Hello Friends,

Hope you are all doing fine. I know most of them are following the hair exercise which i have posted in my article. For people who are not aware of it here you go

Recently i read in an article regarding this. Just thought of sharing with you people. Below is the article where they have mentioned about this hair exercise.

Rub Your Fingernails to Say Goodbye to Hair Problems

Balayam, is an alternative reflexology therapy for hair growth which involves rubbing identical fingernails together with some amount of force. Though there are a number of people who believe that this technique really works, it has its own share of critics, too. So, before coming to a conclusion, let’s take a look at some facts about Balayam and also try to debunk some myths as well.


How it works?

Rubbing finger nails for a minimum of 10-20 minutes daily, can make your hair grow again. You should rub all your fingernails except for your thumb, because rubbing thumbnails may cause growth of facial hair. The number of fingernails you rub does not really matter.

What Balayam claims?

Balayam claims that your bald spots will reduce and you can get your normal hairline back. It also claims to prevent hair greying and hair loss.

The science behind Balayam

Believers say that there are certain nerve-endings below your fingernails which are stimulated when you rub them together. It is claimed that when you rub your fingernails, you stimulate your brain to send a signal to adult stem cells to revive the dead or unproductive hair follicles. Rubbing fingernails also increases blood circulation to your scalp, which strengthens your hair follicles and in turn prevents hair fall or greying.
However, no scientific research has been conducted to substantiate these positive claims of Balayam.

Who should avoid Balayam?

People with high blood pressure should not perform Balayam as it may worsen their condition.
It is also believed that sometimes Balayam may lead to drowsiness, so it is not advisable to perform it during work hours or before driving a vehicle.
Pregnant women too are advised not to perform it, as it may cause uterine contractions or high blood pressure.

When will the results be visible?

If you are looking to combat hair loss then it will take about 3-6 months, whereas for hair growth you will need to wait for about 6-9 months, depending upon how frequently you rub your fingernails.

What research says?

A research made by Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology claims that hair turns grey because of a chemical reaction within our body which causes the hair to bleach on its own. This process starts when an enzyme called catalase starts decreasing in our body. Lack of catalase means that hydrogen peroxide cannot be broken down and it starts accumulating in your hair, which in turn lead to grey hair.
Every person faces hair fall due to different reasons. Some of the factors which can cause hair loss include hereditary problems, hormonal imbalance especially in the case of women, prolonged illness, anaemia, stress, and lifestyle and dietary habits. Balayam cannot address all these problems together and hence its critics opine that it is ineffective.

Our verdict

While there are glowing reports about Balayam’s effectiveness, there are a significant number of people who don’t believe in it at all. One positive thing about Balayam is that it does not have any side effects. So, give it a shot without worrying about any side effects and see if it works for you or not.

  1. Hello Soumya,
    Balayam define to rub the nails with one finger from one hand with same finger nail from second. for example left hand point finger nail with point finger nail from right hand. But Ramdev tells to rub vertical motion which define four fingers get rubbed with other hand.What is the best method????

  2. I've read several articles that arginine is also good for our hair. It plays a big role in promoting a stronger hair strands but it is more popular to be used as an l-arganine supplement. Arginine is usually used by medical doctors in surgical heart bypass operation but formulated to be used in hair too.

  3. Hello Iam now 15 yrs and my hairline has decreased due to masturbation. Will this bring back my hairline? Hopefully...

  4. should we rub the tip of the nails?
