5 yoga poses that make your hair grow faster and voluminous
If you think your hair growth has been stalled, don’t feel crushed. We have a list of yoga poses that are known to grow hair faster and accelerate their volume too! These simple yoga asanas will ensure speedy growth of your hair while improving their appearance, strength and health. Not only this, they also promise to reverse hair fall and nourish the hair follicles.
1. Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward facing pose):-
This beautiful and strong pose is weight-bearing
and will strengthen your arms and legs. It also opens the sides of your body
and hence increases the opening in the lungs. An increase in oxygen in the
entire system can be achieved by doing this asana. The blood flow into the
brain increases because of gravity. The flow of oxygenated blood to the brain
strengthens the hair follicles and helps to grow hair faster.
This can have a positive eﬀect on the scalp. Wherever blood flow is increased, cleansing and nourishing can occur in the hair. Scalp regeneration and healing will also take place. The pituitary gland in the brain, also called the master gland, regulates many physical functions such as metabolism, growth, and sexual maturity. The increased blood flow in the brain during Downward dog pose will benefit this master gland too. It can have a positive eﬀect on hormonal imbalances. This in turn can influence hair growth in a positive way.
2. Child’s Pose (Balasana):-
Balasana is a rejuvenating pose. It has a positive aﬀect on the ankles and hips, and it beautifully stretches the entire back. During the child's pose, we are asked to let go and sink deeply into the ground. While at it, we can let go of responsibilities and whatever else is blocking our path and relax our mind.
This immense relief from stress, calms and cools the mind. The nervous system gets into a state of regeneration, and this has a positive eﬀect on the adrenal glands and the reproductive glands. This in turn can benefit our hair health and give faster hair growth.
Kapalbhati is a cleansing technique with tremendous benefits. The rhythmic breathing and stomach movement cleanses the internal organs and leads to an increase in blood circulation. Regeneration and rejuvenation resulting from regular practice of Kapalbhati is unbeatable!
What one observes immediately after the practice, is a calm and focused mind. This pose has an immediate eﬀect on the nervous system, which brings it at ease and promotes regeneration in the entire body, mind and soul. Through its rejuvenating eﬀect, hormonal imbalances can be corrected as well, and hair growth can be positively stimulated.
4. Shoulder stand (Sarvangasana):-
This beautiful asana is known to have a tremendous calming eﬀect. It is usually practiced at the end of a yoga practice because it facilitates the nervous system to shift into the parasympathetic mood, which is deeply regenerative
This first leads to a decrease in blood circulation. But the minute you release the pose, there is a tremendous increase in blood flow into the thyroid gland which can have a very positive eﬀect on the thyroid and hence on the hair growth. Feet over head is the best detox. All the blood from the legs can flow into the abdomen and get purified. This detox again can have a positive eﬀect on your overall health and well-being, and hence also grow hair faster.
5. Headstand (Sirsasana):-
Like Sarvangasana, the inverted position of the legs has a tremendous detoxifying eﬀect. But other than in Sarvangasana, try Sirsasana. In this pose, the flow of blood is not obstructed by the bend in the neck, and hence there is a tremendous increase in blood flow to the brain. This has a positive eﬀect on the pituitary and pineal gland. It stimulates the lymphatic flow in a positive way, and it calms the nervous system. All of it put together oﬀers a tremendous benefit for your overall health and well-being.
