Nail Rubbing For Hair Growth: The Basics of Balayam Yoga and Why We Are Skeptical

0You all are going to think I lost my mind, and if you do, that's OK, because I get that a lot, sometimes. Maybe you won't say I am crazy; maybe you will chastise me for suggesting just any old thing for some hair growth. Well, if you let me choose the route you take, I would suggest you just eat some popcorn and chalk this up to being at the very least interesting.

Nail rubbing is the act of rubbing your nails together in order to achieve thicker longer hair. The correct name for it is Balayam yoga, and it is resides in Indian culture. Yes I know it sounds off, but I was just as curious and side eye prone as you are, so I did a little digging.

We might believe we know everything about the human body based on science and technology and as such, there has to be a logical explanation for this practice.

What I found is that people believe the nerve ending in our finger tips are connected to our scalp. Hair growth is caused from scalp stimulation, so most of us like to massage our scalp, do the inversion method and well, some people rub their nails together.
