I started taking Borage Oil to help my hair grow back where it had receded, but discovered it also changed my hair from grey back to my original brown. In looking back at old photos, I was much grey-er before. It has not taken away all the grey but my hair is much healthier and fuller than before. Although my hair did not all grow back, there is some new hair growth and it has prevented me from losing more hair.
