    Your hair will be really soft and shiny with that whole house system. As you may have already found out, reduce quantity of shampoo by a lot. Enjoy the new house!

    This is the place where I ordered my two magnetic units. At the time that I installed I had hot water on demand from the furnace so only needed two units. Last year I installed a regular hot water heater so now I need two more units but sadly its not in the budget right now. Even so it still helps especially with the chlorine. If you are considering this make, please call them and explain how your water is in India (like with a tank etc) before making any decision. They can work it all out for you. Placement is very important but installation is incredibly easy. After you talk to them, then I suggest doing some internet shopping in case you find a unit that you like better than what I bought.

    Hi Ladies,

    I have been facing similar problem for the last 1.5 years. I came to the US in Nov 2007 and started to have hair fall immediately. I went to the doctor in Aug 2008 and she told me that my Vit D level is low which is quite common in Indians when they come to the US coz they dont get exposed to the sun that often (especially in winters:cry: ).. So I have been taking Vit D since then.. It helped a bit initially but I'm back to square one.. I also saw a dermatologist and he asked me to use Rogaine.. I havent really used it.. Do u think it would be great idea to continue using it??

    What else can I do to have healthy hair and prevent hair loss... Also just to mention I am a Sikh girl and do not trim my hair for religious reasons so I have many split ends.. I know I cant get rid of them completely but what can I do to soften my hair and make them grow???

    Please help!!:drowning
