HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU HEARD THAT YOU SHOULD DRINK 8 GLASSES OF WATER A DAY?

The Health and Beauty Benefits of Water

How many times have you heard that you should drink 8 glasses of water a day? It’s common knowledge but do we really know why we need to drink that much water? Listen up!
Your body is mostly water and comprises about 60 percent of your body weight. According to the Mayo Clinic, water:
  • Eliminates wastes through urination, perspiration and bowel movements
  • Keeps your temperature normal
  • Lubricates and cushions joints
  • Protects sensitive tissues

Can dehydration cause hair loss?

While short-term dehydration will not harm your hair, chronic dehydration can cause hair loss. … Since your hair follicles lack water, they will stop producing new hair. If you’re chronically dehydrated, your follicles won’t grow enough hair to replace the strands that are shed naturally, resulting in hair thinning.

Water and other natural remedies can help you hair loss.

Besides water purification, vitamins and lifestyle changes have also been shown to encourage hair growth and even reduce hair loss. Below are several tips on how to keep your tresses healthy and vibrant through nutrition and drinking water.

Natural ways to grow hair and reduce hair loss

  1. Protein: Hair is made of protein so a protein deficiency can cause hair loss. Add protein to the diet by including meat, tofu, dairy, or protein shakes.
  2. Iron: The mineral iron helps increase circulation in the scalp which will fuel hair growth. Foods that have high iron content include liver, apricots, and raisins.
  3. Vitamin A: Helps create vibrant hair because it works with the fat synthesis in the hair follicles and spurs hair growth. Vitamin A can be found in carrots, kale, eggs, and squash.
  4. Vitamin B: Niacin (B3) promotes blood circulation to your scalp thereby encouraging hair growth. Biotin and the complex B vitamins are needed to grow hair. Vitamin B can be found in whole grains, fruit, eggs, fish, meat, and milk.
  5. Water: The hair shaft is comprised of one quarter of water. Drink at least 4 to 8 cups of water a day to stay hydrated and grow healthy hair.
  6. Reduce alcohol & cigarettes: Drinking alcohol reduces hair growth and smoking cigarettes reduces the blood flow to the scalp.

There are various benefits of drinking water for hair growth. Those are as follows:

1. Water is the root source of energy for each and every cell of our body. It includes those cells too, that are responsible for hair growth and its health.

2. Water nurtures cells and provides them required hair vitamins.

3. It generates magnetic and electrical energy which is considered as a core power to sustain life. This is done through a process called hydrolysis.

4. The roots of the hair and our scalp have many energy-sensitive and photosensitive nerve endings. Water activates all these nerve endings and other sensors in our skin and scalp that enhances the natural vitality of hair roots.

5. Drinking enough water can also help you get rid of dandruff and hair thinning problem.

It is truly said that water is life. Not only our skin and health, but water promote hair growth too and tend to fight with other hair and scalp challenges. And even mild dehydration can sap energy from the hair roots and result into hair loss.

But did you also know all the wonderful things water can do for your looks?Enough H2O does more than keep you hydrated. It helps your body flush out toxins more efficiently. The result? Fresher and more radiant-looking skin! Water helps your skin keep its natural elasticity and suppleness.

Make sure you stay hydrated to prevent hair loss..

Correcting the factors above will usually stop hair loss.  While remedies for the hair sometimes work, the most reliable way to stop hair loss, in my experience, is with a properly designed nutritional balancing program and use the right hair care products.  It only takes 23 seconds for hair products to get into your system so ask yourself one question, “Whats in my hair products that could harm me?’

What’s the Difference? Hydrating vs. Moisturizing the Hair….

 

38811524_1486136408153030_911350244409606144_n

 

Since Monat has come out with yet another new product and I was confused at first what was the difference between the too, I decided to do some research and I just had to share this with you too.  Because if I was confused some others maybe are too. Especially if your new to the concept of  healthy hair.  I never gave my hair really one thought before I started my business about hydration or moisturizing.   As long as it looked good to me I was blind to the rest of my hair needs.   So let me share with you what I have found in regards to this topic.

Imagine a plant growing in a pot. What would happen if you only spray water on the leaves every day and never poured water into the dirt for the roots to absorb? The plant would shrivel up and die right?

With that illustration in mind, let’s now examine the definitions of Hydration and Moisture as it pertains to our hair.

What’s the Difference?

Hydrating the Hair– The process of using humectants, proteins, amino acids and critical vitamins that penetrate the hair fiber infusing and improving the absorption of water and nutrients so that the hair holds and retains moisture.

To supply water to (a person, for example) in order to restore or maintain fluid balance.
Each pore on the surface of the skin is an opening to a canal called a follicle. The follicle also contains a hair and an oil gland (sebaceous gland). The oil gland keeps the skin lubricated and feeds the hair strand that it is attached to.

Increasing your water intake will not only make you feel better, but it will also hydrate your hair from within which is where your hair comes from.
If you are not drinking enough water, no doubt, you have dry, brittle, lifeless hair.
Hydration has to begin inside of your body.

