Revita increases the diameter of the hair strands while gently cleansing the scalp, leaving the hair soft with a pleasant smell. Revita hair growth shampoo acts from the beginning, before the problem appears, until later phases of hair loss.
Revita shampoo starts acting on your scalp and hair follicles to stimulate growth from the first day of use. The time you will need to note the first results will depend on the severity and duration of your hair loss. No matter how long or how intense your hair loss is, using Revita hair regrowth shampoo on a daily basis will improve the vitality of your scalp, maintaining the quality of your hair and stimulating new hair growth.
Revita hair growth shampoo is a safe and very intensive shampoo treatment intended for various types of hair loss phases. In general the compounds contained in the new Revita hair loss shampoo have a very low incidence of adverse reactions. When used correctly Revita is not only safe, but actually necessary to maintain optimal scalp and hair health. However, due to the use of very high concentrations of these compounds some individuals may have sensitivity to some of the components in this formulation and should avoid using Revita® if a sensitivity reaction is noted.
Directions for Use of Revita
After applying Revita hair growth shampoo from DS Labs with a gentle massage , you should leave the regrowth shampoo on the scalp from 1 – 2 minutes before rinsing the shampoo out. Then repeat your aplication of Revita and leave on the scalp 3 – 5 minutes. If desired, follow with a high quality hair conditioner. For optimal results, Revita hair growth shampoo should be used at least 5 times per week.

I'm surprised more people aren't interested. If you've followed Big Vrungas hair loss mega-thread, you'd see that this stuff has all the topical ingredients he recommend, and then some. The company, DSLaboratories, cites clinical studies for most of the ingredients.
I've noticed a slowing of hair loss in 3 months. And it's DAMN good shampoo, leaving my hair soft and shiny, and it smells good.
They also just came out with a minoxidil product:
Cosmeceutical developer launches Spectral.DNC-L® with most active ingredients to retain and regrow hair
MIAMI, January 2, 2008 - DS Laboratories, a developer of high-performance cosmeceuticals, launched Spectral.DNC-L, its much-anticipated new hair-growth formula targeting men who suffer with advanced androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness of 4 or greater on the Norwood scale), today at a reception hosted in its offices.
The company's young marketing director, Daniel Khesin, positioned the premium product as "combining all the latest hair-growth science in one convenient formula. Spectral.DNC-L delivers ingredients to grow hair via every known medical pathway."
Most competitive products contain a single active ingredient, usually some version of minoxidil. But Khesin describes the new DS Laboratories entry as "the most aggressive, most powerful, most effective topical treatment available - with or without a prescription - to retain and regrow hair."
The formula contains a long list of cutting-edge actives, including research-grade 5% minoxidil, plus procyanidins, Aminexil, arginine, 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors, and more. After about a decade of dermatological research and clinical trials, each molecule was selected to target a specific physiological pathway.
Khesin says one great contributor to the efficacy of Spectral.DNC-L is his company's proprietary nanosome, a micro-sphere of organic liposome - 200 times smaller than a human skin cell - that deposits active ingredients deep within the scalp. Regular creams and lotions sit on the surface of the skin. But tiny nanosomes can burrow deep to fuse with affected tissues and dissolve gradually for maximum effect.
Spectral.DNC-L comes in a cream base for easy application without dripping. Its active ingredients are:
Minoxidil. Spectral.DNC-L starts with research-grade 5% minoxidil, the first drug approved by the US Food and Drug Administration to treat male pattern baldness, because it is well known to grow hair on the vertex of the head.
Procyanidins. The new formula contains procyanidins, which are flavanols derived naturally from apples, because the latest research indicates they restore the hairline more effectively than minoxidil.
Aminexil. After minoxidil, this patented molecule is the medication most clearly demonstrated via clinical trials to regrow hair. It protects roots and strengthens fibers.
Arginine. Spectral.DNC-L helps to strengthen and nourish follicles since it contains the amino acid arginine, a metabolic precursor of nitric oxide, an important vasodilator, and a mediator of cutaneous cell function.
5-alpha-reductase inhibitors. The product incorporates three potent extracts to inhibit 5-alpha-reductase because that enzyme synthesizes dihydrotestoster one, which damages hair follicles. The compounds are ripe olive (verbascoside), saw palmetto (serenoa repens), and flax seed (secoisolariciresinol diglucoside).
