Not only you can eat your way to sensual hair, you can also drink your way to sensual hair!
For a start, ensure that you’re getting sufficient water. Medical advice varies depending on the research studies used and the temperatures at the time. In warmer times of year when you’re sweating more, you’ll need to drink more to keep your body hydrated.
One easy way to check whether you’re dehydrated is to lie your hand flat on a table and pinch together the skin on one of your knuckles. If it bounces back into shape immediately without you moving the hand, then the fat layers under your skin are hydrated sufficiently. If the pinched skin stays pinched together or very slowly moves back into place, you’re probably at least slightly dehydrated.
Why is this important to your hair? Because if your body is dehydrated, then cell division and growth doesn’t happen quite as well as it should, leading to slower hair growth and less strength in your hair. So for an easy way to improve your hair – just drink plenty of water a day. Research varies on whether this water should be drunk by itself, or whether any liquids (like tea, juice, soups) can be counted. Use the knuckle dehydration test if in doubt.
So If I don’t drink water my hair could stop growing?
Your hair will become parched if you don’t drink the daily minimum of water, and your cells that help hair growth will stop reproducing. Without enough water, your hair will become brittle and dry. Water conditions the roots of your hair to the tips. Your roots consume the water inside your skin and then hydrates your hair.
We all know to drink at least eight glasses of day, but a lot of people don’t know that the water we consume generates hair growth, in addition to helping your skin feel supple. Even more, water can speed up your metabolic rate helping you to stop from overeating. But how much water does a person need? Here’s how to calculate how much water you should drink a day for both health and weight loss benefits.
Your weight: The water you drink varies bv weight. The more you weigh, the more water you need. A woman who weighs 110 requires less water than a man who weights 200.
Multiply by 2/3: You need to multiple your weight by 2/3 (or 67%) to determine water intake. For example, if you weigh 115 pounds, multiple that by 2/3 and see how much you need to drink.
Activity Level: Our weight differentiates how much what we need. But your activities also play a part. If you work out, you expel water as you sweat. For every 30 minutes you sweat, you need to add 12 ounces of water. So if you work out for 45 minutes, you ahould add 18 ounces of water to your diet.
Cranberry juice is full of antioxidants, as well as vitamin C. It’s also full of polyphenols, which are thought to protect against cancer and improve cell division, as well as helping to break down and flush out toxins from the body – instead of these toxins being released from the body in the hair, making your hair brittle and easily broken. Drink a glass of cranberry juice a day to flush out toxins, break down kidney and bladder stones, and to improve your hair’s growth and quality.
Green tea contains catechins, a type of antioxidant. Any antioxidant can remove free radicals created by toxins from the body and may help to protect you from cancer. They also, like polyphenols, can help to improve cell division in the body, so that your hair grows strong and flexible.
Freshly-squeezed fruit juice is an easy way to get a quick nutrient hit without doing much in the way of food preparation or cooking. It’s not a good idea to drink too much fruit juice, because it contains too many of the fruit sugars without the fiber that goes with them in the raw fruit, but a couple of glasses of juice a day can give your health – and hence your hair’s health – a good boost. If possible, get hold of a slow juicer (see my recommendation). These squeeze juice from the fruit slowly, whereas regular mechanical juicers tend to juice fast enough to slightly heat the juice as it’s processed. To get the most benefit from the juice, you want as little heating and processing as possible. Try not to store juice for more than a few hours – juice is best for you when it’s as fresh as possible.
