    So Brad had a question I had covid in December and it was horrible for me I was super sick. Anyway so one of the after effects its hair loss. Well I have thyroid problems and already had some hair loss but not bad. Well due to covid my hair has been falling out in chunks! In the morning, before and after the shower and while in the shower. I'm literally balling my eyes out of how much hair I've been losing. My doctor says they can't do anything I have to wait the 90 days it's past that and then some since the "so called effected stage of side effects should be done" I'm still having issues is there anything that I can do to help me save some of my hair and or help not fall out so badly or shampoo or treatments? I already take vitamins and biotin.... I just really need some help and ideas I'm just tired of barley touching my head or not and it iust falling out in chunks...😭😭😭

    It's not just hard water that can be damaging. Chlorine can also be really bad. I moved to a new country and my hair almost instantly turned to crap (brittle, dull and really frizzy), which confused me because the water here is suuuper soft - some of the softest in the world apparently. But they put a TON of chlorine in it. My shower literally smelt like a pool, it's gross. So I bought a chlorine filter and my hair still isn't perfect but it's MUCH better.

    ok ok.OK. Brad you have gotten major respect from me, your dislike of coconut oil (a miracle ingredient I swear by) did have me questioning your knowledge but the fact that you just shared knowledge that I have only ever heard from trichologist RSclubr (Afobe Atoyebi- check her out she shares huge amount of knowledge based on science aimed at hair health not just how it looks which is what most stylists are focused on. She doesn't give much advice for us wavy haired girls out there because that's not her hair type- so that's why I go to Brad). I have been through a decent amount of hair people- through RSclub, blogs, to salons and they never told me and I guess rarely know this! Which is why Afobe completely changed my hair care regimen. She completely changed it. Since with wavy 2b-c hair I can go straight or curly easily, I find it much better to use heat using ways so that I have little to no heat damage followed by a period of going natural so give variation and make sure I'm not damagong my wave. I will definitely be trusting your advice more often because of this, Brad! Been watching your videos for a while and I finally subscribed!

    Love this video because a lot of people do not realize that hard water (especially well water) ruins your hair. Those of us living in Florida, or by the coast, usually deal with a well for our water source. I purchased my home with a brand new well and it ruined my hair. Made it brassy, brittle, frizzy and just terrible. I ended up buying a whole water filter for the well for my home that filters out all the iron, magnesium, sulfur and other minerals. If you can't afford this then they make special shampoo for hard water, Malibu is a great brand. Also don't buy a shower head filter...sorry Brad but that won't do anything. 🙂

    Hard water isn't just bad for your hair, its bad for your skin too. You want tight, super itchy skin no matter how much moisturizer you use? Hard water can do that for you. The town I live in currently doesn't have terrible water but its not the best either. Two towns over where I used to live had such hard Water that it easily measured twice as hard as the national average. Had thinning, frizzy hair with a dry, itchy scalp and my skin was the same as the scalp. It was a friggin nightmare for three years. Even though the water here us so-so hard, I use argan oil after and in between washings to help keep my hair from turning to straw and I also use moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.

    Hello Brad, First of I want to say how much I love your videos. There is definitely something that I learn from each video even if it doesn’t necessarily apply to me and my hair. I just watched you video on hard water. Which I do in fact have. Because where I live, we have water that comes from a well and you need a water softeners I break down the water, which we have. Would it be a good idea to have the additional water filter? Also what would you recommend buying salon hair masks? I do use a few products from Redken and I like them, do you think they’re a reputable brand and what masks would you recommend for them? Also is there any additional salon products that you would recommend for scalp care/hair growth that don’t have oil in them? Sorry for all the questions but I would appreciate your insights. All the best from a long time subscriber. ♥️✌🏼

    @bradmondo So I know I have very mineral rich water but we have a well. Which causes everything my water to stain... yes I said stain our sinks and bath tub. I have started suffering from serious tangling. That being said I have hella thick hair. Like I have a side shave and the length is pretty long. Probably low back length, and when I side part you literally can’t tell that the side is shaved. I constantly break the thick elastic hair ties . I was born into a family of cosmetologists my mom is a master stylist and thought for many years and my sister, niece and sister in law are all stylists and have inquired that I use good products. And my battle with my water has been terrible. Thanks for the tips!!! I’ll be looking into all of them!

    I answered yes to every question... I am doing all I can do for my thin hair, I knew growing up when I got to be the age I am now that my hair would be REALLY THIN...because my grandmom and mother have REALLY THIN hair~ like you can literally see thier scalp I knew it was just a matter of time. But the hard water I have where I live sure as hell isn't helping me none either... And through ALOT of wasted money,tears and trial & error, well I'm finally almost where my hair needs to be for what I have... I need to go get it trimmed but I am so scared that they will mess it up...I'm just shell shocked you might say... But the trick with thin hair and also having horrid hard water (it's literally the color of milk in a glass ~straight out of the faucet) The trick is to make sure you find a good shampoo/conditioner with lots of hydration in it...make sure its sulfate & Paraffin have to figure out what type of shampoo/conditioner works best for your hair...Like my friend she uses the OGX Renewing + Aragan Oil Products...but for me when I tried it, thats a hard No for me ~ it was like putting glue in my hair and the shit wasn't coming out . What I have found that works best for my hair believe it or not is the Main & Tail products + I take 2 Nature's own Hair, Skin & Nails gummies twice a day damaged (thanks to JCPenny's Salon 5 yrs ago~ we won't get into that~ still pisses me off like you just don't even wanna know, Let me just say hair was soft, healthy and down to my waist and when I went to the Salon to have them color my hair blonde (because I am mostly white grey with dark brown underneath~ yes that is my natural hair color), well I left with noodle fried hair broke off above my sholders) but now 5 yrs later my hair is soft ~ feels a bit thicker and it's almost healthy again & I'm no longer getting the blisters on my head when I wash my hair...And my hair is finally growing again... You have to eat healthy, take vitamins, find the right hair care products that work for you and IF you have HARD ass water like I do...yes you have to buy tons & tons of spring water to wash your hair's just alot of work on a daily basis...
