Three Ways your Body Benefits from Home Water Treatment
We have spoken at length about the benefits your home sees from using treated water. From improving the performance and longevity of appliances to less time spent scrubbing, removing hard water just makes life easier! But did you know that your body benefits, as well? Let’s take a look at some of our favorite “side effects” of using treated water at home!
- Maybe You’re Born With it…
…or maybe it’s soft water! Hard water strips your hair and skin of natural and needed oils, leaving your hair susceptible to damage and removing the natural softness and shine you were born with. Hard water also binds detergents to your hair follicles, leaving them waxy, heavy, and dull. Hard water may also lead you to suffer from a dry, itchy scalp, which will entice you to shower more often, which perpetuates the cycle of dry hair and build-up.
Soft water is also better for color-treated hair, leaving behind more pigment and better condition! This results in a more vibrant color, and the ability to go longer between treatments. This means healthier hair for longer
Adding color to hair that’s holding onto a layer of buildup results in patchy pigmentation, which quickly turns muddy. The cost of the color and the potential damage to your hair from over processing to counter the hard water significantly outweigh the cost of water treatment maintenance. The confidence boost from ditching a brassy tone and frizzy style are just a fun side effect!

- Baby Soft
You were born with velvety soft skin, and there’s a chance you could have kept it!
Mineral deposits in hard water leave skin tight, dry, scaly, and itchy. To counter this, we use stronger, harsher detergents, which bind to hard water and leave behind…. Drying, scaly, itchy residue on your skin. Then we cover it with lotions, which sit on the surface, blocked by a later of soap scum we can’t see.
Soft water allows you to use less soaps and shampoos, and then rinses them clean away. It may take time to relearn your skin. The unclogged pores and softness will initially feel like you haven’t washed hard enough. That’s just a habit, and you’ve forgotten what clean but unstripped skin feels like!
Hard water can also accelerate the breakdown of collagen, the structural protein that keeps skin young. That’s right, your face washing routine is aging you, and your expensive serums and creams are just sitting on a layer of mineral deposits, not moisturizing or countering the collagen breakdown at all.
Before you take drastic measures, give soft water a shot! Your skin will thank you!
- Hydrate Like You Mean It
The cure all pill for most of what ails you? Drinking more water. Whether you’re trying to lose weight, improve your skin, increase your energy, and maintain overall health, drinking more water is the answer you’ve been looking for!
While grabbing a cold bottle from your grocer’s cooler can be convenient, it can also be very costly. Often upwards of a dollar a bottle, and served in non-biodegradable plastic, the price of water is unfathomable. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
