Oh, ok that makes sense. See prior to moving to Florida I had never lived in a place with such crappy water. For me I can do CG here in this part of Florida but not for very long without buildup and my hair when I rinse it in the water down here becomes a rat's nest. I need not only lots more poo but globs and globs of condish to detangle. I started CG when I lived in Virginia and never experienced this and we didn't have a softener then because we didn't need it. Oh and very true about the sodium water softeners. We don't drink the water either. Hubby, Me and our Cats drink bottled water. We are still experimenting with the potassium which is supposed to be better.Jerseycurl:
I used to live in Dover, DE where the water was really hard and once we lived with my m-i-l for a while and her house had a sodium water softener which I didn't like, couldn't drink the water either, tasted salty so I bought bottled. I moved here 10 years ago and I suppose by comparison it has never seemed to me that the water here is hard BUT I'm one of those that can't use Suave COs on a regular basis because their ingredients bind with the minerals in our water and cause build up pretty soon. However, other than that I have done very, very well on CG which doesn't seem to work well at all for those who have truly hard water.
