When the water is too hard, our hair and our skin feel it. The hard water means that it has a high content of minerals such as magnesium or calcium oxide or lime, the ingredients that produce a huge dryness significantly affecting moisture and beauty of our hair and dermis. Certainly we cannot prevent the hardness of water, but we can take some measures to counteract it and prevent it from causing damage to our hair. In this article, I will share a few ideas of how to protect your hair from the effects of hard water and keep your hair healthy and beautiful.
The most obvious effect of hard water on our hair is that it produces a significant dry hair, making it look dull and unhealthy. Of course, this ingredient affects people more than others who have curly hair or are prone to dry hair, so they will notice the impact of hard water more.
A good trick to protect is to fill a 1 liter bottle with tap water and add ¼ cup of vinegar and shake the bottle well and reserve. Once you have finished washing your hair of your usual routine, rinse it for the last time with this mixture. The vinegar neutralizes the effects of lime and will also make your hair much brighter.
Another way to prevent it to stay in your hair after washing is giving yourself a final rinse of your hair with bottled water which is low in minerals. Use in your hair a liter of bottled water at the end of the wash and you will see how its appearance improves remarkably. If you do not want to spend too much on bottles of water, you can buy a pitcher with a water softener and use the water from it.
An interesting way to forget about this problem and protect your hair from hard water forever is to install a universal filter shower; it does not require a complex installation and will serve to remove hard water ingredients before it reaches your body and hair. It is definitely a more permanent way to help your hair.
