Hair colour loss hope14th November 2008
Scientists have used a molecule to restore white hair pigment caused by "illness or extreme stress" back to its natural colour.
Researchers from Manchester University and Lubeck University in Germany found that the molecule stimulated the pigments which cause hair colour. Nina Goad, of the British Association of Dermatologists, said: "It's important to note that this is laboratory research and not yet ready for use on patients. However, while the research is still at a very early stage, these findings could potentially pave the way for new therapies that restore colour to white hair."
