Showerhead filtration systems: What they are, how they work and how they can benefit you

Showering. It's part of our everyday routine. But more than just a means to getting clean, showering is the first step to taking care of your skin and hair. Clean, soft water that is free of chemicals like chlorine can be the difference between soft, smooth skin and dry skin that flakes and itches. Transform your shower and skin care routine by installing a showerhead filtration system.

BENEFITS OF SHOWER HEAD FILTERS

When you protect yourself from the harsh effects of hard water and chlorine, you'll be rewarded with:

  • Increased skin moisture, no more dryness, flaking or itching
  • Soft, manageable hair
  • Reduced fading of color-treated hair
  • Enhanced pH balance

WHAT'S REMOVED

As water streams through the showerhead, the filter will trap contaminants like these and prevent them from harming your skin and hair:

  • Chlorine taste and odor
  • Heavy metals
  • Hydrogen sulfide
  • Iron
  • Dirt and sediment
  • VOCs
  • Sulfur odor - no more rotten egg smell

STYLE AND DESIGN

Inline, handheld sprayer, or fixed head are the three showerhead filter styles available on the market today, and each removes unwanted contaminants that are hard on skin and hair. Bonus: Find one with a finish to match your bathroom's decor - options include chrome, gold, and white so your filter will look just as good as it feels

Inline filters

A great option because they easily attach to your existing showerhead, inline filters cost less than a showerhead with built-in filter. If you love your current showerhead but want the benefits of filtered water, an inline filter is a great solution. These are great for apartment dwellers wanting to purify their water without investing in a new showerhead.

Fixed showerhead

Showerhead and filter in one, this style replaces your existing shower head. With different spray settings like massage, mist and rain, they offer an exceptional shower experience.

Handheld sprayer

With all the advantages of a fixed showerhead, a handheld sprayer comes with the added benefit of holding it in your hand for directional control. A great option when it comes time to bathe kids and pets, you can also customize its stationary position to accommodate tall people.

DOLLARS AND CENTS

An economical way to make a noticeable difference, shower head filter prices start at $22, but even the most sophisticated systems only cost about $100. Replacement filters usually need to be installed every six months, but at an average price of $20, it's still a small investment in the care and wellbeing of your body's largest organ.
