Hair Hazards Of Well Water
by Cher

"For most of my life I had gone through it with no hair horror stories. Mainly because I had never done anything major to my hair like colorings or far out haircuts. When I was pregnant with my first son 20 years ago, I cut my waist length hair off to top of shoulder length. It was a rounded style with feathered bangs. About 18 mos. later I let it grow out again. I usually let my hair grow long to my waist or longer then after awhile would cut it to my bra strap then let it grow back again. I did this numerous times throughout my life. As a teenager I had thigh length hair. When I was married in 1977 it was waist length. So, I varied in my lengths of hair."
