No one thinks they have hard water. If you’ve got it, you *know* you have hard water. The tell tale signs are limp locks and a graveyard of styling products that have failed you in the past. Hard water effects pockets in each province across the country but it has been noted that our siblings in the centre (we’re looking at you, prairie provinces) seem to suffer more than others due to the high amounts of calcium and magnesium found in the groundwater. No matter how many washes you give your locks (as most folks will keep on shampooing to solve the problem), the lack of lather caused by the mineral deposits will simply build up on your hair, leaving a film that prevents any moisture from getting in. That, in turn, will open the flood gates to cheek-streaming tears and screams of “why does my hair look like a matted birds nest?!” We here at BeautyDesk hear you and are answering your guttural cries with five product solutions (and one natural option!) to rid you of hard water-bad-hair-days once and for all.
