How was Hairprint invented?

Hairprint was invented by Dr. John Warner, of the Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry in Massachusetts. Dr. Warner is one of the most honored chemists today. In 2014, Dr. Warner was awarded the Perkin Medal, widely acknowledged as the highest honor in American chemistry. Over a period of four years, Dr. Warner perfected a safe, and gentle process that mimics what hair follicles do: infuse hair with its natural pigment.

When Warner first began experimenting, he was trying to find a natural way to color hair. He worked with natural gray hair extensions and from the beginning the hair samples took on different shades, from light brown to jet-black. Unable to achieve a consistent result, he asked his supplier if the hair extensions were from a single donor. They were not, they were comprised of hair from many sources. That is when Warner realized that Hairprint might be restoring the color innate to the donor.

To test his theory, he applied it to his own hair. His hair had gone gray as a young man at Princeton. In eighty minutes, it returned his hair to the same color he had thirty years prior. Hairprint True Color Restorer was born.

When you replenish the hair's innate pigments, it reverses gray hair. John knew this going into his experiments. What he did not expect is how Hairprint transforms the health of the hair, making it stronger, giving it more body and luster.
