Rain water is generally softer than tap, but I have been places where the tap water is extremely soft, such as Kentucky. In Las Vegas, where I used to live, there were a lot of minerals in the water, making it very hard, and it would leave your hair a bit more coarse and stripped of natural oils.I knew a lot of people who installed water softeners for their tap water, and that helped a lot.
I understood that drinking softened water is not good for you because of the raised Sodium levels.
