People have different opinions about a woman who told them why she only showers twice a week.

Jake Gyllenhaal, Taylor Swift, Ashton Kutcher, and Mila Kunis have all recently said that they didn’t take a shower frequently.

The star of “Brokeback Mountain” says he doesn’t feel the need to wash, while the singer of “Shake It Off” said she doesn’t wash her legs.

While Kutcher and Kunis think that taking a shower is “pointless” unless they are really dirty.

Now, a woman is viral on TikTok because she showed how she takes a shower.

TikToker Allison says she only showers twice a week and was surprised to learn that some people shower every day.

She explains to her followers:

So I’ve recently found out that I am in fact a gross human being.

This is because most girls when they say that they wash their hair twice a week they literally mean wash their hair – and they shower every day.

I only shower once or twice a week. I’ve gone five days without showering before.

She continues:

If I’m getting in the shower, I’m going to wash my hair.

Why would I get in the shower and not wash my hair? But I don’t want to wash my hair every day.

So I’ve had to start saying that I ‘wash my hair twice a week’ – but I only shower twice a week.

Allison’s confession, which has been seen 7.3 million times, has gotten mixed reactions on social media, with some people wondering why she only showers twice a week.

One user says:

No way you just posted this information about yourself.

Someone else suggests:


Another explains:

I legit will not lay in my bed if I’m not showered and in clean clothes.

A fourth adds:

Once or twice a week is crazy how are y’all agreeing with this.


I get not showering for one or two days but a whole week? There’s no way,

comments someone else.

Others, on the other hand, agree with her and praise Allison for speaking up about it.

Someone says:

Showering is tiring so yeah totally relate.

Another adds:

Finally someone said it I’m sorry.


I’ve been there and I do it too, if I’m not dirty I’m not showering. If my hair is dirty then I’m showering,

confesses a third.

One person admits:

Yuppp. Showering feels like such a chore.

A fifth writes:

THANK YOU for talking about this. showering is so exhausting!! How do people do it so much???

Allison later posted a second video in which she talked about the comments she’d gotten.

She tells her followers:

I think it goes to show that this is more common than people think.

I’m sure there are people who don’t shower and smell, but I don’t smell and I don’t need to wash my hair, so why would I shower?

She also said that she bought a shower cap because someone said she should.

A source says that there is no “one size fits all” answer to the question of how many times a week you should shower.

Many doctors say a daily shower is fine for most people,

the source says.

But for many people, two to three times a week is enough and may be even better to maintain good health.

It depends on your lifestyle.
