I am just trying to understand my hair, to learn what works and what doesn't, to experiment, make mistakes, and to embrace my hair in it's entirety..... because Roots Don't Lie

Hey Guys,

We all hear that water is important but just in case you were wondering exactly why, here a 10 reasons to drink more water.

1.      The body is made up of about 60% water, which helps regulate body temperature, transport nutrients in the body, digestion, and circulation to name a few. Replenishing the water in the body, which is lost through breathing, sweating, urinating and bowel movement, helps to ensure the body carries out its functions properly.
2.      Water helps to transport all the toxins, and waste produced by the body out of the body. A quick way to check if you are hydrated is by the color of your urine, if its light yellow/pale/clear in color then you are hydrated but if its dark yellow/orange and has a strong smell you know you need more water.
3.      Lack of water leads to dehydration, which is when your body does not have enough fluids to carry out its daily functions.
4.      Drinking water helps to fill up the stomach and reduce hunger while at the same time increasing your metabolism.
5.      Water has zero calories.
6.      Proper hydration keeps the joints and muscles well lubricated which reduces the likelihood of pain/soreness.
7.      Water helps improve skin elasticity, and leaves the skin moisturized.
8.      Water can help prevent headaches.
9.      Water helps reduce fatigue during exercise, and reduces recovery time
10.  Water helps to regulate the body temperature.
8 ounces a day is a good starting point
Note: Please make sure to consult your doctor before engaging in physical activity.
