Hairfall Reduction

Your hair is a crown that always adorns your head. And when you start losing this crown on a daily basis, it can be quite awful and can shake up your confidence. However, did you know that losing up to 100 strands of hair a day is considered to be completely normal? With some lifestyle changes, dietary improvement, and yoga techniques, you can control or slow down this reduction, if not stop it.

 

Cause of hair fall:

  • Genetics
  • Hormonal Imbalance
  • Stress
  • Iron or B12 deficiencies

 

Dietary tips:

A healthy diet can go a long way to improve the quality of your hair. Ensure that you have a balanced diet, with a lot of proteins. Include a lot of bottle gourd, banana, jaggery, and watermelon in your diet. We also have a video on YouTube by the name of Midnight Munchies which shows the best way to eat flax seeds or mixed seeds. All these healthy food items will also help to promote hair growth.

 

Yogic Techniques:

All the forward bending asanas help to improve the blood circulation to the head region, thereby maintaining scalp hygiene and improving the quality of your hair.

  1. Padahastasana
  2. Viparit Karni
  3. Trikonasana
  4. Bhastrika

Additional Tips:

  • Keep massaging your scalp to improve the blood circulation
  • Never comb your wet hair, simply use your fingers to detangle your hair.
  • Avoid excessive heat and let your hair air dry.
  • Have a good sleep cycle, with a minimum of 6-7 hours of sleep every night.
