A proceding hair line? How to regrow hair with nutrition

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created December 07, 2011 at 4:04 PM

My hair has been receding over the years and thinning. I've been looking into nutrition and supplements for something that might work. So far Silica (cheap in diatomaceous earth), biotin (viatmin H), saw palmetto, MSM, and Emu Oil have some promise. Does anybody have experience with this or have regrown their hair back? I'd also be curious on what foods have these nutrients.

http://thegoodhuman.com/2012/05/31/what-is-polysorbate-80/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16400901 Sounds like it might be a dangerous product to use. Does all thinning hair products have to effect fertility (which could be a good thing if its reversible)

I do weight lifting 2 to 3 times a week. Should I be do weight lifting 3 to 5 times a week to absorb more testosterone. The shampoo sounds nice will have to try that.

Exactly. I currently have some jet black baby hairs at one corner of my front hairline and I haven't seen true black hairs in decades. I think the difference I'm seeing is that individual hairs had either been silver, gray or faded brown for ten years or so and I still have a majority of silver and gray but I now have "original" color in newer hairs.

I though testosterone was the major factor for baldness? I've always heard jokes about "rubbing out" your hair line if you're rubbing something else out...

I've always had these wonky-ass little "baby hairs" on my hairline, and lately they've gone nuts. My hair got WAY thicker when I dropped vegetarianism, and my nails are pretty knarly. I didn't even think about how those little hairs could be new hairs- interesting.

Ray Peat is as paleo as one can get. He puts emphasis on eating the whole animal, and according to him a *high protein diet with eggs, shellfish, fruit, cheese and milk* is best. I consider that diet to be completely paleo, extremely nutritional and freaking tasty too. I follow Ray Peat now too but not for hair loss, I do it for digestion and stress issues. So far, I have improved my sleep enormously, my energy and mood, and my personality (got a bit less shy, seem to be a bit less afraid of saying whatever the hell I want).

Maybe NAC is similar to MSM, which is related to sulfure too. Maybe if you take both it will fill in the missing side of the peak.

Ok, I've done in the range of 1200-1800 NAC/day for 14 days and haven't notice that. So at least for me it didn't do anything. Some theories I have seen are that the hair growth was due to anti-inflammatory actions. So are you having any problems like that?

I like the work Danny Roddy does, but personally i don't understand the emphasis on combatting hair loss, since a optimal diet (Ray Peat Style for the win) covers everything. I follow it despite having no hair loss. You really should link to Ray Peat on a lots of questions here, not only for hair loss.

Why vegetarian, paleo, and low-carb diets can sabotage your efforts to stop your hair loss. Why "burning fat for fuel" is the last thing you want if you're losing your hair. Sounds anti paleo though.

This won't address male pattern baldness, but a couple clues on the nutritional/hair care side.

I am a postmenopausal woman and my hair is definitely getting thicker on this lifestyle. My nails are also much harder. I'm convinced it's because I'm eating ample protein and fat.

Yesterday, I was putting a hat on and as I moved it up and down near my hairline I saw a clear "row" of growing hair that wasn't there before. Last year, my hairline had no growing hair at all. I've also noticed the new hair is less silver and showing some of the original darkness.

I still have hair on the brush every morning, but it's obvious I'm keeping more of the strands longer based on the thickness.

Another point: Don't shampoo your hair too often; just rinse it as long as it isn't oily so you don't damage what you have.

The hereditary component of pattern baldness is decisive. High testosterone levels = another huge factor.

One respectable solution: shaved head. When a head is hairless, widow's peaks disappear.

I've recently seen reversal of male pattern baldness on one side of my widow's peak. Skin that had been completely hairless for years now has thick colored hairs, and the hairline is lower. However this has happened only on one side, in a small area.

I experiment constantly with supplements and food, so it's difficult to know why this occurred, but I think the cause was one or more of the following:

  1. I started taking large doses of n-acetyl cysteine (NAC) shortly before the regrowth occurred. (I was also taking glutathione but that wasn't new.)

  2. Eight months ago I suddenly lost a great deal of hair. It fell out in clumps. I think this was telogen effluvium caused by switching from a clinical ketogenic diet to a non-ketogenic diet. Within a few months, all the hair that was lost to telogen effluvium grew back. Maybe some "extra" grew back.

  3. I had used minoxidil for years, but had stopped using it about a year ago. When the telogen effluvium occurred I began using it again for a while.

  4. I took antibiotics (doxycycline, azithromycin, ampicillin) for a couple of months.

Of these four possible causes, I think NAC is the most likely.

I wonder if the regrowth was due to remedying a sulfur deficiency.

In order to try to promote more regrowth, I'm now eating large amounts of sulfur-containing vegetables and eggs and continuing to take NAC and glutathione as supplements.

Ok, I've done in the range of 1200-1800 NAC/day for 14 days and haven't notice that. So at least for me it didn't do anything. Some theories I have seen are that the hair growth was due to anti-inflammatory actions. So are you having any problems like that?

1200 mg per day for eight days; then increased to 2400 mg per day.

Maybe NAC is similar to MSM, which is related to sulfure too. Maybe if you take both it will fill in the missing side of the peak.

Hrm, ok, maybe I need to take it for a longer period to see an effect. Not all inflammation is visible. You can have low levels of inflammation from allergens, toxins, etc.

Try using some polysorbate-80, you'd use it instead of shampoo, and rub a few drops of it in your scalp in effected areas for about 3 minutes, then wash it out. It tends to pull out DHT.

Generally male pattern baldness occurs when your muscles aren't using up the testosterone, so maybe think about adding some more lean body mass.

It's usually sold with biotin.

I do weight lifting 2 to 3 times a week. Should I be do weight lifting 3 to 5 times a week to absorb more testosterone. The shampoo sounds nice will have to try that.

http://thegoodhuman.com/2012/05/31/what-is-polysorbate-80/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16400901 Sounds like it might be a dangerous product to use. Does all thinning hair products have to effect fertility (which could be a good thing if its reversible)

Zinc + Magnesium supplement.

A few hours before bed eat a generous amount of fruit, and then take a zinc + magnesium supplement.

The fruit has got the Vitamin C to insure the zinc is well absorbed. The zinc promotes hair growth. The magnesium does so much (over 300 bodily functions) but most importantly it increases blood flow around the body. Good blood flow is important for hair growth.

Always remember that calcium effects zinc absorption. Many foods combos of veggies with meat are not such a good idea. Since the calcium from the veggies will effect zinc absorption from the meat.

So find out which foods are high in calcium and avoiding eating them with foods that contain zinc.

I'm big believer that coffee helps with hair growth. Try using a shampoo infused with caffeine, and drink lots of coffee.

All the best.

Uhm, testosterone is good for hair.... Try exersizing daily (short sprints and walking) lifting light weights several times, eat more protein! avoid veggies and try to only buy organic fruit, hope this helps!

Why should I avoid veggies? They taste pretty good to me too.

I though testosterone was the major factor for baldness? I've always heard jokes about "rubbing out" your hair line if you're rubbing something else out...

the herb horsetail also contains silica (silicon).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equisetum_arvense

i have not tried it myself but i have seen it mentioned by others here on paleohacks before.

so other PH'ers may be able to comment on what it's used for, & did it have any effect (good or bad), & dosage etc?

update: i have just read that Horsetail contains nicotine, only trace amounts (less than 1 ppm). but it may be a concern. so if you are thinking of trying Horsetail, best to look in to this first.

Eggplant contains nicotine as well. I don't think it will be enough to addict you. Unless your addicted to cigarettes.
