In brief: Yes

For some patients this is very important.
Irrelevant for others if it works for you than you should do it.

In brief: Sometimes

If your migraines are triggered by dehydration, then the most obvious, cheapest and most effective cure is not to get dehydrated.
Incidentally, the commonest cause of dehydration (except in a desert) is drinking alcohol. Alcohol, especially tequila and red wine, are very common migraine triggers for many people.
