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)
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)
There have been a couple of recent questions on PH about paleo and hair loss and some of the people who answered said it was a common paleo problem. I didn't know this and was curious to whether it is actually true. So I wanted to ask, since... (more)
If you're only using it for your hair and body, does it make a significant difference whether it's virgin or not?
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?
Hello Paleo's I am a 23 year old male who has been about 80% paleo since 2010. In the past two years I noticed itchy dandruff followed by hair loss in the past year or so. I had a thick head of hair up until I was about 22. Its super depressing... (more)
I started a very similar paleo diet a few years ago and went completely cold turkey, and found myself after a month with a rather interesting bald spot at the hairdressers, (she was shit scared to show me, thinking I was going to blame her, and... (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)

I know that hair is a reflection of what you eat, and my hair has gotten thicker since I've started eating healthier, but it still turns from brown to this yucky brassy blond from exposure to the sun, even whine I cover it up and would use... (more)
UV lightens hair like that if you're out in it enough. Not "paleo" or anything, but try a purple (google Shimmer lights) or blue-violet shampoo (Aveda makes a good one) to remove the brassiness as needed.
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)
It's been a month no poo method but now i started to have severe hair fall. Whenever my hair is wet, after tie or while combing! Helppppp. But the result was good like ny hair is so clean and soft also shining except this hair fall problem..
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)
I have had a weird hair experience on my 5.5 month primal journey, and I am curious if this has happened to anyone else. When I first started, I was trying to do low-carb, aiming for about 50 carbs a day. After about two months, I would start to... (more)
Just speaking from personal experience and living this life (which, in my opinion, is just as important as a doctor's research), after losing 215lbs in a year with VLC paleo, my hair loss absolutely slowed down. It's become part of the entire,... (more)
I like using coconut oil on my lips and hair. What can I add to coconut oil so it doesn't melt in the summer, or in my car? I want to be able to carry it with me to work and for travel. I am guessing the additive needs to be something with a... (more)
About 3 months ago I started 'weaning' my scalp off commercial shampoo and conditioner as I found a paleo diet significantly increased the level oiliness around my roots. Prior to paleo, I've always had fairly dry hair. I began to wash my hair... (more)
I had a fasting blood panel done because I've been experiencing excess facial and body hair growth, acne along my jawline, and suspected some kind of hormonal derangement. I was midcycle when I had this test done and the doctor said everything was... (more)
Regardless of bloodwork your symptoms are enough to ask for an ultrasound of your ovaries for suspected PCOS or poly cystic ovary syndrome. Getting an ultrasound of your adrenal glands (to check for Cushing syndrome and adult adrenal hyperplasia)... (more)
I'm looking for an alternative to hair conditioners like Pantene. I have to condition my hair daily. It's very long and just can't be brushed otherwise. I was reading that coconut oil is an alternative, but will it stay in my hair and get oil on... (more)
I'm considering having laser hair removal treatment. It hasn't been around an extensive amount of time but so far people seem not to have issues with it (from what I know). That said, I feel skeptical about the longer-term effects but have no... (more)
I've not had any trouble and have had it done plenty of times all over my body. That said, it does totally depend on your skin type and hair type as far as how much and how often you'll need to have it done to see the best result. Lots of places... (more)
I decided a few months ago that I was no longer going to dye my hair anymore (since I've been a different color every month for 15+ years) and chopped it all of to get rid of the dyed (black) hair. Since my hair is so damaged, I'm wondering what... (more)
I know this is a really strange question but I use about a tablespoon of MCT oil each morning in my coffee (decaf iced with butter and stevia) and lately have been noticing that about an hour or two after drinking it my hair smells very strongly... (more)
