I never had any skin nor hair concerns that I feel the need to blame tap water for. I grew up not really concerned with it as water in the Philippines ranges from soft to hard and would really depend on the city’s or province’s water supplier. In my 35 years of living in Metro Manila, I wasn’t keen enough to observe if the water coming out of our faucet, particularly our shower is the ultimate culprit to my hair fall. I treat hair fall as a normal occurrence during both my pregnancies and as part of postpartum as well. Though it has been 8 years after I last gave birth, I do get the occasional hair fall especially when I’m trying new hair products or having my hair colored. What helped me manage it was my regular Svenson treatment– which kept my locks & scalp stay healthy.
It’s been nine months of living here in Dubai and over time I’ve noticed how my skin had become extra dry and hair fall had gotten worse than usual. I thought it was the silent stress of moving and adapting but as I checked my daily journal (of what I eat, do, products I used) there wasn’t any particular thing I changed except the water in which I shower with.
HARD WATER, WHAT?
Hard water has high concentration of minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, sodium and nitrate and oftentimes pumped with chlorine. As a result it can cause skin dryness and hair dullness. Unfortunately, Dubai is one of the cities around the world that have hard water.
SHOWER FILTER IS A MUST
Nobody told me Dubai water can literally change my skin and hair’s texture. So forewarning if you’re planning to live here in Dubai, you must get yourself a shower filter. After doing research and checking out different brands, I discovered blu. I’ve seen their kiosks in different malls here in Dubai and have read reviews of their customers. This made me excited to receive my own blu ionic shower filter. So much so that I literally unboxed it on my Instagram stories & installed it the very day I got it.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT blu IONIC SHOWER FILTER
It’s basically a two-step installation. Insert the filter inside the shower handle, detach your old shower head from the shower hose and replace it with blu Ionic shower filter. You’re literally done installing it within minutes. No need for any tools nor plumber!
Feels like I’m at a spa! I love the quality of water output–one would thing that water pressure is not as good because it gives a soft jet stream but it’s even better than the shower filter our house came with. I never thought these 244 precision holes is what I need to make my shower time so relaxing.
Filters the nasties out. After more than a month of using it daily, oftentimes more than once a day of showering plus taking a bath, I could confidently say that it has really helped with my dry skin and falling hair. Dry skin has been manageable despite the summer heat and my hair fall has greatly reduced, I’m impressed!
While I do love my blu Ionic Shower Filter I wish it was a bit lighter. I use to attach it on our shower enclosure but since the shower hook is adjustable to a certain degree, the weight of blu shower head makes it challenging to keep it upright. So I decided to put in our bathtub and just place it on my tub caddy. Though I miss showering upright, I don’t mind spending some tub time if it means I’m using my blu ionic shower filter.
Overall, I’m very happy with my blu Ionic Shower Filter! The benefit it provides me very much outweighs the only con which is ironically the weight. Heehee. Would I recommend it to those who are looking for a shower filter? Definitely!
I’m so glad I switched my shower head to a blu ionic shower filter as it lets me shower at least twice a day and take a bath too without worrying about drying my skin or having too much hair fall!
