3 Things Your Hairdresser Wants You to Know About Hard Water Hair

Did you know the beginning of personal hygiene dates back to prehistoric times? In fact, the earliest humans understood that water, from the lakes and rivers they lived near, had the ability to clean things, or at least rinse mud off their hands. Realizing they needed more than just water to truly clean themselves, people began making soap as early as 2800 B.C. With the creation of soap came the problems we still face today, soap scum. It’s a problem that dates back nearly 5,000 years.
