This was quite a surprise to me as well, but after looking into the different yoga poses mentioned below, I definitely see why they would work for promoting hair growth.
They’re pretty much the inversion method, which is when you lay down and have your head upside down, so that all of the blood rushes to your skull. Doing this for a couple of minutes help your scalp get circulation, which in turn aids in hair growth.
Around the Web, I’ve seen countless people swearing by the inversion method. If you considered trying it or have tried it, but want a better way of getting the same results, then you’ll find these yoga poses to be ideal. They are easy to do and will also benefit you in other ways, such as improved flexibility, decreased anxiety and overall health. Yoga is one of my favorite exercises because of the many physical health benefits it provides.
If you’re witnessing hair loss, want to regrow hair after hair loss or just want faster growth overall, this is for you. So grab your yoga mat and let’s get started doing some yoga!
Downward dog pose
Also known as adho mukha svanasana (pictured above). This is a simple yoga pose that you may have heard of or seen. It’s when your body is in an upside V. You start off by putting your hands and knees on the ground, then standing up, while keeping your hands on the ground.
Your shoulders should be slightly vertical to your hands, and your hips should be slightly vertical to your knees. Then begin pushing up your hips, while remaining on your toes. Press your palms against the ground and try to straight your spine as much as you can.
Also known as matsyasana. This is another one that’s simple, but requires much more flexibility. So this isn’t exactly for a beginner. While lying on the floor with your legs together, place both hands on the back of your thighs, with your palms facing downward. Then lean back on your elbows, while pulling up your chest and dropping back your head, so that it rests on the ground. Make sure to breathe in deeply to help generate oxygen throughout your organs.
Also known as sasangasana. I find this one to be much easier to do. You simply sit on your knees on your yoga mat, then place your hips on the back of your heels. Then place the top of your head on the floor and your hands along your sides, reaching for your feet. Lift up your hips off your heels and hold this position for five breaths. Then unroll yourself to the original posture. Then repeat this again.
