Regarding hard water - if you're not in the market for a water filter at this time, my suggestion is that you use distilled water. This is what I did for many, many moons before we were able to get our water softener fixed.
It's a bit of a pain, but you get used to it, and it really makes a difference. At the time I did this I had very long hair - almost waistlength, and I'd buy two gallons of distilled water. One I used to wash and the other I used to rinse. After you've done it as few times you'll figure out just how much to use for each task. The results appeared after about a week and a half or so of doing this. My hair really started to perk up and became much more manageable, with a lot more shine.
