What - hair color


(Eric - Carbs suck the health out of life.) #1

I’ve had male pattern baldness since I was in my twenties. I’m 65 now. I just noticed that my gray (grey?) hair around the edges of the bald spot is turning back to my original hair color. [spoiler]WTH[/spoiler]

Can you say autophagy?

Can keto reverse gray hair?

Seriously? I’m stunned! Not Quite sure why our hair turns anyway. Cool!!!

I’ve read about this or heard about it on a podcast or two, but honestly I did not think it was possible. This especially because I don’t do EF (one 42 hr) and just do IF 18/6 20/4 and OMAD occasionally. But I have been pretty strict with <20g.

I seem to be losing my Cruella De Vil streak as well & I only do OMAD a few days a week. I’m a bit bummed about it - I like looking scary :slightly_frowning_face:

All of my uncles on my father’s side were grey by the time they were 30.
Unfortunately I have inherited that gene, and at 31 years old literally have greying roots.
Might kick this 4 dayer to a 7 dayer and see if I wake up young again :joy::joy::joy:

Silver can be so stunning.

If I were able to get some A particular NSV From Keto it would be better looking upper arms. I’m still hoping autophagy will use up this extra skin.

I agree - I think it’s elegant :slightly_smiling_face:

Eric, that’s friggin’ far out…

Who knew the fountain of youth flowed saturated fat instead of water? Perhaps a second puberty is on the far horizon? :crazy_face:

Seriously congrats Eric, on another NSV. :wink:


Signs of autophagy?

I’m 62 and no such luck for me!!! I’m jealous


(Doug) #12

Heck yes, karen. Pretty much all silver or outright white for me now, and that’s fine - I’d just like a few more of the hairs…

If my beard stops being grey, I’m going to majorly pissed off, no doubt about it.


(Marius the butter craving dude) #14

Well for me since doing keto I started growing chest hair on a much more larger surface then before. I kind of like it.

Are you male or female? :rofl:

Here is a picture. The ring around the bald spot used to be gray. Notice further down it is gray.

Interesting. You hear of people going gray “overnight” from a stressful event, but modern medicine poo-poos this as apocryphal. If we take the “overnight” slightly less literally then it seems quite possible that a stress event, which would upset hormonal balance, could certainly accelerate graying. In that case, a diet that promotes hormonal balance could logically lead to pigment returning to new hair growth. I’ll have to inspect my roots more carefully.

I got my first gray at 17. Rather old in my family. But I maintained at about 5 grays for a long time. After 30 and more so 40 started getting a few more. Not so my sisters. They both have much more grey than I have. Especially my older sister (only 3 years older) who I hear tell is totally gray. Salon visits always precede my visits so I have no first hand evidence.

My dad had an employee that was knocked off the top of as petro storage tank during WWII. His hair grew out gray from then on. I think he was a teenager at the time.
