A Shower Filter can keep you from losing hair

Text: Carole P. Mason

WHY FILTER YOUR SHOWER WATER?

Shower filters protect your health and the health of your hair and can actually keep you from losing hair. They remove chlorine from the water and the steam that envelops your body each time you take a shower. They soften the water to reduce soap scum and hard water deposits. They also reduce rust and other oxidized minerals in your shower water. Chlorine, soap scum, hard water and oxidized minerals are all hard on hair and can damage the scalp and clog the pores of our present hair and inhibit new hair growth. The better question is "Why wouldn't we filter our shower water?"

HOW IS CHLORINE HARMFUL?

We take in up to 10 times more chlorine and other chemicals from showering than from drinking water, and the American Journal of Public Health has documented a link between chlorine and breast, colon and bladder cancer, and has listed showering as a major percentage of this harmful exposure. When chlorine vaporizes, it combines with other airborne particles in your shower to form a chloroform gas, which can be a contributor to asthma and other respiratory problems. The US Environmental Protection Agency confirms that due to chlorine in our shower water, there is an elevated level of chloroform gas in almost every home in America today. That statistic alone is frightening. Losing hair is just one of the results of harmful chlorine we can see. It appears that it is just part of the array of health issues we face from our environment on a daily basis.

FILTERED WATER IS SOFTER ON HAIR AND SKIN

More noticeable than health hazards are the cosmetic benefits of using a shower filter. By removing the chemicals from your shower water, you notice softer skin and hair right away. Swimming in a chlorinated pool or using a chlorinated jacuzzi or hot tub noticeably leaves your skin drier, causing flaky and itchy skin and sometimes rashes. Showering in filtered water is less drying and allows both skin and hair to retain moisture
