for hair growth balayam is a nail rubbing exercise and it is a union of two hindi words bal
and vyayam where bal means hairs and vyayam indicates exercise. In simple language ‘balayam’ means an exercise for hairs. To be more specific, balayam is an acupressure therapy in which a person rubs his/her fingernails of both hands against each other to stimulate the scalp’s activities. This stimulation if done correctly, frequently and for a longer period of time is known to boost natural hair growth and cure mpb (i.e. Male pattern baldness
or androgenic alopecia) observed in some men and women. Method: rub four fingernails (except thumb) of both hands (as hard as possible) against each other.
The surface of fingernails should rub hard against each other.
Since roots of hair follicles on the scalp are connected to fingernails, this pressure creation will help in pumping required nutrition to the scalp
if you rub the tip of fingernails of one hand against the surface of fingernails of another hand, then it accelerates hair growth on ears.
If you rub surfaces of only both thumbnails against each other, you can notice faster growth of moustache and beard. (so women should avoid it)
if you rub nail tips of one hand with the surface of other hand’s nails, hair in ears will grow.
So, it is important to rub without causing friction to nail ends and avoid thumbs.
Apart from this exercise, try to quit smoking
and have control over alcohol consumption.
Also add at least 80-100 gms of protein
(soy is preferable), 30 gms of iron and enough sulphur.
Drink plenty of pure water, which can help to remove toxins from your body.
If you are suffering from anaemia, increase your iron intake. Do this at least for 10 minutes (increase time limit if your hair fall is more) in the morning, before breakfast and 10 minutes in the evening, before dinner.
Along with this yoga, practice prithvi mudra for 40 minutes each day.
People having high blood pressure
should avoid balayam. It may aggravate the condition.
Letting your hair get enough sunlight every day is also important.
Balayam may not be effective in types of baldness like alopecia areata, alopecia totalis
, alopecia universalis
Within 3-6 months, you will see a noticeable change in your hairline.
After 12 months of regular practice with a proper diet
, your lost hair should be restored.
