    Why is Revita bad?

    If you look at its ingredients:
    http://www.amazon.com/DS-Laboratories-R ... 002UD52WQ/

    ^ they put in pretty much EVERY POSSIBLE thing that helps with hair growth INCLUDING keto 1%.
    At the very least, it should be better than plain nizoral.

    Why isn't it part of the big three? And why does everyone here use Revivogen and other crap that only makes your hair APPEAR better/thicker without treating the main problem...

    Is it because of the rumors that DS labs are diluting ingredients in the shampoo?

    Re: Why is Revita bad?

    Because none of those things actually do anything.

    And it's way more expensive than standard Nizoral shampoo.



    I don't think 'everyone here uses Revivogen', but I agree that if they are they should probably stop wasting their cash.

    I don't have much faith in Nizoral either btw, I only use it cos it's cheap and a harmless addition to the big 2.

    really?? keto, copper peptides, MSM, Apple Polyphenol, taurine, emu oil, biotin. I could give you a study for each of those ingredients.

    I'm sure it does 100x more good than your average sodium acid crap shampoo.
    Question is, why did this shampoo did not catch up with the hair loss community

    revita - 180 ml - $21
    nizoral - 100 ml - $20

    Re: Why is Revita bad?

    Yeah Nizoral is much cheaper in the UK, 7 for 100ml from Amazon, and it's about the same price from Boots which is a chemist they have on every high-street here.

    Revita is 3 times more expensive (21), admittedly for more (180ml) but as you're 'supposed' to use Revita every day, Nizoral will last far longer and is therefore loads cheaper.

    I'm sure it does 100x more good than your average sodium acid crap shampoo.
    100 times more than nothing yes, still nothing

    As for studies, I don't believe there's a convincing study on any of those ingredients in AGA sufferers, especially delivered in a shampoo form for that matter, but I'd love to be proven wrong

    are you talking about 2% nizoral?

    so it's all because of money? $20/month is nothing and I'm sure you can rotate between nizoral 2% and revita if you're really cheap.

    lol

    no, pick any ingredient from revita and google it: "[ingredient] hair loss".
    All of those ingredients have SOME effect on your hair so I'm sure it adds up to something...


    If this is not the best shampoo for hair loss, then what shampoo is?

    Heh, I'm not going to waste my time on that. I've done the whole googling for treatments thing and you can find a weak related study for just about anything.

    If you're so sure then it should be easy for you to find me a convincing study for one of those ingredients that shows that it can halt hairloss or regrow hair for AGA sufferers.

    That's probably impossible to answer because there's no evidence any of them really do anything (even Nizoral only has ~2 really tenuous studies on it). In the grand scheme of things shampoos are going to do pretty much nothing to stop hairloss.

    If I believed Revita did anything I would spend the cash. I'm just suggesting why it isn't in everyone's 'Big 3'. Most people are not going to be willing to shell out that much for a shampoo which isn't likely to bring them any benefit.

    They are just a shady company IMO. You always hear about the formulas being changed for the worse. At the end of the day a shampoo wont save your hair if your losing it so why spend a decent amount of money buying Revita shampoo. Just my 2 cents

    Re: Why is Revita bad?

    where does it say that's it's a 2%?

    Yes, shampoo alone is too weak against MPB but if you're already on propecia it might help with the regrowth process...

    yes, but if you're on propecia, your hair loss is already halted for another 5+ years(average). The next step is regrowth, which I think is what this shampoo could help with

    Re: Why is Revita bad?

    A statement from DS Labs regarding claims that they're diluting ingredients:


    Hi,

    Thank you for your interest in DS Laboratories' products.

    We most certainly are not diluting ingredients in any of our shampoos. If you are referring to the latest product updates made to Revita shampoo, we are always looking for ways to improve our products and their effectiveness, so we update the formulas whenever we find a way to make them better.

    We do try, as much as possible, to accommodate our customers' likes and dislikes and our R&D takes any and all feedback into close consideration. Some of our customers do prefer the latest formulation to previous ones. As mentioned above, every update is made with improved effectiveness in mind and is extensively researched before incorporation into our products.

    Please let us know if we may be of further assistance.

    Regards,
