​What is the science behind Mayraki anti-gray hair color restoring Treatment?

Why Hair Turn Gray?

To get to the root of grey hair, it’s first important to understand the anatomy of hair. Each hair bulb has dermal papilla cells which determine the formation and life cycle of hair. Melanocytes on these cells produce and distribute melanin (a pigment that determines our natural hair color) which is then transferred to the keratinocytes that make up the cells in the hair shaft. 

The graying process, also known as canities, is caused by the loss of hair color, which also means that the melanocytes are not producing as much melanin as before, therefore they are unable to transfer the melanin to the keratinocytes. When this happens, your hair appears to turn grey or white.

What Actually Happened When Your Hair Goes Gray?

Scientists have also investigated the differences in genotype between graying hair follicle and black hair follicle of young peoples and found that early hair graying phenomenon is related to downregulation of MC1R/MITF/tyrosinase pathway. Based on the the  Journal of Advanced Pharmaceutical Technology & Research, melanin synthesis in melanocyte or melanoma cells is mainly regulated by MC1R/MITF/tyrosinase-signaling pathway.
