woman with dry hairUsing hard water when taking a shower or bath can cause a lot of damage to your hair. Below you will find five insane problems that your hair goes through when you bathe in hard water. A water sofener from our water treatment company can help with each of these issues.

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.

2. Dandruff

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

Hard water has high amount of minerals in it. When washing and rinsing your hair, these minerals ends up damaging the hair in the process. This can leave your hair feeling dry and rough.

5. Dull and straw-like hair

If your hair and scalp are dry and itchy, your hair will also look dull and lifeless.
