| All older-aged women have always dreamed of a beauty product that could give the hair back its youthful look. But what we yearn for is more than simply hair dyes to conceal sings of aging. In fact, we want grey hair never appear. Scientists from the University of Manchester and Luebeck University in Germany claim they can now offer a remedy for grey hair after they conducted a number of successful lab experiments. |
Our hair turns grey with age because of decreased activity of melanocytes – cells that produce a color pigment. Ralf Paus’ team created a hormonal drug (known as K(D)PT) which restores natural color of hair. In a lab, scientists managed to restore grey and even white hair to its original color (hair samples were taken from women aged between 46-65 years who undergo facelifts). Actually, it doesn’t matter if your hair is grey or white to give it original color back, according to scientists. If further tests prove to be successful, dermatologists think they could integrate this drug into shampoo formulas as a hair coloring agent.
Shampoo against Grey Hair
There are still many buts. First, it will take a lot of time to produce a finished product. Second, the scientists were able to restore the color of pre-treated strands to mimic aging. Although they are sure their magic drug will do the same job for “natural” hair, you can’t be absolutely certain that the original color will be restored. Perhaps, as with hair dyeing, we’ll have to apply “anti-grey hair shampoo” periodically.
Drug for Hair Color
The article on this discovery published in British Journal of Dermatology says this breakthrough drug can help not only men and women who don’t want to look old but also those who lost their hair because of post-inflammatory processes.
