Hard water, while seemingly innocuous, can pose significant dangers to the health and appearance of your hair. Laden with high concentrations of minerals like calcium and magnesium, hard water can leave behind mineral deposits that build up on the scalp and hair strands over time. These deposits create a barrier that blocks moisture from penetrating the hair shaft, leading to dry, brittle strands that are prone to breakage and split ends. Additionally, the alkaline nature of hard water can disrupt the natural pH balance of the scalp, causing irritation, inflammation, and even exacerbating conditions like dandruff and eczema.

Dive into the details in our recent blog post – Hard or Soft Water Damage: The Toll on Your Hair, where we explore our in-salon and at-home solutions for both hard and soft water.

Hard Water Shower Filter –

The AquaBliss HD Multi-Stage Shower Filter (SF500) is a game-changer in the realm of shower filtration, offering a myriad of benefits for both your hair and skin. With multi-stage filtration technology, this innovative shower filter effectively removes impurities and contaminants from water, including chlorine by 97%+, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, heavy metals, sediment, and controls lime scale buildup, dirt, and bad odors.

This shower filter features a unique blend of activated carbon, KDF-55, and calcium sulfite, which not only purifies water but also balances pH levels, promoting optimal hydration and moisture retention for your hair and skin.


Soft water can pose a big challenges for your hair and your haircare routine as well. The lack of minerals means that soft water doesn’t provide the same level of nourishment and protection to the hair shaft as hard water does. As a result, hair washed in soft water may feel limp, lackluster, and prone to tangling, and make it more difficult for hair to hold styles or retain moisture, leading to frizziness and increased susceptibility to damage from heat styling or environmental factors.

The AquaBliss HD Revitalizing Shower Filter SF400 not only purifies water by removing harmful contaminants like chlorine, heavy metals, and bacteria, it also infuses your water with beneficial vitamins and minerals, offering comprehensive care for your skin and hair.

Its advanced multi-stage filtration system effectively reduces skin irritation and dryness, while preventing damage to hair, resulting in softer, shinier locks and smoother, more hydrated skin. Unlike the SF500 model, the SF400 filter enhances the shower experience by adding vitamins C and E, known for their antioxidant properties, which help nourish and protect the skin from environmental damage, as well as Zeolite Magnetic Energy beads that help to revitalize hair, skin, and nails. The filter also releases beneficial minerals, which can improve skin elasticity and hair strength, promoting overall health and well-being.
