Guys, I feel like I need to address something here. It's come to my attention through an unofficial office poll that many, many households are still showering with a stationary shower head and I feel it's my duty to tell you you're missing out.

Here are the things I love about my removable shower head:

  • It's adjustable so people of different heights can shower comfortably.
  • It's a snap to aim water to a specific area of the tub (without getting it all over the bathroom). This is especially helpful when cleaning and rinsing the shower.
  • It's so much easier to give my dog a bath and rinse all the shampoo out of her fur (by getting the nozzle really close to her). I imagine this would also be great for kids.
  • I can get the water flow close to my own head when rinsing out heavy conditioner to make sure it's all gone.
  • I can fill a tall bucket with hot water by setting it in the tub. I can't do this in my shallow sink.
  • I can spray my boyfriend in the face after he scares me by yelling "boo" while I'm in the shower.

I'll even make it easy for you. Here are four great-rated and not-too-pricy hand held shower heads for your consideration:
