Fast forward into my 40's, I noticed that my ponytail holder was smaller when I put my hair up. I also noticed that when I wore my hair down, I would have a lot of stray hairs on my shirt at the end of the day. I really didn't think much about it at the time.
One day, when I was getting a hair cut, my stylist recommended a different shampoo...one for THINNING hair! What? I was offended! Yes, I did notice more hair loss but thin hair? I was devastated. As soon as I got home, I started researching thinning hair. The only thing I could find was that when a women gets older, her hair thins. It was just another bad thing that happens when you get older.
Not long after that I discovered the Paleo lifestyle. I wasn't really thinking about my thinning hair when I started eating real food. I was just focused on losing weight. Fast forward one year and I noticed something. My hair seemed thicker when I put it up in a ponytail. I did not have all the loose hairs on my shirt anymore. So, I started paying attention and did notice that my hair was thicker than before.
What caused my hair to stop falling out? I am not sure. It could be lots of things or maybe everything combined.
A real nutrient dense diet with lots of veggies, fats and grass-fed meats. I also drink homemade bone broth almost daily. I started taking Green Pastures fermented cod liver oil/butter oil blend too (I use cinnamon tingle gel.)
So, will this work for everyone? I don't know.
What I do know now is just because people say things get worse as you age doesn't mean you can't change the outcome.
Stayed tuned for my next blog where I talk about giving up chemical hair dyes in exchange for Henna!
