Revita Shampoo: Product Review
Table of contents
Hair loss is a problem faced by millions of people, men, and women around the world. So if you’ve ever felt frustrated by your hair falling off like autumn leaves or the bald patches staring back at you in the mirror, I’ll like you to know that you’re not alone. The beauty industry thrives on this problem and over time there have been several solutions offered in the form of hair products, diet supplements, and now even surgery. But the former is my focus here. As with all things beauty related, it can be pretty difficult to figure out what works and what is junk before trying it out. Manufacturers have gotten smarter but not necessarily honest with their advertising. So you’ll probably agree with me that some of the products you’ve tried didn’t even deserve the space on your vanity table, how much more the precious money spent on them.
So before you buy the next ‘’ magic formula’’, it’ll be great to have enough details to help you make an informed decision on whether that product is good for you right? Exactly. To help you, I am going to review one of such products, The Revita Hair Stimulating Shampoo. Manufactured by DS labs, The Revita Hair Stimulating Shampoo is one of the most popular hair loss treatments available today. It was created to not only stimulate growth and increase length but also to improve volume, and density and give you all-around results.
What the manufacturers say
According to their website, ‘’Revita’ hair-stimulating shampoo delivers powerful support for men and women concerned about hair loss, thinning hair, and androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness or female pattern baldness). Revita shampoo is formulated to strengthen hair, boost density, and improve appearance. In studies, the hair-stimulation compounds in Revita shampoo are associated with faster hair growth and new hair regrowth after episodes of hair loss. Key compounds include dihydrotestosterone blockers (DHT blockers) ketoconazole and caffeine, as well as biotin, essential for hair growth’’.
What is Androgenic Alopecia? Androgenic Alopecia is a form of hair loss that occurs in both genders. In men, the hair is lost in a defined pattern, starting above the temples and receding to form a characteristic ‘’M’’ shape with time. Androgenic alopecia in men has been associated with several health conditions like diabetes, hypertension, prostate cancer, and heart diseases. It often progresses into complete baldness. For women, the pattern of hair loss is slightly different. The hairline does not recede, it just thins out in random areas all over the head. In women, this form of hair loss is often associated with hormonal imbalance and it rarely progresses to total baldness.
This is the comprehensive list of ingredients but I’m going to discuss the key ingredients individually.
Aqua/water/eau, ketoconazole, sodium lauryl sulfoacetate, disodium laureth sulfosuccinate, sodium lauroyl sarcosinate, cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine, cocamidopropylamine oxide, tetrasodium edta, sodium cocoyl isethionate, peg-150 distearate, di-ppg-2 myreth-10 adipate, cocamide mea, glycol distearate, caffeine, polysorbate 20, citric acid, polyquaternium-10, cinnamidopropyltrimonium chloride, emu oil/huile d’émeu/dromiceius, polyquaternium-70, amodimethicone, c11-15 pareth-7, laureth-9, trideceth-12, glycerin, hydrolyzed soy protein, hydrolyzed wheat protein, wheat amino acids, ethylbisiminomethylguaiacol manganese chloride, copper tripeptide-1, hydrolyzed proanthocyanidin, panax ginseng root extract, arginine, acetyl tyrosine, arctium majus root extract, polyquaternium-11, peg-12 dimethicone, biotin, calcium pantothenate, zinc gluconate, niacinamide, ornithine hcl, citrulline, glucosamine hcl, alcohol denat., panthenyl ethyl ether, inositol, milk protein/ lactis proteinum, lactose, acetyl cysteine, acetyl methionine, sodium citrate, taurine, dimethyl sulfone, methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, magnesium chloride, magnesium nitrate, aspalathus linearis extract, fragrance (parfum), benzyl benzoate, benzyl cinnamate, citronellol, hexyl cinnamal, linalool , butylphenyl methylpropional , red 4 (ci 14700), yellow 6 (ci 15985)
Ketoconazole appears high up in the ingredient list and this implies that there’s a high volume of it in the product. It is an anti-fungal agent which is also effective as a hair growth stimulant. It controls the over-production of testosterone which could suppress hair growth. It also reduces irritation on the scalp and regulates the production of sebum.
Ginseng root extract
This ingredient is included in many hair loss products as research has shown that it’s beneficial for the growth of hair follicles because it stimulates the scalp.
Not at all surprising that this is on the list because it’s one of the most popular hair growth ingredients. It is a water-soluble vitamin which is also known as vitamin H. It plays an important role in the health of your hair by improving its keratin structure and Biotin deficiency can contribute to hair loss. It’s included in hair products but it’s also available to be ingested in the form of supplements.
So apparently, our nerves aren’t the only thing that coffee wakes up. Research has shown that caffeine can help promote hair growth in the initial stages. It works by targeting and suppressing the hormone ‘DHT’ which is responsible for hair loss in most people. It does this by making your hair cells produce more adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a form of energy essential for a healthy scalp and hair.
Massaging products with caffeine into the scalp will increase blood circulation which will stimulate growth and result in healthier hair follicles.
You probably didn’t know that you could get much more than a delayed snooze from your morning coffee but thankfully, I’ve spilled the beans! See what I did there?
Emu oil is a famed miracle oil gotten from the fat of a bird from which its name is derived. This flightless bird is native to Australia but due to its benefits, is now being bred in other countries around the world.
