4 Ways Drinking Water Improves Hair Growth

How to “Water” your hair for hair growth.

The most important thing we can do for our body is drink water. The Institute of Medicine has determined that the needed daily intake of water for hair growth for men and women is somewhere between two and three liters. Do you get enough water on a daily basis for your hair to grow healthily?

Internally, staying hydrated is important. It is also a factor that can contribute to a highly sought after need for longer hair. Here are four ways that drinking water can improve hair growth.

4 Ways Drinking Water Improves Hair Growth:

  1. Much like a plant needs water to grow, so does hair. Water is a key ingredient that supports vitamins, which contribute to your hair growth.
  2. Believe it or not, but water makes up almost 25% of the weight of a single strand of hair. Drinking at least two liters of water a day will help the strength of your hair, increasing growth.
  3. Dehydration immediately halts hair growth. As previously stated, our hair needs moisture (preferably soft water for your hair). When it doesn’t have the moisture it needs, your hair ends will split or become brittle. This makes it difficult for hair to grow. It is possible for one’s hair to stop growing completely if you’re not drinking enough water.
  4. Drinking water also triggers the energy that is transmitted at the scalp that runs to your hair’s end. When the roots are hydrated, this will eliminate problems like dandruff.

By drinking the water that your body needs, your skin, scalp and body will function significantly better than it would without enough hydration. There are endless benefits of water. Even something like coconut water has vitamins that will add to the health of your hair growth. For the long healthy locks that everyone strives for, the first thing to do is enjoy your home drinking water!

We're very glad we got this installed. The technician, Alberto, was very polite and thoroughly explained what he was doing and what we would need to do.

Alberto kept me informed on his arrival time. He was professional and exceeded my expectations concerning the install of the water filtration system. I also need to put a plug in for Tracy for her patience and skills at making things happen behind the scenes...a true unsung hero. They both deserve a raise!


I just had my system installed by Alberto and Jay, and I wanted to say that they rocked. Got it all in and gave me some instructions to follow, all while being determined to detail and professional. Thanks, fellas.
