After over 4000 volunteers and more than eight years of research and testing, Just for Men – the world experts in men’s hair care have released Control GX – a Grey reducing shampoo and it’s now available in the UK at Boots, Superdrug and other Independent Pharmacies.
I’ve just been sent a couple of bottles over, so I’ll be putting them to the test on my hair in the coming weeks, but I was particularly interested in the technology behind the products, especially as on the side of the box it says ‘the first shampoo with a brain’.
I’m not sure it will be able to find the best route across London in rush hour, but according to the manufacturers notes it is the first shampoo to ‘utilise innovative gradual and permanent grey-reducing technology’. Apparently Control GX incorporates a ‘blend of air-activated hair dye molecules that deposited inside the hair every time you shampoo’. It all sounds good, but only time will tell.
Results are said to vary on blonde or red hair and if you’re planning on giving Control GX a go, make sure you do the 48hr allergy test before hand. Rub a SMALL amount in between your inside elbow and wait to see if there is a reacition. Don’t do what I did and rub quite a bit on your skin. You’ll wake up with two brown streaky stains on your skin that are a right pain to wash off.
Now if only I had read the instructions!!
