Dealing With Hard Water Naturally

Cider vinegar, eggs, and honey in various combination, or using just dry cornstarch are the only alternatives I have heard about.

These things don’t create an immune response, meaning your white blood cells won’t increase but these ingredients are not really nice to use.

If you live in a state that has hard water, it is more difficult to keep hair smooth and free from split ends. Soft water is for easy sudsing and you use less soap. Hard water is supposed to be better for people’s health and the city water pipes.

Water softener salts are Chromium Salts and you can determine your own level of water softness. You buy a tank (it looks like an oxygen tank) and use the salts in it and attach it to your water system. Chromium salts are not that safe so be aware.

Borax is a detergent booster and only good in a state that has soft water, and you can find it in some grocery stores. It comes in a teal blue box and costs anywhere from $1.99 to $3.59. You mix a handful of it with water in a plastic container and pour it over your hair, and your hair is clean. It is a somewhat natural product.

You can use it alone in your laundry (if you have soft water), but have a regular low scent powder detergent on hand for very dirty clothes or if they need whitening.

If you use dish detergent on your hair with hardwater, you can’t comb it right away and this is a drawback until you get used to it. When it is dry you can. One’s head feels lighter without regular shampoo chemicals.

Citric acid in soft water as a hair conditioner leaves one’s hair smooth, but it makes one’s hair develop a red tinge.

Olive oil on the ends of hair helps with dryness.

Your sense of smell comes back in degrees as you eliminate strong smelling products. Likewise for the sense of taste.
