This type of water will make the cuticle lift off the hair shaft, making it feel rough and will result in tangled hair. The affects that the hard water makes is dryness of hair, tangling, dandruff, lack of shine, fading of color from dyed hair, etc. You can’t make the water soft so that you can try doing a few tricks which may help you.
  • Always use mineral water or boiled water only. This is the most common way to soften the water.
  • You all have been heard about shower filters they help filter out certain chemicals right from the tap or the showers so you might use them.
  • Try to use deep conditioning treatments regularly so that go for egg and yogurt treatments once in a week and also do hot oil treatment regularly.
  • Make sure you do not use any styling tools and products because they can create a lot of residue. If you do, don't forget to use a clarifying shampoo or add a tea spoon if vinegar once a month to your shampoo and wash your hair.
  • Avoid chemical treatments like rebounding and coloring till you are sure your hair has accommodated to the change.
