RevivHair Max gets an upgrade:
RevivHair Max Hair Stimulating Serum now encapsulates its existing primary hair actives Redensyl, Capixyl, and Procapil, in a phospholipid microsphere, which "containerizes" it.
Such microsphere containers form a transfer system that enhances penetration, as they transfer the actives to the capillary bulbs.
With such a liposome we can enhance the delivery of actives to maximize their ability to effectively penetrate, boosting their efficacy, strength and bioavailability.
Since such a container also has a timed-release benefit, since it releases its actives over time compared to non-encapsulated actives.
How are our liposomes designed?
These microscopic vesicles consist of an aqueous center with a phospholipid membrane. Phospholipids contain a glycerol bonded to two fatty acids and a phosphate group with a polar head. The fatty acid portion of this biomolecule is hydrophobic and is located toward the outside of the lipid bilayer, and the phosphate group is hydrophilic and faces the aqueous interior.
These phospholipid walls are identical to those that comprise human cell membranes, and are readily compatible with epidermal surface lipids, the skin’s primary moisture barrier.
When a liposome fuses with epidermal lipids, the epidermal lipid structure becomes overloaded with water and out of equilibrium. To restore equilibrium, the water and phospholipid, as well as the loaded actives, are rapidly churned through the top cell layers of the stratum corneum. Enhanced delivery of the active occurs as it is rapidly carried down through the stratum corneum.
Liposomes’ proven delivery system yields a multitude of benefits; enhancing the penetration of actives yielding increased efficacy, offering time release mechanisms, and protecting and delivering otherwise unstable ingredients.
Liposomes are also known to improve the skin barrier function and decrease transepidermal water loss (TEWL) shortly after application. In addition, phospholipids contain a high content of phosphatidylcholine which has excellent moisturizing properties.
We have decided to keep RevivHair Max at the same cost for now, despite its considerable COGS (Cost of Goods Sold). Its price has not changed over multiple upgrades. We know times can be tough, and we want to keep Max affordable for our diverse customer base.
For the most part, you won't notice a difference compared to the prior RevivHair Max formulation. It's simply slightly more cloudy (but not particularly perceptible), and slightly thicker.

Beauty Blogger Kerry Smith evaluates RevivHair REV:
This is my latest find in Self improvement Beauty products.
It is a serum used directly on the scalp with wet or dry hair. It is meant to be used 3 times day or so. I have been using it for about 6 weeks. I have been doing it three times pr day pretty faithfully but I will admit there were definitely a few sessions that I skipped. I always used it after the shower and right before bed, before putting on my silk sleeping hat. I tried most days to use some shortly after lunch, but it was occasionally right before dinner. i really just tried to make sure I was getting in three times for more effectiveness.
The serum itself has no aroma,.. it is pretty much odorless. It is a clearish like oil type serum substance, but it does not lave my hair greasy or weighed down. I actually think the main ingredient may be water since it is listed first. Which is probably why it is still light on my hair.
So I do not wear hair ties often because they tend to rip out a bunch of my hair. I did a tie test, and it was about two weeks of use from the first before test picture, to the second after test picture. You can see there was a lot more fallout breakage before I started using the RevivHair REV Serum.
SO here are some pics of my hairline before one wet one dry. You can see here there is no new growth, only sparce and thinning hair. So Sad!

SO after testing this out for a month and a half or so, I am pretty happy with the results. My hairline and scalp are happy too! I did not experience any discomfort or itching at all while I was using this. If you re struggling with hair strength, breakage, loss or lack of luster, you should try this for yourself! Oh and as a bonus, it also helps to reverse grey hair! How is that for a nice bonus.

I know platinum hair is the rage right now, but I will take my natural dark brown over salt and pepper hair every single day of the week!!

Full review here:
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!

Renowned beauty blogger evaluates RevivHair Stimulating Serum with Redensyl, Peptides, Growth Factors, and Stem Cells:
"After about three weeks, I started noticing where my hair was the thinnest, that it was starting to get fuzzy and the hair was starting to grow again. After the fourth week, there was a big difference in the fact that the "peach fuzz" regrowth turned into actual hair that is now covering those bald spots I had! I can now wear my hair up without embarrassment and I owe that all to RevivSerums! They have an amazing product that works! "