Here’s how it helps hair growth:
- It is rich in essential fatty acids which penetrate deep into the scalp and promote the growth of healthy hair follicles.
- It has anti-inflammatory properties
- It is non-comedogenic meaning it will not clog your pores
- Pure and processed emu oil can help with bacterial organisms and fight fungus or infections which could hinder hair growth.
L-Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid involved in many important functions of the body. It is beneficial for hair growth because it improves blood circulation to the hair follicles. Also, if you color your hair often, Arginine could help prevent it from chemical damage as studies have shown that it prevents the harmful effects of hydrogen peroxide (found in hair dyes) on the hair. Arginine is found in several popular hair supplements like Hairfinity but topical applications boost the regeneration of your hair follicles and keep your scalp healthy.
Other key Ingredients
Carnitine is a nutrient made from amino acids from the kidneys and liver. It works in the form of ATP, stimulating hair growth and it’s a bioactive ingredient. Procyanidins induce the anagen phase of hair growth and improve the health of your hair cells. Studies have shown that it is an effective treatment for hair loss and it could stop balding in men. It also contains Copper peptides that reverse the degenerative process involving the hair and skin. This is great if you experience hair loss because of age. And MSM is a nutritious ingredient that promotes scalp health. Revita Shampoo is a powerhouse product chucked full of active ingredients to fight hair loss and boost growth but does it live up to its claims? Let’s take a look at some of the Revita shampoo reviews.
- On Costco, Users awarded Revita Shampoo a rating of four out of five stars, based on 472 reviews.
- On Amazon, Users awarded Revita Shampoo a rating of four out of five stars, based on 472 reviews.
- On Tony Shamas Hair & Laser, it got a sterling five-star rating from 396 reviews.
- On hair growth specialist, it was rated 4.8 out of 5 stars.
Revita Shampoo Before & After Pictures
In general, most users reported that Revita shampoo stopped their hair loss in its tracks. They also recorded not just fast hair growth in terms of length but also increased thickness and density. With the ratings, It seems that DS labs’ Revita Shampoo is the miracle product capable of turning you into Rapunzel. But before you let down your long hair, here’s some more information you should have:
Possible side effects
This product is considered safe with no side effects. However, from the Revita shampoo reviews, few people have reported that they experienced shedding during and after use. I would also advise that you take a good look at the ingredient list and steer clear if it contains anything you’re allergic to.
Pros of using this product
- Lathers quickly so little product is needed
- Does not contain SLS. This is commendable considering how well it supposedly lathers.
- Rinses off easily
- Stops hair from falling off
- Quick results with consistent use
- Hair grows back on bald spots
- Hair grows not just longer, but also thicker and fuller than before.
Cons of using this product
- It’s expensive
- Needs to be used daily so if you can’t commit to washing your hair that often, it might not be the right product for you.
- All that frequent washing could dry out your hair and cause even more loss.
How To Use It
Apply a small amount to your damp hair and scalp and massage gently. Leave for 2 minutes before rinsing off. Repeat and leave for 5 minutes then rinse off thoroughly. This shampoo rinses off without residue whilst still leaving your hair with a nice citrusy fragrance.
How Often Should It Be Used?
The manufacturers recommend using it twice daily for five days. Yes, that’s a lot of washing but all the wonderful active ingredients it contains need to come in contact with your hair and scalp a lot for it to be effective. But like I said earlier, all that washing could strip your hair. This can be prevented if you immediately follow up with a conditioner. And it might be a good idea to use the Revita hair-stimulating conditioner.
Revita Hair Conditoner
According to the manufacturers, ‘’ Revita® Hair Stimulating Conditioner is formulated to improve texture, providing silky, tangle-free hair with increased body and shine. A revolutionary dual-purpose hair stimulating + rejuvenating conditioner based on cutting-edge biotech research in hair science. For anyone who wants better, stronger, thicker-looking hair. With over 13 active ingredients that are encapsulated within Nanosomes, hydrophobic, bio-adhesive, and microspheres, this next-generation delivery system adheres to the scalp and hair, keeping the formula working long after the hair has been rinsed.’’
A Premium conditioning product
A quick look at the ingredient list reveals that this conditioner also has Ginseng root extract, caffeine, arginine, and biotin which are some of the powerful ingredients I discussed earlier contained in the Revita shampoo. It also contains amino acids, botanical extracts, and shea butter (an ingredient I love because of its strong moisturizing ability). The advanced bio-adhesive properties in this product ensure that key ingredients remain on the scalp and hair for more than 12 hours after rinsing. All of this puts this conditioner way above regular products in terms of the benefits it offers. So for best results, I’ll recommend that you use both products.
Price & where to purchase
You can purchase this product from leading beauty supply stores.
Target Customers: Who’s it for?
- Men and women concerned about or experiencing hair loss
- Men and women in any stage of baldness or thinning hair
- Transplant patients protecting hair regrowth
Revita shampoo works for people of all races and it’s suitable for all hair types. So whether your hair is straight, curly, relaxed, or natural, you can expect wonderful results.
While there are lots of products and treatments available for hair loss in the market, there are few with a success rate as high as this one. And with the many wonderful and powerful ingredients it contains, it’s not hard to see why. So if you’re looking for a product to combat hair loss whether minor or major, I recommend you give the Revita shampoo a try. It’s an effective product which is safe with little to no side effects and if you’re already going bald, you’ve got nothing to lose, literally. It might be pricey, but it costs way less than surgery.
