Figured I'd share my experience: I've been using Melitane with DMI and water at a 10%/10%/80% ratio respectively.

I'm about 1 month in now using it most days once in the morning and once at night.  As of right now I can't see any difference in the gray hairs I've plucked.  

Honestly I was hoping to be able to see something, anything, at this point with my new hair growth since the experiment results from Lucas Meyer claimed some substantial changes within the pigmentation of hairs only after their 7 day trial and with only a .05% concentration.

Even the academic journal article said there were "considerable" results after the 3 month mark so I'm praying to God something starts being noticeable here soon.

Looking at Santa's updated pic, his hair looks to have an almost orange-tint to it now. 


His skin has noticeably tanned.

@Ace Road: who gave you the DMI formula? I got it from an ebay seller, been using Melitane with DMI and water at a 5%/ 5%/90% ratio.
I'm almost two weeks in. No one really elaborated on the fact DMI is a good option as a carrier. The seller told me that I should see results in 2-3 months.

@Ladd: good idea

@Pseudocatalase: did his skin become tanned because of the solution? Did he apply it on his face as well?

Melanotan starts darkening hair after 2-3 weeks, but I'm talking about low pigmented hair, not white hair. I don't know if you'll have to wait longer with a lotion.

The tanning effect is fairly slow, but clearly noticeable after a month or so. The face has been treated with shampoo too (actually hard to avoid doing this) to encourage pigmentation of facial hair. This is NOT A DYE. The skin tanning, and hair color changes, are done through the individual's natural pigmentation. Yes, this solution, with acetyl hexapeptide-1, will tan skin without using UV rays, and with no known association with any skin cancer (the same is true of melanotan, but acetyl hexapeptide-1 is a smaller peptide for good topical effect). It clearly boosts repigmentation of hair in our very limited sample, and we hope it works as well for our customers (and you, mixing your own).

So how would you compare melitane and melanotan? On melanotan I didn't notice a big difference in skin pigmentation when I stayed out of the sun. The combo with UV makes a type 1 actually tan like a type 3-4, but not much without UV exposure. The hair ( naturally reddish) however did change without UV exposure. The darkness depended on the dosage.
Would that mean melitane is even stronger when it comes to darkening hair - skin without UV exposure?

There are a few horror stories on melanotan, but in the end thousands of people have been using it for about ten years without any problems. You have that story of a supplier having added insulin, you have a story of a woman with a tanning saloon addiction getting skin cancer ( and she had once used melanotan for 3 weeks - so it's probably not related) and you have an obese woman with heart problems - probably not related.

My post was probably overlooked because it was posted at the end of the last page before a wave of approvals. I'm going to repost it and hopefully get a response. Thanks.

"@Pseudocatalase

Above and beyond gray hair, from a pure entrepreneurial perspective, it is awesome to see the growth in your business. I'm eager to see how far you take this.

Would it be possible to offer a PC-KUS and acetyl hexapeptide-1 powder combo for those of us who mix their own solution? It would help European users AND lower the total cost for buyers. My self mixed solution costs .066 cents per gram of lotion. Yours is .50 cents per gram. It's a win win. We get a cheaper option and your profit margin stays the same if not more when you consider demand and production cost.  I will happily continue to give you my money if you make this happen."

So I randomly plucked a grey hair today because it was sticking out and annoying me...and what do you know, the root turned out to be black! Couldn't believe my eyes.

The only thing I've been doing for the last month or so is taking the LEF SODzyme and wolfeberry to boost internal catalase so maybe it has been working. 

Hopefully it is a good sign. I'll continue taking the supps and probably try the the new Pseudocatalse product.

If anyone knows how to post pics on here, I'll post one. The root is very black and noticeable.

@Ladd, and to others, this is sort of a business post, so bear that in mind. Currently we are exploring other options to provide acetyl hexapeptide-1 and pseudocatalase. However, we are MORE interested in providing the consumer with a MUCH longer shelf life combination than in providing a powder. I am fairly certain, from a business perspective, that this is the better approach. Such a product would open up non-USA sales and give the consumer what it wants most - an off-the-shelf, ready-to-use, product (probably a bit less expensive than today's offerings). I agree with your personal economic analysis, and you can pursue this personally without too much vigilance and make it happen. All the ingredients in pseudocatalase are cheaply available OTC, and acetyl hexapeptide-1 can be manufactured in quantities suitable to a few hundred batches (one batch would be about 3 months for one person). Of course, there are lots of ways individuals can make mistakes along the way, and we are here to ensure that a product is available with high activity and a reputation to back it. At the present, I think we are the only people providing a product with this combination, and we firmly believe in its safety and viability. We use it ourselves. Daily. That's how we got started. And our preference is to stay ahead of the curve in providing the highest efficacy and least expensive off-the-shelf products for use in treating gray hair and vitiligo. 
  
As a sidenote, to our knowledge, none of the other pseudocatalase offerings have followed our lead and used the formulation that is 4-5 times higher in activity than that provided by everyone else on the market. Do the hydrogen peroxide test to determine the activity of your pseudocatalase product. It does not lie. 

To others reading this thinking this may be braggadocio, if you use our gray hair shampoo, I would expect you to see a difference in 3-4 months. I would expect you to lose half your gray/white hair in a year of use. And if you are not following my expectations, I do not want you to continue to send us your money. We are not some Dr. Oz miracle treatment company. We provide what we believe is the most efficacious products on the market, and we want to set realistic expectations in our customers, and match or exceed them. That's the only good long-term business plan.

Thanks for posting it again, Ladd. I also wonder about what carrier would be best to use with melitane. I've been recommended to use DMI ( Been doing it for 2 weeks now - too soon to tell about results I guess). Just wanted to have some opinions on it.

Are these expectations based on Santa's results alone or has anyone else achieved half reversal in a year or so? And if they have, are there any pictures?
