LET'S TALK SHOWER FILTERS
Do you need one? YES!
are they worth it? absolutely!
Now LET'S start with the maybe-not-so-basics.
You filter your drinking water, right? I really hope that's a yes.
So if you think about the water that comes out of your facet, it's not any different than the water that comes out of your showerhead. All the minerals, chlorine, iron, rust, and lord knows what else is showering your hair, face, and body. literally your largest organ is getting rained on with garbage every day. gross right? Not only is it totally gross to think about, but it's also a contributing factor to your color fading, your blonde turning brassy, your skin breaking out, and your body thirsting for hydration.
I've used a shower filter for almost 3 years now and never looked back. My first year of using a shower filter, I was living at my parent's house and showering with well water. My dad would treat the well (with bleach which I'm was greattt for my hair and skin) and they had a water softener (again, I'm sure that was greattt), but that wasn't enough. I couldn't handle it, my skin was breaking out and my blonde hair was turning brassy. I finally gave in and I purchased my first filter. IMMEDIATELY I saw results.
I now live in the city where my water is heavily chlorinated, and that's its own nightmare. I upgraded my shower filter to the Raindrops by Nine Zero One and it's definitely my favorite. I love the chrome finish and the large showerhead. I also love that my water pressure isn't affected. If you love your showerhead but just want the filter, this option is for you. If you're looking for a more budget-friendly purchase, my OG was the Aquasana AQ. It's not as pretty, but it still gets the job done.
don't let the price tag scare you away, the small price is worth the amazing results!
