Hydrate Your Hair Challenge!!


I started my 'healthy Aly' activities this week which includes exercise and healthy eating. Since I'm doing this I really want to make sure this benefits my hair as much as possible.

So my challenge to myself  and to you is to drink 8oz-16oz of (room temperature) water before eating anything in the morning.

Yes everybody knows that you should get your 8 glasses a day, but what you should also know is that drinking water as soon as you get up in the morning makes a major difference in your body.

  • it helps to rehydrate your body after hours of sleeping
  • it flushes toxins out of your body
  • Water helps the vitamins you take for hair growth, to do their job
  • it really aids in weight loss
  • its a quick way to knock out 1-2 glasses of water for the day :)
Water will really hydrate your hair, which means it will look moisturized and shiny.

Now this isn't some thing I'm expecting you to sign up for, but I would like you to personally challenge yourself for at least the rest of this week.

However it would be nice if you comment and let me know if you're considering it. If you feel a difference in your body and hair then let me know too.

I hope this helps you. 

Thanks for reading!

I really should drink waaaaaaaayyyy more water.  I think I can commit to drinking 1-2 glasses of water first thing in the morning so count me in!

Maybe this might kick start me into doing this long term (",)

Great tip! In the back of my mind, I always know I should be drinking more water, but I never do! I'll have to attempt this challenge along with you!

60 oz water per day drinker here! Funny this I used to hate water, but I started drinking it for my hair, then I stopped really paying attention to what it does for my hair (although I've read numerous studies that attribute hydrated hair to water intake). What I do make note of though is the positive impact it has on my skin. Less breakouts and helps maintains elasticity.

I'm still doing this.. To be honest, I am surprised I've managed this long!!!

I've been having half a pint sized glass first thing in the morning before eating or drinking. I also swap my usual juice for a glass of water at every other drink....when I remember...
