Adams, Rex  Miracle Medicine Foods  Parker Publishing - Try (fresh organic) garlic which contains zinc
One man reported "rubbing garlic onto his balding patches" resulting with reversal of male-pattern baldness. 
Animals when deprived of zinc go bald. 
Garlic can increase absorption of B vitamins.  B vitamins can cause hair to darken. 
Another reports that amino acids + biotin (B6) help to dissolve excess testosterone on the scalp, resulting in build up of his hair roots.  Another recommendation is the addition of kelp/iodine (seaweed) to the diet to darken hair.  Hair graying can be induced by a lack of copper: (Caution on excess copper intake.)
 
Biotin (B7 or vitamin H) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biotin Diet Sources: [2][3][27] (preferaably organic)
  • Chicken liver, cooked: 138 μg per 74g serving
  • Beef or pork liver, cooked: up to 35 μg per 3 ounce serving
  • (whole) Egg, cooked: up to 25 μg per large egg
  • Yeast, baker's, dried: up to 14 μg per 7 gram packet
  • Avocado: up to 6 μg per avocado
  • Peanuts, roasted, salted: can vary between 5 μg and 28 μg per 28g serving
  • Salmon, cooked: up to 5 μg per 3 ounce serving
  • Sunflower seeds, roasted, salted: 2.4 μg per 31g serving

(AVOID/minimize) Raw egg whites (such as egg nog which) contain a protein (avidin) that blocks the absorption of biotin, so people who regularly consume a large number of raw eggs may become biotin-deficient.[22] 

Biotin is synthesized by intestinal bacteria,..Biotin is an important component of enzymes involved in metabolizing fats and carbohydrates, influencing cell growth, and affecting amino acids involved in protein synthesis.[2][3] .
.
It may also be helpful in maintaining a steady
blood sugar level...

Deficiency symptoms include:[2]

  • Brittle and thin fingernails
  • Hair loss (alopecia)
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Dermatitis in the form of a scaly, red rash around the eyes, nose, mouth, and genital area.
  • Neurological symptoms in adults, such as depression, lethargy, hallucination, and numbness and tingling of the extremities[31]


The neurological and psychological symptoms can occur with only mild deficiencies.
Dermatitis, conjunctivitis, and hair loss will generally occur only when deficiency becomes more severe.
[31]

Individuals with hereditary disorders of biotin deficiency have evidence of impaired immune system function,
including increased susceptibility to bacterial and fungal infections.
[3]

Pregnant women tend to have a higher risk of biotin deficiency. Nearly half of pregnant women have abnormal increases of 3-hydroxyisovaleric acid, which reflects reduced status of biotin.

Pantothenic Acid (B5) http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/mic/vitamins/pantothenic-acid
Vitamin B complex containing B5 may help reverse skin wounds, grey hair, high cholesterol, headache, fatigue, insomnia, intestinal disturbances + numbness and tingling of hands and feet. 
B5 "is a precursor in the synthesis of coenzyme A. Coenzyme A is essential to many biochemical reactions that sustain life. Also, the phosphopantetheinyl moiety of coenzyme A is required for the biological activity of several proteins, including the acyl-carrier protein involved in fatty acid synthesis." 
"Of note, genetic mutations in the human gene PANKII, which codes for pantothenic acid kinase II, result in impaired synthesis of 4'-phosphopantetheine and coenzyme A (see Function). The disorder, called pantothenate kinase-associated neurodegeneration, is characterized by visual and intellectual impairments, dystonia, speech abnormalities, behavioral difficulties, and personality disorders (15)."
"Foods rich in pantothenic acid include animal organs (liver and kidney), fish, shellfish, milk products, eggs, avocados, legumes, mushrooms, and sweet potatoes."
B5 & B2 is found in (unsulphured blackstrap)

Probiotics for Trichotillomania or Hair Pulling - Probiotics on the brain 10/12/2014 http://www.bostonglobe.com/magazine/2014/10/09/ probiotics-brain/DnnE6myX75vTfK6U3aolQP/story.html
"Dr. James Greenblatt, chief medical officer of Walden Behavioral Care in Waltham, is a proponent of probiotics...
'Thank you, you’ve never even met me and yet you’ve changed my life.' That was the sign-off in an e-mail from a man named Mike that arrived at the office of Dr. James Greenblatt, a psychiatrist and the chief medical officer of Walden Behavioral Care in Waltham, on July 24. Greenblatt is not unused to such effusive gratitude, but usually it comes from his patients. Mike, though, lives in Colorado, where he had read an article online about how Greenblatt had treated a young woman with severe obsessive-compulsive disorder using traditional psychotherapy & medication coupled, less traditionally, with probiotics, capsules filled with live 'good' bacteria. Within 6 months, her symptoms were gone.
Mike also had issues with anxiety, he’d started obsessively pulling his hair out 15 years earlier, but no one had been able to help him. Mike began treating himself by taking the strongest over-the-counter probiotics he could find.  After a couple months, he noticed the urge to pull had disappeared. 'IT WORKED.' Mike later wrote in a blog post.

