Fitness Equals Fluff

28firstperson-master768

Your genetic makeup is usually the main factor in hair growth, but exercising can also promote and maximize healthy hair growth. While exercise is a great way to maintain a healthy and properly functioning body, the improved blood circulation allows for smoother transportation of nutrients and oxygen to your hair follicles, which is essential for growth. Where there’s adequate blood flow, there is stimulation and growth!

Exercise is very beneficial to our entire bodies. Regular exercise strengthens our cardiovascular systems, reduces the risk of illnesses, and medical conditions that may affect hair growth. Having a healthy body is a good basis for growing healthy hair. Exercise can lead to an increase in hair growth and retention because exercise reduces stress. Stress is a major factor in stunted hair growth as well as in premature hair loss. Stress increases cortisone, which is the hormone that is responsible for hair thinning. However, exercise naturally lowers cortisone levels while increasing serotonin, the hormone that allows you to feel energized and happy.

So, all those sayings you hear about ‘health is wealth’ and ‘being healthy is being happy’ are true. If you would just try exercising at least 30 minutes a day and even eating healthier, you will not only feel and look great but your hair will flourish.

Be sure to get out and exercise for a healthy body, a healthy mind, and healthy curls!

  2. This is so cool! I had no idea how much of an impact exercising had on one’s hair. I only thought that exercise was beneficial to the body/targeted areas–I had no idea that my hair was benefiting from exercise!
