I've been considering using hemp.  Has anybody tried that?  I got some on clearance at the health food store and the directions say if you want it blonder, use chamomile tea with the hemp.  But I don't want to do anything I'll regret. I have a lot of hair.

Wow!  This is really some item I have touched!!  

Ribbit: I have used hemp many years ago. Did not turn out the red I wanted... Sort of carrot orange was the result...   Anyway I use Guhl no. 63 and 62 in turns..
Better...

But.. I like grey hairs as well... on others, not on my head, for the time being.
Isa, SOD is it also good to take this after chemo???
A friend of mine will undergo chemo tomorrow. She is type O, Gatherer, and has had radiation for many times and now chemo.. She came to me last week for foodadvice.
she loves her Gatherer diet, and is soo into it.
I advised her with supps and now wonder if SOD could be of help when she has had the chemo?

My Taiwanese friend swears that black sesame seeds changes hair back from gray to black.  I am not sure whether it works, but I have only very little gray hair.

in case of cancer ...I'd go for salvestrol or resveratrol......salvestrol is even tougher.
I give it to Hardy right now, even during chemo they allowed me to treat him (allowed... !!!)....

I've heard say that mixing arnica oil with olive oil and putting on head(with a cap)at night..for 3 weeks..3 times a week...will grow more hair. Now there might have been one other ingredient in this mix and if i think of it i'll tell you. Maybe someone else knows. But I think the arnica oil is the most important ingredient. I'll go google it.

I tried an olive oil "soak" once.  Huge mistake.  I couldn't wash it out of my hair.

I buy black sesasme seeds and eat them.  I usually grind them with some seasalt and sprinkle them over my vegetables. I also buy black sesame seed tahini. I use this to make salad dressings. It is also nice just to eat a teaspoon full of it.

According to Chinese Medicine, He Shou Wu will restore the natural color of the hair.  I tend to believe in it's success, but only if used consistently.

I've had good luck with Eclipta Alba, which Dr D recommended, and I also use the Chinese herb Fo-Ti or also called He-Shou-Wu.  At 58 I have yet to use a hair dye, and just have a streak or two of grey and a few grey hairs around the temples.  Very, very fine and thin hair, though.  Haven't figured out how to thicken it yet.  (Doh!   Hashimoto's thyroidosis might have something to do with it )


OUCH!!   My dogma was just run over by my karma!

Yay, Linda!  Another silky, fine and thin hair person, here!  

I have a total of 4 gray hairs that I have been able to find, and those are my remnant from chemotherapy in 2002.  I wondered at the time if it was the beginning of the onslaught of graying.  I have been using Chinese herbs consistently since I finished with that treatment, and part of my regime includes He Shou Wu.  I have not seen the appearance of any more gray, and I'm a few years older than you!

On hair thickness, Biotin, as recommended by Dr. D, seems to help a little.

While I have only been following the BTD for only one week, the past 3 years I have been eating only real foods, no processed, no junk, and not eating in restaurants, my hairdresser and I both noticed that my hair is getting darker again.  At first I was even afraid to mention it.  I did not want people to think that I am stranger then I already am.  Most people think that the way my husband and I eat is strange and that we are very radical.

I have also been using oil of oregano drops since August of last year and that is when I noticed my hair changing.  I have also been grain free since last August.

What did you do with the oil of oregano...put on hair? Or drink? I didn't think you could take it internally.

I take 3-5 drops into some water and drink it daily.  I have even used it to brush my teeth.  I also on occasion, rub some on the soles of my feet.

My son suffers from a flaky scalp and in a search for natural remedies I came across Oregano oil. He started rubbing it into his scalp and there was some improvement.

He is only partially compliant on the BTD since he is away at college at that makes it pretty difficult, however since starting the BTD there has been even more improvement in the condition of his scalp.

I am getting more and more grey and white hairs everyday. I decided I can either dye it or grow old gracefully.I am not going to color it. I have seen so many people end up too dark or too blonde. I colored my hair when I was 15 and it turned green. Have not done it since. I will grow old gracefully. lol I have heard that vitamin B helps hair color????? I really believe it goes with DNA and genetics from our parents. (just my opinion)

Valerie,
Was just talking about this on another thread about hair.....I am sick and tired of coloring.
So I am growing mine out and letting some of the greys come in.  I think if we take good care of it, grey can look ok....graceful, wise, etc.....Mine when colored always turns reddish and I don't like that....

I also stopped coloring my hair a couple of months ago. Really tired of dumping all those chemicals on my hair. Also tired of freaking out the minute the gray roots started showing. Most of my gray is at the temples and forehead area. I started turning gray in my early thirties in nursing school. Had very bad nutritional habits at the time because of the sixteen hour days and was an hour from home. Ate a lot of fast food. Hoping a few years on the hunter diet will help that. Am just discovering what my real hair color is.
