The chlorine in our public water supply works as a disinfectant so we can safely drink the water. But when it comes to taking a shower, that same chlorine can have a not-so-nice effect on your skin and hair.
Why a Chlorine Shower Filter?
1. You have dry hair
Blow drying, straightening, perming, coloring, and curling damages your hair. Chlorine in the water dries your hair and can damage its protective outer layer. Dull hair and unwelcome split ends can be the result.
2. You have dry skin
The combination of warm or hot water in your shower plus chlorine in the water strips the natural oils from your skin. This can cause dry, flaky, and even itchy skin.
3. You have color-treated hair
After an expensive day at the salon, and even if you do-it-yourself at home, you want your hair coloring to last as long as possible. The coloring process can leave your hair more porous and more susceptible to fading from the effects of chlorine.
4. You are sensitive to chlorine
If you have sensitive skin or negative reactions to chlorine, removing it from your daily shower can help reduce one source of irritation.
