Yoga against Hair Loss

The ancient art of yoga has been practiced since 3,000 B.C. Although seen mostly as a form of physical fitness in the West, it is a philosophical practice.

Today, yoga is used to gain strength and flexibility, relieve stress and anxiety and even treat certain health conditions. There are a number of different styles of yoga. There are postures that facilitate the reduction of extreme stress, indigestion, anxiety and poor blood circulation in the head, all of which cause hair loss.

The following are some of the yoga postures which can help you remove stress and improve blood circulation in the head. These postures can also help increase energy and blood flow to the scalp to encourage hair growth.

    Sirsasana (Headstand)
    Pavanmuktasana (Wind Releasing Pose)
    Vajrasana (Diamond Pose)
    Sarvangasana (Shoulder Stand)
    Uttanasana (Bending straight forward pose)
    Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward facing dog pose)
    Ustrasana (Camel pose)
    Sasangasana (Rabbit Pose)

Apart from practicing these yoga postures, one can try massage therapy for hair loss problems. cause of hair loss leimoYou can take 3-5 minutes of gentle head message by using your fingertips, which will improve blood flow to the hair follicles and help hair growth.

Many hair experts advocate head massage with hot oil to increase hair growth. The best oils for this massage are castor oil, almond oil, coconut oil and olive oil. You can even use a combination of these oils. This gentle massage promotes blood circulation in the scalp and strengthens hair roots and follicles, which can promote hair growth. Regular oil massages can strengthen the hair and improve their overall texture and health.

Another yogic technique used to treat loss of hair is called Balayam. Balayam is a type of massage in which the nails of each finger are rubbed briskly for about four to five minutes per day. This can be done by placing one finger at a time, beginning with the index finger of one hand, on the thumb of the other and using the opposite index finger to rub or buff the top of the fingernail for about a half a minute. This process is repeated for each finger on both hands.

Meditation is another way to overcome hair loss problems as it can control stress. Sit in proper pose and observe your breathing.

Regular yoga practice can help alleviate stress and energize the body. Because stress is one of the contributing factors to hair loss, yoga provides a viable option for reducing or even reversing its effects. In fact, the good thing about practicing yoga poses to prevent further loss of hair is that you are not only rejuvenating hair growth but also reaping the benefits that yoga will have on your entire body.
