In terms of hair-- it can help hair behave better. It keeps moisture locked in so that your hair is softer and less frizzy. Win!!
I have noticed a tremendous difference in my hair and skin after switching from a general shower filter to a Vitamin C shower filter. Even friends and family have asked me what I'm doing differently to my hair.
How would you feel if I told you that research is even showing some of them to be carcinogenic? ECK! Just look up trihalomethanes if you're bored and want to be disturbed.
Aroma Sense Luxury Shower Head
I have tried several different shower head filters and my absolute favorite is the Large Aroma Sense Handheld Shower Head. It's very much like a rain shower head which means it is so zen. The water feels and sounds very peaceful and relaxing so it has a great spa-like quality to it, but don't worry--- it has great water pressure!
Just know that it does NOT come with a hose if you get the handheld variety, but it fit nicely onto the one I already had. If you do not have a handheld hose and fixture, you may want to get this Shower Head Hose and Bracket or you can buy the fixed wall mounted Vitamin C shower head.
If you really want aromatherapy in your shower, try diffusing in your bathroom. I love using the TheraPro diffuser from Young Living or adding essential oils to my bath products such as 10 drops of lavender per oz to my favorite shampoo or making my own body wash.
Or consider making shower bombs using high quality essential oils like these.
If you already have a shower head that you love, then you may want to get the Sonaki Fresh In-line Shower Filter This Vitamin C water filter simply attaches to your pre-existing shower head and it's so easy to use!
I recommend this product over the Sonaki Vitamin C shower heads because the Sonaki shower head we purchased was, um, well... sucky at directing the flow of water. I am not sure if it was mineral/water deposits or a problem with the shower head itself, but half of a dozen of the holes within the shower head would direct water sideways rather than downward which was definitely not relaxing or zen like.
Just like the AromaSense, the filters for any Vitamin-C filter need to be replaced around every 3 months. However, what is nice about this in-line filter is that you can see the level of the Vitamin C so you know when you need to change it.
I hope that these suggestions help you on your quest for optimal health and beauty! And if you are wondering about more DIY hair ideas-- I have some coming your way in 2016!
*Disclaimer: I received the AromaSense Vitamin C filter for free in return for an honest review. And you all know that I'm always honest! I never recommend anything that I don't love and use regularly!
