Water pH. Wait what?
Yes, you heard me right. We are about to dive into the importance of a balanced water pH for your hair. I know, it’s odd to think water has so much to do with the state of healthy hair but it truly does! pH is important for all aspects of health really. We are about to get very specific, so buckle up!
Let’s first talk about “hard water.” Hard water is the water that is usually coming from our bathroom sinks, showers, and more basic appliances.The name “hard water” is meaning it is our basic water that contains a certain high level of pH and harsh chemicals like: lead, chlorine, and more (depending on the city you live in.) Usually most cities contain a level of around 8.5 which is considered hard water.
Some cities have a lower/more neutral or acidic level than others, but most cities contain hard water. This high pH level of near 8.5 or higher isn’t too good for our hair and even skin! Because our hair is at a pH level of 4.5-5.5 our hard water is too high on the scale which causes damage to our hair like split ends, dullness, dandruff, and more. With that said, I have recently found a solution! Drumroll please.. a shower water filter!
About a week ago now, I had bought a shower water filter off of Amazon. I searched and searched for the best filter I could find! I came across the “AquaBliss High Output Revitalizing Shower Filter” with a whopping 30k reviews of a 4.5 star round up rating! This filter filters the hard water and harsh chemicals out of your shower water making it more balanced, healthier, and lower in the pH scale. This Aquabliss shower filter is now screwed into my shower head and I’ve been using it for about a week now.
So far I am loving it! I made another slight change to double my beneficial outcomes from my new hair washing routine, and that is to wash my hair in a cooler temperature rather than a hot temperature to prevent heat damage. It has now been a week roughly since I’ve stared my new routine and I can already tell a good difference! My hair feels so much softer and appears more vibrant and shiny now more than ever! The ends of my hair feel more hydrated and soft.
I see less breakage and more health! I highly recommend you get a shower water filter! See and feel the benefits for yourself! Here is the link to the one I have bought: (Source.)

This is an important one! For years, I had always brushed my hair when it was still very wet after my shower. Thinking it would prevent tangles and frizz. To later find out it was the one of the few reasonings of my split ends and hair thinning. Why is that?
Let’s talk about the damage that can be done from brushing wet hair. When your hair is wet, it is more prone to damage. That is because the water is penetrating your hair making it weaker and softer while the warmth of your water is opening up your scalp pores making it more easy to pull out and break when brushing. Therefore, try brushing your hair when it’s dry before you wash your hair.
When you get out of the shower let your hair air dry and then brush it once again when it has fully dried. Brushing your dry hair before you wash it prevents tangles. Now you may be wondering, how do you prevent frizz? Good question! Read my other post about “8 Must Have Hair Products For 2021” here: (Source.) It talks about a good air drying cream that you apply to wet hair to help it dry nicely and a great brush to switch over to that is less damaging to your hair.
I highly recommend you try my tips! You will see a beautiful change overtime! This routine can even help grow your hair faster but also achieve your dreamy, Pinterest inspired hair goals! 🙂
