Some ad popped in. Worked fine this time when I tried. I'll use watermelon juice. Can't be worse than dye. Carrot juice is alright too.
People don't mind men with gray hair. They wouldn't call a woman with gray hair a beach bunny, for sure.

This isn't super new, but is cool. Eating foods high in Catalase helps keep the grey at bay. Having a high alkaline diet is supposed to help as well. Making sure you are getting the right amount of copper, magnesium, selenium, and zinc helps too.
Your ad hominem connotes your sciolism. Now that is some funny commentary.
The link just set off my av so I didn't read it, but I'm all for curing gray hair. Watermelon juice works? Sounds interesting.
Glutathione, super-oxide dismutase and catalase are your bodies self made anti-oxidants which mop up free radicals and their by-products (hydrogen peroxide).
Glutathione - This is the most powerful anti-oxident known to man and your body produces it from the amino-acid cysteine. Unfortunately heating cysteine destroys it so modern humans have very low levels. You need to eat raw eggs, raw meat or unpasturised dairy products to get what your body needs. Alternatives are whey protein or replacing your regular milk for baby formula milk (they put whey protein in it). Glutathione is potent and by giving whey protein to mice they lived 60% longer due to its ability to mop up free radicals and hydrogen peroxide.
Super-oxide dismutase (SOD) - You need to make sure you're getting enough zinc, copper and magnesium in your diet because you body makes SOD using them. Intense exercise makes you body upregulate it production.
Catalase - This is made by your body too but also exists in fruit and vegetables. Kiwi fruit, watermelon, carrots, cherries and some others have high levels.
The above not only reverse grey hair they reverse wrinkles too.
