Halacha - lo silbash
Submitted by marvin  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: can I take a cream that will get rid of white hair ?(its not a dye,it just gives you melanin which is a loss of vitamin that comes with age) Thanxs in advance.
Answer:

According to many Poskim there is an issur d'oraisa for a man to dye white hairs. Since I am not aware of any source or conclusive reason to differentiate between dye and melanin, I don't see any grounds to be lenient. If the melanin would keep black hairs from turning grey, it seems that it should be permitted.
