Gray hair reversal? For those who've had a decrease in gray hair...

Asked on August 06, 2016
Created May 26, 2012 at 6:33 PM

Did it begin in "patches"? Either I'm crazy or my hair is reverting to its natural state, but it is doing it in "clumps". I began eating oysters about 8 weeks ago, which is the only change to my diet that I believe might account for this change as a lack of Zinc and Copper may have caused nutritional graying.

Anyone care to comment on their experience???

I'd love to have beautiful silver hair, which I eventually will, but to have pure gray sideburns and nothing else gray is not pretty.

I've been Paleo for 14 months and I had a touch of grey in my temples for several years. I have noticed in the last 8 mos less silver flecks but I thought it was my imagination. My wife (who loves the grey) has now agreed I'm going brown again, just another gem to Paleo..

A good ayurvedic remedy for greying hair is Bhringraj ..

you can obtain it in oil form to rub on your scalp as well as in capsule form. Its positive effects are well noted.

in good health.

I eat a lot of seafood. Wild fish and shellfish. Grey hair has lessened.

I wish... I started going gray when I was a teen. Maybe going paleo in my late 40s arrested it but how would I know?

Beats going bald, though.

I don't eat oysters, never have, but I too have noticed less grays. I have googled often, and have found nothing to back up these results. I am happy to hear someone else has also noticed this so I know I'm not crazy.

I am 42 and began eating Paleo a year ago. About 6 months ago, I noticed that the gray hairs I was pulling out with tweezers all the time were not growing in anymore. My hair was also healthier than it ever had been.

Then, in October, I was under quite a bit of stress and my diet suffered. I was eating wheat almost everyday. I caught a cold, and because I didn't feel well, I didn't have the energy to cook or shop for my regular Paleo groceries. I kept buying prepared foods or going to the deli for a sandwich. Not only did I keep getting sicker, but guess what? Some gray hair started appearing again. My skin also broke out - something I hadn't seen in 10 months.

As soon as I felt well enough I stopped all the nonsense and got back to my Paleo way of eating. I made rest and exercise a priority. My hair is healthy and shiny again and no sign of any new gray!

I remember hearing that you can tell how healthy a dog is by its coat of fur. If that is true, perhaps people are the same way!

World's Healthiest Foods lists "Loss of hair or skin color" as an indication of copper insufficiency.

Three years ago I broke my back and two years ago my blonde hair fell out in handfuls. Stress, the good doctors said. But worry not. It all grew back, thicker, stronger, longer and a bootiful shade of silver. I love my silver. This was all pre-paleo.

I went Paleo about a year ago, but the last 3 months have seen my hair falling out - again. Really, what have I done to deserve this? But this time is different in that the re-growth is a dark brown!

Bollocks to this! I want my silver hair to stay. Damn you Paleo!
