Have you ever heard the term “hard water?”

If you’re new to the greater Asheville area, you may not be aware that our mountain water carries an increased amount of dissolving compounds, such as iron, calcium, and magnesium. While these things are great for your body in a supplemental form, they aren’t always ideal for your skin, hair, faucets, appliances, and more.

First, let’s lay out the primary symptoms of hard water as listed by the Water Quality Association.

Unlike “soft” water, like filtered bottle or rainwater, hard water can cause the following issues:

  • Buildup in sinks, bathtubs and faucets
  • Leave mineral deposits on dishes and glassware
  • Cause freshly washed clothing to be stiff and/or faded
  • Create high energy costs due to pipe and appliance scale buildup
  • and more

But, how does HARD WATER affect or damage your hair?

If hard water has left deposits all around your house, you can guarantee it’s leaving deposits on your scalp as well. This extra buildup typically leaves your hair dull and lifeless—feeling glued to your head. But, most don’t know that this can also leave your hair feeling brittle and drier, which ultimately leads to damage (and frizz). In addition, hard water will reduce the longevity of synthetic hair color, increasing the need for salon visits regarding touchups and even color corrections.

If you’ve found yourself spending an obscene amount on salon quality hair products and are left underwhelmed and unhappy with the results, you may have a lingering hard water issue.

If you have concerns or questions about your hard water, and would like to discuss soft water solutions, Price Well & Pump is here to help.
