We have always had hard water. I use as little shampoo as possible. No conditioner (too hard to get it out of my hair) and I don't use a blow dryer (but that is not because of the water, but because it was really damaging my hair).

When I was younger and more into hair styles and hair health (BG--before gray), I would use a lot of homemade hair masks, especially those made with bananas and honey. They kept my hair very bouncy and shiny! . I can find some of my old recipes if you want them.

Then I also used to gather rain water for my rinses (to rinse out the masks). I would take a new (clean) bucket--we get a lot of rain in Pittsburgh and put it in the back yard during a storm. Rain water left my hair really nice after the masks.

One time I tried a beer rinse--which I had read about in a ladies magazine of the day. It was supposed to be the best for those who had hard water. My dad had some rot gut beer that was skunked and he gave it to me to try. Sadly it did not make my hair soft and left a terrible smell. Maybe it needs to be fresh...I never tried it again!

Hope you find things that work for you!! My system of today with a minimum amount of shampoo is the best!!

Make a solution of 1T of vinegar with 3 cups of water and wash with that.

Use a clarifying shampoo. If possible, do your very last hair rinse with purified water.

Baby shampoo is always a good way to keep your hair clean with hard water. I also found out if you water down your shampoo just a little this also helps so much.

It makes it a lot easier to get your hair clean and all the shampoo out of your hair.

Use chelating shampoo to avoid mineral build up on your hair.
Install a water filter.
Make an apple cider vinegar rinse.
Use argan oils helps stop build up on your hair.
The acid in lemon and vinegar helps reduce build up.

To make your hair softer and it is also dye friendly and good for hair when using hard water is when you are going to wash your hair, put a few tablespoons of mayonnaise onto your hair while it is wet and let it sit for 15-20 minutes on your hair before washing. Then wash with a gently dye friendly shampoo. This is what I do because I have hard water where I live and it makes my hair look great.
