Can Bad Water Make Your Hair Thin?
I was just wondering if the water supply you use to wash your hair can cause your hair to thin. My hair has been thinning the last 3 years and 3 years ago, I moved into a new apartment. The reason I suspect the water might be a factor is that when I moved in, I quickly discoverd that I couldn't drink the tap water without it irritating my throat. I've lived in plenty of places and have always been able to drink the tap water. This is the first place where I couldn't. What also changed 3 years ago is that I started exercisng regularly, which meant that I would have to shower more often, usually twice a day since I do cardio in the morning and either lift weights or do more cardio in the evening. I'm not rough on my hair and don't use shampoo any more often than I did before. But if the water is bad to begin with and I'm using it twice a day, could this be a potential reason why my hair is thinning? I'm only 30, I have a low stress lifestyle (no wife, kids, high stress job, or health issues), and there's no history of baldness in my family. I'm really hoping the water is the cause.
