For Hard-Water-Related Hair Damage

ancient hair care


Think about how dry and crunchy your hair feels when you let it air-dry after swimming in the ocean. That’s an exaggerated example of what hard water can do to your hair—minerals in tap water act similarly. With the excess amount of minerals, hard water tends to make hair feel crispy since the minerals cling to the hair when it evaporates.


Hard water contains a high mineral count of calcium, magnesium, and iron, which has adverse effects on the condition of the water.

◉Extremely Hard: over 14 gpg

◉Very Hard: 10 to 14 gpg

3 Signs of Hard Water on Hair

Mineral scales can cause your hair to look greasy.

Minerals dissolved in water form deposits on your hair, weighing it down. Your hair may feel sticky and dirty near the scalp, no matter how often you wash it.

Calcium deposits on the scalp may cause a dry, itchy scalp with powdery flakes.

After dyeing hair with natural hair dye

Some notice their scalp feeling dry and itchy after using plant dye powders. These reasons include residue left over after rinsing.

  1. The micro-powder left by the natural hair dye is charged with electricity.
  2. The electricity attracts minerals to your hair.
  3. Minerals adhere to your hair and scalp.

Do to Save Your Hair from Hard Water

Fortunately, the ancient science of Ayurveda has natural remedies that can reverse the damage caused by hard water on your hair. Ritha and Shikakai have a long history as hair cleansers and natural conditioners. Ritha fruit and shikakai seed are the best hair cleansers for hard water. These Indian herbs work so well in hard water because they contain biological chelating agents that help remove the mineral build-up. Plus, shikakai seeds and fruit are known for their benefits for healthy scalp and hair. They not only cleanse hair but also add body and luster and make it feel thicker, silky, and smooth.
