Shower problems

When I use the shower the temperature of the water is fine when it is running, but when I turn on the shower head I have to adjust it to get hotter because the water is rerally cold coming out of the shower head itself. So then when I shut off the shower to let the water run it is wicked hot because I just had to turn it up on the shower to make the temperature just right. If anyone now's of this problem or how to fix it I would appreciate the help. Thanks.

It would help if you could tell us Brand and if possible model of valve.

The type of shower taps I have are crane, and I don't now what type of valve they are. Now I have noticed that the hot water tap is out further from the wall then the cold water one. This was installed already when we bought the house.
