Foligain Color Rescue
For many years, scientists have suspected that hair turns grey over time because some kind of naturally occurring "toxin" interferes with melanin's ability to saturate hair shafts with colour. (Melanin is the substance produced by the body that colours 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 colour from the hair, giving it a grey appearance. But over time, as the level of catalase continues to decline and the level of hydrogen peroxide increases, the grey gives way to white.
How does Foligain Color Rescue work?
Foligain Color Rescue contains the enzyme Catalase. The absence of Catalase is thought to initiate the chain reaction resulting in grey hair. The supplement combines Catalase with other nutrients recognised for their benefits in promoting fuller, healthier and thicker hair.
Foligain supplement against grey hair helps to stimulate melanocytes to increase the body's ability to produce melanin pigment, which overcomes the genetically based tendency to produce less or little melanin. Hair colour is determined by a pigment known as melanin that's distributed through the middle of the hair shaft. The range of colour, from blond to brown to black, is determined by the number, size, and colour of the pigment granules. When hair is produced by the reproduction of the epithelial cells comprising the follicle, newly produced melanin accumulates in the cells and colours the hair itself as it emerges from the follicle. As we get older, the pigment cells in our hair follicles gradually die. When there are fewer pigment cells in a hair follicle, that strand of hair will no longer contain as much melanin and will become a more transparent colour - like grey, silver, or white - as it grows. As people continue to get older, fewer pigment cells will be around to produce melanin. Eventually, the hair will look completely grey.
Foligain Color Rescue inhibits the process of turning grey, (the speed of) the development of the number of grey hairs is thus reduced. In addition, white / grey hairs can become less 'whitish' or, to some extent, regain their original color. Restoring color is obviously more difficult (and sometimes not possible anymore) than preventing or inhibiting greying hair.
The results may vary since people start to have grey hair at different stages in their lives and no hair strands respond at the same time or in the same way to the treatment. Moreover, reducing grey hair is a complicated and lengthy process. Results are usually observable after 6 to 9 months. Read more about this in the article What to do about grey hair?
Other key ingredients in Foligain Color Rescue
- Horsetail (7% extract): Helps hold moisture in the hair and keeps hair looking glossy and bright without having the feeling of being saturated with oil. It also promotes strong hair roots and protects against scalp irritation.
- Plant Sterols (45% beta-sitosterol): This agent helps to counteract stress hormones that contribute to the aging of the hair. As we know that stress hormones can contribute to the loss of hair as well as premature greying.
- Barley Grass: Promotes and enhances the original hair colour by preventing the molecular structure in the hair from prematurely loosing life. Barley Grass thickens the hair as well as providing exterior nutrients forming a shield of protection that can force the grey to eliminate itself.

I am 52 years old and since the birth of my 2nd daughter gray and sind half a year I now use Foligain against gray and now about 50% less gray. I continue for 6 months to see if it disappears completely so that I do not have to dye my hair every 3 weeks.

Still no success after 6 months
Bücher Bruno, Schweiz (26 January 2018)The Hair Growth Specialist:
Inhibiting the process of getting gray is indeed a difficult and lengthy process. Too bad it does not give you enough results so far. The tablets need to be used 6-9 months before any results can be seen. It is also important to have the right expectations. The process of graying is inhibited with this product, so the (speed of) the formation of the number of gray hairs is reduced. So there is a big chance that without this product you would have developed a lot more gray hair. How fast this process goes and to what extent the process is inhibited is very personal and unfortunately difficult to predict. Already white / gray hairs can also become less 'whitish' or regain their original color; this is more difficult than inhibiting or slowing down the development of graying hair. The product will give the most results with regard to inhibiting the development of gray hair.
I am a 43-year-old male, and use anti-gray tablets for about two years. First those of Absonutrix and since a few months those of Foligain. Both have not turned out to be a panacea for me: still gray temples, but it also continues in my chest hair. Very subtle I find the tablets of Foligain a little more pleasant in use, and I'm going to continue because I do not exclude that it has a positive effect on the overall quality of my hair

I use the product for just 4 months and I see a positive change and can only recommend it. When I'm using the product for 9 months I will have no more gray hairs.
Mkay, Deutschland (14 March 2017)
I have naturally red hair Siberian blonde, because I received many reactions that I have such a nice color, it was really hard for me that I got gray hairs, hence my search for what to do about gray hair. I found foligain, I use it one month now and I see no white locks anymore, am satisfied with the service of the hair growth specialist.
tessa durand, Wommelgem (8 February 2017)
I use this product for 6 months and see no change. Perhaps this product should be used for longer than 6 months. I will continue, but right now I'm quite disappointed in this product.
Chris, Belgium (15 December 2016)The Hair Growth Specialist:
This product should be used at least 6-9 months to see first results. In addition, it is important to have the right expectations: the process of becoming gray hairs will be slowed down using this product, (the speed of) the occurrence of the number of gray hairs can be reduced and already white/gray hairs may become less 'white'.
Voy por el segundo envase, dicen que empieza a actuar desde el cuarto. Cuando lo tome, ya diré lo que pasa. Lo importante es que tengo fé en el producto por la experiencia de gente próxima. Y, más importante, en esta pg. he encontrado los mejores precios.
