I think my best option is to just keep using these bottles and ignore trying to look etc at present. 

After 2 to 3 haircuts I might check hair again. This should be maybe 12 weeks of use and I will know by this stage my own results.
Good news is some of you other peoples results will be coming thru then too. 

Will be an interesting few weeks ahead. Science theory vs reality.


Ok update.
First haircut after using Depo product.
Appears no change to existing grey hairs.
Remainder of hair seems to have have improved slightly. 

As a side note if you read the original study on Pc-Kus it was the patients eyebrows which showed signs of grey hair reversal. Now the typical lifespan of normal hair is one to two years and an eye brow is 3 months. This is why an eyebrow only grows short whereas head hair is longer. 

Taking this hair life cycle into account it might explain why forum members fail to see any rapid change in exisiting grey hairs. You might need to wait till they enter the last part of lifecycle and fall out while allowing for new growth. Time frame very long. 

Is anyone who is using Depo in this forum have a full head of grey hair? Maybe these people could see new natural colour growth emerge easier than others.

Doing a voluntary experiment on my 30 year old guinea pig son. I wanted to see if a young healthy person that has just started to get a few gray hairs would get better results. He's very healthy, eats right, does some supplements and works out daily.

He has a small patch of about 7 to 10 gray hairs in a 3/8 inch diameter on the back of his head, hardly noticeable. I started applying the product twice a day, less than a week ago. Two days ago I found another patch of about 5 hairs behind his ear and started applying there too.

Today we got together to apply the treatment and the first patch is already very hard to find. There are a couple still grayish that you can spot if you look hard and know where the original patch was located. I even used my glasses to find them which I hadn't needed to do before. The other hairs seem to be changing already, because they are already dark enough that I can't find them. My son didn't believe it and got a hand held mirror to look and agreed. My wife thought we were full of bull until she looked at it herself. The hair behind his ear is still unchanged but its only about the second day of treatment.

I kept thinking it was harder to spot his gray hair the last couple of days, but I just chalked it up to my vision. I'm actually shocked that he could get these kind of results that quick.

Does older white hair take longer to reverse.... Yup

His treatment included no DMSO

That is a massive post there from beefster! Surely one of the biggest break-throughs on here!?

Thank you for sharing that beefster. I take it you was using depo-melanin?

This gives me great hope, being a 28 year old male, with only abit of greying, mainly at the temples!!

Beefster - Nice work.  Thanks for the info!

I don't have any medical training, so there could be variables that I don't know about, but logically I would think older gray hair would take longer to reverse.  Newer gray would likely have less H2O2 built up and would consequently be easier to reverse.  It seems that your experiment agrees with that.

As for me, I'm now about 6 weeks in.  Last week I thought I may have noticed less gray, but it's really hard to tell at this point.  It's very possibly just my imagination at this point.  If there's been reversal, it's definitely not overwhelming enough to convince my I've had any for sure.

Beefster - I'm pretty confused from the results you mentioned about your son.  Depo-Melanin is not a hair dye, so unless your son shaves his head frequently, I do not understand how you would see any change in color to the existing hair because the already gray, visible hair shaft would not change color.  It would only be new hair growth that would show any sign of change.  Could you clarify?

Hey, I'm joining you in this self experiment with Depo-melanin. This is only day 3. 

I'm focusing the experiment on my nearly Snow White facial hair. I shaved so that I have nothing but short white hairs, making application easy. 

I'm applying twice a day and spending time afterwards in the sun. 

I've done my research (and have a biochemistry background) so I'm optimistic that this could work. I've the same concerns as others. 

Also, there are several people who have been posting all over the Web about this product. I suspect they're really marketing this product and trying to generate a buz. "Kyle", who has posted on this forum is one of them...

Anyway, I'm glad to have found a group of fellow experimenters.

Experiment update:

I have to admit that if I read the first experiment post on the internet my BS meter would have been flashing lights and setting off sirens! LOL 

After yesterdays results, I decided to checkout the test patch of gray hairs in my normal bathroom lighting (a swag with two 100 watt incandescent bulbs in opaque glass globes) as well as in a source of good natural lighting (a large bay window in the living room) before doing an application. In the bathroom where all other previous observations were made I could only pick out a few grays while wearing glasses. In the natural lighting I was able to find a few more but it was hard. In the past I never worn glasses for observing except for yesterday. 

My take is that the grays are developing some color a varying stages, but the process has started much faster in a younger person that has just barely begun to gray. It is definitely much harder to see the gray hairs. 

Everybody always thinks that gray hair reversal only happens with new growth but that doesn't seem to me as how it happens. My son, a computer engineer, was expecting it to happen that way too. Read my post for more info as to how gray reverses page 21 post #7214  If you read this you will get a better understanding.

Update on my own hair:

My side burns the first hair to gray on my head are starting to get many hairs that have colored in different stages of darkness. If i get a sideways view I see a lot that have just started to get a hint of color. This type of color is almost impossible to see straight on. Much of these results were already started with my previous home made sod/catalase treatment program.

I took a close up of my snowy white beard. I'll take more photos if I see any changes.

I wanted to do photos but my grey hair is faint so photos would have been unreliable. 

Would be good someone with visible grey hair or eyelashes to take progress pix.
