Updated: Sep 19, 2020


Is your hair dry and dull?  I'm sure you're wondering what is causing it.  First you have to ask yourself how often are you shampooing your hair?  What type of water is coming out of the faucet?  Is it hard water?  Is the sun too harsh on the hair?

The most common cause of dry hair for starters is the water.  Hard water is when the water runs through chalk, gypsum and or limestone deposits which are made of calcium, magnesium carbonates, bicarbonates and sulfates.   How do you know if hard water is affecting your hair?

  1. Your hair does not absorb products

  2. No shine (dullness)

  3. Frizzy even when you use products

  4. Weights down (heaviness)

  5. Does not absorb products

  6. Grayish hue over the hair
