Why is Hard Water Bad for My Skin and Hair?

Hard water can be considered “bad” for many reasons, but it can especially affect your skin and hair. While hard water is safe to shower and bathe in, it can still affect your body due to the high amounts of minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, that are found in the water.

Keep on reading to find out how hard water could be affecting your skin and hair and how Einstein's Plumbing & Heating, Inc. can help with our water treatment services.

Why is Hard Water Bad for My Hair?

Do you ever feel like your hair is dry and dull, even after you just deep conditioned it? This could be a result of hard water. The minerals in the water can also make it hard for you to thoroughly rinse your hair, meaning you will have residue left behind in your hair no matter how many times you try and rinse it out. To list everything out for you, here are some ways hard water affects your hair:

  • Dry and brittle hair
  • Hair that appears dull
  • Hair that has a straw-like texture
  • Color-treated hair fading quickly
  • Split-ends and breakage
  • Thinning hair and hair loss
  • Hair that is difficult to rinse shampoo and conditioner out of

Why is Hard Water Bad for My Skin?

In addition to negatively impacting your hair, hard water can also affect your skin. Between the minerals that are already in the water and the combination of the soap you use to wash your face, your skin can become very irritated. Here is another list of ways hard water can affect your skin:

  • Dry, irritated skin
  • Clogged pores
  • Acne

Due to the fact that hard water can dry out your skin, it can become very frustrating when you are going through bottles of lotions and moisturizers that don’t seem to be working. When hard water strips your skin of its natural oils, it can become very difficult to moisturize your skin when you are showering in hard water.
