WATER AND YOU VOL 1 - ISSUE 7
WATER AND YOUR HAIR
Is it really worth it to make sure you’re drinking enough water, or is your water intake not really related to the appearance and texture of your hair at all?
Last time, we discussed water and our respiratory system. This week, we will consider our intake of water and the health of our hair.
Drinking water encourages your hair cells to function properly
Drinking more water equals more hydration. And the more your cells are hydrated, the more they’re going to function properly.
When you have properly-functioning hair cells, then your hair will grow more quickly and it will also become thicker, fuller, and more naturally voluminous too. You may not even need all those fancy hair supplies you’ve got on hand when you have enough water every day!
Dehydration may cause hair loss
Although there are many other potential causes of hair loss and dehydration is not the only one, there is a big correlation between being dehydrated and losing your hair, especially at an early age. The more water you have in your daily life, the more likely you are to keep your hair for longer.
Again, water helps hydrate your hair cells, and when your hair cells work the way they’re supposed to, your hair grows thicker, longer, and stays in place more easily too. Staying hydrated can help you fight off the risk of hair loss in some instances.
- When your hair grows quickly, this is a good sign it’s well-hydrated.
- If your hair looks shiny, it’s probably also getting enough water.
- Hair that stays strong through washing, brushing, and blow drying is also getting enough water.
By making sure you drink enough water every day, you can make sure your hair looks great, feels great, and stays just the way you want it to be for as long as possible.
