Tips for Caring for Your Hard Water Hair

These shampoos can be found under many names such as chelating, neutralizing and clarifying. However if they don’t contain EDTA you will not have the results you are after. EDTA will bind to minerals and remove them as you rinse.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Okay, this may sound a little unusual, but you can make an apple cider vinegar rinse for your hair using 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar and ¼ of distilled water. Use this in your hair and leave on for a few minutes – then rinse with cold water. This not only helps remove the minerals but offers bounce and shine as well.
Moroccan Argan Oil
