While all water may seem the same when caring for your hair, changes in water can make a big difference to your hair. The texture, strength, and softness of your hair can be markedly different depending on your area, the minerals in your water, and whether its hard or soft water.
Due to its high mineral content, hard water can be damaging to your hair. With higher levels of calcium and magnesium, hard water can lead to significantly drier hair. It’s also more challenging to get a good lather from shampoo and completely wash hair with hard water. Plus, hair that’s been color treated will often fade more quickly when washing it with hard water.
In some instances, the mineral build up on hair must be removed using a “chelating” shampoo, that strips the mineral from hair, but this can also dry hair out even more. To avoid having to take these measures, soft water offers an easier alternative that can contribute to hair that’s more soft and healthy.
Improve Your Hair With Soft Water
Although soft water isn’t a cure-all for any hair problems, it can contribute to hair that’s noticably softer and easier to manage. To learn more about the many benefits of water softening, contact the professionals at Texas Water Softeners.
