    My skin is sensitive to heat so I shower in relatively cool water (lukewarm/warm). It has nothing to do with hair; I would wash it in any temperature that I preferred. My skin just happens to dictate here.

    ETA: If I'm saunaing, I shower in cool water, and the final rinse is even cooler.

    Lol, I wish I could do that, it's supposed to be good for skin and stuff but I'm such a chicken for such things, even if the bad feeling lasts only a few minutes or seconds I want to avoid it. DH actually goes in and out of the sauna 3 times and jumps in a natural water pool... and that's at night, in winter. He only stays a short time, and then just washes his face and arms, but still. I can't
    He has very nice hair but that's another topic. He's got good genes anyways.

    After being in the sauna, I could actually stay in the cool shower forever! It feels sooo good, but I have to conserve the space in our dirty water tank, haha.

    Not "burning", but warmest I can get it, as in "still comfortable on the skin" warm.
    WCC method (washing) --- Rinse-out oil (MO) --- LOC/LCO method (styling)

    Warm - my body would prefer hot and I would prefer barely warm for my hair, so warm is a nice compromise. My skin is also happier if it's not hot (though if I'm still feeling a bit cold by the end of the warm shower, I'll do a quick hot rinse on my body with my hair out of the way, then be quick to moisturise well afterwards).
    Growing back to calf with hopefully some semblance of a hemline.
    Picky scalp but easygoing hair, thank goodness
