Saunas are hot enclosed spaces that are known for their amazing benefits in flushing out toxins, encouraging the flow of blood, and helping boost the immune system. However, saunas are also beneficial for hair growth.
How can saunas help your hair grow?
One key aspect of hair growth is blood flow. In a sauna, the heat increases blood flow to the skin and the hair follicles carrying with it oxygen, nutrients, and minerals.
Saunas are great, but there is a caveat, that being the heat. Moisture loss is very likely to occur when you are sitting in a hot room. It can lead to dehydration for both your body and your hair. Be sure to rehydrate by drinking plenty of water and restoring your electrolytes for your body and reapply moisture to your hair. Conditioning your hair or applying oils after a sauna session are both great ways to restore hydration to your hair and scalp. Additionally, you can apply a deep conditioner to your hair before you enter the sauna (particularly if you visit it regularly) to seal in moisture. Once you’ve gotten out of the sauna, rinse off the conditioner.
It is important to mention that while saunas help stimulate hair growth, it is not a cure-all for hair loss — the growth of healthy hair relies on more than just adequate blood flow. If your body lacks essential nutrients, then the available nutrients will be prioritized to the body systems that need it more (like your internal organs), sparing little for your hair. For that reason, a proper diet or nutritional supplements may be necessary to ensure that your body has what it needs to grow healthy hair. Another element of hair growth is scalp health. Scalp health can be tricky as there are many things that could occur. Scalp irritation, inflammation, or injuries can all impede hair growth, and these are things that optimal blood circulation would not be able to fix.
