How to stop hair fall

Does regular exercise help in hair growth?

Exercise, as part of a well balanced lifestyle, can help improve overall health, boost blood circulation, help in detox, aid in stress management and better sleep - all of which may help in improving hair growth and reducing hair loss.

Regular and moderate exercise can have a positive impact on overall health, and this can indirectly contribute to the health and appearance of your hair. Exercise indirectly influences factors that play a role in hair health. Read on to know how exercise can be beneficial for your hair:

  1. Improved Blood Circulation: Exercise increases blood circulation throughout the body, including the scalp. Good blood flow to the hair follicles is important for delivering essential nutrients that support hair growth and maintenance.

  2. Stress Reduction: Regular physical activity is known to reduce stress and anxiety. High stress levels can contribute to hair problems like hair loss or thinning, so managing stress through exercise can indirectly benefit hair health.

  3. Hormonal Balance: Exercise can help regulate hormone levels in the body. Hormonal imbalances can impact hair growth and health, and regular exercise can help contribute to hormonal stability (along with doctor recommended regime).

  4. Improved Sleep: Regular physical activity can promote better sleep quality. Adequate sleep is essential for overall health, including hair health and growth. It is known that good restful sleep helps in our body's repair mechanism and the hair is no exception. 

  5. Boosted Immune System: Regular exercise can strengthen the immune system, which may indirectly contribute to a healthy scalp and hair follicles. After all, a healthier mind and body is better than one prone to falling ill soon. 

While exercise can have positive effects on hair health, it's important to note that excessive exercise or extreme physical stress (such as excessive dieting, extreme weight loss, or overtraining) can potentially have negative impacts on the body, including the hair. Also keep in mind that the impact of exercise on hair health is indirect. All exercise & lifestyle modifications should be done post consultation with a medical professional.
