We owe our lives and our livelihoods to two things—coffee and our showers (not necessarily in that order)—for getting us going on those days in which we just can’t even. You know those mornings, right? You feel like you just walked off the set of The Walking Dead and you can’t believe people are going to count on you to “adult” for eight hours until you step into that shower and, ahhhhh. All is right with the world. That’s why a showerhead isn’t a showerhead. You don’t want one of those wimpy ones or one of the ones that feel like it’s taking your epidermis right off either. There is a happy medium. There are a lot of other factors that go into choosing the best showerheads too, such as ease in installing, ability to stay clean, and more. Read on for 10 of the best showerheads on the market. Your productivity will thank you, as no one likes to start his or her day with an unsatisfactory shower.

Conservationists who also appreciate style will love this showerhead, as it manages to have a powerful stream while its sophisticated air intake system allows for use of about 30 percent less water.
