UK WATER – IS IT REALLY AS TERRIBLE AS EVERYONE MAKES OUT?!
The simple answer is yes……..
Why is it so bad?
UK water is subject to the curse that is Hard Water, as well as being heavily chlorinated. It occurs when “soft” rainwater accumulates minerals as it passes through soil and rocks. The water is infused with calcium and magnesium that can be harmful to our skin and hair.
If you’ve ever looked in your dishwasher or washing machine you will notice that these mineral deposits build up over time culminating in a hard residue called Limescale.
How Hard Water affects your Health & Hair
Now imagine your hair covered in limescale. Not a particularly nice thought.
In one way or another this is what is happening when hair is washed with unfiltered hard water. The calcium and magnesium residue has some lovely effects, leaving behind dull limp hair with a straw like texture and a film that is really difficult to get off. All in all, a recipe for untameable hair!
See – It’s not all that bad
