Hard Water Hard on Your Hair

You’ve decided not to color your hair anymore.  Yay, now the natural shine will eventually return.  YES, that’s true, but perhaps not if you wash your hair continually in hard water.  What???

YIKES !!!  If it does that to the kettle, what’ sit doing to your hair.

What is hard water? Hard water is water that has high mineral content – especially calcium and magnesium – in comparison to soft water. Although it’s not considered as harmful for your health, hard water can cause serious problems to your hair and skin. After many washing, minerals dissolved in the hard water create a scaly film on the hair. This prevents moisture from entering the hair. The result is dry, dull, tangly, and strange colored hair. Hard water can also cause build-up on the scalp, causing a dandruff-like condition to form.

Alternative Hair

A couple of years back, (due to health issues), I began losing my hair.  While it was very difficult to process that this was happening to me I came to understand that it wasn’t the end of being able to look attractive.  My professional and personal life places me “up front and center” quite often so naturally (okay I admit it) I want to look as well-groomed and pleasing to look at as possible.  We women ALL care about our hair, which is often referred to as “our crown of glory”.  Some of us are more glorious than others, but I truly felt challenged by my hair loss.
