3 Great Reasons To Remineralize Your Pure Water

(Photo credit: Wikipedia)

While it is true that our food, not our water, is the main source of our dietary minerals, remineralisation fortifies water with calcium, magnesium and sodium to drinking water – some of the most important  essential minerals our bodies require:

  • Calcium is essential for healthy bones and teeth – and with our reduced consumption of milk products in our diets (due to a rise in lactose intolerance and health trends), a deficiency in calcium intake now affects many populations, as indicated by a rise in diseases such as osteoporosis – especially in women.
  • Magnesium is important in over three hundred functions in the human body. It assists in the production and transport of energy in the body, and its absence is notably felt in the form of tiredness and fatigue.
  • Sodium is important in many functions of the body as well, assisting with diverse functions such as nerve impulse transmission, through blood pressure regulation, to digestion and nutrient transport. It even involves controlling the absorption and retention of water – pretty important when we’re up to 60% water (78% when we’re born!).

2. Re-mineralized water can quench our thirst more effectively

It contains electrolytes

When we drink re-mineralized water, we can be certain of its safety – and our bodies are replenished with electrolytes. These electrolytes also help with proper absoroption – and if our drinking water water doesn’t contain them, we provide them (though drinking pure water will by no means cause a deficiency).

It’s ionized

In addition, the minerals added back into the water alkalize the water, boosting the pH to a perfect healthy alkaline level – between 8.0 and 9.5 pH. When ultra purified water is re-mineralized and its pH raised, the water will becomes ionized. Water naturally “clusters” into approximately sixteen H2O molecules, but when ionized water form clusters much smaller – eight or less. These smaller water clusters make hydration possible on a cellular level which means that hydration occurs more rapidly and thoroughly throughout the entire body. We at Aquasafe think that’s pretty neat!

3. Re-mineralized water simply tastes better

While purifying our water removes all the undesirables, it is fact that the human palate is accustomed to drinking water with substances in it. Re-mineralized water offers the perfect blend of purity and flavor. And while pure water is completely safe, re-mineralized water is too – and the best tasting water you can find. A blend of sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium has been confirmed in taste tests as the ideal mineral electrolytes, and re-mineralized water has been confirmed to make coffee taste better too, as a critical part of brewing the absolutely perfect cup.

Re-mineralize your pure water to enjoy perfect drinking water…

7 Ways to Stay Hydrated This Summer

With summer beginning its welcome approach across North America, thousands this year will soak up the rays and the heat. And in the summer, hydration is especially important. Here’s some easy ways to be certain that you and you loved ones will stay properly hydrated!

At its core, proper hydration is a very simple matter with a simple solution: ingest enough water to stay hydrated. But some might find it difficult – or just boring – to drink that much water. And hotter temperatures, along with physical exertion, can increase the need for water. So how can we make sure we’ll get enough?

The following 7 tips will help you ensure that you’re well supplied with sources of water that you’ll ingest – and to ensure that you remember to. And remember – to hydrate yourself with the safest water possible, choose pure water from a home reverse osmosis system.

Here’s How To Make Proper Hydration Easy:

1. Plan Ahead and Pack

The best way to make sure you’ll have enough water? Bring it with you. A few containers of drinking water should be a part of any trip. Getting enough water is a hugely important part of living at your best – and feeling up to enjoying yourself. Just be sure to use re-usable containers to help avoid the problems with bottled water.

2. Mix It Up

Sure, water’s the most hydrating beverage there is. But it can get boring. The good news is, smoothies are hydrating too. And so are many fruit juices (dilute them a bit to make them extra hydrating!). If you’re finding it difficult to get all your necessary water intake from water alone, then feel free to mix it up – and mix things with your water. Just make sure you try to avoid natural diuretics such as caffeine, alcohol, or sugar.

3. Don’t Just Drink Your Water – Eat It Too

Water’s not only available to us through in the liquids we drink, but also within the food we eat as well. One obvious summer example, of course, is the aptly-named watermelon. While watermelon is renowned for its high water content (and it’s delicious flavour!), it also essential electrolytes that the body needs for nerve and brain function. Beyond watermelon lie a large variety of foods that contain lots of water and other things that your body needs in the summer especially. So if drinking lots of liquid isn’t your thing, try to choose foods that hydrate.

