Can Marijuana Cause Hair Loss?

Posted by Rob Beale on Wed, Nov 04, 2009 @ 03:59 PM

I've been answering a lot of questions lately about smoking marijuana and the effects it can have on adrogenetic alopecia.  Simply put, can marijuana cause hair loss?  

Fortunetly not, but it can aggravate such medical conditions such as alopecia areata (bald spots on the scalp). 

Smoking marijuana habitually can cause a general loss of hair through its effects on the liver, but since 2002, Evolution Hair Centers have never treated a client with hair loss directly related or steming from smoking marijuana.

Health: 9 Must Read Books on Eating Well, Nutrition for your Hair

Posted by Rob Beale on Wed, Dec 10, 2008 @ 05:50 PM

In an Article to TreeHugger, Jeff Nield provides great insight on 9 books that are essential on how food effects our bodies. 

Nield relays a collection of interesting anecdotes, the best of which reads as follows:

"A friend of mine was so moved by The Omnivore's Dilemma that he quit his university teaching position and became an organic mixed vegetable farmer, along with his family."

 ...wow...I'm not sure I'd go that far but a few of these books have certainly had an impact on how eating the right balanced diet can decrease the amount of toxins in the body. 

Nutrition plays a huge role in hair growth, the healthier you are the more hair you will grow back due to the elimination of free radicals and toxins in the body.
