Hair Tresses and Stress

Believe it or not, what affects your mind and body can affect your beautiful tresses. We all go through things that may cause stress. You know like those bills that keep coming around every month or those long hours working without a break. I can go on and on about things that life may bring to stress you out, but count it all joy that you are alive to experience those things. 

Yes, I know, Stress can have some detrimental side effects on your health & body. One side effect may be the possibility of massive hair loss. That's not good. No, that's the last thing we desire. We want to keep that beautiful head of hair unless we choose to shave it to achieve a certain style.

Of course, we naturally shed a certain amount of strands a day, but let's try to keep it to the normal amount of hair, ladies. You to gentlemen! You don't want to wake up one morning and see patches missing from your hair while getting ready for your day.

Let's try to keep stress-induced hair loss away by implementing a yoga routine; meanwhile, releasing negative energy and concentrating on the matter at hand, to help alleviate stress. The controlled breathing in yoga may help relieve some forms of anxiety that you may be experiencing.

No-it won't make your problems go away, but It will give you time to get yourself together so that you can function correctly to help solve your problems at hand. You will be so busy concentrating on yoga, that you won't have time to be stressed at the moment.

Blood Circulation

Did you know, Yoga helps improve the circulation of blood?  That blood helps transports nutrients and oxygen throughout the body, to provide healthier skin, organs, and brain. Sounds great, doesn't it. Of course, it does! 

Let me tell you why! 

Just as our skin needs those nutrients, our hair follicles also need a good supply of blood to maintain healthy hair as well. Hair usually grows between  1/4" and 1/2 " each month, when it's not in the resting phase.

Hair growth will go through the different stages and grow appropriately as long as adequate nutrients are provided. Those nutrients come from a proper diet, but also through proper blood circulation; so that, the blood, oxygen, and nutrients can reach the roots in the follicle. 

Try scalp massages and a little yoga to get that blood pumping and circulating to all parts of the body. 

Make sure to consume the proper nutrients in your food or supplements, because the nutrients will go through your blood circulation to the most needed organs before going to your hair. Therefore, if there are no nutrients left after feeding the heart & other major organs, the hair will go lacking. 

So keep that blood flowing, so that nutrients can reach your follicles to help feed it. Try doing yoga to help with the process of hair growth; meanwhile, helping the skin, organs, and brain also. 

Yoga gives this list of the most common poses in yoga for hair regrowth

• Adho Mukha Savasana (The Downward Dog Facing Pose) 
• Apanasana (The Knee to Chest Pose)

• Sarvangasana (The Shoulder Stand Pose)

• Ustrasana (The Camel Pose)

• Uttanasana (The Standing Forward Bend Pose) 

Low levels of Stress and Good Blood Circulation

Therefore, we know that low levels of stress & good blood circulation can help improve our hair health by relieving hair breakage & getting the proper blood flow (nutrition) to the hair follicles. 

So you may want to try a few yoga poses to improve your 
  • hair growth
  • stress level
  • circulation

  • & other health benefits. 

If you're looking for a class, try your local gym. Oh yea, if money is a problem, that's not an excuse because you can do yoga in the comfort of your own home. No more excuses now, huh. That's right - Make sure the poses are done correctly by studying the correct form and technique.
