Not drinking enough water and hair loss

Not drinking enough water and hair loss

Hair loss can be caused a number of different factors including, genetic factors, health, hormones,  but lifestyle also plays a big part. Poor diet and nutrition both encourage hair loss. 

Another reason for hair loss is often overlooked, and that’s dehydration.
Our hair needs water, otherwise growth will slow down or even stop.

This leads to brittle hair and split ends, which further damages hair growth.
 If you are dehydrated, you aren’t transmitting enough energy to the scalp because your body will use what little hydration it has for other key parts of the body.

Water isn’t just vital  for hair growth, it is for hair health too.  Your hair will become more resistant to problems like dandruff if you get a lot of water into your system.  Did you know that around 25% of the weight of each hair strand comes from water alone? Without enough hydration, your hair will lose both strength and volume.

Hydrating your body is incredibly important. If you can up your water intake, then your hair will grow faster, thicker and stronger.  
If you are doing everything right but not seeing any improvement to your hair, get some water in your system!
This Study shows that hair loss can be accelerated by dehydration. 
Upping your water intake and improving your diet and nutritional intake is essential to improving hair growth.
