Our body is made from 70% of water other 30% of other tissues. That's the reason doctors always recommended taking 8 glasses of water per day.

Only then your hairs will be nourished; so hairs get nourishment after nourishment of other body tissues.
Hence we should get nutritious food which is high in protein, calcium, iron, minerals, etc as well as your digestive ability should be well to properly absorb all nutrition from the food. Otherwise, it won't get proper nourishment due to lack of absorption even when you are getting nutritional food.
