Ever wonder why your hair seems to respond well to certain types of water? How at times the hair becomes inexplicably slimy and other days, it’s so frizzy and dry? Even your shampoo experience differed from place to place. If your hair does not seem to be adjusting to the shampoo bars, it may be due to your water. The characteristics of your water can determine how well (or poorly) your shampoo and conditioning routine works. Also, if your house water is chlorinated, mineralized or fluoridated, it can also have an effect on your hair and shampoo.
This is the most common type of tap water. It contains high amounts of calcium and magnesium, which accumulate in the hair. Hair washed with hard water is often dry, frizzy and dull-looking. People who wash their hair with hard water tend to suffer from dry, flaky scalp. Because hard water strips the tresses of moisture, the hair fibers become rough, thin and prone to breakage.
Soft water contains very little to no calcium and magnesium. It contains de-ionized sodium that’s why it’s a little salty to the taste. The water itself feels soft on the skin, giving the hair a slimy texture. Between hard water and soft water, the latter is ideal for bathing because it’s not as harsh as hard water. However, hair washed with soft water is often limp and lacks body. It will fall flat as a pancake so it’s not ideal for those with very fine hair.
