Repigmentation = Melanin

Why Does Hair Colour Vary from Blonde to Black?

  • The natural hair colour is the result of melanin deposited along the hair shaft and the cortex (middle layer).
  • Colour shade depends on the amount and distribution of these two types of melanin (genetically programmed): eumelanin (black-brown pigment) and pheomelanin (red-yellow pigment)
