For those who don’t mind a water line hanging in the way and enjoy having control over the direction of the water flow, a handheld shower is a convenient option.

Not only is it easy to wash yourself off but it is ridiculously convenient for parents and pet owners.

Many handheld shower heads give you the option of a stationary shower head with the mobility of a wand allowing you to direct the water virtually anywhere in the shower.

With so many different options and styles to choose from, the choices are many but if you’re looking for the best handheld shower head, you can conduct your research here and find the one that fits your bathroom style and overall needs.

Here’s a few that we recommend.

I have this one installed in our kids bathroom and it’s hands down, the best handheld shower head we have ever used.  And we’ve been using it for almost five years with ZERO issues.

It’s absolutely perfect for our house.

The water comes out beautifully and provides full coverage.  Especially when you have it set to full body spray.

What I love about this shower head is the wand that detaches from the main shower head.  And the hose is long enough for us to rinse off our kids and dog without having them turn around.

Don’t be discourage with the ABS plastic.  As I already mentioned, we have been using this continuously for 5 years without any issues.

Features:

  • Diameter/width: The shower head has a diameter of 5″ x 5.5″.
  • Water Flow: Provided you have sufficient water pressure, this unit has great water flow and full body coverage.
  • Spray: There are 3 actual shower settings not including the pause feature: fast massage, full spray with massage, and full body spray.
  • Flow Rate: 2.5 GPM
  • Finishes: This unit comes in two finishes, chrome and Delta’s stainless which looks like a nickel finish.
  • Warranty: Limited warranty.  Check Delta’s website for details.

What We Like:

  • Has the appearance of a fixed shower head.  Handheld shower heads typically look like a handheld, with small shower heads.  This unit detaches from a fixed portion so you have the option for the water to come from above and from the wand.
  • It’s a Delta, one of the most recognizable and most reputable brands.

The 58480 In2ition is a newer version of the 58467.

Calling it an upgrade is debatable but like its older cousin, it is incredibly convenient with its detachable wand.

The main differences with this one are the design and the shower settings: H2OKinetic, Full Body, Full Spray with Massage, Massaging, and Pause.

Their H2OKinetic Technology is simply another way the shower head is engineered to produce a spray that makes it appear

It’s also made of plastic which some have any issue with.  However, it is still durable and comes highly recommended.

Features:

  • Diameter/width: The shower head has a diameter of 6 7/8″.
  • Water Flow: Despite the 2 GPM, there is plenty of water providing more than enough coverage.
  • Spray: You get 5 shower settings : Full Spray, Massage Spray, Full Spray with Massage, Slow Massage, Pause.
  • Flow Rate: 2.0 GPM
  • Finishes: The shower head comes in five finishes, Chrome, Champagne Bronze, Polished Nickel, Venetian Bronze,  and Brilliance Stainless.
  • Warranty: Limited warranty.  Check Delta’s website for details.

What We Like:

  • Like the 58467 model, the detachable wand is an attractive feature and makes this unit stand out from the rest of the other shower heads.

Despite having plastic components and aluminum plating, the shower head is very durable and will last you a long time.

The Hansgrohe Raindance S 120 AIR 3-Jet is an elegant shower head that fuses water and air to create an invigorating shower.

There are plenty of air injected shower heads to choose from and most will provide the sensation you would expect from an air injected shower head, however, the Hansgrohe provides everything your’re going to need: elegance, reputable name, and a shower that you’re guaranteed to enjoy.

I used this shower head before I discovered the Delta.  It was in one of my old houses that I use to live in which is now rented.  I can tell you from experience that the shower head alone makes a tremendous improvement in your bathroom and the feeling of the aerated water is unlike no other.   Several years later, the tenants can’t stop telling me how great the shower looks and feels.

Features:

  • Diameter/width: 4.5″ diameter.
  • Water Flow: Even with the air injection, you get a tremendous amount of water flow.
  • Spray: You get 3 shower settings : AIR, Whirl AIR, Balance AIR.
  • Flow Rate: 2.5 GPM
  • Finishes: Unfortunately, this only comes in a chrome finish.
  • Warranty: It comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
