Well Water DreadLocks… Get Rid of Them!

26 Jun


We have been living in our current house for about a year now and have a well.  When we first moved in my hair started coming out in handfuls and the hair that was left starting to turn into a serious case of dreadlocks. Don’t get me wrong, dreadlocks are cool, but I don’t happen to be in the Rastafarian mood at this moment.

After many hours, days and months of internet research,  I started trying every conditioner known to man and was just shy of sleeping with a bucket of Crisco on my head.  As a last resort, we called a water filtration company who came out and gave us an estimate for $5000.00 and that “MIGHT” fix our problem.  Needless to say, we did not go that route.

The next time I went to the store, I picked up a couple of jugs of distilled water and put them in my shower. With my next shower, I washed my hair and then did a final rinse with the shockingly cold ass distilled water. I got out of the shower and OMGosh…. could this be true….brushed my wet hair! It couldn’t be this easy could it, after 6 months of conditioning experiments and woe.  Well, it turns out that it was just that simple.

I now give my hair a little rinse with the distilled water after each wash and I am happy to be dreadlock free.

Now I don’t have to go out and buy a Rasta hat to keep my locks in and now you don’t have to either!

(although you would look smashin’ in one of those mon…lol)
