Lay off for a week or more and see what happens. Pretty simple to figure this one out, or at least rule out the chocolate from being the cause.

If you're only using it for your hair and body, does it make a significant difference whether it's virgin or not?

Check the tropical traditions link. In short, the lesser the quality, the more it's processed and it's mostly just for removing the scent. If you're doing hair and body you may want to get a refined version if you don't want the smell. However i... (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?

Coconut milk can be used not only for hair but for hair growth as well, you need to apply it on the roots and massage the scalp, then you might need to use shampoo twice to wash it out. Here's more information about coconut milk for hair loss. (more)

Mine and my sons hair does the same. Darker blonde in the winter to super blonde in the summer. I have been told it really has something to do with helping with Vitamin D production and basic sun bleaching.

No Shampoo is WHY your hair is falling out. The oils on your scalp are suffocating your hair roots and causing them to die. Start washing your hair and it will stop falling out.

I've been looking around for an organic hair pomade/texturizer for my pixie cut. The best one I saw so far has wheat germ oil as an ingredient. Do you think applying gluten topically would give me the same problems as ingesting it?
