Help With My Hair
Hi I came across this website, which I am very much interested, I do have several of questions to ask, which is, do I have the correct spelling for the products to buy which is "foti" ( ha-sha-wu) I'm not sure at all if I spelled this correct, and also a certain type of oil that has 24% GLA I cannot spell that one as well*:| straight face.
Also do you know any good moisturizer because my hair gets extremely dry and I have a lot of breakage when I comb my hair.
I usually do not have time to comb my hair so I would put braids which I think is not the best alternative, due to my busy schedule as a medical student. What is the best option? And last question what is the best alternative for those that are vegetarian?
My reason is I do eat fish when I o have the time to prepare it but I do not eat any other meat.
Need All the Help I Can Get
I'm a 29-year-old female and have been experiencing hair loss since I was about 18. It's the most devastating thing I've ever gone through.
It started to get worse in my early 20's, and has been steadily thinning since.
I've been reading up on your diet for the past
few weeks, and I guess I just need a little bit of a push to get started. I'm too afraid to wear my hair completely down anymore, and I wear clip-in extensions every day. I met the love of my life just over a year ago, and I'm honestly terrified that he'll leave me if I lose all of my hair.
Just under 2 years ago, I had some blood work done and everything came back normal. My thyroid is fine, and apart from this, I'm generally healthy.
I've tried all of it: Minoxidil 2% and 5%, Spironolactone, Acupuncture, special shampoos, Viviscal, Russian remedies (forced upon me by my mother), and lots of praying. I've stopped doing all of these things because they didn't work.
Do you believe that I can reverse my hair loss with this diet? At this point, I've truly stopped believing that anything can help me. My thoughts completely revolve around my hair and the depression is really setting in. Can you help me? I will do ANYTHING to be healthier and regrow what I've lost. It's all I want.
Now might be a great time to mention that I'm a sugar addict. Weight is not a problem, but I do store any fat I have in my midsection. Bread and sweets of any kind are favorite staples of mine.
I appreciate any advice you can give me. Thanks for giving me hope :).
Need Some Hope And Support
My name is Ruby and I am a 47 year old female and I am balding. (see picture) Although my hair has thinned drastically it is the balding on my left side that leaves me feeling concerned and hopeless. I have been dealing with this for several years but it has been progressing quite a bit in the last year or so.
I have decided to give your diet a try. I hope that it will work for me as well as it did for you.
I am (was) a major sugar addict. It's been almost a month that I have only had sweets on 3 occasions. I have pretty much eliminated all processed foods as well. Although I still crave both, I seem to be getting through it. The only thing is, I am eating quite a bit of fruit and I am constantly hungry. Is this still part of the sugar detox phase?
I have a few questions and although you may have provided this information in previous posts, I am still a bit confused.
I cannot seem to go without bread, especially since giving up sweets and crackers. I have been eating Brownberry 12 Grain bread. Is this acceptable? For example, I will have scrambled egg whites for breakfast with veggies and a slice of toast. I can't eat eggs without some sort of bread.
As far as yogurt goes, can you specify a brand? I keep reading labels and everything seems to have sugar in it.
I purchased my first tin of sardines today. I am hoping to try them in the next few days. I love anchovies and am hoping they will be similar. Are anchovies acceptable on this diet?
Sheree, thank you for creating this website. The information you provide is invaluable. I have been lurking on your site for a while now and have finally found the courage to post. Thank you for your guidance, support, and patience.
Please Help Me With Hair Loss
Hi Sheree. My name is Yaron. I write to you since I'm so very desperate. Four and a half years ago (at the age of 28)I felt a strange feeling like something is changing in my body. And I started to lose my hair and my body hair, and I started having scalp pain and very oily skin.
Then my endless quest began when I've been to many, many doctors and alternative therapists. I've done dozens of tests that all came back normal. The doctors said I was healthy, and that all of that was because I was anxious.
I knew that stress and anxiety had something to do with it, so I started taking antidepressants which made me have a good mood, yet I was still in pain and shedding hair all over.
I've been addicted to sweets my whole life. I can feel the immediate effect of sugar intake right on my scalp and forehead when it becomes very greasy and sore. I can keep going on and on, but I think that's enough.
By the way I started taking Borage oil twice a day.
I'm a 32-year-old male and I'm from Israel.
Hope you can help
P.S. your hair looks great!
