Amazing Hair Breakthrough: Ionized, Acid Water for Hair

Hair care experts recommend an acid rinse for your hair. SalonWeb.com, an online resource for professional hair salons, states that: “One of the most beneficial treatments hair can have is to be acidified

SalonWeb recommends a pH range of 3.0 to 3.5, hair’s natural ph; to close hair cuticles, and more importantly compact them as well. Acidifying benefits all hair types, from baby fine to thick, porous hair.

Acidic water rinse benefits:

  • Adds natural shine –  (light reflects off a smooth surface)
  • Detangles – Cuticle layer don’t “grab” each other.
  • Adds elasticity – Strengthen hydrogen bonds
  • Locks in moisture and protein

Hair comes out smooth and elastic, and has a natural shine, light reflects off of the smooth surfaces of the hair follicles after an acidic rinse. Hairs improved elasticity is ascribed by SalonWeb to lower pH, which has a positive ionic charge. The positive charge:

“brings hydrogen bonds from a beta state (weak) to and alpha state (strong). Hydrogen bonds account for nearly 100% of the hair’s elasticity.”

People of all hair lengths and all hair types will love the results of an acidic hair rinse.

Never Strip your hair!

Some products work by to “stripping” minerals from hair. However Tom Porter, founder and CEO of Malibu Wellness states in the FAQ’s for Edward Wadsworth’s salon of Portland Oregon: While minerals build up in hair, avoid using products that contain “hydrochloric acid or other strong natural acids that would melt hair.” Acidic water from a water  ionizer has a range of 3 – 3.5, ideal for hair.

The solution to long term hair care

Water is ionized in a process known as electrolysis, which produces both acid and alkaline water. A little known secret is that water ionizers normally sold to make drinking water provide ionized acidic water in the ideal pH range for hair.

Clean water allows mineral deposits in hair to gradually dissolve. Life Ionizers® uses Vitamin C Ceramic Block™ (patent pending) filtration technology which is highly effective against hair damaging chlorine. Life’s 9000 series produces acid water in the 3 – 3.5 pH range, making it the perfect choice for hair.

Water Ionizer Benefits for Your Hair:

  • pH Balanced for your hair
  • Harmful acidic minerals filtered out
  • Best filter for chlorine removal

Life Ionizers® provides a full range of ionizers from home use, to large commercial ionizers capable of supplying the needs of a large hair salon. Every Ionizer sold by Life comes with a free pre-filter customized to remove mineral deposits and other toxins from the water the ionizer is to be used with.

The nicest part of having a water ionizer is that you get as much ionized water as you want. Simply drench your hair with it; no hair-melting chemicals are used to make the water, it never runs out!
