Forget taking those regular trips to the hair salon or buying a new box of Just For Men every month.

Unwanted gray hair may soon become a thing of the past, according to a team of researchers from the Netherlands, Germany and the U.K..

In a new online research report published in The FASEB (Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology) Journal, those who go gray develop ‘massive epidermal oxidative stress’ through the accumulation of hydrogen peroxide in the hair follicle, causing their hair to bleach itself from the inside out.

The inside-out bleaching, or graying, process can be cured with a proprietary treatment described as a topical, sunlight-activated compound made into a 'modified pseudocatalase,' which stops the graying, according to the report.

For generations, numerous remedies have been concocted to hide gray hair,’ said Dr. Gerald Weissmann, the editor-in-chief of The FASEB Journal.

‘But now, for the first time, an actual treatment that gets to the root of the problem has been developed.

The study also shows that the same treatment works for the skin condition vitiligo which causes de-pigmentation of sections of skin.
