As someone who suffers from premature graying, I can’t articulate how I feel knowing something so revolutionary is out there but of course, doubts regarding the ingredients and manufacturing process always keep me in check. Mr. John Warner didn’t spill the beans on every step he took to make this product, but after some poking around I did find out a bit about the 8 base ingredients.
Baking Soda – well we are used to this. It’s in our toothpaste and probably is used in some hair care regimens around these parts.
Mucuna pruriens- popularly known as velvet bean. Apparently this can be eaten and parts of it may be used as a substitute for coffee.
Sodium Carbonate – this is derived from salt and limestone.
Ferrous – the name alone indicates that this contains iron* and we do know how important iron* is in the hair follicles when it comes to the production of pigment. The site refers to this as a vitamin supplement.
Manganese* gluconate – this too is a trace mineral which may be taken as a supplement. It is great for thyroid function and bone development. Plus it gives energy. Well, it makes sense to feed the follicles so they can work efficiently.
Hydrogen peroxide – this has long been used as a bleaching agent which allows dyes to take
Carbomer – white powdery substance made from acrylic acid and often used in cosmetics.
Diatomaceous earth – naturally occurring sedimentary rock made from ancient deposits of algae.
This had me thinking “hmmm food grade? It must not be too tasty” I don’t know about you but when I hear the term Food grade things like fruits, cocoa beans, and herbs came to mind, not salt and algae and certainly not acid made from acrylic. Maybe one of you science buffs can give us a hand in ascertaining if these things are harmless.
They did say they use between 1- 1.5 percent peroxide to oxidize the mucuna pruriens extract and not for opening up the hair cuticle since that is damaging. They posit that by the time you add Hairprint to your hair the peroxide is virtually gone.
So on the surface, this product looks like an answered prayer for those of us who prefer to keep gray hair at bay. It is one product that works almost immediately, it can be applied at home and goes for about $40 for the tree part system. As with all things we’ve posted about on this site, we encourage you to do your own research, do your own research to see if it’s right for you.
