Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! I have recently moved to a house where the water in that area is much harder than where I was before. I ended up cutting my hair after moving in because it was hard to manage from the hard water. I wish I would have bought this before I cut all of my hair off! This works perfect for hard water. After the first use I felt a difference. My hair is much softer and not so dry anymore!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well water must have This stuff does what it says, removes the build up from the use of well water. I have found on my hair I only use maybe 2-3 times a week, since it is a type of clarifying shampoo, my hair does feel a bit dry if used in excess. I follow with the hard water conditioner, and it leaves my hair clean and soft, and brings back the color of my hair that well water has a tendency to discolor over time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard water shampoo and conditioner I didn't see a difference at all. It dries out my hair to the point that even a 85 dollar hair mask didn't help! It also didn't get rid of the iron stains in my hair which really sucked! I wasted my money and caution everyone to be careful what you get bc all the reviews are great for this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great job My 4c hair felt really clean after the wash. Breakage was much less too. Following up with a deep condish was necessary since it stripped my hair of everything

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Low Poo I really like this shampoo. It doesnt live my hair dry like some other shampoo. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just another clarifying shampoo I don't know why this is labeled as a "hard water shampoo", when really it's just a clarifying shampoo. Sure, it will get rid of build-up on your hair from hard water deposits, but so would any other clarifying shampoo. I bought it because I was hoping for a shampoo that would counteract the effects of the acidic pH level of hard water. This shampoo has done nothing for that. Additionally, I find it to be very drying, even when used just a couple of times a week, leaving my hair flat, limp, and my roots become oily much more quickly than with other shampoos (I suspect this is due to the fact that it contains harsh sulfates). Overall I am very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my hair!!! I am very pleased with this product. We have iron in our water and my hair had started to look orange. As long as I use this shampoo, my hair looks great!

Is it good for black hair

Asked by: everette
I have dyed auburn hair and it doesn't strip the color. I would say yes.

My hair is naturally very dark brown, and is dyed (by my hairdressers) black. Will this shampoo really remove iron and copper-based green and red tones from my hair?

Asked by: iloverupertforever
I am not sure about the copper tones in brown hair, but it will certainly remove iron. I have very VERY hard water where I live and use this every morning. I have bleached blonde hair and use about a tablespoon of purple shampoo and a tablespoon of hard water shampoo. My hair doesn't turn red or green.

I have well water and has a lot of iron in it. I have blonde highlights in my hair and I recently noticed my hair turning brassy. Would this be a good shampoo for it? 

Asked by: Wvgirl02
Yes, I believe it will. I have blond highlights and have been using this shampoo for years. I would use it everyday for at least two weeks. Once the brassiness go away, I'd use it once every week or two. It is more gentle on hair than other brands, and I have used it exclusively in the past.

I have fine colored treated hair that gets oily everday. I live in ohio and was wondering if this would be a good fit? I have tried so many shampoos and conditioners that I'm frustrated and not sure what to use anymore. Help please

Asked by: Patty2017
I have thick dry hair normally but since moving to the country I found my hair getting oily in 1 day. Since using this shampoo I don't have that problem anymore.  I do dye my hair as well. My hairdresser said the water is hard on keeping the color. The shampoo helps. Without the shampoo the color was gone quite quickly. Now I find it is back to normal.

Hi, I am originally from MA, which has very soft water and I go to school in Kentucky. I have very fine hair, and my hair struggles with adjusting to harder water and I have tried everything, including Malibu hard water wellness, so is Ion better?

Asked by: Brianna C
I found Ion a good shampoo and my hair was better.

Is this a chelating or clarifying shampoo and if not do you carry chelating shampoo?

Asked by: Ebonilex
My hair turned orange after having blonde highlights. It removed the orange. I have used it for years to prevent the orange from happening again. I would say chelating but can't answer on their behalf.

I am trying to keep my hair platinum blonde but my hard water keeps turning it yellow even though I use a purple shampoo. Will this fix my problem?

If this well help me, do I still need a purple shampoo or do I just use this everytime I wash my hair and it will keep my hair platinum?
Asked by: myr
Hello, and thank you for your question. Yes, ion Hard Water Shampoo helps prevent build-up of hard and well water minerals like Iron, Calcium, Magnesium and Copper that can cause dryness, damage, discoloration, and dullness. This shampoo is color-safe.

Can I use this every time I shampoo my hair?

Asked by: Renae2083
You may but pay attention to the moisture level in the hair. If the hair begins to feel dry back of use to every other or every 3rd time.
