    I wash my hair in warm and during my final rinse I dial back to lukewarm, or cold if I can stand it (I usually can't). But my skin doesn't get babied as much as my hair so once it's bunned up with conditioner, there's steam jetting out of the shower. I love scalding hot showers.

    Warm enough to be pleasant, not hot enough to be scalding.

    As hot as the water heater can make. It's thermostat is turned down to the lowest setting which I don't remember at the moment but is still quite warm. I hate cold water

    Warm. I don't like it too hot or too cold.

    I am awful and wash my hair in very warm to hot water. I know it's bad, so I always do my final rinse with cool water.

    Still pretty accurate. If I'm washing my scalp only, I'm even more careful with the heat because the water will be running down my face for several minutes.
