Balayam is actually an alternative reflexology therapy for hair growth. The process involves rubbing of identical fingernails together. This should be done with certain amount of force. Widely endorsed by Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev, people started believing in this technique after it was shown one of the channels on television. There are a number of people who believe in this tactic. On the other hand, many have even criticized the technique saying that there is no scientific evidence of this process.
How Balayam Works?
Balayam is based on the theory that rubbing of fingernails for a minimum of 10-20 minutes every day can make hair grow longer and stronger. You must rub all of your finger nails except for your thumb. It is believe that rubbing thumb nails may lead to facial hair growth. It does not really matter how many fingernails.
It is believed that nerve-endings under fingernails get stimulated when nails are rubbed together. The process of rubbing also stimulates brain to send a signal to adult stem cells for reviving unproductive / dead hair follicles.
Rubbing of fingernails also increases blood circulation to scalp. This strengthens hair follicles and even prevents hair fall and premature greying of hair. Scientific research is yet to be conducted to validate these positive claims of Balayam.
Who should Avoid?
People with high blood pressure must avoid performing balayam. The exercise may worsen their condition. In some cases, balayam may even result in drowsiness. Hence, it is not advisable to perform it during work hours. Also avoid while driving. Pregnant women should also not perform balayam as it may lead to high blood pressure or uterine contractions.
