First of all, in spite of my name I am not a doctor.
I wanted to share my Revivogen experience with folks here for two reasons. First, I think this may help people who are in a similar situation. Second, I want Revivogen to thrive so that their product will be available for some time to come. I am not associated with Revivogen in any way but if I continue to see good results I certainly benefit if they continue to thrive as a company. Hopefully this review will help them continue to thrive.
About 5 months ago I began noticing a thinning at the front of my hairline that was noticeable to me. I bet that my friends hadn't even noticed but it is possible that they did. I have very curly, course brown hair so it's hard to notice changes in my hair. I read all over message boards like this one on Propecia and Rogaine and others, and was on the fence about what I wanted to do.
Somehow I came across Revivogen, read more about it and decided to give it a try. Because the scalp therapy product was expensive I just started with the Shampoo and Conditioner. I didn't notice any results with this product on its own except that the conditioner IS a thickening product so it made my hair even more course which I didn't really like. So after a few weeks of the shampoo I decided to try the scalp therapy but was very uneasy about it.
No sooner had I ordered the product I started searching for reviews on different message boards and saw only ones describing this product as snake oil. I felt like a sucker. When it arrived I almost didn't want to use it but decided it was worth a try since it cost me around $100.
I stuck with it for a few weeks and began noticing results in less than a month... probably more like a few weeks actually. I didn't really believe it at first but decided to stick with it. I'm not sure where I register on the Norwood scale, but I think I was just beginning to lose overall thickness on top rather than experiencing a receeding hairline. I had lost my temple areas 10 years ago (when I was 20) but otherwise had maintained my hairline since then.
So now three months later my hairline remains the same (still have the somewhat receded temple area) but it is all much thicker. 4-5 months ago I hated looking in the mirror, especially ones with weird lighting and I would mess with the front of my hair to make it look thicker. Now I hardly think of it.
My current regiment is Reviovogen shampoo daily, Nizoral 2-3 times a week, Revivogen scalp therapy nightly, a vitamin a day, and regular exercise. My results could be related to the Nizoral alone for all I know but I am not changing my regimen as long as things are on the up and up. Revivogen is not the most pleasant thing to put on your head I guess, but it's not torture either. It takes less than 5 minutes and kind of smells like Play-Dough? It definitely requires that you shower the next morning because your hair will be greasy as hell.
It seems to me, from the reviews I've read and from my own experience, that Revivogen is best for maintaining hair and hair thickness, rather than for re-growing hair. However I have read reviews where people have re-grown hair. I've only been on this for 3 months but I am very optimistic for the future. I will try to check back in case anyone has questions or comments. Best of luck....