I am confused
I have been doing the diet and got results as well so I was trying to get the diet right. I am confused. Whole wheat Indian bread is around 68 on GI. I have cut intake of it by two thirds of what I used to
But it is better than brown rice or same as both have around 68 GI. But why is bread made of same whole wheat not good. Or why is pasta better and only 48 GI when the core ingredient it the same?
I need more ideas for substituting bread.
Soy is good. .. but isn't soy mainly GMO product?
3. Barley ragi all seem to be high GI ? Then for vegetarians u need some good dish or bread for the sides as I have been on veggies throughout three months ? Do you have any idea ?
I need help in creating the diet according to Iindian meals . As we don't get things like quinoa here.
I Need Major Help
Hey Sheree it's Ash again. Because of stress and lack of time, I'm unable to cope with the diet, which has caused some hair loss. It's been a long time. I'm returning to your web site because all these weeks I was busy with my studies and examination ...but no matter what, I am still following the diet.
My current daily diet is as follows:
Breakfast: Bowl of oats,a glass of milk and a boiled egg and yes I wake up early and I have to be ready for the school so i gotta wake up early finish my diet and I eat it somewhere around 6:45am and the next time I eat is around 9 am which include fruits mostly pomegranate or bananas
lunch(12pm):my lunch includes brown rice, lentils, beans, cabbage and carrot. And after I leave the school, I reach home around 3pm and have some sort of lunch again. Lunch includes the stuff which I have mentioned above and a lot of water.
I also take a dietary supplement which is salmon omega-3
Snack: mainly includes almonds, cashews,walnut, pistachios, peanuts and a glass of green tea and yeah a salad too which includes lettuce, bell pepper and kidney beans.
Dinner: My dinner includes fish, brown rice, beans, chicken, lentils and eggs. I also take a capsule of B complex fortified with Vitamin C after every dinner.
I would be really obliged to you if you can help with this diet and what all food should I include in my diet so that I can stop my hair loss.
Hi, Sheree. I'm almost at three months on your diet and I know it's working. This week -- two days because I was really hungry and didn't have many options available -- I had a cup of breaded shrimp from a Wal-Mart deli and one night I had maybe five pieces of fried calamari.
Now that I think about it last week I had some coconut fried shrimp and some breaded calamari, too, on one night only. Otherwise I've kept up with the diet. Please tell me that I'm still okay and on the right track. I don't even take advantage of my cheat days. I'm just trying to adhere to the diet always.
I went to the Dermatologist who told me that I am going through Female Pattern Hair Loss. I'm only 27. I actually believe that my hair loss is tremendous for it to be FPHL. I thought it was telogen effluvium. The dermatologist told me that I can start Rogaine, but I have heard about the side effects.
My sugar levels fluctuated a lot. Sheree, do you believe that this diet will reverse my female pattern hair loss? Please help....
Question About Coaching
To Sheree, hey, I saw you were offering coaching to help with the diet and hair growth. I was considering this, since it is sometimes difficult to know what to eat, so i was just wondering if you could explain a little about how it works?
how much does it cost?

Diet Feedback needed
Hello, I have been following the hair loss diet since last 3 months. I was thrilled after the second week since my hair loss had reduced significantly. Unfortunately, after that it has changed. I would deeply appreciate to have some advices on hair loss diet since I'm still loosing my hair in the same pattern and my hair is thinning faster and shading both side of my forehead and crown part. Also my hair and my head skin is extremely oily, little white thing (like acne) always coming out of my head skin with hair falling out.
Here is a glance of my weekly diet:
- Mahi mahi, halibut & Talapia is not available in my city (need your kind advice on what to replace it with)
- I do not make Chicken, broccoli, cheese casserole instead I cook rice separately, chicken, broccoli and cheese are cooked separately.
- Also I am i need to replace Burrito Bowl (day 4 lunch) recipe with something else.
- My other meals are pretty ok I should say except that sometimes I do not follow the day to day order instead I eat a recipe from any other (e.g I replace dinner 4 with dinner 2 or 7 with 2 or like that)
Please comment on that.
- I drink lots of water and green tea (3/4 cups) and avoid sugar completely, using stevia instead. (sometimes i eat a clot of dark chocolate)
- I wash my hair every third days since using shampoo is not helping me much and I loose lots of hair when I am washing it. (please advice on what shampoo I should focus on. I use Ketoconazole now )
- Fo ti, Borage oil, Saw Palmetto, Biotin- 1 capsule after dinner or before sleeping
Please Please Please help me, any advice from anyone is unconditionally welcome.
