Since we recently moved I have been introduced to really hard water. I didn’t really know what it meant but I knew we weren’t going to be drinking it…lol. So of course I had to Google what this hard water was all about and I found out that hard water has high mineral and calcium content which cause limescale buildup and effects the quality of your clothes, appliances, dishwasher, pipes, and of course bathing. Hard water makes it harder for soap to lather up and can leave a film of soap curd on the skin (yea, I know…eeew!!!) . This same thing happens with your hair in turn leaving your hair dry, even more brittle, and not very clean. I also have been noticing the difference on my natural fro. Its not very manageable (which was a challenge before now just more of a challenge) and its very very dry even while trying to maintain deep conditioners. So I had to look for alternatives to help get my hair clean and help with dryness. Well I found out about water softeners so we decided to get one but now the problem is that I’ve only came across the big space takers and we don’t have enough space for those and I don’t want to deal with salt. So now I’m looking for a smaller alternative, so if any of you know, please let me know.

In the meantime, I found this….Ion Hard Water Shampoo and Conditioner.

I have not been using these products long (I think about a mth) but so far I do like them. For the shampoo, I love the “squeaky” clean feeling that I get from shampoos and not all shampoos leave it “squeaky” clean. To me the “squeaky” clean makes me feel like all the oils and grease and dirt is lifted from my hair and scalp. Also because it seems kinda harsh on the hair, I dont shampoo all of my hair, only my scalp then I let the soap run down my strands and gently rinse. Since I have natural, very thick hair, I have to make sure to part and shampoo scalp to really get it clean. But so far so good.

So if you have a shampoo that leaves your hair “squeaky” clean then the conditioner definitely HAS to be an EXCELLENT moisturizer, which is my concern when having “squeaky” clean hair because I poor conditioner will leave your hair dryer than you started which in turn leads to MORE BREAKAGE..which is definitely a NO-NO. Now when I put in conditioner, I make sure to put it especially on my ends and to the roots but I try to AVOID PUTTING ON MY SCALP because by my hair being so thick I dont want the conditioner to be clogged on my scalp and leaving residue on and I tend to leave some of the conditioner in my hair. 

So back to this conditioner…it was great. The first thing I wait for is the instant reaction. Soon as you start putting it in your hair, your hair is revived again. Your hair is instantly soft and do help with the manageability.

FINAL POINT: So all in all I think it is a great choice if you have hard water. I’m pretty sure it’s good if you don’t have hard water too but I normally use another shampoo and conditioner that I really like. So when I get a softener I’ll try this again and so how it is. 

So let me know what you all think. If you used it or if you use something else if you have hard water… just let me know, leave a comment… 🙂

God Bless…India 🙂
