FOLIGAIN® COLOR RESCUE, designed to promote and enhance your original hair color
How does FOLIGAIN® COLOR RESCUE work?
FOLIGAIN® COLOR RESCUE works to reactivate dormant or near dead pigment cells throughout the body to help to restore gray hair back to its original hair color. The results may vary since people start to have gray hair at different stages in their lives and no hair strands respond at the same time or in the same way to treatment. You should notice a difference in usually 4 to 9 months.
For many years, scientists have suspected that hair turns gray over time because some kind of naturally occurring "toxin" interferes with melanin's ability to saturate hair shafts with color. (Melanin is the substance produced by the body that colors hair, skin and eyes.) But it took a team of researchers at the University of Bradford in Great Britain, to figure out the exact biological and chemical process. The main culprit, it turns out, is an excess of hydrogen peroxide, naturally produced by hair cells.
Hair cells in people of all ages produce some hydrogen peroxide. But in young people, it's quickly broken down into its harmless elements of hydrogen and oxygen by the enzyme catalase. As we get older, however, the hair cells produce smaller amounts of catalase, and less hydrogen peroxide gets broken down.
As the bleach piles up, the melanin doesn't work as readily. At first, it strips a little color from the hair, giving it a gray appearance. But over time, as the level of catalase continues to decline and the level of hydrogen peroxide increases, the gray gives way to white. The whole mechanism is upset by too much hydrogen peroxide which is a very concentrated form of oxygen.