Adenosine. This nucleoside works in biochemical processes like energy transfer (adenosine triphosphate and adenosine diphosphate) and signal transduction (cyclic adenosine monophosphate) within follicles.
Retinol. Spectral.DNC-L uses retinol, a form of vitamin A, because it improves the absorption of minoxidil. The two are often prescribed together.
Vitamins and minerals. Spectral.DNC-L contains biotin, mineral salts, and other vitamins and minerals because they support follicular energy transfer and metabolic functions.
Herbal extracts. Pure extracts of ivy and hops can potentiate the active hair-growth agents since they are known to speed circulation and deliver nutrition.
Its multilateral attack against baldness means that Spectral.DNC-L can protect against damage, slow hair loss, improve follicle health, and grow new hair longer, thicker, and faster than products that rely on minoxidil alone.
DS Laboratories' Daniel Khesin assures users they will "get to keep the hair you have, regrow hair that you lost, and live the lifestyles you really want." He challenges men, especially those who have been disappointed before, to commit to Spectral.DNC-L for three months, then evaluate their new hair.

Here's some info on some Revita ingredients:
The first clinical trial was conducted at Tsukuba Research Laboratories in Japan . The trial investigated the hair-growing effects of 1% Procyanidin B-2 solution after sequential use for 4 months. A double-blind clinical trial was performed, involving a total of 29 subjects (Procyanidin B-2, 19 men; placebo, 10 men). In the Procyanidin B-2 group, 78.9% showed an increased mean value of hair diameter, whereas only 30.0% in the placebo group showed any increase. The increased ratio of hairs measuring more than 40 micrometers in diameter after 4 months of Procyanidin B-2 treatment was significantly higher than that of the placebo controls. The increase in number of total hairs in the designated scalp area (0.25 cm square) of Procyanidin B-2 subjects after a 4 month trial was significantly greater than that of the placebo controls. The conclusion of the study is that Procyanidin B-2 treatment shows potential as a promising cure for male pattern baldness and no adverse side effects have been observed.
Revita shampoo includes both Procyanidin B-2 and C-1 after our own in vivo research showed that combining these two molecules together produces even more efficient hair re-growth results. In addition to that, these molecules are used at higher then 1% concentration for additional benefits.Copper Peptides have two main properties: (1) potent tissue protective anti-inflammatory agents that limit oxidative damage after tissue injury, and (2) tissue remodeling activation agents, that is, the processes for removal of damaged protein and scar tissue and their replacement by normal tissue. Studies at numerous universities and research institutes have found copper-peptides to improve hair transplant success, increase hair follicle size, stimulate hair growth and reduce hair loss.
Research scientists at the University of San Francisco Wound Center may have stumbled onto the answer to hair loss: something that has frustrated mankind for centuries. Their discovery was made while applying a synthetically formulated compound, Copper Peptide, to severe wound areas on several patients. During this process something unusual happened. Not only did the wounds heal about 30 percent faster, but a significant stimulation of the follicular cells occurred. As a side effect, these tripeptide complexes actually grew hair around the wound area.
The discovery was so startling that they then applied the same Copper Peptide complex to a female patient who had suffered roughly 90 percent alopecia (hair loss) for years. After about six months of use, she had recovered almost 100 percent of her hair. Dr. Loren Pickart, the leading authority in Copper Peptide technology, describes it as being like a protein injection to the scalp.
Tests were then conducted with chemotherapy patients and recent hair transplant recipients, all with great success in stimulating newer and stronger hair follicles. The implications of such a startling discovery have gotten the attention of several large companies.Several compounds have recently gained recognition for ameliorating cellular dysfunction. One type of dysfunction which has been well studied is alopecia for which anti-alopecia agents such as minoxidil and cyoctol have gained attention. However, most of these anti-alopecia agents are only minimally effective in some cases and/or can cause adverse dermatological or systemic reactions.
A method for ameliorating a cellular dysfunction of a tissue, which is also useful as the treatment of hair loss and stimulation of hair growth comprises of administering a nitroso or nitrone spin trap to the affected tissue. These agents inhibit the reaction of superoxide and nitric oxide to produce peroxinitrite. Spin traps can provide unique protection against free radicals.
