I don't know about LLLT: don't underestimate the billion dollar industry of hair dyes. I contacted  about ten different people on different forums having used the LLLT. It did something for hair loss, but it wasn't a miracle cure but they all saw the grey reversal as a more significant side effect. You must know: most people using it had hair loss, most of them didn't care so much about greying and just noted it as a side effect.
Melitane seems to do something for tanning, just like forskolin, melanotan,....but all your doctor will say is: use sunless tanners if you want to have a tan. Just to say that stuff can work even if doctors in general don't know about it.

I've seen the hair dye conspiracy theories before. It just isn't true. With that logic Kodak would have never been uprooted by digital photography.

LLLT has been around for a very long time. If someone with a bunch of white/gray hair did LLLT and they came away with amazing results we would know. I don't buy it but I hope you prove me wrong.

You cant compare hair dyes with kodak. For instance: henna-indigo dyes are safe ( and cheaper) for the hair, improve the texture and yet most people dying their hair use commercial products and complain about the fact that it's drying out their hair. Why do most people don't know anything about safer hair dyes?
Most people going grey are fine with the thought of dying their hair. They're like: It would be better not to dye it but they just buy it when they go buying their veggies, meat, ....It's easy. People know what color to choose after experimenting with a few colors, brands,....and like to stick with it. Big companies like l'oreal know it.

Over here you can find a topic on LLLT and greying: http://www.hairlosshelp.com/forums/messageview.cfm?catid=7&threadid=112075
I read most about salt and pepper people noticing more pepper than salt after a while and most people use it for hair loss anyway.


Another question: I'm almost running out of melitane. The seller is not selling it until september. Would be a shame that I have to stop because of this, especially after seeing my first results on the eyebrows.
On alibaba they don't seem to answer my questions, so if anyone would know about a seller?

If they do, let the buyer beware. Second to worst case scenarios would be a product that does nothing, no delivery or misuse of one's credit card information. Worst case would be receiving something harmful. It would be better to engage in this type of discussion offline.

All henna dyes have red tint (even black). It isn't the best option for the majority of people. Hence why chemical dyes outsell them.

Non U.S. citizens can purchase (with an additional service charge) Nucyte from Ebay using companies like these:

@Ladd: henna mixed with indigo gives dark hair ( with no red in it) even on grey and it's permanent. For some it fades a bit after many months but by that time most have already re-applied.
Henna mixed with amla gives more auburn tints and tone down the red. I've done it all, it's cheaper than dyes and your hair remains healthy. But of course it also grows out and that's why I'm here, to find something that doesn't give me the roots.

I started with wheatgrass ( was pretty cheap over here), tell myself not to expect anything from it, but I want to have tried it, LLLT is expensive so I want to try the other options first and now I'm gonna check out the nucyte websites :-)

@Ladd, you plan on dying it if the greying gets really bad to early?

I kind of go back and forth on the issue. I just turned 28 and I can't imagine what its going to look like at 34-35.

I just don't know of the maintenance is worth it, plus I don't think it would look very natural at all.

With all the technology out there, you would think there would be a way to match a dye to your exact hair color.

The viabox and myus is very interesting if you could buy the seperate products in bulk ( or at least something you could use for a year so you don't have to re-order) and get a formula to create it. It's still a win-win for the seller. Just an idea.

@stefanovic

That's it. No one wants to mix a bunch of stuff together to get the right color. It's tedious and if you mess up you are screwed. The box is easy.

@EN8686

Not sure. I would definitely hate the maintenance. However, if I thought it would make me feel better? Absolutely. Just not there yet (hopefully for a while).

The box is easy but it destroys your hair a lot more than henna amla indigo combo's. But let's not focus on that.
I have some melitane updates: I'm in a good two months, nothing on the greys yet but after about seven weeks I noticed new eyebrow hairs growing in darker ( it's originally yellow) and today I also noticed that two of my new eyelash hairs come in dark. So it definitely has an impact on pigmentation. The question remains: is a combo with pseudocatalase necessary to switch on the greys or does it require more time as it has no pigment and my brows at least had some pigment to start with.

If anyone would be interested, I know an asian company selling melitane in bulk. They emailed me the costs.
