Hair that is healthy should be full of vitamins, minerals, and nutirents. But, you should know that some minerals build up on the hair instead of feeding the hair. You can have this mineral build up if you wash your hair in Hard Water. Hard water is water with high levels of minerals present.
Many minerals effect the hair. However, I believe that you should pay close attention to four of them.
1. Silica, found in AZ Sonoran Desert, is generally useful. However, it's presence on the hair strand is usually accompanied by Calcium and Magnesium. Together these three create insoluble deposits on the hair strand, choke the hair follicle at it's root; stops growth, and causes dandruff-like symptoms.
2. Magnesium causes the hair to lack shine.
3. Calcium determines the hardness of water. It's presence dries out the hair, repels chemical alterations, retards hair growth, and creates dandruff-like flakes on the scalp.
4. Chlorine is an oxidizing agent that is added to drinking and pool water to kill bacteria. When the hair is wet it feels gummy. When the hair is dry it feels like straw. It's presence alone can make any existing condition worse.
If you recognize any of these symptooms in your hair you must act immediately. Expose your hair to vitamins C & E; as they will begin to restore the hair's moisture and manageability. Seek a Hair Care Professional for a trim and to establish a hair care plan to ensure your hair grow back healthy. Be patient and know that it will take time for 100% recovery. Happy Growing!
