Many times, despite your best efforts you are unable to stop or control hair fall. You find that even the best hair growth product or hair loss treatment that your money can buy are ineffective and you end up in despair. Take a deep breath, and think clearly for a moment. Perhaps water is the culprit. It’s time to take a closer look at the quality of water you use for shampooing and washing your hair. People lose hair for many reasons and it has been found that the quality of water they use to wash their hair on a daily basis, is a significant factor in hair loss.

Let’s examine the different types of water and the likely impact they can have on your hair growth goals. While there are options like PRP treatment, let’s also find out the natural remedies for tackling hair fall due to usage of poor quality of water for hair care. There are certain types of water that are potentially harmful for your hair. Let’s take a closely look at each.

Chlorinated water:

For long, chlorine has been the favorite chemical agent preferred by local governing bodies and civic authorities to rid non-drinking purpose water of pollutants. Even the water in swimming pools is treated with chlorine. However, using chlorinated water regularly for bathing and hair care can leave your hair dry and subsequent hair loss. Before considering a hair transplant, it’s advisable to avoid exposing your hair to the water in swimming pools as well as water treated with chlorine.

Hard water:

In areas where water supply is sourced from ground sources, due to unavailability of fresh water sources, the quality of water is found to have mineral content – calcium and magnesium in particular. Such water is known as hard water and is not suitable for washing your hair or bathing without undergoing adequate purification processes.  When used for bathing and hair care untreated hard water invariably leads to hair damage such as dryness, thinning and breakage of hair. Hard water is also known to facilitate dandruff formation and damage the hair follicles, leading to alopecia and similar conditions.


Rain water:

Technically speaking, rainwater is considered the purest form of water and thus the most suitable form of water to clean and maintain our hair. But unfortunately, present day pollution levels are adding acidity and toxicity to rain water too. Pollutant-laden rainwater is a major cause of hair-related woes. Regular exposure to such rain water can result in itchy scalps and hair fall. The pollutants in rain water are also capable of weakening the hair strand and render them fragile.

Salt water:

Who doesn’t love the beach? The sand and the surf sure make you feel good. But the high salt content in the sea water as well as the ambient air are bad for the skin and hair. Prolonged exposure to sea water is likely to get your hair all dry and brittle. Cover your head when you enter the water and also rely on a conditioner for hair repair, post your beach side pleasures.

5 Natural Tips for Hair Loss Growth!

When we know that water is the factor behind hair loss, we can try a few kitchen herbs to reverse the effect. Some of these herbs contain the elements that hair growth vitamins contain too:


A rich source of antioxidants and vitamin C, gooseberry extract has been found effective in containing baldness and hair loss. Simply mix gooseberry juice with lime juice and dilute the mixture with water to concoct a hair mask for your scalp. Wash it away after an hour and see your hair glow and shine!


A common member in most kitchen cabinets, fenugreek is replete with components that are good for hair follicle health. It helps contain hair loss and promotes hair growth. A simple remedy would be to grind fenugreek seeds into a paste which can be applied to the hair. An hour later, simply rinse your hair in cold water. Follow this routine for a few weeks and you’ll be able to see positive results.


Beetroot juice is loaded with nutrients ranging from carbohydrates and protein to phosphorus, vitamins B and C, which are essentials for hair health. You can even use beetroot leaves to care your hair. Simply crush the leaves and apply the juice to your scalp to get hair that’s smooth and silky.

Onion juice:

The high sulfur content in onion juice helps boost blood circulation to the hair follicles on your scalp. This helps rejuvenate the follicle growth along with reducing inflammation. Onion juice also possesses good anti-dandruff properties. Simply crush an onion and smear its juice to your scalp. Half an hour later wash your hair with a gentle shampoo to get rid of the odor along with the dandruff.


Coconut oil is popular as a hair oil in parts of India and other parts of Asia. While it may not be practical to apply coconut oil in all environments, the fact remains that coconut has the essential nutrients and minerals necessary present in hair vitamins. You could try diluting coconut milk with some water and applying the mixture to your scalp. After keeping it on overnight, shampoo away the scalp mask the next morning.


Solutions for Hair Loss:

The impact of water on hair is reversible and once you take appropriate measures you can expect your hair to regain its lost glory. But if the situation doesn’t improve, you need to evaluate treatment options for addressing the root cause with an appropriate baldness cure.

Today, techniques ranging from hair transplant to Platelet Rich Plasma therapy or PRP for hair loss treatment are available for relieving hair fall and hair loss problems. PRP treatment involves centrifuging a small quantity of your own blood and injecting it into your scalp.
