SOURCE: shower too hot
I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
Your question seems to be how to adjust the temperature of a shower valve?
I'm going to assume this is a single handle faucet. Most are adjustable under the handle. This is the responsibility of the installer but sometimes they forget and you can't get them back. Anyway this requires a little mechanical ability and a few tools.
First be sure to turn off the water to the faucet, then remove the handle (allen wrench or small screw driver). Most have a temp. adjustment ring right there. Simply pull out, rotate and replace. With some you have to remove the sleeve or bonnet under the handle to expose the adjustment fitting. Reasemble and turn on. It is not uncommon to have to do this two or three times before the customer is happy with the setting. The adjustment fittings usually don't have tenp. setting numbers to go by so it might take a few tries.

It could be possible you require more water volume, so take off both panels on youur water heater and check what temp. they are at.
I know I discovered the hard way there are 2 heaters and 1 of mine was low,good luke.

changing the shower head will not do anything.to do what you want,you would need more BTU's or a bigger unit to supply more water,someone may be hogging the water also.
