    16 Shower Heads That'll Make Getting Clean So Much Better

    Bathing is super important, so why not have some highly rated shower heads that'll get the job done?

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A classic shower head equipped with a high-pressure rainfall massage, because every shower should be lowkey spa time.


    Promising review: "This thing is simply amazing, I have just a trickle of water at my place and I have tried five different heads and this one blows them all out of the water. It didn't turn my shower into a massager or anything but it puts out a six-inch circle of very well pressurized water. I have very thick hair and those of you with this issue know how awful low water pressure can be. I got the first decent shower I've had in a month. It really did everything everyone else's review said. I highly suggest this shower head." β€”Nazzari

    Get it from Amazon for $26.98.

    2. A handheld shower head with a handy hose so you can get all those suds off your body efficiently.


    Promising review: "It's very easy to install and functions great after a year. I've noticed a bit of discoloration on the top where the water comes out, but overall I'm still very pleased." β€”Taren

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in two colors).

    3. A massage shower head with seven different settings that'll get you nice and loosened up after your workout.


    Promising review: "What I like the most is the easy-to-use hose. We are senior citizens and the easy use of the cord and head is really nice. We put one in each bathroom because we were so pleased with the first purchase. The sequence of the spray selections should be changed so that the first selection should go to the end of the line. Also, the shutoff switch that stops the water flow needs to be less efficient because if you have one of the gas water heaters that supply constant hot water, it will shut off when you activate the nozzle head shutoff switch. I still give the shower head 5 stars, though." β€”James R. Lane

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in three colors).

    4. A luxurious rainfall shower with an adjustable extension arm to finally wash your hair like those models in all the shampoo commercials.


    Promising review: "This shower head has a chrome finishing that gives a mirror-like appearance (that does not fog), which is extremely beautiful. This is actually extremely useful and helps me multi-task in the mornings as I can hop in the shower and look at the shower head to floss my teeth. The adjustable shower arm allows you to rotate the shower head (which is great for when I am getting my back teeth during flossing) to your comfort. My shower arm was installed not relatively high and I am 6'2" and have no issues with being too close to the shower head." β€”Andres

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    5. A high and low rain shower head with a removable water restrictor so you can really feel like you're bathing underneath a tropical waterfall.


    Promising review: "Best shower head upgrade ever! I did not expect this shower head to be so beautiful in the bathroom and relaxing at the same time. It was easy to install and a simple improvement to the bathroom and now I feel like I have a five-star hotel bathroom right in my own home. The water flow is perfect. It's truly a spa experience. It's nice that it came with spare parts and a 13.5-inch arm because I'm able to aim the shower head directly down rather than angled. This is what makes this shower head great because when it's aimed directly down you feel the water flow evenly crashing down on your head like a true rain experience." β€”AXyooi

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99.

    6. A rain shower head because you absolutely deserve rest and relaxation on a Sunday before the work week starts all over again.


    Promising review: "I wanted more of a soft, rainfall-like flow with greater coverage and this shower head kit is it. Super easy to install and everything you need is in the box. You don't need to run to the store to get any extra parts. Installation was a breeze, the manual was easy to follow and did it myself in 10 minutes. Overall I'm very pleased with this shower head and should have done it a lot sooner." β€”Semos

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99.

    7. A chrome shower head that has dope LED lights so every shower can be lit AF.


    Promising review: "Great water pressure and looks really cool while it lights up. Very good quality shower head, even if it did not light up." β€”Nick

    Get it from Walmart for $20.99.

    8. An adjustable shower head with three settings and a dual mode because it's truly better where it's wetter.


    Promising review: "When we opened the box I was amazed at the size of both shower heads. We have had it installed for a few days now and we love it. Our hot water tank can't seem to keep up with the amount of hot water we use because the pressure is amazing. It came with a sticky pad to be able to move the smaller shower head down and I love that option to help hit our back while the big one is still on." β€”Krystal

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    9. A push control shower head to really raise the bar to any and every rainfall shower you've had thus far.


    Promising review: "This is literally the best shower head I've ever had in my life! Even in the rain shower, the shampoo is easily rinsed out of my long hair. So great, plus on rollback so I bought one for all four bathrooms." β€”Kimber

    Get it from Walmart for $26.99.

    10. A Waterpik, chrome rainfall shower head (which is totally adjustable!!) that'll be perfect for anyone with low ceilings but who still wants to have their Hilary Duff moment while they're getting clean.

    Bed Bath and Beyond

    Promising review: "Waterpik Rainshower is a real improvement on traditional shower heads. The extendable arm is my favorite part. With most shower heads you have to practically lean against the wall to get wet. I like being able to stand completely under the shower rather than having to keep turning to get wet all over. The arm is adjustable so if someone is six feet tall they can enjoy a shower without ducking. Waterpik has made showering fun again." β€”Pinky T

    Get it from Bed Bath and Beyond for $24.99.

    11. A chrome shower head with self-cleaning nozzles because who wants to scrub grit, grime, and old soap every so often? Literally no one!


    Promising review: "This is exactly what I wanted in a shower head. I get plenty of water without wasting it, though I could stay in the shower for a lot longer. It was extremely easy to install, and I am not a do-it-yourselfer by any means. It didn't take me longer than five minutes to get the old one off and this new one on." β€”MayryChatt

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    12. A shower head with a whopping 28 settings to satisfy your need (and desperate want) for variety.


    Promising review: "This is the absolute best shower head(s) I have ever used. Simple to install, nothing to it. Has several choices for spray and you can have the handheld and the shower head on at the same time. My husband loves it. We have lived in many places in Europe and the states and this is the best I have used." β€”sargeret

    Get it from Walmart for $16.99.

    13. A sleek Speakman shower head for optimizing any home or apartment with low water pressure (which is just fancy talk for saying you won't be showering with little drops, but with a full stream of water when it's time to bathe).

    Bed Bath & Beyond

    Promising review: "I have low water pressure in the top floor of my home. This shower head greatly improved the shower." β€”Mwood62

    Get it from Bed Bath and Beyond for $33.99+ (available in three colors).

    14. A medical shower head for folks who need their showers to be reliable and accessible at the same time.


    Promising review: "After knee surgery, I have to sit on a bath bench to shower. Well, I'd never used a hand-held shower before, and I'm in love! It saves so much water, allows for directed wetting and rinsing, and works beautifully. I'll never go back to a normal shower head!" β€”Marcia Purse

    Get it from Amazon for $14.25.

    15. A filtered shower head that'll soften the hard water you've been bathing with, because having dry skin and hair just isn't what you signed up for!


    Promising review: "I live in Tampa Bay and the water is extremely hard here, so I ordered this shower head and filter because of the great reviews, and these reviews weren't lying. I could tell the difference after the first shower: My skin and hair were softer, a very noticeable difference. I recommend this product fully, especially if you live in an area with hard water, you will be able to tell the difference within the first two minutes." β€”Jim Wise

    Get it from Amazon for $47.85.

    16. A magnetic handheld shower head with multiple settings so you can finally hit that sore spot on your back that has been bothering you for weeks.


    Promising review: "Super easy to install; good water flow, and I love the push button feature. SO much easier than trying to turn the shower head to a different setting with wet, soapy fingers! The magnet is super strong; the shower head snaps right back into place when you hold it close to the magnetic dock." β€”denden

    Get it from Amazon for $59.98.
