I've been a vegan for almost 2 years but have definitely been experiencing hair loss and scalp sensitivity issues. I THINK I am eating right but am starting to freak out with the amount of hair loss during a regular shampoo. I've been hearing that I need to supplement with B12 and Iron and L-lysine. Any suggestions? I'd love to meet with a Macrobiotic counselor - anyone know a good one in NYC?
Before you start supplementing I would try ironrich foods like rolled oats,beans,lentils,peas, spinach, tofu, pumpkinseeds and so on!! Believe me, it's worth trying!! My body has problems with metabolising iron in general, but everytime I do bloodtests, my ironlevels are totally healthy, even though they were always too low, when I ate animalproducts..
Just incorporate a little bit of those foods in your diet regularly..
Hope this helps until you find a macrobiotic counselor!
