        I have copper pipes and taking a bath is fine (water fills up quickly and lots of pressure) however as soon as I turn on the shower, it’s just barely there. I have really long thick hair and I cannot even wash it taking a shower — I’m leaning over the tub. What can I do? Also, the hot water runs out very quickly and I’m standing in the cold water. Any assistance or advice would be great!

          take the shower head off . look inside the part that hooks to the arm [chrome rod coming out of wall leave hooked to] see
          if it is stopped-up. if you see a rubber washer with 3 small holes in ,take a small screwdriver and take it out.make sure you use pipe dope or plumber tape onit when you re install
