. That should help you wash away the hard water build up.

u/Goat-headed-boy · 5 pointsr/vandwellers

5gal. and pressurized with air.

I question the 'hot' water claim, my guess is warm at best. I keep one of these in the boot and leave it in the sun when I park. Toss it on the roof or bungee to a tree for an 'at least not shocking cold' camp shower and have $285. to spend on a few nylon fittings and a hose with a showerhead.

u/thebambiraptor · 1 pointr/curlyhair

Sure do. I bought this one and I love it. I'm sorry the link is mobile. I'm on my phone.


u/fun_director · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

Get this filtration shower faucet! It filters out chlorine and helped me and my dry skin. It's one of the best reviewed ones on Amazon.

u/Saorigameover · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I bought the Culligan one for my shower. To be honest, I haven't noticed any difference. We even got a water softener installed for the whole house and I still have not noticed any difference in either my skin or hair. I mainly got the filter for my hair because I was hoping it would reduce the frizz, but it hasn't done that either.

The only thing noticeable is how it feels to wash my hands. It feels soft, almost like you're not getting the soap all the way off.

u/findinglift · 1 pointr/Plumbing

Speakman Anystream is my favorite. Depending on what state you’re in you can get up to 2.5 gpm. In CA to you can’t ship anything over 1.8gpm. The flow restrictions are easy to take out but in small showers it’s quite a bit of water. The 2.5 seems fine, 1.8 isn’t enough.

There is a less expensive smaller version as well but this looks nice with almost any type of hardware.

u/Bananacles · 2 pointsr/InteriorDesign

I think a black light would make all of the difference in the world. Or you could find something like this LED showerhead, only not shitty.

Btw, I AM SO JEALOUS OF YOU GUYS!!!! I would love to crack out my bathroom, as I adore showering in the dark, but my bf would in no way agree to this. ;__;

u/Xabeth · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I've been looking at this one from amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0006VVN1S/ref=cm_sw_r_an_am_ap_am_us?ie=UTF8 It has great reviews and is much more reasonably priced.

u/Techfuture2 · 1 pointr/AskReddit

I have a shower head that lights up via water power and changes colors. Showers are amazing. You can buy them on amazon.

Edit: Linked!

u/PinkFreud08 · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I would recommend a filter. A fellow SCA member highly recommended this one (sorry I would link the post if I weren't on mobile):

Do you have really hard water? You could also consider a water softener if the filter doesn't do the trick. It'll be a more expensive investment, FYI.

u/Baeker · 3 pointsr/tall

Our neck thing was corroded on else I would have put one of these in myself. It's a good cheap fix.

u/RVelts · 7 pointsr/funny

I have that same one!


The trick is to remove the two layers of low-flow restrictors in the head. Originally I removed one and it was okay, but once I got the second one out of there, it was just amazing pressure.

u/FlowerFluff · 2 pointsr/FeminineNotFeminist

I loved this one when I was living in a place without a water softener.

I have a Waterpik that I absolutely love, and I don't even take out the restrictor - maybe exchange yours for a different model?

Otherwise check this one out - my fav but not handheld.

I also live in Southern California and getting a shower head with a filter (this one in particular, although they have one without the hose that's $30) really helped with the hard water and skin dryness. I use micellar water (Simple brand is good) to clean my face so no sink tap water. Humidifiers make a huge difference for your skin in the winter, too.

u/clittter · 7 pointsr/AsianBeauty

I got a showerhead filter from amazon (this one) and my skin is definitely a bit smoother after about a month

u/stonewalled87 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I always thought these colored shower heads were cool. Here is a nice hand-held one

I don't really have a shower ritual, I do shower at night instead of in the morning. I like to sleep in as much as possible plus I don't sweat that much at night so there is no real issue with no showering in the morning.

u/emeryleaf · 5 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Not at all! This one from Amazon.

The one complaint I've seen from people is that it can decrease your water pressure - I personally only have a very small decrease when the filter is getting old (3 months or so), but we have strong pressure to begin with.

On a side note, what do you think of shower filters like these? They are apparently so much easier on your skin if you have a lot of chlorine in your water as well. It can reduce the free-radical damage on your skin caused by chlorine.

u/kkmcgee · 16 pointsr/HaircareScience

Check out this shower head filter: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0006VVN1S/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_scdLBbR1WQKSW

$30 and its a decent showerhead regardless of the filter benefit. I got this when I lived in Florida with really low quality water and it helped my hair and skin enormously.

u/junewinslet · 1 pointr/curlyhair

I looked back at some of your posts, and I think you're on the right track with products and S2C, etc. Hard water is the WORST, and I saw someone else recommend this, can't vouch for it myself (we have a water softener) but if you can swing this, it should help with hard water

u/sensualsanta · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I bought a showerhead with a filter to get rid of harsh chemicals in the water. I suffer from eczema and dandruff too. Have you considered something like that?

Best low flow shower head: Delta Water Amplify 1.5g it feels like it is on the edge of a pressure washer

Does it take a long time to get hot water to your shower then you waste it? I bought one of these valves, when the water gets hot it almost stops the flow till you pull the rope. So you know when the shower water is hot. It's not good for kids cause the water may be too hot. So just be an adult about it, we tend to know where to turn the shower lever too.

Needs a filter change every 6 months, other than that it's no different from any other showerhead.

u/PseudoPsychosis · 2 pointsr/NoPoo

If you do end up staying for an extended period of time, I would look into buying one of these filtered shower heads

Otherwise look into buying a Portable Brita Pitcher

The Brita Pitcher will make you 3/4 gallon at a time. If you have some empty milk jugs you can periodically fill them with filtered water for potable use. I don't see why you would need more than 2 or 3 gallons of water to give your hair a full wash!

u/Gluetius_Maximus · 1 pointr/everymanshouldknow

This is the shower head I bought when I moved into my place.


It's filtered too. Just take out the restrictor inside and the pressure should be pretty strong. For me, the water pressure actually hurts a bit in the beginning. Once you feel the pressure is getting weaker, just change the filter.

u/Glorypants · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

I use a ladybug valve on my shower head.

  1. Turn on the water.

  2. Walk away to do something productive.

  3. Come back to warm water without wasting any.

    Edit: I should really point out that it confuses the hell out my guests if anyone stays over. "The water just turned itself off... so I used the sink."
u/HarvardCock · 2 pointsr/news

Nothing new... i've been using the same shower head for 8 years, its got a shutoff built in so you can turn down or stop the spray as needed, it puts out an incredible amount of pressure (even if your water pressure sucks) and is 100% Metal, not cheap plastic.

buy this, and you'll never be disappointed...

u/NeoNerd · 18 pointsr/skeptic

The EPA allows chlorine levels up to 4ppm (parts per million) in tap water. However, a normal swimming pool is at around this level. Most water is much lower. As a gas, chlorine becomes detectable at around 3ppm. At 30ppm, people start to cough and possibly vomit. At 60ppm lung damage happens. So unless your mother feels very ill after each shower, there's not a problem.

Even if your family are concerned, you can buy filtering faucets and shower heads for a fraction of the cost asked by this man. They cost around $25 for a shower head and about the same for a filter for a faucet. $10,000 is scam territory.
