The hair on our head grows from the follicle, or root, underneath the scalp. It is there where our hair is 'fed' by blood vessels at the base of the follicle, which give our hair strands the nourishment that it needs to grow. Your hair grows in a cycle and is divided into 3 main stages: Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. During these stages it is important that you are implementing the proper methods to encourage growth. Below we have listed some tips that you can use to promote faster hair growth.

Hard Water Hair: Treating Damage, Prevention, and More

What is hard water? 

Hard water is water that has high mineral content. Depending on your geographical location some water may be "harder" than others. Hard water produces a film on the hair, making it difficult for moisture to penetrate. As a result, the hair is left dry and prone to hair breakage. If exposure to hard water is left unresolved, it could even lead to hair loss. 

To test for hard water get an empty plastic bottle and fill the bottle one-third full, add a few drops of pure liquid soap and shake vigorously for a few seconds. If there is a distinct lack of fluffy bubbles and the water appears cloudy and/or milky, your water is hard.

Some ways to protect your hair from hard water is to install a shower head water filter, invest in a whole-house water softener, or apply Pure Unrefined Haitian Castor Oil into hair before taking a shower.
