Water and Hair Loss

Hair Nutrition 101
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.

Protect Your Water to Protect Your Hair
If you notice excessive hair loss ever since showering under a new water source, it is important to get a water test to determine the type of contaminants in your water so you can remove them. There are some cases where well water users notice excessive hair loss because of certain heavy metals in their water. Reverse osmosis technology is recommended for well water users to remove up to 99% of all contaminants in the water source. If your water is pure and does not seem to be the issue, it is important to visit the doctor because it may be a health issue. So, to keep your head full of thick and healthy hair make sure to wash it with the purest water possible. And in the meantime, you could also be protecting yourself from other serious diseases!
