Monthy Review #37

So in May I went on a roadtrip and spend a night in Nashville. I washed my hair and it air-dried to perfection. (I have no pictures, I was on vacation)

I thought maybe it was my travel shampoo that was giving me such great hair. So I washed my hair at home with it...nope. same old same old. So I began to think maybe, just maybe, it was the water. So I looked up some water maps and found A LOT of conflicting information online. According to some maps NY was just "somewhat hard" and TN and MA (where I had such great hair in college) were in pristine soft water. In other maps it was exactly the opposite. In still others totally different. Seriously just google usa water hardness map - it's absurd. NYC is widely lauded as perfect hair water by many beauty sites and blogs. So for a while I hemmed and hawed. I thought about sending a water testing kit to my TN hotel - but it seemed like that was too big a risk for a hotel to take on my behalf. Finally I figured a relatively cheap way to test might be to buy a one time use pack of hard water hair treatment. If it did something I'd pursue this further...if not I'd throw my hands up. It totally worked. my hair was easier to wash, softer, shinier, voluminous, had deeper color. shit! So somehow even though my water provider's reports say our hardness is low my hair begs to differ. Huh. So now that it worked, the saga continues. Will I return to Nashville to snag a water reading? Will I have to buy a super expensive in-shower water softener? Or will I just up and move to Portland, OR where all the maps say the water is soft? stay tuned!
