Eat crabs and oysters to prevent baldness and gray hair?

An apple a day won’t really keep the doctor away but could certain foods actually make your hair look and feel younger? Graying hair as well as hair loss can age even the youngest looking faces. According to Suki Duggan, owner of DonSuki Townhouse Salon in Manhattan, just eating foods with different nutrients can help to fight aging of the hair. Really? I eat a lot of crab, almonds and oysters but am starting to see gray hair.

“Often the reason people’s hair starts to gray hair does not have to do with genes but because of copper deficiency. Eating foods that are high in copper, like sunflower seeds, could be beneficial.” Don’t like sunflower seeds? Crabs, oysters, cashews and almonds are also high in copper. And here we thought oysters were only good for the libido.

” Biotin, which is generally found in soy products, as well as liver and eggs, can promote hair re-growth,” said Duggan. Tofu is great.

I don’t know how valid these claims are, my uncle eats lots of tofu, crab, and almonds but he’s as bald as they come. What do you think?

  1. I think it has no merit. If all of this worked, we wouldn’t have any bald men running around with bad hair plugs.

  2. I don’t think it is 100%. I eat crabs and oysters and I have a few strands of gray hair. I’m only 25! There are several other factors that causes premature graying which can’t be ignored.

  4. I’ve never heard that crabs and oysters helped, but have heard you should cut down on animal based foods.

    P.S. Diana – I started going gray around 25 too – and that was because I had a very stressful year. Stress is bad for your hair, sigh.
