Yeah, I know lol...I put well water in the thread title to get the attention of people who have well water. You're correct though, it is indeed the softener and salt that were causing my and my mom's hair loss. I did a thorough test on my water with a water kit back when I had this issue, and everything came out normal except the alkalinity, which was a little high.

I have the same problem above my temples -- mainly my left temple. I believe it's because I sleep on my left side. (My hair is a little thinner in one spot on my left side.) I use a satin pillowcase, but I shuffle around a lot in my sleep.

Do you wear your hair up a lot? Do you keep a tight or loosely tied updo?
