I Bought a Water Filter - So Glad I Did!!

I recently bought a really nice water filter for less than $40 (there was a sale). I like the results - my hair seems to need less product to get the same results, my hair cuticle feels smoother, and today my hubby mentioned how pretty my hair looks:toothy4:. For the price it seems well worth it for any one interested in giving a bit more pampering to their hair.

I wrote more about it here - and also included some information about the brand I bought - along with a few hair pics:).

    I'm glad you've had such great results! I wish it were an option for me, as I'm pretty sure the water here is killing my hair, but I live in a dorm so putting a filter up isn't an option

    Darn! Yeah, I suppose being in a dorm makes it tuff. The only other option I can suggest - if you really want to try to use better water on your hair - is using distilled water.

    When my hair was much longer I used to buy two gallons of distilled water and wash with it. You only need to do it a few times before you figure out just how much you need for each process - your shampoo and for your conditioner. It's not the most convenient way, but it is definitely a good option, especially if you have hard water.

    Ok....now when I get some extra money I'm going to have to buy a couple of these for my son and I. Since I won't drink the tap water I'm pretty sure I shouldn't be putting it on my hair!!
