When was the last time you had a cup of water? If you don’t remember, after you finish reading this blog, I encourage you to get yourself a glass - 😊.
We have just transitioned out of the hottest July on record. Since the beginning of this year, we have been experiencing notable weather and environmental irregularities. It is with all of these happenings in mind that I want to discuss a strategy you can use to counteract the effects of these environmental happenings.
The Strategy: Stay Hydrated.
Hydration is extremely beneficial for both your body and your hair.
Hydration helps to regulate body temperature.
Hydration aids in digestion.
Hydration helps to maintain healthy organ function.
Hydration improves cardiovascular health by keeping the blood thin thereby reducing the risk of developing conditions like high blood pressure.
Hydration helps to: lubricate joints, prevent muscle cramps, and maintain muscle strength and flexibility.
Hydration boosts the immune system, making you less susceptible to illnesses and infections.
Hydration helps to flush toxins out of the body.
Hydration promotes clearer skin and reduces the risk of acne and other skin conditions.
Hydration is vital for maintaining the health and appearance of your hair. Dehydration can lead to dryness, brittleness, and hair breakage.
Hydration keeps your scalp moisturized, reducing dandruff and itchiness.
Hydration helps to promote hair growth by nourishing the hair follicles and increasing blood flow to the scalp.
Hydration keeps the hair shaft strong and elastic, minimizing the risk of split ends and hair damage.
Hydration is also crucial in regulating oil production on the scalp, preventing excessive oiliness or dryness.
To stay properly hydrated, it is generally recommended to drink at least 8 cups (64 ounces) of water per day. However, individual water needs may vary depending on factors such as age, physical activity, and climate. Additionally, incorporating hydrating foods like fruits and vegetables into your diet supports overall hydration.
Drinking water to stay hydrated is an easy step that you can take to promote a healthy body and healthy hair. So drink up . .
