Keep Your Curls Moisturised By Staying Hydrated

Summer is well under way and staying hydrated by drinking water regularly during the day will help to keep your curls moisturised. 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 do not want to cause our curls unnecessary breakage.

BENEFITS OF WATER FOR HAIR GROWTH

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 poppin'. 

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 to be able to grow your hair.

Prevents Dandruff:

What we put inside our bodies eventually becomes the starting point for our hair. Drinking enough water can help you get rid of dandruff, flaky scalp and dry scalp problems.

Wash Day: 

Not only is it important to consume water, but washing your hair weekly will give your hair the ultimate hydration it needs. H20 is our hairs number one moisturiser, so with that said it is important to take the time and give your hair that extra bit of TLC by shampooing and deep conditioning. Giving your hair a fresh start, your hair cuticles are recovered and packed with moisture.

Top Tip:
Don’t wait to feel thirsty. By the time you feel thirsty, your body is already dehydrated. So now, you've got another reason to drink 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. What do you think? Will you include efficient amount of water for hair growth? 
What methods are you doing to protect your hair from all this heat?
We'd love to know how you are keeping your curls moisturised.
Naturally yours,
Kaisha
