washing the hair with hard water rough and difficult to comb

Use very little shampoo when you wash your hair. Take one teaspoon of shampoo for long hair and half-a-teaspoon for short hair. Dilute the shampoo with a little water before applying it. One application of shampoo is enough. For hard water, you can add a little alum to a bucket of water.

Also, after a shampoo wash, add two tablespoons of vinegar to a mug of water and use it as a last rinse. It will restore the normal acid-alkaline balance.

You can also use very little leave-in conditioner or hair serum on the hair to soften it. Apply it on the hair and not on the scalp. Diet is very important. Have a small bowl of sprouts daily and include fresh fruits, salads, leafy green vegetables, soya bean and curd in your diet. Ask your doctor to prescribe vitamin and mineral supplements.
