I saw this experiment(link) about Treatment of gray hair in vitiligo patients by direct melanocytes transplant and it looks like they actually managed to transplant melanocytes into gray hairs and restore the color to them. and in another article(link) by the doctors behind this experiment they said that "In cases of gray hairs, the grafted melanocytes will move from regimented epidermis into the outer root sheath then move down to reach the hair matrix thus inducing pigmented hair". so basically melanocyte transplantation inside the hair follicles is possible today via melanocyte transplant in the surrounding skin around the hair?.

    Ask yourself why someone who knows how to prevent gray hair or turn gray hair back to its natural color isn't a billionaire and I think you'll find the answer.

  • @Carey Gregory This experiment got published in other scientific sites like researchgate that only accept content from real scientists with PhD and other conditions related to scientific research and also got referenced in other scientific publications and medical books about vitiligo. so I don't see a reason to question its reliability. this is a surgical procedure that involve taking skin from other parts of your body and the results vary and many times are incomplete even on small vitiligo patches on the skin so it easy to understand why it isn't a wide spread therapy for gray hair.
