my hair has thinned significantly since going vegan. any advice? Im looking into DEVA hair-skin-nails. It used to be too thick for a claw clipey, now I can hold my hair up in a bun with one clipey. its also weaker. What can I do? Anyone else have this problem?

Sorry I dont post much, but I really am busy here at school. I really do appreciate everyone's comments though- you all rock so much!

Denton is pretty hard to remember. I've been here long enough though. I'm applying to Virginia Commonwealth for grad school. So might be in your state. Did the other post help any?

Before going vegan were you accustomed to eating a fair amount of seafood? I'm wondering if you may be deficient in Omega-3 fatty acids, particularly alpha-linolenic acid. Awhile back I posted a topic on how omega-3 rich flax seeds brought significant fullness and volume to my thinning hair. I underwent a very dramatic and welcome change within a six week period just by adding 2 tablespoons of freshly ground flax seeds to my morning cereal. Seriously try this--it is just about the cheapest remedy available for promoting thicker, faster growing hair.

Thanks MH, virginia sounds better all the time!

Tarz, yes Denton is forgettable,dull. I am okay with it but so many people complain about how it is so "boring" here. Basically that means not enough neon signs and clubs.

Don't let him fool you, last year this state tried to ban baggy pants. :roll:

I'm applying to VCU to finish up my undergrad. We'll see how that goes. I might just end up going somewhere I can commute.

Dandylioness, my friend went to Longwood, and I remember as dead as farmville was there was some little restaurant/shop by her apartment that had veg hot dogs. I was like yay for farmville.

dandylioness, check out this article written by vegan nutritionist Jack Norris on hair loss. You may find it helpful.

WOW SOUNDS AMAZING! Yes I was into this whole "fish only" thing a LONG TIME before going vegetarian, due to things I read about fish in health magazines. and I have eaten seafood my whole life. except for the past couple years!!!! (vegetarian 2 yrs, vegan 6 months)

I've got ground flaxseed in my food stash, Im going to eat some RIGHT NOW!!!! bought it when i went vegan, used it about 5 times, hahaha. im seriously gonna try this, thanks.

yeah that place closed. very sad. as soon as I went veg I was like "lets go there". then i realized it had closed. aaah. but theres a new little place called P.E. Bean which has an amazing vegetarian sandwitch that I get without cheese everytime I get a paycheck. great coffee, too (SOY LATTE'S!) plus we're getting a panera! probably wont be open till i graduate though....
