Well water. Ugh. Tell me about it. Is yours colored blonde, too? I've got an orange-y patch right on my front layers on one side I guess where I smooth my wet hair back in the shower and it's right where the water hits. I just started using a violet mousse to rid of it as that darn Malibu is so hard to come by.Oh, and having "well water" wreaks havoc on my tresses, making them orange-ish, so I have to use a Malibu shampoo and conditioner daily to remove the iron, etc.
I have naturally straight hair always with a side part and long layers. Updos for me are either a severe side-parted, low, slicked down ponytail or or a higher ponytail still with the side part but the sides raked in to form a kind of messy mo-hawk for a little spunk.