4. Remember The Electrolytes

Gatorade and sports drinks offer a very simple solution to a problem that often accompanies dehydration. When the body sweats, as it often does sultry summer heat, it doesn’t just lose water, it loses important electrolytes as well. Sports drinks offer a quick electrolyte fix (though some may have high sugar content). And if you’re feeling motivated, you can always make your own!

5. Who Doesn’t Love Popsicles?

People love summer popsicles for good reason. They’re cool, they’re sweet, and they quench thirst. This means they’re an awesome way to ensure hydration. Not everyone wants to have to drink enough water to stay hydrated. Children especially can benefit from having popsicles readily available. And more often than not, they contain the same electrolytes found in sports drinks.

6. Remind Yourself To Drink Enough Water

Now, more than ever, we live in a word where staying on top of things is attainable for anyone. So why not program recurring reminders into your calendar, your to-do list, via scheduled emails or texts, or set alarms? If it’s hard to remember to stay hydrated, let technology take care of it!

7. Jug It

If all else fails, get a nice big jug of water and take it with you wherever you go (within reason, of course). It’s not the most convenient method, and the water might get warm, but it’s hard to forget to drink water when there’s a large container of it right there with you. So make it really hard to miss – and make sure you’ll be hydrated.

With these easy measures, virtually anyone can be ensured to get enough water, and stay clear of the (literal) headaches associated with dehydration.

Remove all toxic contaminants from your drinking water.
Get the purest water possible for your loved ones!

Deionization / DI Resin Filtration: When, Why & How

Often the final stage employed in multi-stage RO/DI water systems, Deionization removes the smallest of all impurities – known as ions – from water. But rather than purifying the water with a typical filter, which physically prevents impurities from passing through it, deionization involves passing the water through a bed of beads, known as “ion exchange resin” or “DI resin,” which attracts and sticks to the ions, removing them from the water.

DI resin beads in a DI canister.

DI resin works because ions themselves have electrical charges: ions with a negative charge are called anions, and ions with a positive charge are called cations. And just like magnets, these ions are attracted to oppositely charged substances. Therefore, when we pass water through a bed of DI resin, we pass it through a blend of positively and negatively charged beads, which binds all the corresponding ions and leaves only pure water at the end:

When water passes through the DI resin bed, the charged ions within it are attracted to, and bind to, the opposingly-charged DI resin.

The DI resin bed is commonly employed in a DI canister, which traps the ions while the water passes through. In an aquarium RO/DI system, the DI stage is frequently the final stage – it produces the absolute purest water. In a home RODI system, an additional polishing filter might follow for optimal taste, or a remineralizer might be subsequently employed, which replenishes a variety beneficial minerals to the guaranteed safe water.

Why Is Deionization Needed In Addition to Other Methods?

Deionization removes the particles that are too small for other filtration methods such as SED, GAC, CCB, and even Reverse Osmosis Membranes. Each of these purify water by filtering out particles larger than a specific size, from the SED filter which removes particles larger than 5 microns down to the RO membrane, which removes particles larger than 1/10,000 of a micron. But after RO membrane filtration, the few remaining particles – the ions – are as small as water molecules themselves, and can pass through any membranes that water can. Therefore, in order to remove them from water we employ the deionization process to attract the ions and bind them, and leave only the pure water to pass through to the other side.

Tips on How To Make Great Use of DI Resin

  • Monitor Your Resin: DI Resin is highly effective, but when it’s spent it won’t remove ions anymore. To ensure that your DI resin is working properly, check it periodically – especially when you think that your beads might be nearing their expiration date. Here’s what to look for:

    • Check for color changes: When DI resin nears its working lifespan, its color will have changed to an amber/orange or even brown color.
    • Mind your Total Dissolved Solids: When DI beads start to become saturated, ions start to creep through and TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) starts to increase. With a TDS meter, you’ll know when it’s time to change the resin.
  • Filter your feed water: DI resin removes ions extremely effectively, but it works most efficiently and economically by far when the feed water is already properly filtered. Fortunately, DI filtration is most commonly found after reverse osmosis filtration, which removes 95% of impurities. This pure feed water allows you to get the most out of your DI resin. It’s also a great practice to monitor your feed water TDS – at each stage if you can. Any change means its time to change a filter.
  • Stock up in bulk to save: Keep DI resin and other filters on hand. Buy in bulk to save and maximize the convenience and economic benefit of DI filtration.

