I have been gluten free since May 2009. Before the GF diet my scalp was completely smooth. Within a few months I noticed vellus hair growth across my entire scalp. Wearing a freedom wig hair piece requires a smooth scalp, my hair growth was and is interfering with the suction of my piece requiring me to shave my head. When the growth of the vellus hair first began I had to shave my head about once a week for adequate suction of my hairpiece. After 7 months of being Gluten Free I have began to see patches of pigment hairs. After 9 months I still continue to see more pigment patches appearing very slowly (aprox. 10% of pigment hairs on entire scalp but 100% visible vellus or "peach fuzz" can be seen if I let my hair grow for 1 week). I now have to shave my head every other day for my vacuum suction piece. Gluten is the only food I have eliminated from my diet. After reading information from the internet, it is to my understanding that if Gluten is the probable cause to my alopecia totalis it could take a year or more for hair growth. I am not discouraged but wondering what everyone else who is doing a gluten free diet is getting for results? I have had "peach fuzz" for around 4 month. Has anyone else experienced this?
