Is anyone interested in discussing this product for reversing white hair GR7-professional

https://gr-7.uk/hair-loss-treatment/

This product claims to be able to reconstruct the structure of melanin, turning all hair black within two weeks. Has anyone confirmed that this product is not just a hair dye? I’ve noticed that Brian Johnson is also using this product, as he has described it in his blueprint plan and given his recommendation. and I hope friends who have used it can come and share their experiences.Thank you !

I have order some. I look forward to the experiment. If I understand the marketing claims, there are two things happening: (1) the gray hairs are changed chemically to become darker (but not a dye), and (2) the hair root is changed / “healed” to produce darker hairs. The startup process involves heavy usage of chemical at first to address the existing hair. Then, a maintenance dose is employed to address the emerging gray hairs from the roots. And, hopefully, fewer hair roots are emerging gray over time.

Did I get that wrong?

I just ordered it right now, did not know anything about it till this point. Price delivered to NY pretty steep but pulled the plug as the grey hair is my nemesis lol. Hope it is not just a dye because that would be a total ripoff and would not use a dye anyway.

Yes, there’s been some discussion about it in one of the hair re-pigmentation threads.

The question of is it a dye/isn’t it a dye is sort of philosophical. Here’s a few definitions of types of hair dyes that I found on Healthline:

Temporary hair colors are applied in the form of rinses, gels, mousses and sprays. These products merely sit on the surface of the hair and are washed out with the next shampoo.

Semi-permanent dyes penetrate into the hair shaft and do not rinse off with water like temporary colorings. Semi-permanent dyes usually come in liquid, gel, or aerosol forms.

Permanent dyes require more work to apply, but the hair color lasts until the new hair - “roots” - grows in. Because permanent dyes contain hydrogen peroxide, they cover gray hair more effectively and can be used to lighten hair color, unlike other dyes.

These definitions don’t seem to include compounds that are biologically active that induce changes in hair color, such as phytochemicals, amino acids, supplements, drugs or other molecules. I would argue that if you are using a biologically active compound to induce cellular changes to improve or restore the function of follicles then it’s not a dye. Yet, here’s a paper that makes a distinction of natural dyes via phytochemicals/antioxidants that improve hair color. So I suppose some people may still view such molecules applied topically as dyes. Conversely, people taking drugs orally that improve hair color (or hair regrowth) such as minoxidil or finasteride tend not to call them dyes even though the result is improved hair color.

An analogous issue is that of Tretinoin or OS-1 to for skin. Drugs (or peptides) applied to the skin improve the skin cells and the result is fewer wrinkles and better appearance. Yet, nobody argues that these compounds are makeup, which would be the equivalent to hair dyes as defined above, since makeup does nothing biologically.

Regarding GR7 specifically, in the other thread, @vblyznichenko raised the issue that the gallic acid ingredient may be acting as a dying agent since it’s used in some dyes. After a little digging, this may be the case, but it’s unclear. Here’s a patent that I found on the subject of hair dyes containing gallic acid.

On the other hand, gallic acid is a polyphenol antioxidant that is found in green tea and other natural compounds purported to be good for aging and hair color. Gallic acid may also be activating sterubin according to this paper, which was the flavanoid responsible for reduced gray hair in the yerba santa paper. So it may just be a better way of getting sterubin working than the natural extract from narrow leaf yerba santa.

Will wait for your reviews.

There isn’t even an “about us” in the webpage. It is just an online store.

Been using it for last two weeks
It is a dye but a fancy one. If you apply it too often makes your hair darkish reddish. Did 5 days in row then went every 5-7 days. Hair looks good about original color but as i said if overdone it will not look original. Think of B Johnson dude’s darkish and about red. So just find what frequency works for you.

Btw did shit for my facial hair. So stopped using it on facial.

Thanks. “Too often”. The instructions say 2x per day for first week. What is too often?

1 Like

Too often is dependent on hair type, natural color, how grey you are etc… if you’re completely grey, then you do it more often(meaning twice per day but you may need more than seven days). I want my hair to look natural not fake color. So o did 5 days twice daily (dint wash my hair those five days btw) and stopped because my hair started turning a bit darker with a red hue to it (not my natural color) . Now i do it once every 5-7 days. My hair is same as original. So it’s more like trial and error i d say.

I’ve completed my 6th day, and I’d describe my white hairs as a blond or very light brown. They blend with my light brown hair very naturally. I’ve been doing it 2x a day and I think I need to continue with that for a few more days. I was very skeptical, expecting this to be a waste of money, but so far I’m pleasantly surprised.

Yes it is really good at hiding your grey hair and giving it a natural look. Very hard to tell that I ever had grey hair on the sides. Having said that it is simply e really great and natural looking dye. If you stop using it within a month I think your hair would turn grey again. So I like it but not a permanent solution or a reversal of grey hair. Very expensive but I think given how easy it is to apply, how natural the hair looks, and the fact you can keep reusing it for long period (I n my case, light hair color, and grey on the sides only) I think It can easily last over one year. When you think of it about $70 (depending on shipping) for a full year or more naturally looking hair, then it is worth it. I for once hate the way grey hair looks on me. For some people it doesn’t look too bad, for others it adds 10 years to their age lol

Yes, I agree. It’s quite an improvement over other options in terms of the natural look, more natural ingredients, and lack of staining. It’s quite a bit cheaper than traditional dyes if one has short hair and has to dye often. My grey grows in patchy and looks odd, so I have dyed since I was rather young. It’s better than having people stare at my head. I think I’ll keep buying this product.

I agree. I have Irish blood which means my hair goes white early (my family anyway). I’ve had a white beard since my 40’s. I put it off long enough. I hope this works for me. I’m on day 3.

Okay, this stuff works for me. I’m on day 5…still doing 2x per day. My hair is darkening very well. The darker natural hair changed more quickly…the white hair was slower to come around. I’m going to stop the 2x per day now. I’ll shift to 1x every other day before shifting to 1x per week. I’ve used about ½ the bottle.

Impressive. I’m glad it doesn’t look like the usual hair dyes…they look awful. I can tell a mile off if a guy is using them. They look like Kirby; the White House press guy.

May I ask you ( or anyone successfully using the product) how exactly you use the product? Just by holding the bottle reversed on your scalp, and going over the whole scalp ?

I notice I use a lot of product doing so and all my ( long ) hair ends up being wet every time, so wondering if there are better ways to apply it everywhere without almost using a third of the bottle every time … ( am also using it on my eyebrows )
I appreciate any tip you may have :relaxed:

@eli I use very little…I am still on the 1st bottle (i used about ½ in the first week). I wet my fingers and then rub my hair roots. Since my hair is short, I can focus on the roots. The key is to be patient…results will come slowly but once it happens you won’t need to do much to keep it going. At first I used it 2x everyday for 1 week…i didn’t wash my hair for 1 week. I then shifted to EOD for a week or two (I don’t recall exactly). Now I just use it once per week with a focus on the areas where there is more grey/white. I do it on the weekend so I can skip washing my hair for ~40 hours.
