I'm starting to think it's a myth because I drink plenty of water everyday yet my hair is still the same length. WTF?
Does water really make your hair grow?

Understand what hair is made of.
The same material that your nails and skin is made of.
You want them to grow healthily , a good way is to get adequate protein intake and good hydration (as in drinking water , moisting your skin with water will only dry it out faster later on)0

I don't know about that I mean water is very important to help the whole system in your body to function more properly, but the most important thing for people to realized is how the hair in your body functions the hair cycle goes through three different phases Anagen phase, catagen, and telogen phase so it all depends what phase your hair is going through the anagen is the growing phase in your hair, the catagen is the resting, and the telogen phase is the hair shedding phase where your hair falls out, the hair on your head goes through the telogen phase for about 3 months and the anagen phase 2-7 years for the average human everyone is different. Unless you had some disease such as alopecia areata these phases shouldn't be disrupted or its time shouldn't change. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hair_follicle
This tells you about the phases your eyebrows and body hairs go through.0
I've never heard that water directly effects hair growth.0
Well yes water actually hydrates the body and helps to regulate the circulatory system, which feeds the hair follicle, which then stimulates hair growth.0
it certainly doesn't it harm it from growing. Drinking water if it did anything would be such a small difference it wouldn't be noticeable0
Yes it does but I think you mean if you drink lots of water it will grow. What you are suppose to do is water your hair like a plant every morning. Adding fertilizer enhances growth by up to 70% also/.1

Protein, not water is what makes your hair grow. There are special nutritional supplements that are just for skin, hair and nails that work really well, but are slightly expensive. A cheaper option would to dissolve a tsp of brewer's yeast in water or orange juice each morning and drink it, preferably before breakfast. Most people say it works wonders.0
It's not that easy. You have to watch your diet as well and take care of yourself0
