Now-a-days, graying of hair has become one of the most common problems for both men and women; this is due to the adoption of unhealthy lifestyle, pollution, stress, poor diet, hormonal changes and usage of detergents. The number of pigment granules naturally begin to decrease as a person ages. The person usually begins to gray between twenty-eight and forty years of age. The reason for this is that the melanocytes begin to slow down and produce less melanin. This is part of the natural aging… Expand


Formulation and Evaluation of Herbal Hair Dye: An Ecofriendly Process
The increase in environmental and health hazards in the manufacture of dyes and its use throughout world is a major concern. This work was made possible while investigating the alternative to theExpand
Evaluation of Organic Hair Dye Formulation by an Environment Friendly Process
Graying of hair is a natural phenomenon attributable to ageing and frequent use of synthetic shampoos which has encouraged application of synthetic dyes with the increase in the usage of hazardousExpand
Senile hair graying: H2O2‐mediated oxidative stress affects human hair color by blunting methionine sulfoxide repair

  • FASEB journal : official publication of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology
  • 2009
It is shown for the first time by FT‐Raman spectroscopy in vivo that human gray/white scalp hair shafts accumulate hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in millimolar concentrations and this new insight could open new strategies for intervention and reversal of the hair graying process. Expand

Physiological and toxicological changes in the skin resulting from the action and interaction of metal ions.
  • A. Lansdown
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Critical reviews in toxicology

Morphology and histochemistry of human hair.
The broad outlines of the techniques used in the study of hair are reviewed, with particular attention being paid to the processes of chemical staining which enable one to define various aspects of the chemical composition of the hair's microscopic sub-components. Expand
Morphology and histochemistry of human hair.
This chapter is concerned with the structure of the mature human hair shaft and the chemical composition of its subcomponents as adduced from the examination of fibres mainly with the conventionalExpand
Interaction of major coat color gene functions in mice as studied by chemical analysis of eumelanin and pheomelanin.
Phenotypes of chinchilla mice that are wild type or mutant at the brown and/or slaty, loci indicate that functioning TRP2 and TRP1 are necessary, in addition to high levels of tyrosinase, for a full production of eumelanin. Expand
