DS Laboratories Revita Hair Stimulating Shampoo & Conditioner Review, Pictures

It’s been a while since I last reviewed hair care products, but it’s been even longer since I was this excited to share my thoughts about them. DS Laboratories is not a brand I was familiar with before, and although they’re sold at many big online retailers, I don’t think I’ve ever noticed their products. A big mistake on my part, because I recently got an opportunity to try out Revita shampoo and conditioner, and they seriously transformed my hair from dry and lifeless to smooth, shiny and much more voluminous.

DS Laboratories is on a mission to change radically the personal-care landscape by developing technologies that make a meaningful difference in the lives of their customers. DS Laboratories is a technology company aggressively focused on innovation that lives by the following principles:

  • Every product that is launched must deliver certain features and benefits that are not available from any competitor. If a product does not meet these criteria, then it is simply abandoned. DS Laboratories will not manufacture a mere variation of something else just to fill up shelf space.
  • All products are rigorously tested to verify all claims through double-blind clinical studies. If a compound or ingredient has not been verified through such means, then it will not be used in any products. DS Laboratories is one of the very few cosmetic companies that conducts its own in-house double-blind clinical testing with human volunteers.
  • Innovation will always come before economics. DS Laboratories’ own chemists work on a cost-is-no-object basis to push the envelope of what is possible in technology.
  • The company’s primary goal is to create technologies and solutions that make a meaningful difference in the lives of their customers. Profits are merely a side-effect of this paradigm.

Product (L to R): Revita Hair Growth Shampoo, Revita.Cor Hair Growth Stimulating Conditioner

Each tube is sealed tight to prevent leaks.

The products come in tall round bottles, which are securely sealed to prevent accidental leaks and contamination until the product reaches the consumer. You have no idea how many times I received leaked shampoo bottles in the mail, so this kind of packaging was very refreshing.

The application of both of these products is actually not intuitive at all. The shampoo has to be used in two steps: first step is massaging it into your wet scalp gently and leaving it on for two minutes; then repeat and leave it on for five minutes. For optimal results the shampoo has to be used at least five times a week. Unlike normal conditioners aimed to moisturize [dead] hair, Revita.Cor has to be massaged directly into the scalp to promote future growth of healthier strands. For best results this conditioner has to be used daily.

I tested Revita Hair Growth Shampoo + Revita.Cor Hair Growth Stimulating Conditioner system for five weeks, and there were two clear “stages” that I experienced during that period. For the first week I honestly didn’t notice any mindblowing results, which made me think that the product wasn’t really working that well for me. However, after 10-11 days it hit me that my dry scalp didn’t itch anymore, and mild flaking that I usually experience during Winter months has completely disappeared. After two weeks my hair started falling out, not all of it at once or anything dramatic like that, but fairly big tufts, and that got me very scared. I decided to read the booklet included in the box, and sure enough, DS Laboratories explained it all! The fallout I was experiencing was due to hair follicles being stimulated by Shampoo & Conditioner’s active ingredients, so it was my own body shedding all the dead weight because it was ready to start growing new healthy hair. After three weeks the shedding stopped, and I was actually experiencing way less fallout than I normally did before, like whatever strands were left became stronger and more resilient to damage. After five weeks, my hair looks silky smooth, less frizzy, and the strands just feel thicker and less coarse than before, even though I lost some volume during the “shedding week”.

In Before and After pictures you can see the transformation, and I have to tell you that I actually didn’t color my hair between taking these shots. It just looks different now because the texture of my hair has changed: it’s now smoother, shinier and more reflective than before. DS Laboratories sent me another system to try, but I’m so in love with this one, I’m afraid to get off of it now because I want my hair to stay in this condition forever 🙂

Before and After 5 Weeks

Those pictures above sum up my experience with Revita.Cor Hair Growth Stimulating Conditioner & Revita Hair Growth Shampoo pretty well. It was scary to see my hair fall out after two weeks of use, but once that stage was over, I felt almost liberated from all that dead weight, and welcomed the healthy, shiny strands.
