Water shutting down during shower

I have the weirdest thing happen every time i take a shower. It never fails every day as i am showering and getting ready for work the water shuts down and is down for about 5-10 seconds. Then kicks back on . But god forbid if you need to shave or soak in the hot water for a few minutes longer than normal, it will do it again but now for around 1 full minute. It never fails to go off at the time you are standing there with shampoo in your hair. Thinking it is snowing really bad outside and i am not rinsing my hair in the toilet, WHAT the heck am i going to do now. And the after you panick it kicks back on. Any one have a fix in mind for this problem. I have a electric hot water heater. It is well water.

If your on a well check your preasure tank, if it is a bladder tank and has no air in it it will cause the pump to short cycle and after so many times it can trip the thermal overload in the pump or in the control box and that will cause your short water outage. If not that check your preasure switch, if the points look burnt just replace it.

Hope one of these works for ya...
