  • IF you can find it anymore, Aussie brand "Citrifier" was the only thing that worked to get iron stains out of my hair while growing up.

    I now live in a town with less hard water, and any shampoo and conditioner that is tinted blue (from the pro beauty supply, not from wal-mart) works to keep my hair blonde.
