It’s time to review Revita Hair Growth Shampoo – a hair product that I really like:
- one of the best formulas (among shampoos)
- several studies behind
- trustworthy producer
But obviously – it all comes with a high price.
So is Revita worth $32 per 7 oz?
Let me give out the reasons why it’s one of my top recommended shampoos.
Note: This review is based on my own experience + research on Revita.
So Let’s Get To The Review
Full Name: Revita High Performance Stimulating Shampoo from DS Laboratories
Sizes: There are 2 (7 or 31.3 oz)
Best Actual Price: Around $32 per bottle (for the 7 oz version)
Cheapest Place To Buy: Definitely Amazon
Designed For: Supporting hair loss issues:
- boosts density and fullness
- promotes and increases growth/thickness
- strengthens and improves density
It’s also a DHT blocker (though not a very strong one, since it only works on the outside).
Plus – it works for both men and women.
My Rating: 9 out of 10 – One of the best shampoos I know
Worth Buying?: Yes, as long as you afford it:
- an excellent product in terms of effect
- as I said, one of my favorite shampoos
However, I recommend a cheaper alternative with a much better effect.
That’s the shampoo I personally use and my results with it are excellent.
What I Liked About It
- Great formula/ingredients
- Product itself has several studies behind (big advantage)
- Works for different causes of hair loss
- Pleasant citrus smell and orange color
- Quite effective in my case (for breakage and strength)
- Many positive reviews online
- Available in several retailers and countries
- Works for both men and women
What I Didn’t Like About It
- For best results, you have to use it 5 times a week
- Also, it needs to be applied twice in every wash
- A bottle runs out pretty fast (if you follow the instructions properly)
- Quite expensive on the long term
- Needs about 2-3 months to start working (like most shampoos)
#1 – Ingredients (9 out of 10)
In terms of formula – Revita is above 90% of the hair growth/loss shampoo I know:
- strong formula overall
- based on many herbal extracts
- most ingredients are natural
Plus – as I already said, this product has 2 clinical evidence behind.
Compared to most products on the market, that’s a real advantage.
Now – I would divide its active ingredients in 2 groups:
- Herbs + Extracts
Other than these – it also contains inactive substances, but those aren’t relevant (in terms of effect).
So let’s take a closer look at each.
1. Herbs + Extracts
Revita contains some pretty useful herbs/natural extracts:
- Procyandin B2 – it’s an antioxidant and promotes hair growth. 
- Caffeine – it’s a strong DHT blocker that fights consequent hair loss. 
- Ornithine – it’s an enzyme that strengthens hair. 
- Ketoconazone – it’s an antifungal with DHT blocking proprieties.
- Taurine – strengthens hair and increases keratin production. 
- Emu Oil – promotes hair growth and improves shedding.
- Rooibos Tea – increases shine and hair growth rate.
Overall – these 6 ingredients look really good.
I personally have never seen them together in another shampoo, which makes Revita unique.
This type of ingredients aren’t that effective when applied topically.
But still – they don’t look bad at all:
- Niacinamide – decreases female hair loss. 
- Copper Peptides – strengthen and stimulate hair health. 
- MSM – promotes hair thickness and density.
- Cysteine – can reverse hair loss and restore normal growth cycle. 
- Biotin – it’s the best vitamin for hair growth and loss.
In my opinion – Revita’s formula looks excellent:
- most ingredients have several studies behind
- varied compounds
- many herbal extracts (which are known to be stronger than other ingredients)
I personally don’t know many shampoos with such a strong formula.
So even though it’s not as effective as a supplement – Revita does look really good.
That’s why it’s a shampoo I would definitely recommend (in terms of ingredients).
#2 – Smell & Texture (10 out of 10)
I’m actually quite a big fan of this shampoo’s consistency.
The fact that it’s different from the rest (at this chapter) makes it even more unique.
I read plenty of reviews on Revita and no customer complained about the smell:
- average intensity
- fragrance is similar to citrus/herbal mix
- scent is rather fresh than sweet
- suitable for both genders
Besides – it’s not the kind of smell you could feel from a long distance.
That’s why I personally really like it.
What makes Revita different is color:
- shampoo has a dark orange shade
- lathers pretty well
- you don’t need a larger quantity than in other shampoo
So besides its nice smell – it also has an original color and nice consistency.
#3 – How To Use It (8 out of 10)
The shampoo offers great instructions as to how you should use it.
Plus – the directions are pretty straight forward and there are clear recommendations:
- You should only apply it on wet hair (as with any other shampoo).
- Apply the product and massage with your fingers.
