HOW RUBBING NAILS WORKS ON LOST HAIR:
Most of them are confused and excited to know more on how rubbing nails helps in hair growth. As per one of our reader's request i thought i will give more details and explanation on this exercise. Here we go.....
Nerves below the nail bed are connected to the scalp and regular nail rubbing stimulates blood flow and oxygen to the scalp. Frequent rubbing continuously stimulate the scalp thus rejuvenating hair follicles and enhancing hair growth by controlling DHT (Dihydrotestostrone) resulting denser, thicker and stronger hairs. Balayam even stops graying of hairs. It is also known to soothe head aches and heal neurological disorders of brain.
To most people Balayam (Ancient Nail Rubbing Exercise) seems like a joke at first but my experience says it's the most effective yoga for hairs. It is the best natural remedy to control hair fall and regain lost hairs. Balayam can be practiced by anybody irrespective of their age and gender. In many cases, it works slowly but gently, gives expected results only after a long regular practice of at least 6-7 months. To get expected results do nail rubbing exercise daily for an hour or in four sessions of 15 minutes each. People with high blood pressure should not practice balayam since it may aggravate their blood pressure.
Factors responsible for hair problems are:

Adult stem cells theory:
Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells, found throughout the body after embryonic development.
They can make identical copies of themselves for long periods of time and multiply by cell division to replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissues for self-renewal and self-healing.
The adult stem cell has unique ability to heal itself. Whenever a tissue is damaged, adult stem cell are activated to produce new cells that will regenerate the damaged tissues and revitalize the organ.
The adult stem cells are mostly found in brain, spinal cord, blood vessel, bone marrow, peripheral blood, dental pulp, skeletal muscles, skin, digestive system, retina, pancreases and cornea.
The stem cells that are located in the bulge of a hair follicle actually cause hair growth.
Rubbing fingernails stimulates the brain to send the chemical signal to the adult stem cells located near the damaged/unproductive hair follicles.
The adult stem cells migrate to the base of dead/damaged hair follicle and due to their ability of self-renewing they make new hair follicles and revitalize the damaged follicles.
Thus by fingernails rubbing one can manipulate the adult stem cells into becoming new hair follicles, and can accelerate the hair growth and revitalize the damaged follicles to revere the hair loss or baldness.
In reflexology it is believed that stimulation of certain parts of body will directly affect other parts of body.
The nerve endings just under your fingernails are directly connected to your hair follicles or scalp.
By rubbing your fingernails together, the blood circulation in your scalp is activated.
Thus rubbing procedure increases the blood flow to the scalp and helps in strengthening the hair follicles, which in turn reduces hair fall and premature greying.
Don't rub your thumbnails because it will accelerate the growth of beard, moustache or facial hairs and soon hairs will start peeping from the ears also.
Avoid it during Pregnancy; rubbing nails can cause uterine contractions and can elevate blood pressure.
Avoid in it in some surgical conditions such as acute appendicitis and angiography etc.
Don't do it on problematic skin/nails or if there are infected sores or lesions on the hands, or on brittle/diseased nails.
People with the history of hypertension should avoid vigorous rubbing of finger nails as it may elevate their blood pressure.
Avoid long, excessive and vigorous rubbing as it may damage nails permanently.
Before rubbing fingernails, you may apply small quantity of castor oil/almond oil/olive oil/petroleum jelly on nails, for beautiful and strong nails, the extra lubrication will decrease the excessive friction produced during rubbing procedure, this will make the nails stronger, lustrous and moisturized.
Only rub the fingernails gently for 5-10 minutes, twice a day for better results.
