Highlighting Hair With Well Water?

I have dark blonde/light brown hair now. I want to do some color highlights with foil, but my household water comes from a well. Is there something I can do to assure it won't affect the outcome of the coloring?

Your well water could have a million different things in it that might affect your dye attempt so your question is extremely difficult question to answer, however, you can take your question to a hair stylist for answers.

You could also try the dye using distilled water from a store. The distilled water has nothing that could affect the hair during the dye treatment, however, you still have the question of washing your dyed hair after the treatment.

The best answer would be to make an appointment with a hair stylist to dye your hair. She or he will then be able to examine your hair, provide the corerct dye treatment and recommend the best washing water for later on after the dye treatment.

I am assuming you can't afford a stylist and that is why you are doing your own hair. My best advise is do it at a friends house, where the water is easier on the hair. Good luck!

Has no one ever washed dyed hair in the water from your well? If not, I supposed you might have a problem, but I live in a rural area, where everyone has well water. The water in the town also comes from wells, and is chlorinated, but nothing else done to it. Others use dugout water. Everyone simply uses the water that they have.

However, the water that we have around here is very good water. Some places have a high iron content that leaves brown stains on everything. Ours is not like that. If your water is good, I think you could just go ahead and dye your hair. If you have particularly hard water that stains sinks and toilets, you might want to do further investigation.
