Most people may not realize how hard water can be on their hair, especially when living in Southern California. The water there is extremely hard, filled with chlorine and can strip the hair of its natural oils causing it to become parched and brittle which can result in breakage. Not only is the un-filtered water stripping the hair it can also make your skin become drier too. Chlorine (along with other chemicals, like fluoride) are added to your water supply as cleaning agents and disinfectants, but they can actually be super bad for your hair, body, and skin as they kill flora and dry everything out. So I found a solution that will help minimize this problem. The Hotel Spa Filtered Showerhead. The shower head removes all of that from your shower water, along with heavy metals, bacteria, and pesticides.
