Wanna give progress update.

I have been working on this religiously for 6 months with the following protocol:

-pseudocatalase at least 2x day
-uvb lamp 3x week for 4 min
-dermarolling occasionally
-paba 3g/day
-wheatgrass/leafy green juicing daily
-increased copper intake via liver (pate) and copper supplementation
-vitamin b supplementation
-folic acid supplementation
-brewer's yeast
-blackstrap molasses
-ginger intake
-fo ti

Basically I feel like I have tried EVERYTHING and unfortunately, it looks like I might have some repigmentation in a few (I only have a few) gray chest hairs; however, my beard (primary concern) has actually gotten a little worse.  So, none of this has even halted the progression of gray in my beard/sideburns.

Very frustrated but I'm not giving up yet.

@troppo that is some serious dedication...and to think I am frustrated with just depo melanin alone!! Hope your results work better man you deserve it. Depo not even re-pigmented 1 single hair for me, waste of time. I really don't think there is anything to fully stop the greying process. Possibly re-pigment a couple of odd hairs here and there but not to the scale we all hope, I just don't think you can stop your body if that is its DNA

For seven months, one of us has used ONLY our pseudocatalase shampoo on half his head. It is important to us to note that we reviewed all of Schallreuter's work and formulated the most active of her pseudocatalase variants. As far as we can tell, all others producing pseudocatalase are using her earliest variant, which has 4-5 times less activity in disproportionating hydrogen peroxide. 

The protocol used for this photo was: lather up on the right half of the scalp, wait 5 minutes, follow by regular hair cleaning. He is convinced there is SOME pigment return. But you can judge that for yourself. He is going to look very weird if the discrepancy between sides gets stronger.

troppo, I would actually have to wonder a little bit about your copper intake if you are supplementing in addition to all that copper-rich food.  Copper is highly necessary for your body to build the protective enzymes but there is also a fine line where excess copper will very much work against your anti-oxidant status.  Amazing all that you are doing, I wish you had better results, but could there possibly be too much copper in your diet?

Carl C. Pfeiffer, MD, reported a number of associations between elevated copper and adverse health conditions. Read Zinc and Other Micronutrients, or Mental and Elemental Nutrients

I don't see a real difference either but to me it looks like an older man having been grey for many many years. As a more recent greying person I hope that I can see a bigger difference.

@Pseudocatalase

Thanks for your continued transparency.

What happened to the blonde in the original photo? Did it darken?

Personally, I can see a slight difference in color (5%-15%) with the newest photo. If one starts at the top back of the head and moves their eyes diagonally downward there is definitely a darker hue.

Also, I speculated on this before and it shouldn't be overlooked: 

The slow progress may not be a product issue (pseudocatalase), but actually an application issue.

Shampoo, like all soaps, was never intended to be used for a purpose like this (absorbing a solution into the skin). Soaps are designed to dilute and cover surface area in order to clean. Exactly what you don't want with something like pseudocatalase.

It's like taking a dime sized amount of lotion and the applying it in the shower. Yes, the lotion will cover your entire arm, but with what efficiency? Water would dilute the lotion and as a result the lotion would lose a significant amount of effectiveness. Not to mention water also creates a natural barrier to the skin.

Consider this: What happens when you mix paint with water? What happens when you try to paint a wet wall? What happens when you do both at the same time?

The efficiency loss when comparing shampoo and lotion could be colossal difference maker.