When DI resin is employed as part of the RO DI purification process, it produces water that is guaranteed safe and more than 99.9% pure – regardless of the water’s source! DI resin filtration is dependable and economical. Please contact us if you have any questions about DI filtration, our RO DI systems, or anything related to water filtration.

Edmonton Alberta’s River-Fed Water Goes Great With Water Filters

What’s In Edmonton’s Water?

Edmonton’s drinking water is provided by the North Saskatchewan River. This river flows from the foot of the Columbia Ice fields in the Rocky Mountains and is fed along the route to Edmonton by hundreds of smaller rivers and creeks. This means that the river can pick up waste and other by-products from both human and animal activity along the way to the treatment plant. To this end EPCOR, who provides water services for Edmonton, has published guidelines for helping to protect the watersheds in order to help maintain and preserve this natural resource.

How Is Edmonton’s Water Filtered?

Water treatment is handled through two filtration plants in Edmonton and drinking water is distributed throughout the city by a vast and ever growing network of pipelines. An average of 350ML of water is treated daily, but cold river water takes longer to treat than warm river water due to the processes used to remove sediment and sterilize water for human consumption.

What Are Some Potential Issues With Edmonton’s Water?

Excess rain and snow melt can increase the amount of contaminants in the water that enters the treatment plants. Where we can be certain that the water intake is monitored and measured to ensure that no harmful bacteria or microbes reach our homes, we can’t be equally certain in regards to sediment and other particulates. We can ensure that our drinking water is as pure as possible by using home water filters to remove any leftover contaminants before consumption.

Another problem that Edmonton suffers from is hard water. Hard water contains more calcium and/or magnesium bicarbonate than other water sources. Water is generally harder in the winter than it is in the summer. While this is not harmful to a person’s health it can have an adverse effect on appliances by causing ‘scale’ which is a buildup of mineral deposits which can clog machinery and reduce its useful life span. Soap and detergents don’t lather properly and become harder to rinse away. For this reason, a shower filter is certainly a worthwhile consideration.

Which Water Filter System Is Best For Edmonton?

Reverse Osmosis water purifiers can remove contaminants from your drinking water that may have been missed during treatment or picked up somehow between the filtration plant and your kitchen faucet by using several filtration membranes to ensure that your family’s drinking water is pure and safe.

These systems can reduce the effects of hard water on your kitchen appliances like coffee makers and steamers which means they are an economical addition to any home.  Reverse Osmosis water purifiers remove 95% of impurities. Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions about improving the water quality in your home.

Fort McMurray And Home Water Filtration Systems

Fort McMurray (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Fort McMurray is Canada’s boom town. Lucrative oil sands operations make this city one of the most expensive places to live; but does it’s water treatment system measure up to the demand?

Fort McMurray is part of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, which is responsible for the provision of its utilities, including drinking water. The Fort McMurray Athabasca Water Treatment Plant takes water from the Athabasca River and treats it with several processes (including filtration, fluoridation and chlorination) to meet or exceed both provincial standards and the Canada Drinking Water Guidelines. Upgrades to the water treatment facility have been required because of the rapid population growth in the region, including a deep bed filter upgrade and the addition of UV treatment. Fort McMurray water is tested regularly to ensure that water standards are met. Source water samples are also sent to Edmonton regularly to be tested for such contaminants as E.Coli total coliform bacteria, several chemicals and trace elements, to help verify that Fort McMurray’s drinking water is indeed considered fit to drink.

But is Fort McMurray’s Water Consistently Safe Enough For Your Family?

Fort McMurray’s water supply is affected by seasonal differences in the water cycle, sometimes causing the water that comes from faucets to become discoloured or cloudy. There is also a warning that those who have a compromised immune system should be careful because they may be more vulnerable to the contaminants that may still exist in treated drinking water. These people are strongly advised to purchase a home water filtration system in order to ensure that their drinking water is safe. A home water filtration system is also recommended for improving the taste and appearance of drinking water, especially during the seasons where water flow in the river is increased by runoff in the region. Runoff can cause more contaminants to enter the river because of the increase of water percolating through the soil in the land surrounding the river. This can sometimes mean that human-related contaminants can enter the water system, including pesticides, motor oil and fertilisers. Environment Canada has strict guidelines on the protection of Canadian watersheds so that this kind of contamination is limited.

