I just got a bottle of Grey Away (Claude Bell).  It has some ingredients that frighten me, and they're misspelled to boot. 

 

MANGANESE ACETYLACETONATE

Amonium Hydroxide

Polyquaternium-10

Superoxide Dismutase



The manganese seems to be the worst one based on what I found.  

http://www.chemcas.org/chemical/msds/cas/AAA/AAA18762-14.aspI am particularly concerned by the risk phrases listed:



 



"R20/21/22 Harmful by inhalation, in contact withskin and if swallowed.



R36/37/38 Irritating to eyes, respiratory system andskin.



R40 Possible risk of irreversible effects."



 



other lovely phrases include:



 



"Possible teratogen. May cause damage to the nervoussystem. May cause damage to the nerves. May cause damage to the lungs"



 



I think that's enough said.

More press coverages from the Cell journal research. 

The problem is that none of these research discoveries ever lead to a bona fide product.  EXT Life Sciences, L'Oreal, research on wnt, research on hydrogen peroxide...it all never gets past the rodent stage. 

I have contended for a long time that many of these geeky researchers want claim to fame and attention so they release a study every few years with big fanfare to the popular media.   Like that's going to get them babes...!

More coverage of the wnt Cell journal breakthrough.   This article mentions the discovery possibly leading to products.  Gee, work on rodents leading to a product for humans...when have we heard that before?   I've lost count.

It's about time L'Oreal researcher Bernard comes out with an update on his grey hair research...other researchers are stealing his thunder.  And his product was supposed to be out years ago.

Hello everyone. It's been quite a while since I was around. That was on the old forum.
I notice that no one answered this post. I am still considering using this stuff as well since grey is gaining ground by the day.
Hey, Stilltryin, do you actually use this product and what do you think of it? I believe that the chemicals you point out are not the killing bullet as you seem to imply. The trick in this product is played by bismuth citrate that superseded lead acetate as the heavy metal dyeing agent. Is bismuth citrate any safer than lead acetate, well, the question is still around. It passes FDA trials, at least, or the european equivalent of it.
Anyway, if you could keep us informed about that stuff, that would be great.
For one, I can affirm after a full year of use that homemade amla oil is perfectly helpless in this fight. I 've made that thing myself and put it on my scalp 3 or 4 times a week since last july with no result. The oil only makes the grey less noticeable by some curious "luminous" effect, but wash the whole thing away and you're back to square 1. On the other hand, it seems to work some kind of wonder with regard to hairloss. In my case at least. But you have to be patient.

Hey, Stilltryin, I'm waiting for an update. Thanx!Satisfied

ABC News video story on wnt.   This is a good story of how a product would work if they ever can develop it into a product:

Interesting...

"A recent, double-blind, placebo-controlled, pilot trial, performed by Ronald M. Lawrence, M.D., Ph.D., showed that 100% of the subjects on MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane), a nutritional supplement that provides biologically active sulfur, showed increased hair growth compared to the group on placebo."

It's his solution and he doesn't know if it contains wnt proteins or not? Wish someone had asked him about that.

Another problem is when it comes to rats it seems as if almost anything works on them. I bet you could soak their bodies in turpentine and the fur would come out dark. Still he shouldn't have any trouble finding volunteers to be human guinea pigs.
