Hard water can harm your hair badly. Hard water contains a very high quantity of minerals, especially calcium and magnesium. Calcium salts find a home in the scalp and can cause flaking. So if you’ve been having too many bad hair days, you have the hard water in your shower to blame for hair loss. And here we are giving you some solution to convert bad hair days to good hair days…!!!
- Vinegar Rinse: Mix one tablespoon of white vinegar with three cups of water. Shampoo your hair as normal while taking a bath. The vinegar can remove built-up minerals from hard water. When it is time to rinse the shampoo from your hair, use the water and vinegar mixture you created. And make sure each hair strand soaked the mixture and then rinse it after a few minutes.
- Lime Rinse: Lime Juice breaks down residual salts and minerals in your hair of the hard water. Lemon and lime juice also strip off excess oil, which makes it an especially good choice for those with greasier and sleek hair. Mix the one tablespoon of lime juice with three cups of water. And after shampooing the hair, massage this solution on your scalp. And rinse it off after a couple of minutes.
- Filtered Water: We can also use bottled mineral/spring water for final rinse. To cut down on your use of hard water, you could use some filtered water for the last rinse when you are washing your hair. You will need about a litre of water for this. Simply pour it over your head a little at a time to wash out the shampoo and conditioner. Instead of bottled water, you can also use water from filter jug, and that may not be so much of plastic waste.