In this vein, concern has been raised over the effect of the oil sands operations has on the Athabasca watershed. While tests do not prove conclusive either way, some prefer the addition of a home water filtration system to ensure that contaminants are removed from their family’s drinking water. A reverse osmosis water filtration system is the most effective in removing any bacteria, parasites, trace elements, chemicals and other contaminants from drinking water; improving the taste and safety of your drinking water. For more information on home water filtration systems for your home, please visit our store or contact us now.

If you’re at all concerned about the quality of your water, or you simply want to be certain, you should choose an Aquasafe Home Reverse Osmosis System. An Aquasafe Home Reverse Osmosis system will remove all contaminants from water, including THM’s and HAA’s, producing guaranteed safe water you can count on every time.

Reverse Osmosis And Dwarf Shrimp

Dwarf shrimp keeping is exploding. Already extremely popular in Europe and Asia, these colorful little crustaceans are really beginning to make an impact in North America as well. With their growing popularity comes a need to understand what’s needed to keep them happy, healthy and active.

Members of the Caridina species such as Crystal Red shrimp, Crystal Black shrimp, and Tigers, have some of the most demanding water requirements of any of the freshwater critters commonly available to hobbyists. It’s very important to know what’s in your water, and what’s not in your water, to be truly successful in keeping and breeding these shrimp. A healthy shrimp population, living in suitable water conditions will double in population every three to six months as long as there are no predators. If you’re keeping shrimp, and not getting similar results, something is wrong. And it’s probably your water.

In our breeding and holding tanks we use remineralized water from aquarium reverse osmosis water systems exclusively, and there are a lot of reasons why. Aspects of water chemistry that are often ignored by freshwater aquarists are of great importance when dealing with dwarf shrimp. It’s no longer enough to just know what pH your water is. Things like gH, kH and TDS play vital roles in shrimp keeping. But more than that, it’s extremely important to know exactly what is in your water. And what’s not.

There is a ton of (often differing) information out there about what water parameters the various types of shrimp need in order to thrive and I won’t go into that here. I will say, however, that it’s much easier to reach your desired numbers for pH, gH, TDS, or whatever you’re measuring, when you start from zero. It’s a whole lot easier to add things to water than it is to take things out of it. An aquarium reverse osmosis system is a great source of the the pure water that gives you the ability to know exactly what is in it. You can make sure that the water contains all the things your shrimp need, and nothing they don’t.

Filter Your Tap Water To Prevent Harming Your Shrimp

Dwarf shrimp are beautiful but sensitive little creatures.

One of the most overlooked aspects of water quality is bacteria. Dwarf shrimp naturally have almost no immune system. They’re also extremely selectively bred to bring out the fantastic colors we prize so highly in our shrimp. This narrowing of their gene pool weakens their immune systems even further. The results are gorgeous little shrimp that have little to no defense against bacterial infection. This is one of the reasons why you’ll often hear people complain that they suffer losses every time they get new shrimp. Sometimes a bacterial infection will be visible in the form of discoloration on the body of the shrimp, and sometimes it won’t be. Tap water can contain a cornucopia of bacteria.

Dwarf shrimp are also extremely sensitive to heavy metals. Especially copper. Even the trace amounts of copper leached into the water by copper plumbing pipes can be detrimental to a colony of shrimp. This can lead to lower birth rates, lethargic behavior, and even death. There are a lot of products available that neutralize copper and other heavy metals, but I’d rather start with water that doesn’t contain them to begin with.

There’s a lot of stuff in tap water now days that is just plain scary. That’s why the bottled water industry is so successful. If you don’t want to drink it, why would your shrimp want to?

Bottled Water: Really Not That Great (And Neither Is Tap Water)

There are already too many of them…

Many people simply walk into a store, grab any bottle of water they see on the shelf, purchase, and drink it without a second thought of what this is doing to the environment, or themselves. Water is simple (there’s just one ingredient), healthy, natural, pure, and overall better for you right? Well, that is what most of us thought when bottles of water started filling up store shelves, but things aren’t as simple as they seem.

Just What Exactly Is Bottled Water?

Bottled water has many different labels such as mineral water, spring water, mountain spring water, natural spring water, smartwater, sparkling water, and many others. But why do they all have different names if water is just, well, water? Well, bottled water companies are battling for the perfect label. Why buy just spring water, when you can get natural spring water?  In the end, though,  it’s all the same regardless of the source and its packaging. And what does “naturally” mean when it comes to water, anyway? Well most of the time it means “water from the tap” – the same water you get in your home, much more cheaply.

