About 70% of the Earth’s surface is water. An average human being’s body has water in the range of 60 – 65%.
So, it does not surprise to know that even hair contains water. That is the reason it is common to suggest drinking water for natural hair growth.
Water does not form the largest part of hair. The prominent part of hair is a protein – Keratin. Water forms the second significant portion of it. Rest are the trace elements like minerals, vitamins, and color pigments. Among them Copper, zinc, b-complex, and melanin are significant.
Variation in any of these elements leads to hair problems. Be it hair loss, losing color or dry hair issues.
