Some of you might of heard of melanotan injectables increasing melanin which leads to both hair and skin darkening.

Of course many of us don’t like the idea of needles and cooling the stuff all the time. So I’ve been looking for alternatives in regards to hair and skin darkening  ( not dyes or sunless tanners) but a darkening that comes from within so you don’t have the roots growing out problem anymore which would be great for redheads not loving their natural color or people going grey

Some of the patents are online and some even come with formulas:

There are many of them online but I think stuff coming from J & J has the best chance to be reliable stuff.

 

I'm not a scientist and cannot formulate and one small detail could sometimes ruin the whole thing. So I hope somebody could help me further.

Thanks in advance

 

PS there are other patents on this issue too. I can send them if you like.

Why do you think that because a formula has been patented it will work?

More important, why do you think that it will NOT harm you?

Please read about hair pigmentation, its genetics and biochemistry before doing crazy stuff.

We have a gray hair serum, please read about the complexities of antioxidant enzymes before doing anything else.

Patents have a very low "level of proof", like one person saying it worked. It is very common thing for skin care companies to file patents as a means of marketing.

I've read a lot about it and believe in it, this wasn't the only patent. I just think no one should write it off before researching and testing every formula.
I'm not saying it would not harm me, I'm just trying to find the right people that believe in it and help me further to see what could be the best non harmful option in regards to this.

Let the people at J&J experiment, they have the resources.

We don't encourage using our clients as Guinea pigs. I get enough emails from people who have been hurt by experimenting on their skin and letting others experiment with them. The whole generation of my mother reached their 50s with very little hair because of perms, hair straighteners and hair coloring.

I am sure you will be able to find another forum where such experimentation is welcome.
