While the world is moving on from the Covid-19 outbreak, several people across the world are still finding it hard to recover from the aftermath of the pandemic. Though breathing complications were the severe symptom that most Covid patients reported, hair fall and hair loss still remain the most common cause of long-Covid that millions of people still struggle with.
Hair fall problems are also caused by an unhealthy lifestyle, poor eating habits and stress. While there are many medical treatments available to fix the hair fall issue, lifestyle changes have also been proved to have impressive effects on promoting hair growth.
Many experts suggest exercise to fix hair loss problems, and what could be better than Yoga, which is the ancient practice that advocates well-being by aligning physical, mental and emotional stability on a higher level.
Yoga isn’t just a traditional mediation and movement practice. It’s breathing and movement practice that connects body and mind. Apart from looking after your mental and physical health, Yoga is also said to have a positive impact on skin and hair care.

Sarvangasana (The shoulder stand pose)
This Yoga pose targets different muscle groups in the body and helps improve body posture and increase blood circulation in the head, which is highly beneficial for dry and thin hair. To practice this asana (pose), you need to make a 90-degree angle by lying on your back with your hands placed on your side. To complete the Yoga position, you can either use your hands to give your back a support or lean against the wall.
Sirsasana (The headstand pose)
This Yoga pose is known as the king of all asanas as it requires the person to balance the body on the head. This pose not only helps fix your body posture, concentration and balance, but also reduces stress hormones and improves digestion and blood circulation. Sirsasana is an inverted pose where you stand on the head with legs straight up and facing the sky.
Adho Mukha Svanasana (The downward facing pose)
This asana is usually practiced during Surya Namaskar and is known for promoting hair growth by stimulating the bloody flow in the scalp and boosting oxygen flow. Adho Much Svanasana stretches your back, opens up the chest and helps in building upper body strength.