- After it lathers, let it sit for 2-3 minutes.
- Rinse normally.
- Apply it a second time.
- This time, you should let it sit for 3-5 minutes, then rinse.
Basically – unlike other shampoos, it’s recommended to apply it twice.
This could be a bit uncomfortable, for 2 reasons:
- takes a longer time to wash your hair
- you need a larger quantity of shampoo
Therefore – one bottle will run out faster than other shampoos.
Besides, the label recommends using it 5 times a week (for best results).
To be honest – that’s extremely uncomfortable, as few people wash their hair 5 times a week.
Still – even if you use it twice a week, you should still see results (but probably slower).
#4 – My Results (8 out of 10)
My personal results with this shampoo are not very relevant (in terms of effectiveness).
Here’s what I mean.
1. My Background
First of all – I only started using Revita’s product about 4 months ago.
At that point, I had solved my hair loss problems long time ago.
That’s why I said my results with it won’t be very relevant:
- I used to deal with a massive hair loss in the past
- very few products worked well enough for me
- but I managed to solve the problem using a $25 supplement
Since then – I had been using that supplement almost constantly.
In order to test Revita’s shampoo, I stopped it about 2 months before.
But still – my hair wasn’t falling out too much.
That’s why it’s hard to tell if Revita really worked for me.
2. How It Worked
Well – I can’t tell you the results in terms of hair loss (since I did not have that).
But I will try to point out the changes I did notice while using Revita.
Note: I used both the shampoo and conditioner.
- My hair felt a lot smoother after about 2 washes.
- In about 1 month, I noticed it also seemed stronger.
- I had few hairs falling out due to breakage.
- Also, my hair seemed to have more volume than before.
- It wasn’t thin before, but now it seemed fuller.
Basically – from what I have seen, Revita does its job.
I only used 1 bottle of each, so it’s hard to notice an effect in terms of growth (in about 1.5-2 months).
But as for volume and strength, I could see an improvement.
Though I was not the best candidate for Revita – my results with it were pretty good:
- hair density and volume increased
- there was less breakage overall
- hair felt stronger and shinier
Now – if you’re using this shampoo for hair loss/growth, it’s going to take more than 1-2 months.
That’s why shampoos are not my #1 choice at this chapter.
I do recommend a certain shampoo – as it has a faster and better effect.
But Revita isn’t my top pick.
#5 – Other Opinions (8 out of 10)
Since my results weren’t very relevant, I tried to look for other opinions.
That’s why I included some other customers’ reviews in this section.
In this way – you could see the whole picture (not just my opinion).
Note: I only considered authentic reviews, not promotional ones.
1. What People Say
First of all – Revita’s shampoo has many reviews on Amazon (which are known to be real).
As an average, it has about 4 stars out of 5 – which is great.
So here’s what most people say about it:
- Many claim it works really well for their hair.
- Others say it was really helpful for their shedding.
- Some others praise is regarding hair growth speed.
- A few say it makes their hair really soft.
- There are also some unsatisfied users.
- Some complain that it needs to be used too frequently.
- Others claim it makes their hair too greasy.
- There are also some saying it does not work for them.
But overall – there are more than 75% satisfied customers, which tells a lot.
One thing I noticed is that some users claim it needs about 2-3 months to start working.
This could be why other customers did not see any improvement. They did not use it long enough.
2. Biggest Complaints
Just like any other product – Revita also has bad reviews.
Most users are complaining about:
- High price for the quantity
- Takes a long time to work
- Needs to be used 5 times a day
- Not effective in all cases
- Bad packing
Now – I have used this product myself, and I do agree that it’s pricey.
But considering its ingredients and effect – I personally believe it’s worth the money.
(That even though I usually criticize and avoid expensive products).
As for the other complaints – shampoos need a longer time to work (than supplements).
So unless you use this shampoo for 2-3 months at least, you will not see any change.
Revita has a really positive feedback overall:
- over 75% satisfied customers
- many praises in terms of effect
It’s true that it also has some complaints, but not all of them are 100% relevant.
But overall – people see it as a quality product. And I personally agree.
#6 – Price (6 out of 10)
Despite being a quality product, Revita is pretty expensive.
That’s probably its #1 drawback at this point.
1. The Exact Price
After looking into several retailers – here are the lowest prices I found for Revita:
- regular version (7 oz) costs $32
- large version (33.1 oz) costs around $78
- conditioner also costs $32 (regular version)
Basically – a bottle of Revita costs $32, which is quite pricey.
Plus, the lowest prices I found were on Amazon.
