1. Hair fall
The high concentrations of minerals in the water can lead to scalp related problems such as dandruff and itchy scalp which can lead to hair fall.
Hard water makes washing your hair a chore. The shampoo your are using will not lather very well because of the minerals in the water. This leads to using more shampoo. Since you are using way more shampoo than you need to, you are adding more soap scum to your scalp. This soap scum is rather hard to rinse off. This can lead to dandruff.
3. Extreme scalp dryness and itching
Using hard water on your hair and scalp makes washing inefficient. Most people tend to use more shampoo to get a good lather. The problem begins when you try to rinse the shampoo away. The soap scum ends up sticking to your scalp. This can lead to extreme dryness and itchiness of the scalp.
4. Dry, rough hair
