Can’t seem to get your hair silky and smooth? It may be due to Minnesota’s hard water. While hard water can really take a toll on your home’s plumbing system, it can be just as harsh on your locks. Find out how you can fight back to get the hair you’ve always wanted.
Boost Shine and Body With Vinegar
Vinegar in your hair? You may be thinking that it’s an absurd idea, but it works! Hard water can deposit a scaly buildup in your hair and vinegar’s acidity can remove it. If you can’t stomach the smell of regular vinegar, you can use apple cider vinegar instead. Just mix 1 tablespoon with 3 cups of water, let it sit for a few minutes and then rinse with warm water.
When Life Hands You Lemons…
Use them to wash your hair! Similar to vinegar, the acidic nature of a lemon will help reduce scale buildup. The combination of lemon juice and water can also add shine and luster.
Soften Up The Water
Having a water softener installed is a great way to get rid of hard water. It will help reduce calcium and magnesium deposits which cause the buildups in the first place and it can help if you suffer from eczema, hair problems and other hard water related conditions.
