The Effects of Softened Water on Your Hair

The minerals in hard water cause your hair cuticles to stand up, which can make your hair feel rough and dry, it can also have an effect on treatments such as perms and dyes which fade faster, and you can be left with a flaky scalp and hair breakage.

Softened water allows your body’s natural oils to keep your hair soft and shiny, without mineral build-up, it leaves no residue that will dry out the hair and cause an itchy scalp. So your hair is left feeling softer and healthier for longer.

How Water Softeners Help

Water softeners replace the hardness minerals in water which cause limescale with sodium, this is done through a process of ion exchange. As water is passed through the ion exchange resin in the softener, it captures the calcium and magnesium ions as they pass and releases the sodium ions.

Softened water will remove all the existing built upscale from your plumbing work and keep it that way, which leaves you to enjoy the saving on your heating bills. The benefits of softened water are most obvious in the kitchen with hard work and harsh cleaning products a thing of the past.

A quick wipe over will leave your kitchen sparkling and any existing limescale build-up on your kitchen appliances will be removed for good and the elements in your kettle and dishwasher will shining like new for years longer.
