Let’s start with defining what hard water is. Hard water is water that contains high mineral content such as magnesium and calcium. With the presence of these minerals in water, soap solutions form what we call soap scum (soap residue) which is this white scum we see in our shower. Well guess what, the same thing happens to our skin! Soap will leave residue in our body which will of course cause our skin to be dry and itchy since it can strip our skin of its natural oils. Not only it can dry your skin, but it can also clog your pores which cause blackheads and whiteheads. But how do we solve this? Well that’s when the water softener shower head comes! Below are the top 5 of the best shower head water softeners.
The Culligan Wall-Mounted Chrome Filtered Shower Head is this year’s best shower head water softener due to the fact that it will reduce sulfur odor and chlorine, which will help you get a softer, cleaner skin and also hair! Plus, this showerhead offers five spray settings for you to choose depending on your mood. You can choose from a full-body spray for a maximum water coverage, to an energizing pulse for the most relaxing muscle massage.
