View Full Version : Lossing hair during and after juice fast
06-24-2007, 05:55 AM
I was on a 3-day juice fast--a total of 80 hours, I notice that my hair has been falling off my head since the last day of fast, that was 2 days ago, my hair is still falling....Did I do something wrong? My juices consisted of carrot, beets, apple, celery, cucumber, orange and sunflower seed milk. thanks in advance for your input.

I don't think that you did anything wrong. There could be many reasons for it, diet being only one. You didn't mention your age and some fallout is age related. It could be caused by stress. I wouldn't worry about it unless it continues. It is natural to lose some hair every day. They say from 40 to 100 strands.
I see that you live in South Jersey. I used to live in Pennsville. Do you know where that is? Where are you if you don't mind my asking?

Hungrygirl...I'm about 10 months raw and after a couple of months my hair started to fall out, a lot!!!!...yes, I know some falls out naturally but I know how much all of a sudden was really coming out...I'd eaten pretty healthy before so it wasn't like I had a major detox reaction...
I got a lot of suggestions here but nothing changed until now....I think I'm seeing new baby hairs and I'm hoping it's not wishful thinking....I know the same thing happened to someone else on here...new hair eventually started coming in.
I don't have an answer for you other then it happened to me big time...I'll keep you posted on whether what I'm thinking are baby hairs coming in are really so. I hope I hope!!!

I know I know, but it COULD be detox. I've had that every time I go back to raw. All the bad hair comes out and new growth comes in.

MSM is great for hair. You might want to try supplementing with it to help your hair grow back faster.

That is a really crappy side-effect at times.
You can drink kombucha tea during a fast to help with that, I'd say.
But it shouldn't happen after only 3 days.
You may have some malnutrition going on so fasting isn't wise.
Since going vegan - raw and cooked 90% I have noticed I am shedding worse than a persian cat! My hair comes out in chunks. It feels a bit thinner but my husband says it is thicker :confused:
Anyway, I wish I knew of something to keep this from happening.
I am 33 and have been eating this way since January and it has been able the same, no better, no worse since then.

Valerie Winters mentioned in her June 12th blog that she starting to notice new hair growth. Maybe you are going to be getting some new growth soon.

Yes, I think living on a diet of green smoothies has caused both my nails and hair to grow faster. My nails seem stronger and my hair seems to be coming in thicker. In fact itís almost like itís two lengths. Three quarters of my hair is shoulder length and ľ of it is about 1-4 inches long. I think all the short hair is brand new growth. Iím very pleased. My hair had been getting progressively thinner and I expected to be wearing wigs in the not to distant future. Itís still going gray/white at the temples.
