Over 40% of people on our poll reported that they are struggling with grey hair. Premature greying is becoming increasingly common, with added stress levels, environmental changes and products we consume. Nature has a few secrets to reverse premature greying and retain your hair’s original colour. These include amla, kalonji, hibiscus and castor oil, which are commonly used in Anahata’s haircare range. You don’t need to keep colouring your hair or get expensive treatments: simple practice these 5 rituals, have some patience and watch your hair improve.
One shot of freshly squeezed amla juice in the morning boosts melanin production in the hair follicles. This helps reverse grey hair by limiting oxidative stress on the hair. It can also be applied topically on the scalp when mixed with coconut oil. Amla is a superfood for hair because it has phenolic compounds and antioxidants, that boost hair health.
Yoga poses that increase the flow of fresh oxygenated blood to the scalp are excellent to slowly reverse grey hair. Yoga is an effective method to de-stress, which also helps since stress often triggers premature greying. Practice these 3 asanas daily (if possible) to see a remarkable change in your hair health.
Asana 1- Shirsasana
An optimal pose to centre the mind, improve blood circulation and balance the body, the headstand is an advance level asana. It reduces balding, reverses greying and improves hair health when practiced regularly. The inversion method is supposed to grow your hair by 2 inches per month- so why not try!
The plough pose is an easier way to supply fresh oxygen to the tips and roots of the hair. In this inverted pose, the body is shaped like a plough with the legs bent all the way behind the head, the toes touching the ground. It is extremely good for thyroid, which is often the cause of massive hairfall.
Asana 3- Sarvangasana
The shoulder stand is another way to invert the body and ensure the blood circulation in the scalp is activates. With the hands on the hips and legs at a 90 degree angle, this asana can be done on your bed as well. Remember to close your eyes and envision thick, dark, healthy hair while doing this pose.
