Yes a common cause of high blood is due to dehydration. A person that doesn't stay hydrated enough is prone to get high blood pressure leading to hypertension.

You should make sure you stay properly hydrated drink something even if you don't feel thirsty. It's best to have a drink of something before you even feel thirsty to stay properly hydrated.
