We have discussed about the different types of Shower Heads that are currently used by users:

1. Fixed Shower Head

As the name suggests, a fixed shower head is attached to a shower arm which is attached to a shower arm that comes out of the wall. You can change a fixed shower head by simply unscrewing the old one and then installing a new one. This is one of the cheapest shower heads and can offer you basic water flow.

You can this type of shower head as a fixed shower head but once you take it out of its cradle, you can use it to bathe your pets, kids, wash tubs and shower walls, and so on. It is really flexible and comes in different lengths which makes it really convenient to use.

This type of shower heads use as little as 1 gpm and can help you greatly in conserving water and water bill. This type of shower head is aerated so it feels like they are pouring out more water and it works great in low water pressure conditions.

4. Massage or Spray Shower Head

This type of shower head offers different spray patterns like pulse, rain, jet, and so on but not all spray patterns are as effective or convenient as the other patterns.

I first found out about these when I was reading some reviews at KitchenGuyd.

5. Rain Shower Head

This is an overhead shower head which resembles rainfall so you have to stand directly beneath it to be able to use it.

This type of shower head distributes water evenly through its wide shower head and is ideal for users who have high water pressure available. This type of showerhead is quite popular among most users.

6. Dual Shower Head

If you want the best of both the worlds, then dual shower head is the perfect match for you. This type of shower head comes in different shapes and sizes and some are integrated so that they look like a fixed shower head but you can pull out the inside piece to be used as a shower wand.

7. Body Sprayer

Another interesting type of shower head is the body sprayer which requires a special shower valve and spray bodies to be installed inside the wall. They can be integrated only when you are remodeling your bathroom but once it is done, you can use it independently or with your shower head. This would require a lot of planning so you have to plan ahead if you wish to use this.
