What is ‘Hard Water’?
Many tourists are unaware that London is a ‘hard water’ area. This means that whilst the tap water is certainly drinkable, it can be rather harsh on the skin and hair.
Hard water can be best described as water having a high level of calcium and magnesium compounds, causing limescale.
While hard water is not a health hazard, it can wreak havoc on your skin and hair. Due to the high percentage of calcium in hard water, it doesn’t properly dissolve soap or other cleaning products. This means that once one bathes with hard water, it leaves a thin film of soap curd on the skin which makes it hard for dirt and bacteria to be removed.
Hard water also contains materials that can dry out your skin, clog pores and even lead to skin conditions like dermatitis, acne and eczema.
While washing your hair with hard water, you may notice that it leaves it dull, unmanageable and lacklustre. Hard water can also cause dandruff-like build up on the scalp.
