Hard water really makes a difference :(

I just found out recently that I have hard water. I use and love an acv/water mix for chelating and did that today with amazing results! I just let it dry without rinsing it out and my curls are happy again!

The hard water makes my hair limp, thinner looking, and stringy so my question is how often can I use it? I wish I could use it everyday! It stinks but is darn worth it to bring my curls back to life!

Can hard water cause tangles too?

I think if the minerals from hard water build up on the hair, the buildup can cause tangles. I'm pretty sure this is what happened to me when I lived in an old dorm during university. Lol

I bought a cheap shower filter, it was like $20. It helped a lot and can attach to your showerhead. Also, I clarify a couple times a month and it works wonders. Highly recommend both!

Ok thank you so much for answering guys 😊 my husband and I are going to buy the PUR water filtering system and I was going to use the water in a bowl after washing. Would that be good?

And during washing that will be the only water that touches my hair from then on! Lol

I hope that works well, be sure to update us. As for shower filters, I've always been curious about their effect on the water pressure.

Hard water is the pits!! I want to out in a filter for both minerals and chlorine, but I've yet to do it.

I mix some ACV with my RO, and that seems to help a lot.

Good luck!! KUP!

I agree Jas76 it sucks!!! It even makes my hair flat and when I use regular water I get so much volume, definition, very little to no frizz, bounce, shine...everything! With the hard water I was using all my techniques like plopping, styling upside down, scrunching with a t-shirt, shuffling lightly at the scalp and pineappling but nothing changed it! I am definitely getting a water filter system soon! For now I'm using a shower cap here and washing my hair at my parent's. Lol

I mean c'mon I have 3rd day hair and it looks amazing! I can't stop looking and taking pictures of it! Lol

Would something like a Brita filter take out the minerals? I'm wondering if you could filter a bunch of water into a small basin and just use that to wash and rinse your hair? Is that what you mean about the Pur filter?

There is quite a difference though, when I used to live in the states, I did use hard water and it made my hair dryer than it already is and I feel like it seperates the curls
Yea I think it separates mine too
