Woman Leaves People Divided After Admitting She Only Showers Twice A Week



A woman has stunned social media users after revealing that she only showers when she wants to wash her hair - which is twice a week.

Allison - who goes by the handle @abmccarthy5757 on TikTok - posted a video on the social media platform explaining why she thought her shower routine was perfectly normal.


The 27-year-old from Boston said: "So I've recently found out that I am in fact a gross human being and 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. Because if I'm getting in the shower, I'm going to wash my hair," she continued.

Check out Allison's TikTok below:


"Why would I get in the shower and not wash my hair? But I don't want to wash my hair every day. I've had to start saying that I wash my hair twice a week - but I only shower twice a week," she concluded.

The TikToker's clip went viral on the video-sharing app and has amassed 6.2 million views and 841.3K likes. It has also sparked a debate amongst tens of thousands of online users who couldn't decide what to make of Allison's bold confession.

One critic wrote: "She literally has NO excuse for not showering, she has a skincare routine, gym routine, works as a NURSE, like bffr."

Another also said: "I CANNOT go 24 hours without showering. I refuse to believe this is real."

A third chimed in and commented: "Nooooooo how do you sleep feeling so grimey from the outside???? No!!!"

Meanwhile, some users didn't see anything wrong with showering twice a week, with one person declaring: "Girl same. these comments are wild. Natural body oils [are] a good thing. Y'all showering every day must be stinky people without it."


Another interjected: "Fr like hair washing and special events like going out w friends only. I ain’t showering every day just to go to work or college."

Lastly, one more user stated: "THANK YOU for talking about this. showering is so exhausting!! how do people do it so much???

In a follow-up video, Allison hilariously said that she was "bullied" into purchasing a shower cap on Amazon because some of the commenters were "ruthless".


Many doctors have said that a daily shower is fine for most people - and that more could start to cause skin problems, according to WebMD.

They added that two to three times a week is sufficient in maintaining good health, however "it depends in part on your lifestyle. Someone who spends hours in the hot sun working in the yard or running or biking, will likely need to bathe more often than someone who’s cool and indoors".