Is Bottled Water Safer Than Tap Water?

Many believe bottled water is healthier and safer than tap water, as it has been filtered or purified more than tap water. This may be true for some, but most isn’t filtered more than what already comes from your taps. Unless the bottle says on the packaging somewhere that they used reverse osmosis, chances are it’s tap water, sold to you at a large profit. Bottled water’s reputation is similarly misleading when it is believed to be rid of contaminants like chlorine and fluoride, but, if you actually read the label, you will find that the majority of bottled water actually has fluoride added. In a recent study done by the Environmental Working Group, 173 different brands of bottled water were tested and graded on a scale of A through F. Out of those 173, 0 came out with an A grade, and only 3 made the grade of B, and over half of them received an F. (http://www.ewg.org/research/ewg-bottled-water-scorecard-2011) The only water to come out with an A grade, is your tap water, which most of you don’t trust already, and it’s better than the bottled water you are buying which is more expensive than gas. And to add it, the bottled water industry very loosely regulated. They can pretty much get away with putting anything in the water they want, as where tap water is regularly and closely monitored and regulated.

Bottled Water And The Environment

And then there is the impact that bottled water companies have on the environment. Making all of these bottled requires over a million barrels of oil, which in turn contributes greatly to carbon emissions. Then there more oil is used for the transportation of these bottles. Everyone already knows how bad plastic is for our environment – over 90% of the plastic bottles end up in either landfills, waterways, or our oceans, and never biodegrade.

And so, bottled water is not such a wise choice. But tap water isn’t either. Most tap water contaminations are not disclosed to the public until a solution can be found to fix the problem.  Then there are the standard levels of chlorine, and fluoride, which are generally higher than what the EPA recommends. And when chlorine is added to the water, it reacts with organic matter to create a compound called THM’s or trihalomethanes which are proven to be carcinogenic. And these are just two common additives allowed by the EPA. There are hundreds of toxins and contaminants in your water, most of which the EPA and other agencies aren’t testing for, such as pharmaceuticals, pesticides, jet fuel, and radiation. Because our understanding of the effects of many of these toxins is limited, their levels may be monitored but not disclosed. We are unsure of what the effects on the body could be, and the levels continue to rise.

What’s Safe To Drink?

So, if you are hesitant to drink your tap water, thinking it may be unsafe and full of toxins, you’re right to be. And bottled water isn’t the answer either. If you want to drink pure, healthy water, you need a water purification system such as a reverse osmosis system. Reverse osmosis is the only solution available which can truly deliver the quality of water you can surely trust and is made reliable and extremely affordable by Aquasafe Systems.

Filtered Water Is Better For Water Heaters & Saves Energy

Most of us understand that pure water is guaranteed safe to drink. And we’ve also explored how it’s better for clothing. But did you know that pure water is better for our water heaters? Pure water can help maximize a water heater’s working lifespan and minimize its working energy costs.

Why Pure Water Is Preferable For Use With Water Heaters:

✔ Pure Water Is Easier On Water Heaters

No scaling (mineral buildup) occurs. When scaling occurs, the water heater has to work harder – and ultimately it has a shorter lifespan. With purified water, this doesn’t happen.

✔ It Saves You On The Cost Of Hot Water

Without scale to interfere with heat transfer, the water heater can heat the water with maximum efficiency, which minimizes energy costs, and also means that hot water is replenished faster.

✔ It’s Healthier and More Reliably Safe

Pure water is gentler on the skin.

With unfiltered water in a water heater, you’re not protected against water quality issues. And a water heater tasked with unfiltered water is more likely to rust. It’s also much more difficult to clean inside. But when you run a water heater consistently with pure water, it’s shielded from water quality issues and stays pristine. Similarly pure hot water is safe. People are mostly aware of the need for safe drinking water, but the water we shower in and clean with is important as well. When it’s pure water, its quality is guaranteed.

Pure Water Is Better For Delicate Fabrics

Guest post by Kelsey Cutler of SheSewCrafty Canada

help your fabrics look better, stay cleaner, and last longer

I usually recommend that people hand wash my creations, and I also think that they should use pure water because it cleans all fabrics more effectively and it’s easier on them. So it’s the best type of water for cleaning fabric, whatever the kind.

