    So... did your haircolor change?

    I noticed something pretty neat with my hair since I started eating primal - my hair color actually begun to change. It used to be a light/medium brown, but this summer it automatically sun-bleached itself to the point where people asked me if I had dyed half of it blond. Now, in the winter, my hair color once again changed- it's now... black! You can still see the brown if you look closer, but I hardly even count as a brunette anymore.

    Perhaps it helps that my hair is short so that I can actually see the changes but... I'm surprised, I really is. I can't think of what else than my transition to primal that could've caused it. Anyone else noticed it happening?

    I think this is natural for those of Caucasian descent, I'm Asian so my hair is dark brown and will remain that way until I start going gray. I've seen a lot of people go blonder in summer then darker in winter as they no longer spend all day on the beach.

    It's pretty normal, in my experience. In the summer, my hair does get lighter (when I was on swim teams as a kid, it was damn near white in the summer) and then darkens significantly in the winter, every year to a different degree. Have you started spending more time in the sun?

    My beard is a lot darker since going Primal. It actually matches the hair on my head, rather than being a lighter brown color.

    Nope, every year just gets a bit grayer.
    I find your lack of bacon disturbing.

    When it's actually all my natural color (hit or miss, depending on my mood), it varies between dark blonde with white/ clear (no, I'm not exaggerating)/ pale blonde highlights in the summer and dishwater blonde in the winter.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    My very black hair becomes light brown if I stay in the sun too long, in general.

    Ever since going Primal, I also stopped using conventional shampoo/conditioner and have been conditioning with lime juice. It has made my hair become soooooo soft

    Condition with lime juice?? That sounds really interesting. What do you wash with now? I've considered doing this and not having to buy shampoo and conditioner anymore, but I worry about washing my hair because after a couple days it has a tendancy to get really oily.

    I buy a palm oil-based shampoo from Whole Foods. Not the cleanest, but my hair also gets pretty greasy and dandruff-y if I don't clean it well, and I found borax to worsen my dandruff problem a lot more than the shampoo. If I let the lime juice sit in my head for a while, it starts to burn/itch, which I heard is a good thing. But then again, I don't have the patience to condition, wait 10 minutes for it to take the full effect, so I just get by for my hair to be shiny

    If you google no poo you'll find lots of info. on transitioning to no shampoo. Many people say their hair is not greasy when no pooing even if it was when using shampoo. Mine was never greasy before but 18 months no poo, my hair is clean and shiny. I use conditioner ans water as a wash.
