First off, lets talk about hard water.
Most people assume only “well water” is considered hard water. That, my friends, is false. Actually, it’s been researched that around 85% of water is hard water. Rain water is soft water, and if it soaks into the ground and passes over hard rock, the water will remain soft. If the rain water passes through softer rocks, such as limestone, it will pick up minerals which will provide the water with different characteristics, which leads to the term hard water.
What does hard water do to hair?
Hard water actually makes your hair harder to wash. Your hair has shafts, which are covered in little scales. Hard water will make these scales stand up rather than lay flat. This will lead to your hair feeling rough and tangled, and when your hair is tangled, it is harder to wash all the shampoo and conditioner out of your hair. Also, since hard water is packed full of minerals, sometimes these minerals have bad reactions with your hair. It can cause hair to become damaged, brittle, or even give a green tint to hair.
