Purifit Filter Shower Head is a wonder product for people with hair and skin problems
Hairfall is not a new problem and most of the time we are not aware of the real cause of why our hair decides to leave. In such a situation we panic and we start trying all different kinds of commercial hair care products on our scalp making it nothing short of a chemical biohazard. Some people change their lifestyle, eating habits and some go a distance by shaving all their hair off.
Amidst all this chaos, your shower keeps pouring the worst hard water that kills your hair with every wash. So if you feel like you have tried every kind of treatment and nothing has worked for you, we recommend you to use a water softener in your shower. Today we will be reviewing the Purifit Filter Shower Head based on our experience.

Purifit Filter Shower Head: Design And Build Quality
Our first impressions of the product were quite good. Purifit has kept the design quite simple and versatile. Right out of the box it gives an impression of a metallic container but it is actually an ABS plastic with a chrome finish. The top portion of the filter which fits into the shower pipe can rotate 360 degrees, so the shower direction can be adjusted.
Inside the filter housing, there is the filter which is a heavy plastic cylinder. Also, a couple of washers are provided to hold the filter in place and make sure it doesn’t move due to the incoming water pressure. On one side of the filter, there is a steel mesh that does the initial filtering of bigger particles that might come with the water. The other side has rather bigger holes that facilitate more water flow.
Purifit claims that the 15 Layer Cartridge has a life of 40,000 liters or up to 8 months (actual life depends on usage and water quality).
The filter housing felt heavy and sturdy. We didn’t see any bending or hear any creaking when we applied pressure on the filter housing with our thumbs. As it is made of plastic, there are no rusting issues as well. All in all, the shower filter is thoroughly solid and long-lasting.
Purifit Filter Shower Head: Installation
The filter is easy to install and fits into any standard size shower. Here are the steps to installation (You can skip step 1 if the filter cartridge comes already installed inside the housing):
Step 1: Open the housing and carefully place the washers inside it. After washers are in place, put the filter cartridge in between the two washers and close the housing.
Step 2: Wrap the threads of the shower pipe with the Teflon tape provided in the box around 5-8 times.
Step 3: Take the filter and fasten it on the tape by rotating it clockwise until the threads of the filter tightly sit on the threads of the shower pipe. And you’re done.

Purifit Filter Shower Head: What’s Our Opinion?
Hard water is a never-ending problem in most of the cities in India. As people are facing a water crisis, municipalities are digging deeper into the ground and the water quality is degrading exponentially.
Rahul from our team tried the product for a week and he said,
“After using it for a week, I can definitely say that this is a wonder product for people with hair and skin problems. On opening, the old shower attachment I could find large particles of dust, sediments, and rust and that was not a sight to behold. From the very first shower, I could feel that the water was clean and free of odor. My scalp now feels less itchy and dandruff has completely disappeared. Also, there are no more skin rashes. My skin feels soft and healthy as do my hairs.”
What did we like about the product?
Purifit Filter Shower Head gives a healthy bathing environment. This filter has a perfect combination of multi-layer filtering material including Activated Carbon, KDF55, Calcium Sulphite, Vitamin C balls, Ceramic balls, etc., that effectively purifies water, eliminates chlorine, fluoride, heavy metals, sediment particles, bacteria and other harmful substances in the water, and inhibits the growth of scale, algae, fungi, and mold.
One Fit All And Easy Installation:
This is a universal shower filter fits all half-inch shower head & handheld shower. It also works great in both hot and cold water. Also, it can be easily installed in just a few minutes without any tools.
The shower filter eliminates residual chlorine and impurities, which help to reduce dry itchy skin and dandruff. The clean water activates cells and increases oxygen content in the blood. A good hot water bath relieves fatigue and improves the condition of your skin and hair.
What could have been better?
No Extra Filter:
It would have been great that if Purifit could include an extra filter cartridge along with the product.
No Shower Modes:
The filter housing has just one mode unlike most of the latest shower attachments in which we can control the amount of water coming out of the shower.
All pollutants in the water are captures on the upper steel mesh filter. Over time, the pathway of water is blocked and the water pressure becomes low. As a result, from time to time you may need to open the filter housing, clean the filter and mount it back.
