L'Oreal has announced that they will be working a pill that will prevent those gray strands from popping up on our heads. Bruno Bernard, head of the Hair Care, Quality and Color team at L'Oreal, first spoke about the cosmetic company's research, telling the Daily Mail the pill will be based on a fruit extract that mimics an enzyme called TRP-2, which isn't present in hair follicles. TRP-2 helps make pigment-producing cells called melanocytes. In theory, the presence of TRP-2 could prevent hair from going gray.
"Ideally you would take [the pill] for your whole life, but realistically we'd encourage people to start using it before their hair goes grey because we don't think it can reverse the process once it has started," he told the UK paper. "We have a watertight proof of concept, and we think it will have a market among men as well as women."
I don't know how I feel about this. I've always imagined myself having long beautiful gray hair when I'm in my old age. There is nothing wrong with growing old people! The world is so obsessed with looking 25 when they are really 55. It's really unnecessary. I wonder what the health risks are? Poor liver...


What do you guys think? Would you take this pill and prevent the salt & pepper hair?


Have a Good Hair Day!!!
