Depo Melanin experiment started today...got my fingers crossed and hoping for the best.

Solution had no smell, and I've put straight into the fridge after use to keep cool (as instructed)

Solution was quite wet, but I didn't struggle to apply anyway!!

Can someone who is using Depo Melanin please try it also on Grey eyebrows. Mine are black so unfortunately cant use it there.

As mentioned previous the life-cycle of hair in the eyebrow is very short ( 3 months) compared to head hair which can be a year or two.

If Depo Melanin was to work the theory would suggest we can prove it quicker on people with grey eyebrows whom apply it there also.

There is an interesting post been made as Jim will know, regarding his progress on the amazon sight.

It is by a man called Peter.

And he claims to have had success with Depo Melanin!

It's a good idea. I can't do it as my eyebrows aren't the least bit grey.

I have read that Loreal  has a patent for a pill that only prevents gray hair.and cannot do nothing about the hair that is already gray. However in the patent US 8,445,004 B2 one can read that the use of a treatment shampoo can lead to REPIGMENTATION of gray hair and ALSO can be used to delay whitening of the hair :

Patent N0.: US 8,445,004 B2
May 21, 2013

"Treatment Shampoo:

This shampoo is used at each washing with a leave-in time
of about one minute. Prolonged use, of the order of two

months, leads to the gradual repigmentation of gray hair.

This shampoo may also be used preventively in order to
delay Whitening of the hair."

So is this a cure for gray hair or just a preventive ?

@Zeno,
I think Stargazer is the most knowledgeable person within this forum with regards to L'Oreal claims of reversing or halting the graying process, and the posts in this forum have been far from positive toward L'Oreal. If you are stating correctly what you've read, then it's further confirmation that L'Oreal continues to rattle on about this topic, yet they really don't have a clue.

Interesting find, Zeno.  Here's a link for anyone who is interested:

https://www.google.com/patents/US8445004

So says L'Oreal: "This gel is applied to the areas to be treated twice a day (morning and evening) with a final massage. After three months of application, repigmentation of body hair or head hair of the treated area is observed."

I'm not much on conspiracy theories, but I could raise several surrounding this. 

This appears to be different than the pill they were said to be coming out with in 2015 (giggles) that would prevent grey hair, but not repigment hair.  That story as you probably know got a lot of media attention a couple years ago.  It was heavily scoffed at for the obvious reason...you would never really know for sure if it worked because you wouldn't know if you would have otherwise gone grey(er) if you hadn't taken the pill for 10-20 years as a  preventative.

But this patent you mentioned is not a pill.  So that raises some series questions.  Why tout the pill if you have (apparently) something better in research that actually (so they say) REPIGMENTS hair?  That would be a mega blockbuster. 

Conspiracy theorists have claimed L'oreal really never wants to put such a re-pigmenting product on the market as it would (so say the theorists) kill their current product lines that color hair.  I disagree with this theory because many women would still want the coloring products because they don't like their natural hue (eg, red heads who prefer to be brunette, or brunettes who prefer to be blonde).

The patent applicaiton was filed 4 years ago.  As you know, it was just approved in May.  So, why sit on this IF (big if IMO) the product really works?  Why not bang the drum on it?  God knows the company is not shy about banging the drum about their grey hair research.  They've been doing so for 10 years. 

Unlikely the regulators would classify this shampoo as a drug and not a cosmetic.  So it wouldn't take years of expensive trials before marketing.   And obviously, L'oreal has world class distribution and marketing expertise already in place.  So it's not like they would have to partner with someone to get this on the market.

Whatever it is, I would bet my nickle it's not the real deal, otherwise they would be coming out with this breakthrough product soon...and would have already been bragging about it.  We know Bruno Bernard can't stop running his mouth in the non-stop press releases. 

I do vaguely recall that they were working on a lotion/ shampoo that repigmented hair years ago. 

Call me extremely skeptical given their claims the past 10 or so years.  My guess is upon further research, the product disappointed and didn't justify a product release to the market.   JMO.

To Jcoireangus,

One of Life Extension's staff checked the reply pane on an ipad and the image icon appears for him.  It is also appearing for me as i type.  Am sorry that you don't see it, and the only thing that can be suggested would be if you have a web page, it would be permissible to direct people there at this point.

That looks like a promising new treatment from L'Oreal. Can't wait to watch the youtube videos of Mr. Bernard applying it everyday and seeing his own hair return from gray to dark. I expect the views will be in the millions. In fact the confidence level is so high that this is indeed the cure that I'm currently holding my breath without fear that I'll pass out and expire due to lack of oxygen before we actually see it. More likely though it's just L'Oreal trying to get in the news again to sell more of their current products.


If we were to see news releases like this from
Sederma, which I believe is another French-based company then I would take it seriously because they have in the past come out with products that are proven to work and with real studies to back them up.
