How to Help Blood Circulate Through Hair Follicles

Do you want a thicker, healthier head of hair? Suffering from lifeless, dull hair? Do your hair follicles seem weak? If you answered YES to any of the above, you may be suffering from low hair follicle blood circulation. Your follicles are nurtured by the blood flowing from your scalp to your hair. This blood flow delivers the necessary nutrients your hair needs for optimal growth and quality. If you are looking for natural and non-invasive ways to boost your hair follicle’s health, you should try boosting the flow of blood to them. Here are just some ways you can achieve healthier hair follicles and a way to grow hair faster through blood flow stimulation.

Products That Can Help
There are a few really helpful products which focus on the health of your scalp and follicles. One of the only products we can recommend right now is Har Vokse since it’s one of the few 100% natural products that is safe to use and also has shown to really improve the condition of the follicles.

Herbal Supplements
Gingkgo Biloba has been used by the Chinese for centuries to boost blood flow to the head and brain region. Indeed, this traditional medicine’s blood flow boosting properties are so legendary, many college students take this supplement before exams. They think that taking gingkgo will boost their grades because they equate increased blood brain flow with increased cerebral operation. While its brain process boosting abilities are still open for debate, it may be able to help people with low blood flow levels to their follicles. Read the directions and don’t take more than the recommended dosage.

Scalp Cleansing
Your scalp’s tightness and dryness might be tightening the skin on your head and this might be pinching the flow of blood to your follicles. Scalp cleansing can reduce the skin tension and loosen your scalp enough to increase your follicles’ blood flow. There are many scalp cleansing treatments on the market. You can go with traditional concoctions like cedar vinegar or you can use more modern skin relaxers and scalp cleansers. What matters is the skin on your scalp feel smoother and more relaxed after the treatment.

Yoga
If you are the more adventurous type or you are already taking intermediate yoga classes, you might want to use yoga postures that invert the body. The most classic yoga form that involves boosting blood flow to your head is the inverted posture. Once inverted, your blood flows downward to your head and scalp. Again, make sure you are taking intermediate or more advanced yoga classes since not all yoga practitioners can practice headstands. Be very careful using this option because you might injure your neck.

Head placement
Less extreme than the yoga option above, head placement exercises simply mean lowering your head to a level below your body while lying in bed. This is fairly easy to do. Lie at the edge of your bed with your upper chest, neck, and head sticking outside the edge of the bed. Lower your hed neck and upper chest below your heart’s level. Stay at this level for some time then go back to the normal level, breathe, and repeat. This exercise makes a lot of blood flow to your brain and scalp.

  • Thanks for explaining ways to increase blood flow to the scalp. For me, rubbing fingernails against each other works fine. It also slow down the process of gray hair.

    I Googled can you feel your hair follicles growing and this is the closest article to my question, though it doesn’t answer my question. Does anyone know if you can feel your hair follicles growing? I’ve had massive hair loss due to lupus, and now since I’ve been taking medicine some hair have grown back. It is going on a year next month since I’ve been taking medicine, and suddenly I can feel a sensation in my scalp region. Not quite burning or itching, but something close to both! I remember when I had a head full, then I use to have the same feeling in my scalp area. I was wondering if this is a good sign of hair growth or perhaps one of the many symptom prior to my diagnoses that I am losing hair.

    I thought it was interesting that you suggest yoga as a way of helping your hair grow more. By allowing the blood to flow to your head, you allow the follicles to grow and become healthier. Though, blood flow is not the only way of growing hair. You would still need the hair growth hormone. That would be a very helpful addition to growing your hair.
