Water runs from shower head a number of times when shower is not in use
If its a trickle occasionally its normal, when you turn off shower the water is still in pipe right up to shower head, it cools down, contracts and backs away from the head, when house gets warmer water expands up to the shower head and trickles out.

A shower head will drip for a period of time but I will assume that it is dripping continually. Servicing the Mixing Valve is what is needed to fix the continual drip. there are several 'O' rings washers that eventually wear down causing problems. These parts are serviceable and kits with instructions can be purchased at plumbing shops, DIY Stores, Hardware Stores. I hope this has helped thanks for using FIXYA. Good luck and have a great day.

Testimonial: "THANKS FOR YOUR HELP I WILL TRY THAT"
SOURCE: triton electric shower runs cold
hi it sounds as though the thermostat has gone on top of the can assembly, or moreover it has scaled up & the element needs replacing, if thats the case your better off buying a new unit as the cost of the can assembly & the fitting it will be nearly as much, plus witha new unit you'll be getting a 2 yr guarantee?
Just a thought!

I will have to assume this issue developed and was not present at first use after the initial installation.
There are generally only two reasons for your problem. The first is that the diverter mechanism is simply wearing out and/or broken. The second it that there is a foreign object preventing it from doing its job correctly. Either way the diverter must come out. I have provided a couple of links below that should help get it out.
Once out, put a wadded up towel over the end of the tub spout opening so as to prevent any water from coming out of it. Then, for just a moment, turn your shower on full and adjust your temperature from full cold to full hot. This process should dislodge any foreign matter and send it out the opening the diverter came out of and also will probably get you wet. I usually plug the tub so I can catch what, if anything, comes out. Having a second person holding a bowl over the diverter opening helps reduce the water splash.
Rinse off the diverter and reinstall it. Turn the shower on and see if there is any difference in how much water comes out the spout while in the shower mode. If nothing has changed then the next step is to replace the diverter.
The diverter assembly part number is A603819
