If you use the right products your hair is sure to always look beautiful and healthy, right? Wrong! Unfortunately, there’s more to the equation! Let’s talk about the water with which you wash your locks.
Have you ever been away on travel for a weekend only to find your hair looking completely lifeless after a shower? You were likely being exposed to hard water that left your hair looking and feeling dried out, weighed down, and generally awful. There are so many minerals in hard water that have some seriously damaging impact on your locks - dryness, color fading, build up on the scalp, and lack of lather (which means you’ll end up wasting shampoo!). However, there are a few ways to combat these negative effects!
First, consider installing a showerhead with a built-in filter. A quality showerhead with filter will cost you around $35.00, but will be well worth it in the amount of product you will save as a result. Next, consider investing in two life changing Davines products, SU Shampoo and OI/All in One Milk.
SU Shampoo is a clarifying shampoo that should be used twice a week. It has a rich formula designed to restore hydration and softness. This product will instantly provide a restructuring action and eliminate residues such as salt and chlorine.
OI/All in One Milk is a styling product with built in treatment. This product is a miracle worker! It will add shine and softness, work as a detangling agent, moisturize, AND give body to your hair without weighing it down.
While exposing your hair to hardwater is sometimes inescapable, there are things you can do to combat the unwanted effects. Stop by the salon to pick up either of these two products so that you won’t be caught on a weekend away without them!
