SerumScoop: Tips, tricks and news
Being a new mom can be one of the most emotionally rewarding — and challenging — experiences a woman faces. And while you may have anticipated your body to go through a whirlwind of changes, you may not have expected your hair to start falling out in clumps.
Also referred to as postpartum hair loss, telogen gravidarum, and telogen effluvium, excessive hair shedding after childbirth (which would occur anywhere between two and four months after giving birth) can affect between 40 and 50 percent of women, according to statistics from the American Pregnancy Association.
“When a woman is pregnant, she has a lot of extra hormones in the body, including estrogen,” says Christine Carlan Greves, a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist in Orlando, Florida. “The estrogen helps protect us from losing our hair. Then when she has the baby, there’s a sudden change in the hormone levels, including a drop in the estrogen. And this shift can cause a response in the body that may affect the hair cycle.”
In fact, Greves adds that breastfeeding can also contribute to hair shedding because it increases prolactin levels (the hormone produced in the pituitary gland that is responsible for breast milk production), which is associated with hair loss as well.

SAN FRANCISCO CA USA, SEPTEMBER 7, 2017 (PRNewswire): RevivSerums.com, a San Francisco-based global leader in cosmetic chemistry innovation, introduces a first-of-its-kind topical product, Maximum Strength RevivHair Stimulating Serum.
This novel serum targets hair loss and the appearance of thinning hair with a unique combination of plant-based actives, peptides, growth factors, and stem cells, and is the first such topical with 5% Redensyl.
“As the first company worldwide to bring a Redensyl product to market, we are delighted to augment our popular and effective hair stimulating serum with a high strength version of this award-winning ingredient,” noted Vance Nesbitt, Reviv Serums' "Director of Lotions and Potions" and principal formulator. "In updating one of our most popular products, we make it even more potent while still maintaining its current price point of $39 (a $79 value) for a limited time.

A new study of the patented molecules in our Redensyl® ingredient confirm its remarkable role in hair stimulation and hairloss prevention.
Redensyl is not the only ingredient that makes RevivHair Max Hair Stimulating Serum so remarkably effective — our novel growth factors, stem cells, and peptides combine to make it a powerhouse. But Redensyl is undoubtedly a big hero in our hero serum.
Excerpts from the study:
Results: Clinical Studies
It is well-known that the growth of scalp hair is a cyclical process, made up of successive phases of growth (anagen) and rest (telogen).11, 20 In a non-balding scalp, more than 90% of scalp hair is in an anagen phase.12
However, with AGA [Androgenic Alopecia], the progressive shortening of the anagen phase, as well as an increase in the duration of the lag phase (i.e., the interval between the shedding of a telogen hair and the emergence of a replacement anagen hair), across successive hair cycles, progressively decreases the percentage of hair follicles in the anagen phase. For men with male pattern hair loss, only 60% to 80% of total hairs are in anagen phase. This shortening of the anagen phase leads to progressive miniaturization of hair follicles, which contributes to a decrease of visible hair over affected areas of the scalp.13
In the present clinical study, the authors demonstrated that treatment with DEGZ [Redensyl] 3% for three months daily efficiently treats androgenetic alopecia by increasing the percentage of hair in the anagen phase (by about +9%) and decreasing the percentage of hair in telogen phase (by about -17%) (see Table 1). In this study, an insignificant placebo effect also was observed, likely due to the mechanical activation of microcirculation, with almost no more evolution after one month.
None of the results obtained with the placebo were statistically significant. However, 3% DEGZ increased the density ratio of hair in the anagen phase to hair in the telogen phase. After three months, the ratio reached 2.37 (+29%) while the placebo showed no evolution after one month (see Table 2). Furthermore, this hair density increase observed after three months of treatment was confirmed by the scalp’s macrophotography (see Figure 6).
At the end of the study, volunteers using the test DEGZ formula judged their hair as stronger and thicker (data not shown). These benefits are likely provided by the glycine and zinc in the test blend. Glycine is an essential component for the hair shaft structure that directly enters hair’s composition of keratin-associated protein.14 Zinc reinforces hair shaft structure and is essential for cystin incorporation into keratin.15
DHQG and EGCG2 are two glucosylated derivatives of native dihydroquercetin and epigallocatechin gallate. These two polyphenols were previously shown to have different properties for hair care.7, 16
The present studies demonstrate that when these two molecules are used alone or in combination, beneficial properties are observed; including HFDPc metabolism stimulation, ORSc proliferation, beta catenin activation and anti-apoptotic effects on ORSc. In combination with EGCG2, and glycine and zinc, DHQG also induced the growth of AGA hair follicle explants cultured in vitro according to the Philpott model. This study also confirmed the crucial role of EGCG2 in hair growth induction.
Clinical investigations described here show this blend can treat androgenic alopecia by re-launching hair growth pathways and visibly decreasing hair loss within three months by promoting the conversion of hair follicles into the anagen phase via the activation of Wnt/β-catenin pathway, and by limiting the apoptosis of ORSc. Finally, the efficiency of the test blend as an alopecia hair loss treatment was confirmed by a high user satisfaction rate (+71%) during the clinical investigation.

Beauty review site Reflections of Sanity on RevivHair Hair Stimulating Serum with Redensyl, Growth Factors, Peptides, and Stem Cells:
I didn't notice any major hair growth as I personally think I would need more product and time to actually notice that. I did however notice my hair loss has lessened a whole freaking lot! Before using this product, I would lose 30-50 strands of hair each time I washed it (yes, I actually counted) but after more than a week of adding this serum into my hair routine, I lost at most 10-15 strands each wash. The difference is remarkable!
