Welcome to the community Matt. I see you are getting good use from this site already!....Peace
I usually don't like to push a product, but the stuff from dreadlockshampoo.com is really the best. It works in hard and soft water. And the way they fix their shipping is that you can buy 5-6 bars/bottles and the shipping doesn't go up.
Or, if you have the drive to do it, you can use Dr. B's and distilled water. It can be expensive it you buy it. Or you can make your own. It's not that hard. But the set-up can take a bit of time to build.
There is also the BS/ACV wash. But you'd have to use distilled water for that too
Nah, not pressure. Hard water is water that has a lot of minerals in it. Places near coastlines, mining areas, mountains, etc, tend to have hard water. Soft water has less minerals.
Castile soaps don't rinse out well in hard water and leave residue. I only ask because if you don't wash that often, you may not notice if it is leaving residue yet. It's more apparent when you wash more often
