Want to Look Your Youngest? Try Gray-Reversing Shampoo! Here’s Our Top 5!

Unfortunately, most men’s hair will grow gray over the years. For some of us, it happens a lot earlier than others. Don’t get me wrong; there’s nothing wrong with a silver fox in his late 70s. That’s cool as hell. But I’m 32 and have a salt and pepper mane (more salt than pepper these days).

Whether you’re in your twenties or seventies, if you don’t like your grays, there’s not much you can do besides coloring them. Or is there?

How about you treat yourself to a gray-reversing shampoo?

Are there natural ways to reverse your gray hair without dying it?

It turns out there are! Recently more brands are releasing shampoos that can help you reverse signs of gray hairs without the need to color it up.

There’s plenty of science showing us WHY our hair grays, and now that we know we can reverse grays, we can find the perfect products to make it happen. But how do you know which ones work and which are duds? Well, we’re here to help!

Let's get started...

Mane’s Gray Reverse Bar focuses on the natural causes of gray hair and stops them in their tracks. Mane says they use a “science-backed formula that stimulates melanocytes, the cells which determine color vibrancy in follicles, to return individual hair strands to their original color.” We learned about Mane when we saw their limited Early Black Friday Promo where you can get 1 FREE when you buy 2 bars. This is your opportunity to stock up on Gray Reverse Bar at the lowest prices. Since then, they’ve sold out of the Gray Reverse Bar every other week. The best part? It works on the head, beard, and even eyebrows. This is a must-buy!

By far, Mane’s Gray Reverse Bar is the most effective shampoo for reversing gray hair.

Arey refers to their products as the “Wrinkle creams of hair products”. Clever. Their fancy bottling and list of products certainly give it a leg up for top spot. However, the shampoo itself didn’t deliver as strong results as we liked. It was effective, but Mane had them beat. Price-wise, it’s on the spendier side, but not the worst. We do like that Arey offers multiple products all aimed to help you with aging, brittle hair.

Prose has been receiving a lot of buzz lately for offering custom beauty products to fit your exact needs. Your 10 minute quiz asks you everything from how often you wash your hair to your diet to the percentage of gray hair on your head. Based on your answers, they make a custom shampoo just for you. A great concept, unfortunately there’s not a big focus on reversing gray hair. While they do provide ingredients to help reverse gray hair, it’s not their main goal.

Reminex is an affordable option, however not the most effective. We saw mixed results with the few reviewers that used it. However, we think if you need something slightly more affordable, it may be a good option. That said, Mane’s free gift puts it at a better price with better results. We’d recommend starting with Mane.

Sometimes you can’t go wrong with a classic. Just For Men has been around for many years helping men color their hair. Although the product was nice, its a little too chemical heavy, and feels like you’re coloring your hair. Reviews recommend to use gloves because it can stain your hands. Yikes!


While we believe we recommended some great shampoos to help you and all dads reverse gray hairs, we believe Mane’s Gray Reversing Bundle is the absolute best option. We wanted to talk further with our investigative reporter Mark Herring who helped create the rankings list and how he discovered the greatness that is Mane.

Personally, I’m a bit of an anti-product guy. Bar of soap in the shower and some toothpaste. My girlfriend only recently pushed moisturizer on me, haha. It’s not that I don’t believe in any of the stuff (hell, I research and write about it all the time). I just never thought I needed most of it. My skin is fairly clear and never had many issues with acne or anything like that. That said, the one thing that always bothered me was my gray head of hair. It runs in my family, my dad, brother, and cousins were all gray by their 30s, so I figured it was my turn, too. 

So when I was put on assignment to find some amazing hair growth products, I was happy to test some things out. Unfortunately, not a lot made the cut. Too many products felt, smelled, and contained strong chemicals that felt more like medicine than shampoo. And worse, they didn’t really work that well. 

I sort’ve gave up.

But then it seemed my best friend, who I trust with my life, had dyed his hair. I asked what he was using and he said it was all natural.

I couldn’t believe it and insisted he dyed it. That’s when he shot out of his chair and grabbed the Mane’s Gray Reverse Bar. He said he tried a few things but that Mane was the only brand that he felt actually delivered. I was skeptical, but when he showed me a photo from like 2 months ago, I was blown away. His hair has turned several shades darker, plus his natural brown hairs were more visible.

I asked him to let me borrow his Reverse Gray Bar, but instead he told me to buy my own like a real adult LOL. I was delighted to see Mane was offering a 50% OFF Early Black Friday Promo. So I ordered two bars immediately.


I received the package two days later and used as instructed. Wet the bar and rub the lather into your hair. Pretty simple. 

Of course, I looked into the mirror and expected immediate results, but with products like these you got to use them everyday for about three weeks before you notice anything. In the meantime, I wanted to know what made Mane’s Reverse Gray Bar do what it did.

It’s all about what CAUSES gray hair. Mane says there’s two reasons,

1. Pigment cells in your hair called melanocytes decrease production with age, resulting in color leaving your hair

2. Stress releases the chemical norepinephrine into the follicle which rapidly kills melanocytes, ending pigment production

So Mane aims to protect the melanocytes to help stimulare pigment production. So even if you’re stressed, you’ll still be blessed with a good head of hair. And isn’t that in of itself a great relief?


Mane uses three special ingredients that help protect melanocytes and stimulate pigment production:

Panax Ginseng Root Extract

This is your all-around bad ass ingredient to help make your hair stronger and healthier with a mix of anti-oxidants and peptides. It also is the main force in protecting your melanocytes.

Bamboo Charcoal

Charcoal is amazing at pulling toxins and harmful free radicals from your hair, leaving only the healthiest follicle possible. 

Shea Butter

Extremely helpful in moisturizing and hydrating your hair for the healthiest possible look.

Did It Finally Work?

So, finally, after 4 weeks, I decided to check if I could see results… and wow! The areas of my hair that were previously gray became darker and even started to return to my original hair color! Even better,  my hair felt fuller and stronger than it had in years. I was simply amazed at how good it looked and felt.

I was officially converted into a Reverse Gray Bar believer, and I hope you will, too!
