My dd is 5 and she showers by herself no help from me or her dad. Her hair is about shoulder-blade length and pretty thick but she washes it herself.

She is 7 and still needs help with certain parts of body.  I let her have alone time to wash her body and then we help with her hair and spot check body.

Well my son is 5 and I still do his hair. He does his body and he rinses everything all by himself but I do the actual shampooing.
