Revita ®High-performance hair-stimulating shampoo

Check these frequently asked questions on how the product works and what to expect
How can I stave off hair shedding?
Use a high-performance topical treatment like Spectral.DNC-N®, together with a supportive shampoo like Revita, to retain hair longer.
How do I know Revita is safe?
DS Laboratories selects ingredients for hypoallergenic properties as well as effectiveness.
How do procyanidins promote hair growth?
Procyanidin oligomers help different types of cells (epithelial and mesenchymal) work together.
How do researchers measure hair growth?
Four factors are quantified for hair strands: diameter, length, number, and pigmentation.
How does baldness relate to sex drive?
Balding does not imply a change in sex drive. The effects of androgens depend on the location and genetic programming of each hair follicle.
How does dihydrotestosterone (DHT) affect hair loss?
The male hormone DHT may choke hair follicles by interfering with certain enzymes, causing thick, terminal hairs to whither into thin, vellus hairs.
How does DS Laboratories obtain extracts?
DS Laboratories uses gentle mechanical compression, not harsh chemical extraction, to preserve the integrity of its natural compounds.
How does hair receive nutrition?
Methylsulfonylmethane is incorporated into Revita because the sulfur-containing chemical is essential for building hair, skin, and nails.
How does hair thin?
Follicles do not just shut down suddenly. They produce strands progressively thinner and shorter, called miniaturization, during progressive follicular cycles.
How does ketoconazole support hair growth?
Ketoconazole, a powerful antifungal agent, reduces scalp irritation and removes excess sebum while inhibiting the hormones that trigger male pattern baldness.
How does Revita compare to mass-market shampoos?
Unlike regular shampoos, which rely on alkaline detergents that inflame the scalp, Revita contains natural cleansers, plus valuable ingredients to reduce inflammation, fungus, and DHT, and other compounds to boost hydration, nutrition, and protein.
How does Revita help repair free-radical damage?
Antioxidant molecules called spin traps work to detoxify the free radicals that damage cells through age, pollution, and ultraviolet radiation.
How does Revita stimulate follicular energy?
Carnitine tartrate helps to generate adenosine triphosphate, the universal currency of biological energy.
How long does a hair strand grow?
A complete follicular cycle has three phases: anagen (growth), normally a few years; catagen (transitional), just a week or two; and telogen (dormant), normally several weeks.
How many hairs grow at one time?
Normally, 12 follicles are producing hair (anagen phase) for each one that is dormant (telogen phase). With androgenic alopecia, that ratio sinks to maybe 5:1.
What are the key compounds in Revita?
Revita works through multiple pathways, with anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antioxidant, and anti-DHT agents, plus hydration, nutrition, stimulants, and proteins.
What causes hair follicles to quit?
Ironically, the male hormones that trigger scalp hairs to fall out also cause facial, chest, axillary, and pubic hairs to grow in. The difference is the genetic programming of each follicle.
What is a free radical?
The byproduct of natural oxidation, a free radical is a reactive molecule containing an unpaired electron, which damages hair follicles and other cells.
What is an antioxidant?
Antioxidants attract free radicals and effectively trap them. Revita incorporates a spin trap called N-t-butyl-alpha-phenylnitrone.
What is androgenic alopecia?
Commonly called male pattern baldness, androgenic alopecia starts with bitemporal recession of the hairline and thinning of the vertex. Eventually, the two bald patches merge. Female pattern baldness, however, happens as a diffuse thinning over the entire scalp.
What is the role of amino acids in Revita?
Biotin improves the metabolism of scalp oils and expands the hair shaft directly.
What is the role of biotin in Revita?
Amino acids form keratin, the hard fibrous protein that constructs new hairs.
What is the role of caffeine in Revita?
Caffeine stimulates hair follicles like it stimulates nerves.
What is the role of carnitine tartrate in Revita?
Carnitine tartrate helps the body to generate adenosine triphosphate, the currency of biological energy.
What is the role of copper peptides in Revita?
Copper peptides counter many of the degenerative diseases of aging skin and hair.
What is the role of emu oil in Revita?
Emu oil contributes fatty acids to help feed and hydrate the skin.
What is the role of ketoconazole in Revita?
Ketoconazole reduces irritation and excess sebum while inhibiting DHT production.
What is the role of methylsulfonylmethane in Revita?
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) contains sulfur and serves as an antioxidant, disrupting lipid peroxidation.
What is the role of procyanidins in Revita?
Procyanidins promote follicular activity at the hairline.
What is the role of rooibos in Revita?
Rooibos contributes antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
What is the role of spin traps in Revita?
Spin traps detoxify the free radicals that damage cells.
What lifestyle adjustments can slow hair thinning?
In addition to a topical treatment such as Spectral.DNC-N and a therapeutic shampoo such as Revita, have medical conditions treated, eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly to improve circulation and lower stress, use a comb instead of a brush, consider discontinuing birth-control pills, and do not use harsh chemicals such as straight minoxidil.
What is the role of carnitine tartrate in Revita?
Carnitine tartrate helps the body to generate adenosine triphosphate, the currency of biological energy.
What makes hair strong?
Revita delivers amino acids directly to hair follicles because they are building blocks of the protein keratin.
What makes Revita better than other shampoos?
Revita combines numerous highly effective compounds to help preserve hair.
What treatments combine well with Revita?
Revita enhances and reinforces topical treatments like Spectral.DNC-N and those containing minoxidil.
What vitamins contribute to hair health?
Revita incorporates the B vitamin biotin because it plays a major role in the manufacturing of hair.
When does balding begin?
Androgenic hair loss can start at puberty, when hormones increase. Some men go completely bald in five years, although 15 to 25 years is more typical.
When should I begin hair regrowth treatment?
Topical treatments work best in the early stages of baldness, since hair follicles atrophy over time.
Where does hair come from?
Individual strands emerge from hair follicles set deep within the scalp. In each, a dermal papilla transfers nourishment from the blood stream to the root, which grows and makes the strand longer. Sebaceous glands secrete sebum to lubricate hair and skin.
Who is at risk of baldness?
White men suffer androgenic alopecia at a rate four times higher than black men. Eventually, 96 percent will lose significant hair. Many women also suffer thinning, although in a different pattern.
Why do only certain hairs fall out?
The hormone dihydrotestosterone affects a given follicle based on its genetic programming, which is the reason that transplanted hairs continue to grow in their new locations.
Why does Revita contain caffeine?
Clinical studies show that topical application of caffeine stimulates human hair follicles.
Why does Revita contain emu oil?
Rendered from a flightless Australian bird, emu oil contributes essential fatty acids, hydration, nutrition, and stimulation.
Why is African red-bush tea in Revita?
Rooibos, used traditionally as an herbal tea, contributes antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties and now shows potential to aid in the preservation of hair.
Why is hair loss important to men?
Premature baldness diminishes a man's self image, making him feel older and less attractive than his peers.