Moisturizing the Hair– The process of using butters and oils to coat the OUTER surface of the hair fiber sealing and locking down the hair shaft so moisture can not get in or out of the fiber.

Water or other liquid diffuses in a small quantity as vapor, within a solid, or condenses on a surface.
This is what is being done when you spray water on a plant or as it pertains to this topic, on your hair. Spraying water or water based products on your hair is not enough to support a healthy head of hair.

Moisturizing your hair every day is pointless if your hydration is not up to par. Once the water has evaporated you are left with the same strands of lifeless hair.

Simply Put….FIRST you HYDRATE the hair to penetrate, absorb & nourish the hair from within. THEN you seal and lock down the hair shaft with a MOISTURIZER to keep the moisture in the hair.  Moisturized hair is happy hair.

So what does this mean for your current hair regimen?

If your hair feels chronically dry, wonky, brittle, rough, or just not like itself, and your products aren’t working (even spritzing water and and other concoctions doesn’t help), your issue may be hydration levels in your hair.

This brings us to what products should you use to hydrate your hair and what product should I use to moisturize your hair.

WHY VITAMINS ARE ESSENTIAL FOR HEALTHY HAIR

There is so many myths about hair growth and I know its hard to pick one over the other when it comes to healthy hair.. I always say if one don’t work then try another.

I am going to try to help you through all the clutter when it comes to picking a vitamin.  Vitamin are really important to healthy hair along with the right shampoos and conditioners.

3 MYTHS ABOUT PROMOTING EXISTING HAIR GROWTH

Along with the popularity and success stories associated with hair growth vitamins come the inevitable myths that influence consumers’ purchasing decisions. Some may be based in fact, but most of them are simply untrue and should be ignored when seriously considering steps to support and protect the growth of your hair.

Here is a quick 1-2-3 list of some of our favorite debunked hair vitamin myths:

  • BIOTIN IS ALL YOUR HAIR NEEDS

    While Biotin is a critically important ingredient in most effective hair growth vitamins, it is not the only one. There is much more to hair growth than taking a simple biotin capsule, as it is only one integral component.

  • PRENATAL VITAMINS ARE BETTER

    Prenatal vitamins are really not ideal for promoting existing hair growth. In fact, unless you are actually pregnant, you should not consume prenatal vitamins as they may contain high quantities of unnecessary iron.

  • TRIMMING HAIR ENCOURAGES GROWTH

    Hair grows from the root, not the tip, so trimming your hair does not impact the speed or support of its growth. It may make your hair look healthy and free of split ends, but it won’t have an effect on its growth.

3 TRUTHS ABOUT PROMOTING EXISTING HAIR GROWTH

With all of the confusion about what is true and what is just a myth, here are some key truths to consider. Check out this checklist of three existing hair growth facts:

 NATURAL INGREDIENTS ARE THE BEST SUPPORT

The best hair growth vitamins on the market are the ones comprised of natural, healthy, non-synthetic ingredients. By cutting out the fillers, you’re providing your hair with the most helpful elements it needs.

CLINICAL STUDIES SHOW YOU WHAT TO TRUST.

Clinical studies and rigorous third-party testing will illuminate the hair growth-supporting vitamin blends that are worth your time and effort. Backed by scientific research, you can bank on the quality of the products.

VITAMINS ENCOURAGE THE HEALTH OF YOUR HAIR.

Always try to look for proprietary blends that include the most comprehensive assortment of vitamins, nutrients, and ingredients. Nourish your hair by utilizing vitamins like A, B complex, K, and more.

 

Know which ingredients to look for –– and which to avoid –– in a quality hair blend.

KEY INGREDIENTS IN A HIGH-QUALITY HAIR VITAMIN BLEND:

 VITAMINS

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin K
  • Vitamin B Complex (B1, B2, B3, etc.)

EXTRACTS

  • Saw Palmetto Berry
  • Bamboo Stem & Leaf
  • Flaxseed Oil
  • Borage Oil
  • Horsetail
  • Kelp

BIOTIN

KERATIN

HYDROLYZED COLLAGEN

FOLIC ACID (VITAMIN B9)

PANTOTHENIC ACID (VITAMIN B5)

 

 

Know ones to avoid:

  • MAGNESIUM STEARATE

    This “flow agent” may seem harmless, but in reality it is an unwanted and generally unhealthy additive, depending on the source. Most sources for magnesium stearate are genetically modified, and treated with high amounts of pesticides, due to its origins as a cottonseed oil base.

  • TITANIUM DIOXIDE

    Widely relied upon in vitamin manufacturing as a coloring agent and binding mineral, titanium dioxide is well-known to create health compromises in the immune system. Low-quality hair vitamin blends typically include this filler.

  • GELATIN CAPSULES

    Oftentimes, tablets and capsules don’t fully release before they pass through the body—which means the vast majority of healthful effects are wasted. Gelatin is harvested from animal byproducts, so besides excluding all vegetarians from use, it is just not as healthy as vegetable capsules.

I highly recommend:  Monats S3 SUPPLEMENT
SUPPORT SYSTEM