You can also find this shampoo of DS Laboratories’ official website – but surprisingly, prices are higher.
2. Worth It Or Not?
In my opinion – yes, it’s really worth it.
That even though I do admit it’s quite an expensive product. However:
- formula/ingredients are really strong
- several studies behind
- trustworthy producer with a great reputation
The only downside is that one bottle isn’t going to last a lot.
If you use it according to the instructions (5 days a week, applied twice) – one bottle isn’t going to last more than 1 month.
I personally did not use it so frequent and it lasted less than 2 months.
So if you plan to use it as the label recommends, get the 33.1 oz bottle from the start.
Overall – I think Revita’s shampoo is worth the money.
It’s indeed a pricey product, but it also has a pretty good quality and formula.
So it’s worth it overall.
But as I said, it’s not the very best shampoo I know.
#7 – Where To Find It (10 out of 10)
Revita’s products are available in several retailers.
First of all – the producer’s official website offers all sizes/versions. However:
- price is overall higher than on Amazon/Ebay
- shipping fees aren’t included
So if you make the calculations – Amazon remains the cheapest option.
Regarding Ebay, you can also find low prices there.
But in most cases – it depends on the sellers:
- many of them are based on Asia
- shipping is usually either very expensive (over $30)
- or it takes several months to arrive
Plus – Ebay doesn’t have such a safe customer service as Amazon. That’s why it’s a bit risky.
For this reason, I personally recommend buying Revita’s products from Amazon.
#8 – FAQs
Coming up – I will try to answer the top questions about Revita’s shampoo.
Note: I might repeat something I already mentioned, but it’s easier to spot here.
1. How often you should use it?
According to the label:
- for best results, you need to use it 5 times a week
- also, it’s recommended to apply it twice in every wash
However, I personally did not use it so often and I could still see results.
But if you’re using it for hair loss/growth – you will need to use it as such (for fast results).
2. How long lasts one bottle?
This also depends on how often you use it.
In my case – a bottle lasted almost 2 months.
But if you use it as recommended – a 7 oz bottle will last at most 1 month.
3. Can you use it together with other drugs?
Definitely – it’s a shampoo so there’s no possible risk of interactions.
4. Are there any side effects?
I personally did not experience any.
Besides, I found almost no complaints at this chapter in all the reviews I looked into.
There were some people complaining of greasier hair – but that’s not a real side effect.
So Revita’s shampoo is pretty safe to use.
5. How fast should you notice an improvement?
First of all – it depends whether you use it as recommended (5 times a week) or not.
If you do, you should see changes in your hair loss/growth in about 2-3 months.
Otherwise – it will probably take longer.
However – if you only use it for strength and shine, you should see results after 1 month.
#9 – Final Conclusions
Here’s how I would sum up my opinion on Revita’s shampoo (in 3 ideas).
1. Excellent Formula
As I said before – it’s probably the best shampoo I know (at this chapter):
- several studies conducted on it
- quality ingredients
- many herbal extracts
Overall – it has about 12 active ingredients with clinical evidence behind.
I personally don’t know any other shampoo with that.
2. Strong Potency
Revita’s product promises a lot – like most shampoos do.
But unlike many of them, it actually keeps its promises:
- strengthens and adds volume
- increases shine and softness
- decreases breakage
Besides – it also seems to regenerate new growth and stop hair loss.
But I personally did not use it long enough to see this, that’s why I can’t tell.
Still – the high number of praises makes me think this is true.
3. Pricey For The Quantity
Revita is an expensive product, to be honest.
But considering its formula and producer – it’s worth the money.
However, it’s not worth the quantity:
- you have to use it 5 times a week (for best results)
- you have to apply it twice in every wash
If you follow these recommendations – a 7 oz bottle won’t last more than 1 month.
That’s why I think it’s too expensive for the quantity.
My Verdict – Is Revita Worth Buying?
Short answer: Yes and no.
Despite being a bit pricey, it’s a good shampoo for hair loss/growth:
- one of the best formulas I have seen (in a topical product)
- 2 different studies on the product
- each ingredient has several studies behind
- many praises and positive reviews
- really good effect in my case
Now – it’s not my #1 recommended shampoo.
So what do I recommend as a #1 choice?
A product called Strengthening Shampoo by Valotin:
- extremely effective for most hair problems
- great ingredients and formulation
- worked really well in my case
- very affordable
Now – Revita’s shampoo is a good product overall.
But Valotin’s product is superior in most chapters (including price, quality and quantity).
That’s why I recommend it as a better alternative.
In my case, it had much better results overall.
