The news that a cure for vitiligo has been found due to the research to reverse the effects of graying hair, is circulating every form of media. The truth is, though, this is not a new concept. For years we have considered a link between the buildup of hydrogen peroxide on the skin and vitiligo. Scientists have now discovered that the buildup of hydrogen peroxide in hair follicles is what causes hair to turn gray (a.k.a. oxidative stress); hence, linking it to vitiligo.
