hair falling out

17 posts in this topic

wjkk wjkf 

im 24, male, im not amritdhari but around 6 months ago i decided not to cut my hair. around the same time i decided to stop eating meat too. my hair are around shoulder length now but iv noticed that my hair fall out a lot! i dont know if this is because i have stopped cutting it or the change of diet, maybe i dont know how to take care of longer hair? i dont know but im getting kinda worried now. my hair is curly so they get tangled sometimes and i end up pulling it. i just run my hand through my hair and so much comes out! when i was my hair its even worse. also i use to get a haircut once a week and mostly on the sides and iv noticed that the hair on the sides is really weak and growing really slow. i use to have a gutti when i was small but my dad cut it off when i was around 6, wish he didn't do that now.

also since iv stopped eating meat all iv been eating is crisp, sweets and chocolates and other unhealthy stuff, i feel so drained and exhausted. i feel so tired all the time, i never use to feel like this before. can you guys help me out, like what else can i eat?  what does everyone else eat? something that will make me feel less tired.

thanks

up your leafy green sabjis and oranges , supplement with mineral complex including iron and vitamin B complex ... it will help sounds like iron deficiency . Also using organic virgin cold pressed coconut oil with some peppermint essential oil and rosemary essential oils added  on the scalp will nourish and encourage fresh growth

As penji above said, organic virgin coconut oil. Apply it after every wash.

As for food- you are what you eat. Sort it out singh. May want to look into taking vitamins/ supplements too? Everything in moderation.

Also google vegan and vegetarian recipes. On YouTube the vegan corner, domestic geek. There r so many vegan channels. Eat cereal with milk, rice, quinoa, tofu, salads if u cant cook. Also most fast food places have a vegetarian option. Start eating food not snacks

Chick peas, kidney beans, soya beans, all beans actually have protein in them. Cucumbers are especially good for hair as they have silica Iin them. learn to make home made humous- its not hard at all. 

Brown bread sandwitches with sabji filling. Mushrooms are good too. Try veg soups especially minestrone soup.

If you are vegetarian, you need to lwarn to cook too. There are numerous recipes online.Keep searching so that you get the best which suits your taste. 

Invest in herbs and spices to flavour your food.

Thank you @Not2Cool2Argue Paji and @sikhni777, @jkvlondon Penjis for the nutritional info and those websites.  Got to get out of the aloo syndrome.😤

And as @S4NGH Paji says, vitamins/supplements may be needed if there are any defiencies.  Get your blood tests done.

Very bad move. This type of diet is deadly. Lower the carbs and hunt for protein and good fat sources.

You are craving sweets because your protein intake is too low. Now that you have stopped eating meat you need to add more protein to your diet.  Yoghurt, almonds and daal are all good sources.

Thank you for this information. Which daal would have the most protein?

Thank you penji @jkvlondon.  Some interesting information about protein and videos which I'll have to watch later.  Has anybody got one of those smoothie makers, are they any good?

I was looking at one of the nutrithingymajingys or similar, but the vitamix is costly.  I like how it does atta, though, and masala n other things, but stretches my budget and seems big in size.

It makes sense for me because there is six of us in the house , I can batch make smoothies , If you want to just get it for smoothies go for the nutri ninja pro its about 35-40 pounds
