When I buzz my hair w/ no guard and get a tan I look good (nw 1.5 or 2), but the grays were getting more evident last summer and I grew my hair out again. If I buzzed my hair again and applied bimatoprost would that get rid of the gray? Internet research is inconclusive for me on this. Also, approximately how many bottles of this stuff might be needed to apply to a head? I can afford $100/mo. which is about5 bottles from inhouse.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Allergan states on their webpage regarding Lumigan that "pigmentation change is due to increased melanin content in the melanocytes rather than to an increase in the number of melanocytes."

Bimatoprost will darken your hair and skin a bit where you apply it, that's why putting it on the skin like for beard hairs won't be a good idea since the darkening of the skin could be irreversible. But on the scalp that shouldn't be a problem. I'd test it first in a small area and see if it helps at all.

Hey ! Why don't you just make things simple and use Greason 2000...After all it's a lot cheaper and will last longer....Besides it actually is designed to get rid of grey hair.

Thanks for the replies guys. That irreversible skin pigmentation does not sound good. I cannot use grecian or other hair coloring because I would be shaving the hair down every day or two. I would shave it completely but I look better with the little bit of hair there and its a pain in the a ** since I have alot of coverage still. GRRRRRR!!!
