Having a gray hair always signifies your true age. No matter how young you feel, no matter how young you look but the streaks on grey on your head will always give your age away.
While I have always believed that age is nothing but a number, I am also convinced that I will look much younger than I really am if only I haven’t inherited my family’s predilection to having grey hair at a young age. I got my first streaks of grey when I was in sophomore year of university. When I was younger, I thought it was cool (like Jean Grey!) but now that I am older – and spending up to 4,000 pesos for hair colors – I now consider it a curse.
That’s why I look at Grey Away with so much interest and hope. Having your hair colored is expensive – I actually went through a phase where I’d color my hair any hue just to hide my grey hair: purple, ash blonde, blonde, dark blue – I went through all that just to remove any traces of grey. One coloring session takes four hours on the salon chair, a burning tingling sensation at the scalp (when I went blonde, they had to soak my hair in bleach – it was awful) and countless washes and blow drying.
Grey Away promises to remove a the hassles just by regularly spraying the solution directly to the scalp in a period of 42 days – before any visible results.
What causes grey hair, anyway? The pigment that gives color to human skin, eyes and hair is called melanin.As we grow old, the build-up of hydrogen peroxide in our hair follicles causes oxidative stress. This inhibits the production of melanin by the color-producing cells called melanocytes. Without melanin, there is absence of color. Thus, our hair stands turn grey.
The time when our hair turns grey is dictated by our genetics and other hereditary factors. Greying of hair can also be caused by stress, smoking, virtiligo, thyroid disease, lack of proper diet, and Vitamin B12 deficiency. It can also be caused by medications or treatments like chemotherapy.
Seeing a demand in the market for a serum against grey hair, Dermpharma Inc, the company behind the phenomenal Minoxidil Regroe Hair Regrowth Treatment, recently launched GREY AWAY, which stops the greying of hair and brings back the natural color of hair by stimulating the production of melanin, the pigment that gives hair its color.
Grey Away Anti-Grey Hair Treatment is a scientific breakthrough in hair color restoration. It contains Melitane®, a biomimetic polypeptide that stimulates melanin production; and EMortal Pep™, a 4-amino acid polypeptide that promotes hair growth.
Grey Away is very easy to use:
1. Wash and dry hair thoroughly.
2. Spray Grey Away onto scalp and massage gently.
3. Repeat the process twice a day, one in the morning and another at night
Since I began the process at night, I made sure to clean my scalp first by applying alcohol in a cosmetic cotton and gently rubbing it in my scalp. This is to remove the dirt and residue accumulated during the day.
If things go according to plan, I can expect to see my grey hair turn to black again in 2 months. Note that if you are a natural brunette, of course, your natural hair color is brown and it will revert to the same hue.
Pregnant or lactating mothers, while using Greu Away is safe- the team behind the product recommends you skip using the product for the meantime.
Grey Away Anti-Grey Hair Treatment retails for PHP995 and is available in all leading drugstores and department stores nationwide.
