I have just purchased some litmus paper from Ebay @ 99p !

I do intend to try out different solutions this way but would also be helpful if anyone already had a suitable cream or solution and possibly the name of it especially here in the UK ?

There's all kinds of ways you can experiment with this. For those who use hair loss products like Rogaine that would be the perfect vehicle. Just put about 3mls of the melitane into a full bottle of minoxidil for a 1 to 20 ratio then spray it on the entire head at night and leave it. Do that 2 or 3 times a week. Or there's other vehicles like the pseudocatalase.

Since I only intend to use it on beard hairs I'm putting some in pre-made everyday cream and applying it that way. Fortunately it doesn't cost that much so one bottle should last 6 months or more.  
 


Danro very interested in hearing how you get on with using it on your facial hair. What is the natural color of your beard before starting?

I have a natural gingery / blonde beard which goes really dark when I am using MT2 would love to be able to find an alternative to keep it dark inbetween cycles of MT2.

Are you planning on using it to darken your beard or tackle grey hairs in that area?

@BoB.org, the beard hairs that are still pigmented are dark as they've always been, although in the last few years they may have lightened up a bit. I'm primarily hoping to re-darken or slow the gray/white hairs that have come in on the lower sides and on the chin. The rest of my body hair remains normal. I will definitely keep everyone updated once I start using it.

Hello everybody .
I've been away for some time due to the birth of my first childSmile
For about two months I bought the powdr taht pseudocatalase (the user) sells on ebay, but only today i did the mixture with neribas cream. Somebody said here, that neribas cream was indicated carrier for pc-kus ... but it's completely impossible to use on the hair ... what a let down ... it is impracticable to do this twice a day. The neribas cream is so greasy that we can not even sweep the hair, glue it all .... With this I can only conclude that the only way to use pc- kus is in the form of shampoo ... but unfortunately the user pseudocatalase not sell shampoos for europe ... Risking to mix another pc-kus with experimental shampoo seems absurd.
Meanwhile , I bought Melitane  from sartios, yesterday and I will mix with Jonsons baby shampoo , since it has a ph of 5.5 .
It will be really good if LEF made a shampoo which encompassed pseudocatalase and Melitane ...
It is  so sad to be 31 years, and be the alchemist at home, in the hope  of getting rid of grey hair ...
I think younger people are more depressed with this. If I had 40 years and start greying, i dont care that much ... but with 30 and have 1/3 of white hair is depressing ...it hurts..

You're right about the younger people part. I literally feel like my youth is slipping away from me, and I'm just on the cusp of turning 28. I had hope the grey wouldn't spread that fast, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I'm sure my stress over the situation is speeding it up.

People are already starting to make comments and its only going to get worse. This is really killing my confidence and putting me in a really bad place. At least its nice to know there are others out there dealing with this.

prestige first of all enjoy the great moments with your baby. I've used a dermalin PH neutral shampoo for 9 weeks now ( no results yet) but it always passed the peroxide test.

For melitane, what would be best? using it with kirkland minoxidil or adding it to a shampoo, the first has a long exposure time.

3 Month Update:

Introduction:
I started by applying pseudocatalase (my own lotion) twice a day to select areas* of my head where I had "gray hairs" (the majority are actually a shiny white color with the rest being a speckled/grayish/clear color) grouped together. I did this for a few reasons. 1) Keep tight control of the results and 2) I was unsure what the mix would do to my already brown hair (per Pseudocatalase some participants saw an increase in blonde hair). 

*After 1.5 - 2 months I became more liberal once I was confident it wouldn't lighten my already dark brown hair.

About:
Age: Mid 20's

Amount of gray: Less than 1% (knock on wood).

Results:
Changes In Normally Colored Hair: No. I no longer worry about this, especially after seeing the famous "Santa Claus" results.

Reversal: If there has been any reversal I have not noticed it. There are few white hairs with a very small amount of pigment, but was it caused by pseudocatalase? I have no idea.

Prevention: Possibly. I have not noticed any new gray hair in the areas of application. HOWEVER, it has progressed so slowly over the last 3 years (again knock on wood) that 3 months is too small to confirm anything. 6-12 months will give me a much clearer picture *crosses fingers*.

Future & Why I'm Optmistic
I started in late December. It was a long cold brutal winter for most of the United States. 2-3 weeks ago was my first real encounter with sunshine during the entire period of use. In total I've had about three 30 -45 minute sessions worth the sun (take what the weather gives me). I'm hoping for better results as we advance in the seasonal cycles and I get a natural summer tan.

All in all I still feel good about the scientific foundation and the results posted by Pseudocatalase. I will continue to use the product for a while.

**I currently apply it once OR twice a day (I ALWAYS apply liberally at night before a shower, but have skipped a few mornings) depending on the day. On days when I get sunshine I apply it right before the exposure.

@Ladd: I have the exact same feeling after 9 weeks. Not having had much sun exposure. Don't know if that's the clue. I pulled lots of white hairs and none of them have dark roots.

In the mean time ( I hope I can get rid of it soon) I'm using hair dyes and part of me thinks: the inventor of hair dyes forgot one big thing: the fact that hair grows. Most of the time it's recommended to touch up your roots after 6-8 weeks. But how outrageous and sleezy do you look after that time? I must say: in less than a week I notice the roots and now it's been two weeks since I've dyed it and people see it.

Okay, let's stick to stuff like melitane and pseudocatalase, just wanted to say that "hair dyes" are often seen as a solution when you complain about hair color, but the root problem is even worse than a complete head in the same color.

I would also be interested in an answer to this, I just feel that a solution that can be left on the hair shaft permanently or for a few days at least is going to be better than one that is washed off after a few minutes ?
