Great news for those with grey hair!

I've always wanting to cover the greys in my head hair, so this is great for me...

Not much else to say really except it will be available soon.

Yes, there was a thread done on it back in 2009 but it looks like the testing has now finished and the treatment is soon in the shops...

The research team made their discovery after studying an international group of 2,411 patients.

FASEB Journal editor-in-chief Gerald Weissman said: "For generations, numerous remedies have been concocted to hide grey hair but now, for the first time, an actual treatment that gets to the root of the problem has been developed.

"While this is exciting news, what's even more exciting is that this also works for vitiligo.

"This condition, while technically cosmetic, can have serious socio-emotional effects on people.

"Developing an effective treatment for this condition has the potential to radically improve many people's lives."

I happy to hear this news. I went grey in my late twenties after a stressful series of events. They say stress doesn't cause grey hair but I think it does.

If I could get my original hair color back I am not sure I would. Being a pilot, a bit of grey makes my passengers more comfortable. When I get pulled over for speeding on my Duc and pull off the helmet the grey hair gets extra respect. I know this as I have not had a ticket (even a deserved one) since I went mostly grey and brown. Lots of warnings


I also think it would be strange to see a wrinkly old guy with perfect youthful hair

You are right, stress definately does cause greys.... I had a big episode a few years back and my facial hair turned grey virtually overnight!

Some women like the grey though but me, I prefer to have my facial hair original colour so I dont look too old!

Yeah but look at all the injections people have to help them stay young (except in most cases they just make them look stupid)

YAAAAAAAAY!!!!! I am so happy to hear this - I'm a "young" 50 year-old gal, and I dye my hair, but the main problem is that the hair is not just gray, the entire texture has changed. Instead of growing out smooth like my natural hair, it grows all course and kinky like giant pubic hairs. Doesn't take the dye totally and I HATE IT!!!!! It's as if I'm turning into a hideous old witch.

Thank God for modern technological miracles - I can't wait until it's on the market!

I got some gray in my beard (I have perma-stubble)...so would be nice to get those back to color. I wouldn't mind it much except it is all clumped in one area, so a wisp of gray but not salt/pepper (which looks kinda cool)

Still, good to continue the attack against aging effects. Now baldness and wrinkles and one can look 25 until they die of old age.

I'm 40 and I have a few greys in my goatee and a few in my hair.
Not bad yet but it's beginning to show.
I wouldn't mind my hair being all dark again.

I was reading up on this earlier today --- pretty trippy stuff!

You're absolutely right about that --- I love when the ladies compliment me - they call it a "distinguished" look.

I don't mind it at all, because it looks cool on me --- my facial hair on the other hand - it's a total salt & pepper look that I don't dig.

Can't have it both ways I s'pose. But oh well!

Thanks for posting!

Very interesting, I suppose this will have a major effect on the greys that are posting here and the soon to be greys.

I can see the cosmetic companies that sell hair colouring having a hissey fit over this discovery.

I am too old to worry about Vanity but this sounds good for the younger crowd that are greying before their 30/40's.

Its nice to read a positive thread for a change....

I really wanted to spell grey as gray but that is just me being an annal retentive grey/gray :-)

Ok I am totally ok with saying this, I cannot and will not be happy until they have something for silver hair!

Gray can be covered easily but silver cannot, I still cant find much about it. I often just find links to people that are looking to dye their hair silver, but nothing about what to do with silver hair, which I can tell you I am in my mid 30's and only a few woman in my family have it, and if we dye it it turn metallic!

Peace, NRE.

Pretty sure I heard last week that a treatment would soon be available for baldness!

Add me in on the premature greying department after stressful episodes. Happened twice for me with the first lump being as an early teen. Pretty premature. I'm blonde so it's not too bad and not planning on masking it. My hair is probably 25% white at this point.

you do not have to wait for it to debut on the market - make it at home by pounding up some onions and then add some water and let the lot steep for a while. You can also use a blender if you have one.Then you apply the juice to the scalp. Massage it into the scalp. Easy to do!

Are you sure this works?

I tried that 'Baking Soda' remedy on my skin..... didn't work!

Good for those who want to take advantage of this treatment.

For me, I'm proud of the silver strands I'm getting. 2-3 on the top of my head near the crown/middle part and 1-2 in my left eyebrow. I even tell my hair dresser and eyebrow sculptor to leave them be and to not pluck them. lol

It's always worth a try, no? Onions are rich in catalase - the chemical that neutralizes hydrogen peroxide. Best of all, it's home-made like the good ol' days when grandma used to display her heirloom pickles, fermented stuff, crepe paper flowers,,.

I was recently told that a dental crown - a root canal job done eons ago - has this deep abscess which caused it to fall out. He looked at me most solemnly and said that I needed surgery to drain the abscess but felt that this would still not work out in the long run as the infection mostly likely would recur. Off he sent me to see his friend, a dental specialist to get a second opinion. The second prognosis was even worse - he recommended removing the old crown, etc and proposed that I go for dental bridging job, which of course meant spending plenty of $$$ - striking even more fear. This specialist was adamant that there was no other possible solution as far as he could see.. the grim tone in his voice and posture, uncompromising and professional arrogance somehow triggered in me a strong urge to challenge the smug, rigid parochialism.

Then I remember this wise geezer who once told a group of us that there was always a way out, even a better way out of anything if we cared to look for one or inquired deeply into any problem. I did some homework and googled all the info I needed on an alternative way of removing deeply rooted infection - I discovered these: colloidal silver, virgin coconut oil, hydrogen peroxide, and a decoction of thyme, oregano, basil and added drops of two essential oils (tree tea & eucalyptus) - these are all potent bactericidal, fungicidal and virucidal ...

...this was how I started, holding the stuff in the gums for as long as 30 minutes, bathing the affected site. It seems to be working! The large swelling on the gum has receded albeit gradually and its size has now shrunk to become a tiny bump and the off-color gum is now becoming pinkish once again. Hopefully, all will be well if I continue the treatment ... persistence is the key, no?
