I have PCOS and female alopecia. Has paleo helped anyone regrow their hair? Any tips/advice would be very appreciated. Thank you.

Today I tracked my carbs at 125 and protein at 88 grams. Is this considered low carb/ high protein? Does anyone know what the numbers should be ?

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)

I have notice hair loss I the summer when I tend to eat lower fats. I know during times of stress too my hair falls out and I need more fats. I usually reach for the avocados and coconut oil and it helps within a day or two.

I used to use P-80 years ago, just make sure it doesnt contain parabens like many do, or you may grow hair, but have no testosterone!
