Research shows that coconut Oil might be better than water
A lot of people have been talking about Coconut Oil
, the organic version, actually treats their hair and that a lot of people have, not only grown their back, but also got it back in their original color!
We decided to test it since we have been getting bald with grey hair for the last 10-15 years now, and it is amazing that it DOES work! Hair has started growing back and both the gray hair and the new hair is slowly turnig black, which was my original hair color.
For best result you need to use the extra virgin oil. Don't buy the Wal-Mart stuff since it doesn't have all the good stuff in it.
There are different ways of taking it and using it and we use two ways, eat it (YUMMY!) and use it on your hair. Don't be afraid of the smell. It goes away after an hour or so.
Want to try it? We recommend IHerb.com and if you use our referral code, LEK705, when you check out you get $5 off of your first order. We have bought and use the Nutiva Coconut Oil which,even with shipping is half the price of what it costs in a health store!
The oil tastes great and it is not as "oily" in the taste as othe coconut oils I have tried.

Here's a great recipe so you can eat your coconut oil all day long:
- Buy Coconut Oil
- Buy chocolate almond bark for melting
- Buy coconut flakes in a health store
- Take 10 tea spoons of coconut oil and mix with the chocolate to melt
- Mix chocolate, coconut oil and coconut flakes
- Put the mix on aluminum foil in the fridge.
- Take the candy to work, hikes for an extra boost
Remember that it took a while for you to loose your hair and/or to get grey hair so it will take a while to get it back. Hair does not grow very fast so BE PATIENT! IT DOES WORK!
Here's a try to explain why it works.
The mystery of why human hair turns grey as we age has finally been solved by a team of European scientists – and wisdom has nothing to do with it.
Science Daily reports that greying hair is caused by a massive build-up of hydrogen peroxide – the chemical women have long used to dye their hair blonde – due to wear and tear of hair follicles.
The researchers discovered that the hydrogen peroxide build-up was caused from the reduction of an enzyme (catalase) that breaks apart hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen.
So, where do you get more catalase from? There are pills you buy but I do not think it is worth it. A better way is to buy food that are high in polyphenols. Coconut oil
is one of them and apple polyphenols is said to be best to get.
Can Iodine deficiency be a problem?
The hair is made up of a protein called keratin and melanin is the substance that gives hair its color. Eumelanin and pheomelanin are the two type of melanin responsible for hair color. Eumelanin is responsible for the black color of hair and when it is deficient in the body, its leads to gray hair. Generally, when the production of melanin stops or slows down, the hair begins to turn gray.
There are ways of reversing and reducing gray hair but it is better you prevent it than treat it. When hair follicles stop to produce oil to the scalp, it results in hair graying so preventing the hair follicles from doing that is the best way to stop gray hair. Vitamins and other nutrients required for hair growth can also prevent and reverse gray hair so taking them in the right proportion is advised. Vitamin B12 is an important vitamin that prevent premature gray hair. When you lack vitamin B12, the chances of your hair graying are very high. Foods that contain vitamin B12 include wheat, meat, soybeans, oat, dairy products, eggs and green leafs. Fruits and poultry foods too can help to prevent premature graying of hair.
You should know that the body generally needs iodine for proper body metabolism. When there is deficiency of the thyroid hormone, it can lead to gray hair because it will affect the hair follicles. Consuming foods that are rich in protein, iodine and some minerals such as copper and zinc can help to reduce the effect of gray hair and promote good and healthy hair growth. Using iodized salt, consuming fruits, poultry foods, green vegetables, meat legumes, seafood, mushrooms and whole grains are good for the hair. Iodine, protein, copper and zinc are nutrients required to be in your diet as they prevent premature gray hair.
REMEMBER: You should always also take Selenium if you supplement your Iodine!
