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'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..
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.
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!
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!
