Since your hair is dead I think it has less to do with diet and more with genetics... Channel your inner Prince William and rock it! Or you could shave your head.

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.

My husband took Propecia for only 3 months, however, the sexual side effects don't seem to be reversing... he's not entirely Paleo, but he is GF. Any thoughts on an optimum version of Paleo to restore male hormone balances?

Yes, I have an autoimmune disease called alopecia areata, as well as celiac. If so, autoimmune diseases can definitely be triggered by the SAD!

My daughter started losing hair slowly 2 months after getting the gardisal vaccination. Her initial blood tests came back clean, but I've a gut feel the vaccination and aluminum in it started her hair loss. Can Paleo help with this at all?

Can you tell me what you experienced with alopecia and whether any tests you did led you to the meat-eating pale solution? My daughter does no red meat, but pretty much eats everything else - relatively healthy. Thanks.

Hairloss is genetic, diet plays no role and the only way to slow it down is propecia.
