Area H2O Hard Water Shampoo – Normal Hair is revolutionary. Scientifically formulated by biochemists it works to combat the effects of mineral deposits on hair in hard water areas.
Water is categorised into three types, Hard, Medium and Soft. The more minerals water contains the 'harder' it becomes. As water becomes 'harder' it also becomes more damaging for our hair as it binds tiny limescale molecules to the lengths, soft water however can cause hair to become slippery and unmanageable.
Different water types affect hair in different ways. Area H20 Hard Water Shampoo – Normal Hair is designed to act as a magnet, attracting mineral ions, allowing you to wash them away easily. This means your hair will look and feel noticeably cleaner, smoother and shinier.

I recently moved back to London after living in an area with normal water and I instantly noticed a change in my hair. It became frizzy, limp and I couldn't just leave it without using straighteners or blow drying.
I have used this shampoo three times now - I noticed a difference from the first use, but now my hair has gone back to normal. It feels soft, full of volume and no frizz!
I will definitely be buying this again.

If you live in a hard water area and needs a shampoo for that, look no further. This is simply the best shampoo I’ve ever used. It might look nothing special and doesn’t contain any fancy ingredients like essential oils. But it does what it says on the tin. It makes washing your hair with hard water much easier and my hair loss reduced while using it. The scent is light, citrus like, and pleasant.

The advertising is good, but had disappointing results. No difference to hair. Did not leave it squeaky clean as other reviews claim. Continue to have mineral build up. Need a normal quantity of shampoo for a lather (not concentrated like it claims). Hair still felt sticky same day and needed to wash hair the next day as it would look greasy. Great smell - smells like a Marc Jacobs perfume. But that's about it. It wasn't bad, just that considering how much it cost, I was aggrieved that the results were no better than a normal shampoo.

Great product to have come across. Excellent for a city like London, where there's a lot of hard water. If you want to take care of your hair, I'd really recommend this shampoo.

Since moving to the south coast 3 years ago my hair had really suffered. I was washing it everyday but it never felt clean! It was looking dull and lifeless. I also had an itcy scalp from harsh mineral build up! This shampoo has helped so much, hair is left feeling Clean and glossy and I don't have to wash it every day! Smells good too! Only downside it's a bit pricey!

I come from a lovely soft water city and have been living in a terrible hard water town for the past 8 years. Finally I've found a shampoo that works! Doesn't do miracles with my curls but at least makes it look good. Just need a filter in my shower head and that'll be me sorted.

Leaves your hair literally squeaky clean! For maximum softness and shine I find it's best to use an intensive conditioner afterwards (though I haven't tried the matching conditioner, which may do the job).

This Area H20 Shampoo for Hard Water Area is brilliant! I use so little to get a great lather and my hair is the best it has ever been. Try it and you will see too.

Whenever I buy a new shampoo, there is always a thought in the back of my mind, prohibiting me from getting my hopes up too much! Youve been here before, itll say. Youve been promised illustrious shine and voluminous body before! And my heart sinks a little bit, because I know its true. Im looking for A-list hair; hair that shines even in the darkest of rooms! After years of dying my hair and making it fade more and more, Im essentially looking for a miracle.
When I stumbled across Area H2O, something told me that this would be different. It didnt promise the same things the high street brands promise, I wasnt given allusions to Jennifer Aniston or another A Lister, I was simply told that normal hair is revolutionary and given my aggression towards my hair in the past few years, isnt that really what I wanted? Although I never listen to the alleged scientific jargon on the bottles or in the advertising campaigns, something made me believe that this would be different; because it works with the water in your area, it suggests a thorough clean to remove the molecules in my hair that I didnt even know existed! The real question now is, though, does it work? The answer is yes. As it is concentrated, I only needed a small dollop in my hand and it massaged really well into my scalp; it gave easy coverage and lathered extremely well. How did it feel? It actually felt extremely clean. Bizarre, right? That a shampoo makes your hair feel really clean? Yes, actually, because using other shampoos doesnt make it feel the same way this does. It makes it feel as though youve washed your hair for the very first time its confusing, but its true.
I would recommend Area H2O to anyone who is looking for a brand new vigour to their hair I dont use it every day, but alongside the other shampoos and conditioners I use, but whenever I do use it, my hair feels more alive, softer and generally more healthy than it does the rest of the week. Its something I would definitely recommend to anyone.

I had never considered that hard water could be the reason that my hair felt so dry and coarse. Having discovered these products I have been overwhelmed with the incredible results. My hair feels soft and silky whilst living in London which is something I have never experienced before. A MUST-HAVE hair product!
