Just when you thought it was OK to buy Kadima hair products and let them do all the work of beautifying your radiant locks, we have come up with some more hair beauty solutions for you!
If you are a really dedicated hair lover, and want to have your hair look at its absolute best, we have some news for you. Exercise. Yes, exercise helps with hair beauty.
Work that Hair!
When this news came bursting in on our lives, we have to admit that some of us at the Kadima Beauty kitchen table groaned. And of course, some of those gym-going types looked a bit smug and tossed their curls. But when we looked at the evidence, we all agreed that we could take on just a little bit of exercise to improve our hair and scalp health, and of course, exercise in moderation is never a bad thing – is it?
So here are some of the exercise ideas that we have adopted for our own health routines. (At least, we'll do it starting Monday LOL!)
Jogging, Walking Fast, And Generally Getting Sweaty
When we exercise, most of us do enough to break out in a sweat. Sweating is super healthy for us! It means that the body is responding to what we are doing by trying to cool us down. When we sweat, we sweat all over, and that includes the scalp. And that means we open up the pores, and maybe even clear out clogged hair follicles. And of course, it means our blood is circulating into those small capillaries near the surface of the skin (which is why we get flushed when we work out.) And of course, letting the scalp get flushed with blood under the surface, and sweat, is great for clearing out unwanted toxins and improving hair growth.
Now, that’s more like it! Lay back and get a great scalp massage – you can even do it yourself. It’s a fun thing to do with a friend. Wash your hair with one of Kadima’s adorable shampoos, and dig those fingers in!
Massage stimulates that all important blood flow, as well as feeling great. Your scalp will thank you, and your hair will grow faster, and maybe even thicker.
Go Upside Down
If you are a yoga buff you’ll know how to adopt a position which will let the blood rush to your head – and yes, blood rushing to the head means improved blood flow to the scalp. (Please be cautious with this one and get some expert help – especially if you have neck problems.)
Maybe you can still do a handstand up against the wall – remember those schoolyard days? You can of course just lie across your bed and allow your head to flop over the side. Now, that doesn’t sound so bad, does it?
Lift Up Your Legs
This one sounds a little odd, but doing leg lifts will increase the blood flow to your scalp, helping your hair get. Try one leg at a time at first, and then both together. Hmmm, and it’s good for the butt and the stomach muscles too – winning all around with this one!
Rub Your Nails
Yes, really! It’s an acupressure, energy, chakra thing. Massaging your nails stimulate the hormones that help with hair growth. It can also make your hair darker, beat dandruff, and even help with those pesky grays.
Well, we thought it sounded a bit far-fetched, but some of us have tried it, and swear it helps. And hey, you can do it while you watch TV, with not a bead of sweat in sight. Our kind of exercise.
Related to acupressure is acupuncture. If you are having real hair issues, it makes sense to explore every avenue. Acupuncture has been helpful in treating hair loss, improving hair growth rate and thickness. We’d absolutely give this ancient remedy a try if we were losing our hair. Not exactly exercise, but rather a cool alternative.
One, Two, Three, Breath
Breathing, now that’s something we can do, right? Kapalbhati Pranayama is a popular form of yoga which focuses on breathing. It improves that all important blood circulation and has lots of side benefits such as strengthened abdomen muscles. (And who doesn’t need that?) Not an obvious solution, but it definitely can improve your overall health and blood circulation.
If you want lovely, luscious hair, you know, of course, that you can use Kadima Organic Beauty products and get fabulous results. But did you know that breathing, sweating, standing on your head and even rubbing your nails can help with hair growth? No, neither did we, so you’d better get on over here to find out what we’ve been learning.
