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.

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!!

Addressing greying hair isn't just a vanity issue; it's a scalp and skin health issue too.
Premature greying of the hair is a condition known as canities; the diminishing of pigment in hair producing a range of colors from normal to white that is perceived as gray.
It is a complex multi-factorial process mainly considered to be an interplay of nutritional, genetic and environmental factors. Nutritional deficiencies like vitamin B12 deficiency, severe iron deficiency, chronic protein loss, copper deficiency are often found associated with premature greying of hairs. Other factors that have been incriminated are low serum ferritin, and low serum calcium and vitamin D3 levels.
Smoking is another factor that is considered to be related to premature greying of hair. Smoking results in generation of huge amount of reactive oxygen species leading to increased oxidative stress culminating into damage to melanin producing cells, melanocytes. Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays is considered to initiate similar processes in hair follicles resulting in premature greying of hair.
It turns out that a key factor in hair color loss happens to be the buildup of hydrogen peroxide in the scalp and hair follicles. As we age, our bodies become less able to neutralize that hydrogen peroxide, which interferes with an enzyme that is responsible for producing the pigment in hair. The graying begins when the synthesis of melanin (the natural pigment that gives hair its color) is disrupted.
Another recent study in Nature Medicine suggests that sun damage may very well speed up the graying of hair. The study found that when UV exposure damaged skin, melanin-producing stem cells migrated upward to the skin to produce protective pigment (a tan) but abandoned their position in the hair follicle.
While there are many other factors that can contribute to graying hair (genetics, ethnicity, stress etc.), these studies suggest there are steps you can take to slow down or minimize graying hair:
The revolutionary ingredients, like Greyverse and Darkenyl, found in our RevivHair REV Stimulating Serum may help prevent hydrogen peroxide buildup and target tyrosinase to help prevent the loss of hair color and the appearance of darker hair, naturally without dyes or pigments. Another included ingredients (also mentioned in the study) may help: Methionine Sulfoxide Reductase.
Additionally, wearing a hat or applying a UV protection product for the hair (more specifically, the scalp) whenever you're outside, may help as well. Wearing a hat to shield UV damage is something we should be doing anyway!
