The look at different tribal people from dfferent climates and different traditional cultures and indegenous cultures, shows that some has more ans some has nearly no body hair. In modern times shaving is very common even under traditional... (more)
I know eating a paleo diet made my body hair much sparser and finer, and is helping my head hair to grow back in thicker after a couple years of chronic telogen effluvium...
I'm a 25-year-old female, paleo/primal for about a month. My hair (everywhere on my body, and I have a lot of it!) has always grown at a pretty rapid rate, perhaps abnormally fast. Since changing my eating habits, I've noticed that the growth... (more)
About a decade ago, I switched to a WAPF-method of eating due to multiple food allergies. As the years went by, I noticed some of my allergies getting worse, even with the WAPF stuff. I discovered Paleo, and it's helping me a lot just by simple... (more)
I've been trying to find some accurate info on saturated & monounsaturated fats (SFA & MUFA) & their affects on 5-alpha reductase. & i seem to be going round in circles. It seems like some SFAs lower (or inhibit) 5-alpha reductase... (more)
Why do women feel they have to/want to shave their legs/under their arms? I live in France (I am English) and in the summer I come across women with a full compliment of body hair and proud of it, yet I find it very difficult to muster up the... (more)
I was hoping for improvement in helping my very fine, thinning hair, skin which abrades easily and heals very slowly & with scarring and strengthening nails which chip and flake before they ever reach beyond the tips of my fingers. I'm eating... (more)
I know my hair has begun to grey since going Paleo (2 1/2 years now). Then again, I'm 45, so it's about time for it. I have no way of knowing if, perhaps, it's been slowed by my excellent Paleo diet (I only have a half a dozen strands of silver... (more)
Since eating paleo, and especially since switching to a very high-fat version of paleo, I have found that my hair and skin get much more oily than they used to. I am starting to leave a greasy residue on everything I come into contact with. I... (more)
Odd - my skin and hair have got drier! So much I have stopped using soap or shampoo (except on the unmentionables!) And it has all improved lately - why not try abandoning soap and see what happens in 2 / 5 weeks?
I know most of you are going to say no-poo, and I have tried no-poo. It was nice in the summer because I didn't have to shower twice a day anymore, but it made my hair look dull. As a blonde, shiny hair is very important! I stopped doing no-poo... (more)
Hi Eugenia, you answered my questions regarding hair regrowth a coupld of months ago and I was wondering how you were doing in regrowing your hair? I hope thats not too personal a question to ask. wish you luck, Benjamin
I'm a 22 year old male, been mostly paleo since the end of January. Just the past few week or two, I've noticed more hair on my pillow and coming off my head in the shower. It's not balding in a single patch on my head, and but there is definitely... (more)
I have always been a very un-hairy person - I can get away with a few waxes a year to keep my legs hair free. I also have never had hair on my arms. Really, my arms have always been hairless. But recently I've noticed that my leg hair has... (more)
I know that coconut oil is very useful for hair, but I've heard many times that coconut milk is also used, it is added in homemade shampoos, masks etc. Has someone tried to use it, did you see any results?
Unwanted hair on the face or body can mar the most exquisite of features and figures. The repeated regime of shaving, tweezing or waxing to remove unwanted hair is not just costly but also time consuming and uncomfortable. That is why people opt... (more)
So I've been vegetarian for 2 years before I made the switch to paleo. One of the main reasons I decided to take a stab at meat again was because I noticed that my hair was noticeably thinner on a vege diet. So for one month I literally ate meat... (more)
My guess is that your hormones are normalizing again, but I have no evidence for this, and I hope someone comes along with a better answer. I wish you the best of luck!
I have been using Bicarb Soda (BS) and Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) for about 5 months now. I wash my hair using this method every third to fourth day but by the forth day it gets incredibly itchy and oily at the same time. I've tried putting tea... (more)

Ok I understand this issue has been discussed many times but I haven't found a solution to treating my itchy scalp as of yet. I have been on the "no-poo" regime for the past couple of months, my process is I rub 1 tablespoon of baking soda in my... (more)

I have been dealing with what I thought were hormonal problems - acne, hairloss, fatigue, PMS and weird periods. When it did not stop I got my thyroid checked and I came back Hypo with an elevated TSH (other levels weren't measured yet). I had... (more)
This is probably a gross question and if the mods delete it I'll understand, but I've (for years) noticed that I have hair growing between my boobs, and it's getting thicker and darker. Most of the time I wear T-shirts, but when I wear low-cut... (more)
I know there are a lot of hair/skin/nail supplements on the market, but I'm hoping to be able to fix this issue with foods. When I was younger, up until about age 22-23 (3ish years ago), I had very strong nails that grew fairly quickly. Now, they... (more)
i read having dandruff problems is more often than not just a dry scalp issue, and corporate marketing will have us to believe those small flakes that come out of your hair when you brush your hands through you hair is dandruff, when actually... (more)
Hi guys. I know there are multiple questions and answers on here about this, but I want to ask my question specifically. It is similar, but here goes. I have been eating paleo or very close to it for 6-8 months now. I have lost 35 pounds since Jan... (more)
