    "Half a Litre" sounds like a lot but it's really just 2 cups.

    I do make it myself, yes. I put a crockpot of bones & veggies on every Friday night and clean it up on Monday after work usually. I drink off of it during the weekend and just keep adding water as I use it and then jar it on Monday and freeze. It's a 30 minute time committment all told (setting it up and cleaning it up) but it's SO worth it to me.

    Because low-carbohydrate diets can cause rapid and significant weight loss, they may cause a type of hair loss called telogen effluvium, where hair growth cycles are temporarily interrupted. As MayoClinic.com explains, this form of hair loss results from physical stress, such as extreme weight loss or consuming a diet that provides inadequate nutrition. AgingSkinNet notes that eating too much vitamin A -- found in low-carbohydrate foods such as cod liver oil, butter, eggs and whole milk -- can also cause hair loss, and excessive intake of these foods or vitamin A supplements may be culprits in hair problems. reatment
    In most cases, hair loss related to low-carbohydrate diets will improve on its own after weight loss stops or slows down. AgingSkinNet explains that hair loss from dieting will eventually regrow to its previous state. In the case of telogen effluvium from extreme dieting or poor nutrition, stagnant hair follicles will start growing again one to two months after resuming your normal eating habits, according to MayoClinic.com. To prevent hair loss or lessen its impact while eating a low-carbohydrate diet, eat a spectrum of nutritious foods, lose weight gradually rather than rapidly, and consume adequate amounts of protein and iron.

    I'm a red head with thin, fine hair and I have noticed that while Whole30 and lack of inflammatory foods (grains, dairy for me) when not Whole30'ing makes a difference, I've noticed significant change in the quantity and texture and durability of my hair by drinking half a litre of bone broth every day.  I've been doing it for about 6-8 months now and the change is remarkable. I've even noticed that the receding part of my hairline has changed and is less receded than it has ever been.  Basically I have enough regrowth now that my hairline has changed!
     
    Not sure how that will help with alopecia, but it can't hurt!
