 New Shampoo may Reverse Graying of Hair
A research team led by Dr. Bruno Bernard, head of the hair biology research team at beauty firm L'Oreal in Paris has announced that it may be able to come up with a shampoo that will reverse the greying of hair.

The team said an enzyme called TRP 2 was responsible for maintaining the melanocytes of the skin in active state and that the same enzyme may be able to trigger the pigment-producing cells in hair follicles as well.

"The hair whitening process is slow and progressive, so we can prevent it," the UKs Daily Express quoted Dr Bernard as saying.

However Angela Marshall, an image consultant and the owner of Surrey-based Appearance Management feels this shampoo may not benefit everyone, "It could be problematic for people with very dark hair as their eyebrows would probably still go grey and then their colourings would not match well. So treatment would probably be better for people with blonde hair where there would not be such a stark contrast," she said.

The researchers hope to have this shampoo on the market in two years time.
