I have been raw vegan for about 2 years now eating low fat. I drink water in the mornings. I get sunshine. I exercise daily.
I have gotten rid of many of health problems, but one problem that persists is dandruff. Does anyone know what causes this? And does anyone know how it can be eliminated. I thought it was due to dryness in the body, but I pretty much stay well hydrated, drinking water and eating high-water fruits, lots of melons (cantaloupe).
I don't use any shampoos at the time. I just wash my hair with water and natural soap.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
I'm no expert on it, but you might try giving up the soap, however natural it might be, and just go with plain water, well scrubbed. If your hair gets a bit nasty, I've heard that people have good results with washing with fresh lemon juice.
You could also try some exfoliation up top, with a comb or best of all (if your hair is still as short as it looks in your avi) with a skin brush, like this:
just watch for the bristle composition, if vegan is important to you, as some bristles are made of boar's hair.
BTW, how's your proposed farm venture progressing down in Jamaica, was it?
Okay, I can try plain water and see if that works. The Lemon juice I never heard of before but I definitely try that some time. And maybe a good brushing is what I need. I always feel better after brushing my hair.
The Jamaica venture is going okay but it's a little delayed. My father, who is also in the venture, is already down there. He's in Kingston right now. We are waiting for the lawyer to finish the will of who gets what land, it's going to be divided amongst a few people. Then after that, we have to have the land surveyed by a surveyor to cut out the exact portions that will be assigned to each family member involved, so it's a few months away. I thought it would be earlier.
I'm trying to be down there by December/January latest, because I don't want to go through another winter here.
I'll keep you and everyone updated as soon as everything is in place.
EFAs are important, but I believe their importance is overstated. Fruits like avocadoes have enough EFAs which we needfor us to meet Recommended daily intake off fat. My hair grows back quick. It's not hair growth, I'm struggling with, but dandruff.
I couldn't go with seeds, because nuts and seeds don't go well with me. If I had to, I would supplement, though.
Always best to reap your EFA's from whole foods, unless emergency supplementation is necessary.
