Is hard water ruining your hair? Soften the blow with these tips...

Washing your hair with hard water means giving an open invitation to dull, dry, damaged and parched strands. Simply getting your hair to look good and feel clean after a hard water hair wash is a real struggle in itself. This is because the minerals in the water coat your hair, and leave it looking dull and dry and feeling oily no matter how many times you wash it.

Ahead, find some simple tips and tricks to help evade this problem and minimise hair damage...


Use a clarifying shampoo

Use argan oil

One of the best ways to help get rid of that ‘film’ of minerals on your hair is to use a clarifying shampoo. This is important to remove all impurities and hard water deposits such as chlorine, magnesium and sulphates. Try the TRESemmé Botanique Detox & Restore Shampoo as it gently cleanses and purifies your hair from daily residue and build-up.


Don’t forget to condition

Use argan oil

Hard water tends to make your hair super dry and rough, leading to breakage and hair fall. Hence, it is extremely important to nourish your hair using a conditioner to infuse a burst of moisture. We recommend the Dove Oxygen Moisture Conditioner to ensure that hair is nourished at all times.


Rinsed with filtered water

Use argan oil

If you live in an area that only receives hard water, then use this trick for shiny, glossy hair. Use bottled or filtered water as the last rinse to thoroughly clean your hair and make them soft.


Use argan oil

Use argan oil

Hard water makes your tresses really rough and frizzy, therefore it is important to thoroughly nourish them. Use a little bit of argan oil to help restore damage and add moisture to your hair. Just use a few drops on damp hair for soft, shiny hair! Make sure you use pure argan oil and not argan oil-infused leave-in conditioners.
