      Day 30 complete. I might keep taking cold showers at least some of the time, but tomorrow I'm celebrating with hot water!

        Okay, so I finished the challenge. Some things I learned, I can't take a super cold shower in the winter, but I can take cool ones. I'm very glad I did this when I did, I spent a few weeks in housing with very poor hot water, I was used to taking quick cold showers, so no big deal!

                This sounds interesting! I must say I love my hot showers, but this sounds fascinating. I might to a bit more research into the benefits before I start, but this sounds like it would feel really great after a hard workout. If I decide to start this, I'll let ya'll know.

                    I completed the challenge during December, even had an ice cold one on Christmas day! Since the beginning of January I've actually only had a couple of warm showers, whilst feeling unwell, but for the most part I've stuck with the cold showers, although not as cold as during the challenge. They just leaving me feeling much more refreshed.

                      Well, I ended up giving this a go after all. 1 Day of trying it was murder, and I then I neglected doing Day 2. So, I'm kicking myself a bit for that, but I'm going to attempt to stick with this. So, restart- Day 1 of 30.

                        You may think about do it when it's a bit warmer out , will help.

                          Yeah, I thought about that, but once I put my mind to something I like to try and keep myself on track; esspecially while I'm motivated. So, now I've completed day 2 of 30 of this challenge. It actually wasn't bad, I'm not sure if it's just my water isn't getting as cold as it was in the beginning or I'm getting used to it.

                            I've been doing cold showers relatively consistently for the past 6 months or more, and I would say its helped me to improve physically and mentally.

                            However, I got sick about a month back from trying to do both shampoo and conditioner and washing the conditioner out of my hair took too long I guess so my head was getting hit by the cold water for long enough so that when I finished the shower I was shivering/shaking even after drying off for about 10 to 15 minutes. That cold shower I estimated took me about 7 to 8 minutes. A day or so later I was sick.

                            I however did not give up on cold showers but have come to the conclusion that if I am to do cold showers I cannot condition my hair. What I've started doing is doing a lukewarm/warm/semi-hot shower once or twice a week where I do condition my hair, but when I am all done with everything I blast the cold water and have it hit everywhere on my body for a minute or two. It is much more exhilarating and felt even better than a normal cold shower, probably because I was coming from an even hotter state than normal body temperature or even after a workout. I heard that this style of cold shower is one of many different styles I think, but either way thats what I've been doing since getting sick.

                              indestructiblelion Have you tried using a 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner? I personally use a 2-in-1 sampoo and conditioner Old Spice brand (I like Wolfthorn). It makes taking a shower faster. That's just my personal preference, however.

                                Ooo, yea that could work. It will have to be after I use up my current stuff but after I use it up I could give that a try.
