Lookout for this.

Hair goes grey when hydrogen peroxide builds up in the hair follicle, hampering the normal production of melanin, which gives colour to our skin, eyes and hair, the research says.

The PC-KUS removes the hydrogen peroxide build up from the follicle, reversing the greying process, researchers found.

Well, at 59 years old, my hair is still barely grey but I wouldn't want a "cure" since today, it seems that many of the "cures" they come up with are worse than the condition they are trying to cure. Another issue would be that the skin lightens as you age and if the hair stays the same, the look will not be right. And, then you would still have the issue of the change of texture in the hair. So, I'll stick with what nature provides.

Well I think this may vary by race.

Also many people who look young have grey hair. So the mismatch can happen the other way. So these young looking people with grey hair could use this product.

"Cure" suggests relief from pain, disease or an unhealthy condition.

Gray hair is none of the above and does not need to be "cured."

Two years ago at age 53 I stopped coloring my hair. I'm completely silvery-gray now and love love love it. I am not kidding when I say I get more compliments on my hair than I did during the 30-plus years I spent coloring the damn stuff.

Women look so much better when they color their grey hair.

I think many do, but not all. I currently color and highlight my hair but envy those women who look gorgeous with their beautiful silver hair. If it's an ugly, yellowish gray then I say go back to the bottle, but if you grow it out, and it looks good, don't waste your money at the salon. Spend it on something else you need or want.

I agree with you 100%. Mine is predominantly white with grey and a few strands of black and I have never dyed it. Thought you might be interested to read this - "What your hair tells you about your health" What your hair tells you about your health | Daily Mail Online I like in the UK and our press really goes to town on articles such are this. Hope you ladies enjoy it.

I love my silver hair, it looks like I have natural highlights. I started playing with hair color at the age of 16, and I'm more than happy to put that monthly task to rest. My hair is a lot softer and manageable without using all of those chemicals found in hair coloring. A lot of older women don't use a hair color that compliments their skin tone, and end up sporting a cheap looking dye job. Don't get me started on the male newscasters using temporary hair dye that looks so fake on high definition TV.

Oh and what's up with the dark roots, that scream "I've run out of ways to look different?" That fad can't die fast enough.
