Can A Sauna Give Effortlessly Beautiful And Lustrous Hair

Posted In: Health & Wellness

There are so many health benefits from using a sauna but there are also benefits for beauty. It can make skin glowing and provide benefits to improve your hair, even stimulating the growth to make it thicker. The type of sauna used makes a big difference. A dry, infrared sauna doesn’t affect blowouts and straightened hair compared to traditional saunas, which have more moisture in the air. Aside from immediate effects, regular sauna visits can improve hair and conditions related to hair loss.

The heat from the sauna boosts circulation.

Saunas can help eliminate toxins and boost the immune system. It increases circulation, which brings oxygen and nutrient-laden blood to the skin, including the scalp and hair follicles. The extra nutrition can promote hair growth. While this won’t revive dead follicles, it will help protect the hair that’s remaining, making it thicker and more luxurious than before starting sauna sessions.

An infrared sauna can open your pores and release toxins.

Debris builds up on the scalp, and toxins damage the follicles. The increased blood flow can help remove toxins and the heat helps open the pores to reduce debris that can block healthy hair growth and promote hair loss. The heat can open the hair cuticles to allow hair treatments and conditions to penetrate the hair shaft more deeply. All of that results in healthier hair.

Stress can lead to hair loss.

Hair loss can occur for many reasons and some don’t respond to sauna use. If stress is the cause of hair loss, using a sauna regularly can help reduce stress. That helps slow hair loss and increase new hair growth. Illness is another reason for hair loss. Using a sauna regularly can boost the immune system. By making you healthier, it makes all parts of your body healthier, including your hair.

  • Infrared saunas can dry hair due to the high heat. To avoid any drying effects, use a deep moisturizer before entering the sauna with a non-glycerin-based conditioner. Wash it out after the session.
  • People normally lose between 50 to 100 hairs daily. The body replaces lost hair with new hair growth. Hair thinning occurs when hair loss is faster due to medical, hormonal, or other conditions, then replaced at the same rate or slower.
  • Autoimmune disorders can cause hair loss. Stress can exacerbate the problem. Using a sauna regularly can help your body and prevent hair loss. It promotes relaxation and aids in relieving many autoimmune disorders.
  • Always check with your healthcare professional if hair loss is sudden or dramatic. It may be a sign of a more serious condition. If you have any health issues, check with your healthcare professional to make sure sauna use is right for you.
