Water is the key nutrient that keeps your hair strong, full, shiny, and at its most ideal texture. Hydrated hair is healthy hair.
For great-looking hair, try incorporating hydration into your daily rituals. Start your mornings with hot water and a squeeze of fresh lemon. Eat water-dense veggies like tomatoes and cucumbers. Bring a sleek, reusable water bottle with you whenever you’re on the go.
