Well Water: Good or Bad

Is well water bad for my hair?

Well water contains a wide variety of minerals that can damage your hair making it feel rough and dry, even when it is wet. These minerals can also alter your hair color (both natural and chemically processed) by attaching or penetrating your hair shaft every time you wash your hair.  Hot or warm water will open the cuticle of your hair shaft allowing the minerals to penetrate more easily.  When you have chemically processed hair the minerals can build up at an accelerated rate causing highlights to darken or turn brassy and perms to loose their curl. 

We carry several products that are designed to fix this problem by removing the minerals that are in your hair.  Some of them can even be used on a daily basis when your water quality changes throughout the year.

Enjoy Clarifying Spray: A spray-in clarifier that you use before shampooing your hair. Can be used on a daily basis if needed and is color safe

Malibu C Hard Water Demineralizer: Powder packet mixed with water used weekly to help restore body, bounce and shine. Color safe 100% Vegan and sulfate free

RedKen Hair Cleansing Shampoo: Formulated with fruit acids that can be used as often as needed to purify and refresh your hair and add shine

Scruples Hair Clearifier: Deep cleansing shampoo that can be used on a daily basis / color safe and is Gluten and Paba free

Always use a good conditioner or treatment with a low ph after clarifying!