• Pure water doesn’t leave residue

Some impurities in laundry water cause residue that changes the appearance and feel of fabric. Sometimes fabrics become stiff and brittle feeling. Others become yellowed, dingy, or streaky. Pure water contains no contaminants at all so it leaves no residue.

brights stay bright (pictured: 6-12 month boutique girls knot dress by SheSewCrafty)

• Pure water doesn’t damage fabric

Pure water will not bleach fabric or stain it permanently, and will not cause weakening, tearing, or fraying. It contains no chlorine, no rust, no calcium, nor anything else that’s harsh on fabric.

• Pure water helps detergent do its job

When laundry water is contaminated, detergent cleans away the contaminants in addition to cleaning the laundry. Certain contaminants even react with detergent, causing streaking, staining, and permanent damage – especially to delicates. When pure water’s used, the detergent is simply used to clean the fabric. This means you need less of it – so you save on detergent, too.

It’s easier on your hands

pure water is softer

If you frequently wash delicate fabrics by hand, you’ll find another benefit to using pure water is that it’s easier on your skin. The same chemicals that are harsh on fabric are harsh on your skin, so using clean water doesn’t just protect your delicates – it protects you as well.

While it’s certainly better for any fabric, it’s difficult to wash all your laundry with pure water. But if you can, try to handwash your delicates with pure water. Your fabrics and your hands will be better for it!

Either a whole house water filtration system which removes the majority of contaminants (including chlorine), or a reverse osmosis system which removes virtually all of them, will do.

Remove all toxic contaminants from your drinking water.
Get the purest water possible for your loved ones!

Causes and Treatments for Telogen Effluvium Hair Loss in Women

Be happy with your hair again.

Hair loss is discouraging for men, but it can be much more distressing to women. There are a variety of factors that can lead to hair loss in women. One of the most common causes of hair loss is Telogen Effluvium. Understand what telogen effluvium is and how you can treat it.

What is Telogen Effluvium?

Telogen Effluvium is a reduction in the number of hair follicles that actively grow hair. The condition is triggered by a hormonal imbalance. People who develop telogen effluvium don’t become completely bald, but their hair will become noticeably thinner as the condition progresses.

A number of factors could cause telogen effluvium or exacerbate the condition. These factors include physical trauma, excessive weight loss or pregnancy.

Researchers haven’t conducted a substantial amount of research to understand the condition, but dermatologists have identified a few treatments that appear to be effective.

Treating the Condition and Reversing Hair Loss

Hair loss from telogen effluvium is not permanent and the problem will normally run its course after six months. However, the hair loss you are experiencing may want to seek more immediate treatment. There are a variety of problems that could lead to telogen effluvium. You will need to treat the underlying problem that led to the condition in order to reverse the effects of hair loss.

Here are some of the leading causes of telogen effluvium and what you can do to treat it:

  • Stress. Stress can throw your hormones out of balance, which can lead to the onset of telogen effluvium. If stress is the leading factor of hair loss, then the best way to treat the condition is to utilize stress management techniques.
  • Medications.  A number of antidepressants and other psychotropic medications have been associated with telogen effluvium. Tell your doctor that you are concerned that you may be undergoing telogen effluvium. They can usually find an alternative medication that doesn’t have the same side effects.
  • Diet. Your diet can also be a contributing factor to the disorder. This is usually a problem for people in nations where they are more likely to suffer from malnutrition. However, some people may go on restrictive diets that reduce or eliminate red meats or other foods that contain the nutrients they need to stimulate hair growth. Dermatologists believe that iron deficiencies are one of the most common causes of hair loss in women. Ask your doctor if you need to make some alterations to your diet or use supplements to ensure you receive the nutrients you need to stimulate hair growth.

A number of different factors can lead to hair loss. However, sometimes your dermatologist may not be able to identify the cause of telogen effluvium. They may suggest that you use supplements to reverse the condition and stimulate hair growth. Your hair will eventually regrow by itself, but you can reduce the time you need to recover from the condition by treating the underlying causes.

When Telogen Effluvium strikes, keeping your scalp and hair healthy is an important way to mitigate its effects, and speed recovery. Shower Filters from Aquasafe help your shampoo and conditioner work its best – and protect your hair from exposure to harmful substances such as chlorine.