The idea that microbes in the body can affect the brain has gone in and out of fashion.
In 1896, physicians writing in Scientific American concluded, in the language of the day, that “certain forms of insanity” could be caused by infectious agents 'similar to typhoid, diphtheria & others.' But after Freudian psychoanalysis became popular in the 1st half of the 20th century, the microbial theory of mental illness was largely forgotten & stayed that way for decades.
Today, however, scientists know that trillions of micro-organisms live in your digestive system, where they outnumber your human cells many times over and may make up as much as 3% of your body weight. The evidence that these bacteria affect a dense network of neurons in your gut, often called the '2nd brain', is vast & growing.
In recent years, a microbial imbalance in the gut (called 'dysbiosis') has been associated with chronic fatigue, obesity, certain types of cancer & other physical ailments.
It’s unclear exactly how or which bacteria cause or cure which disorders & in what complex ways, Greenblatt says, 'but the research is quite clear that the GI tract affects brain health.' In this case, he says, '1+1 does equal 2.'
Research on the microbiome got a kick-start with the emergence of new methods of DNA profiling that allowed doctors to quickly identify various species of bacteria. Now, studies exploring how gut flora may affect health are exploding onto the scene. Once considered 'alternative', maybe even a bit wacky, the field is becoming firmly entrenched in the medical establishment: In 2007, the National Institutes of Health earmarked $115 million for the 1st phase of the Human Microbiome Project, which brings together researchers from several institutions, including the Broad Institute in Cambridge, and aims to map the ecology of the gut. In late September, Harvard Medical School’s Division of Nutrition hosted a symposium in Boston called 'Gut Microbiota, Probiotics and Their Impact Throughout the Lifespan.'
It was so popular, there was a wait-list to get in.
All the interest marks a fundamental change in the way scientists and medical professionals view the connection between the brain and the gut. Not that long ago, many doctors believed that the brain was essentially walled off from the rest of the body and protected from infection. 'The dogma when I was in grad school was that nothing crosses the blood-brain barrier,' says Nancy Desmond, chief of the neuro-endocrinology and neuro-immunology program at the National Institute of Mental Health. 'But there are data now that punch holes in that dogma.' The challenge, she says, 'is to try to get at the mechanisms that underlie this apparent communication between microbiota in the gut & brain function that is relevant to mental health.'
Possible pathways include the vagus nerve, which runs throughout the body, the spinal cord, and numerous immune & endocrine mechanisms. For example, a chemical in urine called HPHPA signals a buildup of dopamine in the brain, which in turn 'strongly correlates with psychiatric symptoms,' according to Greenblatt, 'from anxiety to agitation.'
As in irritable bowel syndrome, the culprits here are species of the Clostridium bacteria. Fighting them with targeted antibiotics, along with high doses of probiotics, appears to help ease or eliminate symptoms.

Dr. Kyle Williams, director of the Pediatric Neuropsychiatry and Immunology Program at Massachusetts General Hospital, is also looking at how the microbiome influences the brain & behavior. But Williams cautions that the body’s ecosystem is incredibly complex and that the placebo effect, patients feeling better even if the treatment isn’t actually doing anything, can be very strong in psychiatry. 'There’s a lot of excitement about the microbiome now,' he says, 'but evidence is what helps us transform an exciting idea into therapies. It’s true the blood-brain barrier isn’t the impenetrable fortress we thought it was, but we’re learning more each day about how molecules traffic or are transported across it.'
Though much remains to be learned, many physicians and researchers believe there’s no harm in probiotics, as long as patients don’t forgo conventional medicines and treatments in their favor (where proven benefits are greater than negative side effects)  'Whenever someone says there’s an impossibility in medicine,' says Williams, 'they end up being corrected in a few years.'”

But as estrogen levels decrease during menopause & hormones like testosterone become more dominant, you can experience hair loss."  For postmenopausal women "I give a small dose of T3, the active form of thyroid, to help boost the metabolism of the hair follicles.  In some cases, I have a compounding pharmacist make up a penetrating cream with progesterone and T3 (the active form of thyroid hormone) & have that rubbed into the scalp nightly."  (Prescription required)

SID:
I mean, I have personally shared this several times, but it's so overwhelming to me. I was speaking at one of David's events & the woman in front of me, she had hair like mine, grey hair.  I'm watching her as she's worshiping God, and before my eyes, I could see the grey turning brown.  I understand that's not unusual.
DAVID:
Yeah, we've seen that a lot in our meetings, even completely bald heads growing hair, creative miracles, tattoos coming off, people growing taller...that are unusually short for their age, and...the regular miracles: healings, paralytics (walking) & all that.
