Uncovered the secret of eternal youth in her hair.
Saying "gray in his beard - devil in the ribs" very soon lose relevance by the discovery by American scientists ..
Literally reaching to the roots of hair, researchers at New York Medical University Langone found a special type of protein called Wnt. Through a series of experiments it was found that the bioorganic structure is vital to the reproduction of the color palette of the hair fibers. Scientists believe a breakthrough in science, because the findings open the way for a new generation of drugs and cosmetic products.
The increased level of Wnt, innovative lotions and shampoos back gray hair its natural color. This will save women from the never-ending trips to beauty salons to paint over the roots of graying hair. Innovation will appreciate the many middle-aged men who are not averse to occasionally re-shake hair.
Authors of scientific research has convincingly shown that they have found the protein starts a chain of reactions that allow stem cells to produce the parent or natural dyes.
lack of Wnt protein inevitably leads to a reduction of pigmentation and a gradual loss of true color and shine of hair.
Moreover, it was found that the concentration of Wnt is also crucial for the growth and strength of hair. Hence the researchers concluded that future treatment will restore not only color but also texture of hair, preventing hair loss.
But that's not all! Previous studies have shown that Wnt is also responsible for the production of new hair follicles. Previously it was believed that hair follicles - tiny structures responsible for hair growth - are formed before birth, grow together with its owner, and then die, causing progressive baldness.
Another interesting discovery made by researchers the University of Bradford in England. They found that gray hair can lead to high levels of hydrogen peroxide. Accumulating in the roots of the hair dye blocks the production of peroxide, resulting in premature loss of natural color. Scientists warn that women aged abusing coloring hair turn gray prematurely are at risk.
