    As soon as I walk into the shower, I make sure my hand is covering that shower head. That cold water nonsense is for crazies. Seriously, cold water is what they use at the nut houses.

    It's proven to be healthy and people still won't do it because they are in their comfort zone or scared of the temperatures.

    Here's something I've found and I am going to be doing it for a month and see how it goes.

    Another thing is the steam from hot showers can be bad for you because you are breathing the chlorine from it.

    [QUOTE]How many of us can actually say that we take regular cold showers? If you’re from a colder climate, the number is likely to be even less. However, cold showers and baths have a long history in many cultures, and for good reason. Vincenz Priessnitz, a farmer in the 1920s, developed and marketed a medical treatment he called hydrotherapy. He sold the concept of using cold water to cure a long list of aliments, and achieved almost instant success. As the 20th century moved along however, the popularity of hydrotherapy began to decline and falter when medical professionals began to rely more on drugs to treat illnesses and the luxury of hot showers began to increase. However, the use of hydrotherapy as a viable medical treatment never completely stopped. Here are 10 of the many reasons why:

    1. Strengthens Immunity

    not sure about the testosterone stuff but they are healthier for your skin and hair, muscle fatigue/soreness. overall feels great. just have to get used to the first 3 minutes or so just standing under the cold water. after that it just feels numb

    I've been doing cold showers for the last couple months and can vouch for the effects on skin and hair. Cold water doesn't strip the oil away.
