The benefits of water on hair are numerous. Water, in its purest form, is a natural moisturizer that helps your hair stay strong and healthy.
Hair feels clean and fresh.
Water can help to remove dirt and oil from your scalp. If you're not washing your hair regularly, then this buildup will make it look dull and lifeless. It can also cause an increase in dandruff and other issues like itching or inflammation. Water also keeps hair hydrated, moisturized, and supple.
Your scalp is less dry and itchy.
One of the most important things you can do for your scalp is to clean it regularly. The skin on your scalp is as sensitive as any other part of your body, and if left unclean for too long, it can become dry, itchy and infected. When water is not present in sufficient quantities in the body (for example when we're dehydrated), our bodies will produce more oil than usual to compensate; this extra oil can block pores which leads to clogged follicles and dandruff.
In addition, water also helps keep your hair healthy by hydrating it with oxygen-rich molecules that strengthen the protein structure of each strand of hair. This means you'll have less breakage so you won't have to cut as much off when styling your mane!
One of the best ways to get more water to your hair and scalp is through drinking it -- but that isn't the only way to consider. It's important to get water directly to your strands through washing your hair and using water-based haircare products, like our REFRESH herbal hair mist.
