One such yoga posture known as the Headstand pose can be highly instrumental in contributing to relieving tension. Other useful Inverted posture include the downward facing dog posture, the standing and forward bending poses, the camel posture, the shoulder stand, the chest to knee pose and the vajrasana. These specific yoga poses are known to relieve mental stress and tension in the neck while helping to keep the hair healthy and beautiful.

Neck exercises are also useful in curbing hair fall. Turn the head to right five times, next turn the head towards the left five times. Slowly lift up high the head three times. Turn it slowly towards the direction of the chest three times. Lastly gently roll your head in a circular motion three times in each direction.

Other than performing these yogasanas, massage therapy is also highly recommended to combat the problem of hair loss.
