Hair loss is a problem everyone is concerned about. Ageing, medication, stress, improper diet, over use of hair styling products, and genetics can be the reasons for hair loss. Yoga, as well as it benefits the body, helps in having attractive skin and healthy hair too. By doing these poses, you can increase the blood flow to the scalp which benefits hair health and growth. 

The three poses that help in hair growth are:

1. Uttanasana 

This pose is known as Standing Forward Bend pose. Stand upright with your feet placed close to each other, and inhale deeply. While exhaling, lift your hands and bend forward to touch the floor or your heels and remain so for a few breaths. It de-stresses you and removes tension, calming your mind, increases blood flow to the scalp and benefits hair growth.

2. Adho Mukha Svasana 

Known as the Downward Facing Dog pose, it is an ideal stress buster. Stand with your feet flat and keep your hands on either side of the body. Place your palms facing towards the thighs and bring the body downwards slowly and let your palms touch the ground. Tuck your stomach in and inhale deeply. It too stimulates blood circulation in head.

3. Sarvangasana 

In this Shoulder Stand pose, you need to lie down on your back, and lift the legs from the floor to make a ninety-degree angle. While breathing out, raise your waist simultaneously while pushing the legs backward beyond the head. This pose helps in fostering blood circulation to the head benefiting hair growth.

Doing these yoga poses daily not only helps in hair growth but also benefits your body by providing their distinctive and exclusive advantages.
