You do not even realise how bad it may be to wash your hair with hard water. Sediment and pollution, which are in the tap water, can seriously damage the strands and irritate the scalp. Fortunately, there is a simple way to prevent such damage. It is about chelating the hair – in other words – cleansing it with special shampoos.
What is hair chelating?
Chelate is nothing else but using hair products containing Tetrasodium EDTA. This substance can bind mineral sediment and remove it from the surface of the strands. Such ingredient can be found in many popular shampoos. Interestingly, it is a component of shampoos designed for people who often use swimming pools. How to chelate your hair? Just wash it with a cosmetic containing Tetrasodium EDTA. Some hair maniacs recommend that you apply Coconut oil before washing your scalp and hair. Leave it overnight and wash off with a chelating shampoo in the morning.
What are the effects of chelating hair?
Chelating cleanses the scalp of sebum, dandruff and dead epidermis. The use of Tetrasodium EDTA shampoos prevents split ends and other damage. The hair becomes squeaky clean, soft, smooth, and gains a natural shine. Besides, the strands are clearly stronger, nicer and less susceptible to damage. Moreover, the Coconut oil used before the procedure provides the skin and hair with many valuable ingredients, including vitamins, minerals and fatty acids. It also ensures the appropriate moisture level and thorough regeneration of the strands.
What shampoos do I use to chelate my hair?
If you are going to chelate your hair, you should look for products containing the Tetrasodium EDTA ingredient. As it turns out, popular SLS purifiers are not needed at all. Try out one of the following products: soothing shampoo with the extract of lavender from Johnson’s Baby, Joico K-Pak Chelating Shampoo, Dove Repair Therapy Silk and Sleek, Seboradin regenerating shampoo or L’biotica Biovax Latte.
