Summer is well underway and staying hydrated by drinking water regularly during the day will help to keep your curls hydrated. Did you know that dehydration can have a direct impact on the health of your scalp and hair? Staying hydrated is key, and protecting your hair from sun damage is what we need to do. We don't want to cause our curls unnecessary breakage, do we?
Benefits of water for hair growth
1) Water boosts moisture
The roots of your hair supply water from your body to the hair. Our roots soak up the water and distribute it evenly throughout the strands. If the roots of your hair are highly deficient in water, your hair will eventually become brittle, dry and rough. The more water you drink, the more hydrated your strands will be and those twist outs and braid outs will forever be juicy.
2) Boosts hair growth
Drinking water facilitates the nutrients in every part of our body. Water nurtures cells and provides them with required hair vitamins from the foods you eat. Sometimes, all you need is water instead of hair vitamins. Drinking enough water daily will not only aid in hair growth, but will also help keep your scalp healthy and promote healthy hair growth.
3) Prevents dandruff
What we put inside our bodies eventually becomes the starting point for our hair. Drinking enough water may help you get rid of dandruff, flaky scalp and dry scalp problems.
4) Wash day
Not only is it important to consume water, but washing your hair weekly will give your hair the ultimate hydration it needs. It is also important to take the time and give your hair that extra bit of TLC by shampooing and deep conditioning. Give your scalp and hair a fresh start to allow hair cuticles to recover with hydration and moisture.
