Human hair is remarkable, for it adds so much to one’s good looks and personality. Different people have different hair types – it can be coarse, medium or fine, curly, wavy, straight, thick, thin, or in-between. It all depends on the inherent structure and the nourishment provided to the hair. But are you aware of the possibility of yoga poses for healthy hair?

The most effective hair growth period in women is between 15 to 40 yrs when they produce maximum estrogen. Hair never stops growing; the rate at which it grows changes with biological and environmental changes.

Many factors affect the growth of hair. They include age, diet, general health, and changes in the weather. Cutting/shaving hair on any part of the body does not affect hair’s future growth or texture, but with proper hair care, it can.

Let’s talk about the yoga poses that promote healthy hair with the above factors mentioned. Practicing yoga for hair growth is getting popular with the world, knowing about the wonders it can do for hair growth.
