Water and Kinky Curly Textured Hair

Love Water

It is important to understand the significance of water when it comes to making sure that your hair is healthy. Most people that have coarse or kinky curly hair tend to avoid water, for the fear of what it will do to their hair. Certain hair textures tend to shrink up when there is water that is put on it. Women find themselves avoiding water near their hair especially if they have a weave in it or their hair is relaxed. Many individuals do not want their hair to get out of control and start to kink up. But water believe it or not is this textures best friend.

I am sure you are shaking your head and saying “not my hair, it hates water”. This is not the case at all in fact your hair loves the water because this is the best moisturizer that your hair can receive. You may not like what your hair looks like once the water has hit your tresses, but that simply means that you need to add a natural product to seal in that water and maintain your unruly tresses. There are a few misconceptions when it comes to Afro-textured hair and water and in this article we are going to discuss this and why you need to have a better relationship with water for the sake of your flourishing tresses.

It is important to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Let’s make this clear that your body is made up of 70-75% water which means that it needs these 8 glasses a day to survive and make sure that all of your organs work properly. Stop drinking pop, put down that bottle and start having sugar less drinks.  For the people that say that they are not going to drink water because it is nasty and doesn’t taste good, well water doesn’t have a taste. So if your tasting something in your water either drink bottled water, get a water filter, or clean your glass you’re drinking out a little better! Drinking this minimal amount water will actually make your hair grow.

Staying hydrated is the key to getting your hair to grow because it not only hydrates your vital organs but it also helps increase your circulation overall. Having circulation in the body is important to growing hair because it increases red blood cells. Red blood cells help the hair follicles get the proper circulation it needs to stimulate your head to make the hair grow and get out of the resting phase in the cycle of hair growth.

When it comes to water and getting it on your hair, that is completely different then drinking it and for some this is a concept that they rather not attempt on a regular basis. But your hair will thank you if you simply hydrate your hair and lock in that water. It is important to wash your tresses at least at minimum of once a week. Now I am sure you’re thinking that water and kinky hair coming in contact once a week is going to kill you, especially if you have a relaxer. Well here is a myth buster if you have relaxer and wash your hair once a week it will NOT rinse out the relaxer or make your edges start to kink up. The relaxer is a chemical process and no matter how many times your hair comes in contact with water it will not wash out the relaxer. The hair is permanently straightened until it grows out more from the roots.

Once you wash your hair once a week it is important to use natural products that are not harsh on your hair to lock in that moisture. Flourishing Tresses natural hair care line has Metamorphosis Shea Butter and Unique Fighter Serum that will keep each follicle of hair moisturized. It is also recommended to keep a spray bottle of water with you to keep your hair hydrated as most hair tends to get dry during the week if the proper amount of moisture is not applied which can lead to breaking and unruly shedding.
