Here’s how hard water shampoo and conditioner treat your hair

I mentioned in a post a while back that Blaine and I are dealing with some rather hard water in the house we live in. We have a water softener waiting to be installed, but in the meantime, our hair has taken a bit of a beating from the effects of hard water, and I ended up reaching out to my hairdresser to see if she could recommend some products or remedies.

She ordered a shampoo and conditioner pair for Blaine and I to use, said shampoo and conditioner coming from Malibu C. The Malibu C Hard Water Wellness Collection comes equipped with everything your hair desperately needs if you’re a victim of hard water, including a shampoo, a conditioner, and this funky powder stuff, and Blaine and I have been using it for about a month now.

This kit is a bit of a process to use, but understandably so. These products basically strip your hair of all of the shit hard water has contributed to it in order for it to replenish itself and look healthy again. You start out by using the shampoo, then follow this with the funky powder shit. You pour the powder into the palm of your hand, rub it together to activate it, and scrunch it throughout your hair, from roots to tip. You leave this stuff in for up to five minutes, rinse it out, then apply the conditioner.

Personally, I really don’t love how my hair feels after using the whole shebang, but again, it is to be expected. I’m certainly looking forward to returning to my coveted MorroccanOil shampoo and conditioner, but in the meantime, this stuff is doing its due diligence. I can tell it’s stripping my hair of all of the hard water residue, and it doesn’t smell half-bad, so that’s always a bonus.
