There is no need to hard-sell Yoga as a health regimen; most of us are aware of the benefits of following however short or long a yoga regimen daily. Yoga began and developed as a way of life in ancient India and continued to gain more and more credibility in the contemporary world as a fitness discipline that safeguards not just our inner and mental health but also helps cure skin and hair maladies.
There are several yoga asanas that can actually help out with hair growth. And it is no magic or hype. The science behind it is simple: Yoga and pranayama (breathing exercises) help us de-stress as it boosts and stimulates blood circulation in the head and scalp, which thereby helps in rejuvenating dry and limp hair. Healthy hair follicles not only stop
Kapalabhati: This is a conjunction of two Sanskrit words: Kapala, which means “skull,” and Bhati, which means “light.” Though it is basically a breathing exercise, it involves concentration and helps cleanse the toxins from the kapal, meaning the entire head or face region, thus promoting better oxygen supply and reducing free radicals, enabling hair growth. People who do Kapalabhati regularly say they feel lesser stress or anxiety than ever before. It is best to practice Kapalabhati early in the morning on an empty stomach.
The Bottom Line:
Do these yoga poses regularly and see your mane become thick, shiny, and healthy. Studies also show that rubbing nails together can help with hair loss as the nerves under the fingernails are directly connected to the hair follicles. When you rub your fingernails gently, the action stimulates the blood circulation in the scalp, which ultimately, can result in hair growth. There are other things that you can do, such as eating nutritious food, doing meditation, taking awe-walks, massaging the scalp with oil, and washing hair with warm shikakai pods + reetha suds.
