How Do I Know If My Hard Water Is Affecting My Skin and Hair?

October 30, 2023 | Blog

Few homeowners connect dry skin and unhealthy hair to hard water imbalances. It’s easy to overlook these problems and push the discomfort aside — or seek to fix the issue through lotions and hair products rather than search for where the complications stem from.

At Blanco AC, Electrical & Plumbing, we don’t push problems under the rug. That’s because our customers’ peace of mind and comfort are our top priorities. If your hair and skin are struggling, this may be due to hard water.

Luckily, our team of experts has the knowledge and background to deal with hard water issues quickly and efficiently. You can count on us to share ways you can tell if hard water is affecting your skin and hair.

Hard Water Dries Out Your Hair

Besides making it look less clean and shiny, hard water can make your hair break off more easily. The minerals commonly found in hard water, such as calcium and magnesium, coat your hair with a film that blocks moisture from seeping into your hair follicles.

This leaves your hair feeling dry and brittle, and it can worsen split ends and other breakage issues. Hard water can also strip your hair of color. Those with naturally curly hair may experience more frizziness as well as a lack of volume.

When you start experiencing these problems, our team can help you say goodbye to your hard water! With the installation of a home water softener, you can help keep your hair protected from minerals that may damage it. Call on Blanco AC, Electrical & Plumbing to learn more!

Hard Water Makes Skin Care An Uphill Battle

Hard water isn’t just bad for your hair — it can also negatively affect your skin.

As your body’s most exposed organ, your skin needs protection from harsh chemicals and minerals that you encounter during day-to-day life. While your body produces natural oils that help safeguard your skin, hard water strips away this protective barrier. This leaves your skin vulnerable.

Without this barrier, your skin can become red, irritated, dry and itchy more quickly. Hard water can also age your skin faster and make it feel less stretchy and supple.

By investing in a water softener, you can ensure the water coming from your home isn’t working against your skin. If you’re ready to take the steps to schedule your installation service, our team is more than happy to help!