Scientists discovered that nitrone and nitroso spin traps have properties in the body for ameliorating cellular dysfunction in tissue attributed, in part, to high energy oxygen and hydroxyl free radicals, and enhancing recuperation of the tissue. N-t-butyl-.alpha.-phenylnitrone (PBN) can be administered, for example, as an anti-alopecia agent to stimulate hair growth.
Spin traps can be administered to the skin to be treated, including the scalp. Depending on the type of hair loss or alopecia being treated and the conditions thereof, the stimulation of hair growth can usually be obtained by topical application, preferably repeated daily application for a period of 3-6 months. The utility of topically applied spin traps also includes an increased rate of growth, increased hair diameter, follicular neogenesis, and the like; inhibiting hair loss or alopecia from progressing, for example, in male pattern baldness, or during the course of treatment with other therapeutic agents known to induce hair loss, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy in cancer treatment.
Spin traps can be used alone or in combination with other compounds which are available to enhance the function of hair growth stimulation.
If we first examine the role of androgens, specifically dihydrotestosterone (DHT), we find that this hormone has been thought to slowly "choke" the growth of the hair follicle by inhibiting the function of an enzyme in the hair follicle called adenylate cyclase. Suffice it to say that when DHT concentrations remain high in the scalp, we see terminal (thick, coarse) scalp hair become reduced to vellus hair (fine, thin peach fuzz).
Ketokonazole is an antifungal medication and is significant for those combating hair loss for a couple of reasons. First, ketoconazole's action as an antifungal agent reduces scalp irritation caused by fungal colonization or infection. The reduction of the inflammatory process that occurs in male pattern alopecia is crucial. Second, ketoconazole has been shown in many studies to physiologically have an anti-androgenic (anti-DHT) effect.
On March 04, 2001, at the American Academy of Dermatology Meeting in Washington DC, scientists presented the findings of a study done on 1% ketoconazole shampoo which has good news for hair loss sufferers. It has long been known that 2% prescription ketoconazole has beneficial effects on Androgenic Alopecia (MPB). It however has been unclear whether the same benefits can be obtained by using the non-prescription 1% version.
In the study presented, one hundred male volunteers with mild to moderate dandruff and somewhat oily scalp, were using, in a double-blind fashion, either a 1% ketoconazole shampoo or a 1% zinc pyrithione shampoo, 2-3 times a week for 6 months.
Analysis of the different parameters set up in the study shows that the hair diameter gradually increased with ketoconazole use (+8.46%) over a 6 month period, whereas the diameter showed a trend to decrease with zinc pyrithione use over the same period (-2.28%). The sebum excretion rate was reduced with ketoconazole (-6.54%) while it increased with zinc pyrithione (+8.2%) over the same period of time. The number of hair shed over a 24-hour period was reduced by 16.46% with ketoconazole and 6.02% with zinc pyrithione after 6 months. Finally, the percentage of hairs in anagen phase increased by 6.4% during the study time.
The results are similar to a previous study done on 2% prescription strength Ketokonazole where it was shown that use of 2% ketoconazol yielded a 7% average increase in hair shaft diameter similar to what was achieved by the control group using 2% Minoxidil and a non-medicated shampoo.
This research clearly indicates that using 1% or 2% ketoconazole 2-3 times per week, will have positive effects on hair growth as well as controlling dandruff.
Rooibos or Red Bush Tea - a hardy shrub indigenous to the North Western Cape of South Africa – is an exciting new botanical ingredient with potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, well documented in the literature. Clinically Rooibos is often prescribed for nervous tension, allergies, stomach and digestive problems. However, the results from an independent study also showed a significant improvement in hair growth.
Studies were initiated at an independent laboratory (Dermascan, France) to study the effect of the use of Rooibos in a hair lotion on a group of healthy persons who were suffering from the problem of hair loss. A 90 day trial was conducted comparing a hair lotion containing 10% Rooibos with a placebo lotion. 5 ml of the alcoholic solutions were applied daily.
After 90 days results showed a significant increase of the hair growth speed in the lotion containing Rooibos compared with the placebo. An increase in the hair growth speed was observed with 89% of the volunteers with no undesirable reactions (irritation or allergy).
The participants were next asked to fill in a questionnaire. When the results were tallied, 67 percent rated their hair loss as zero or low, 78 percent saw a low to medium improvement, 45 percent saw a low to medium regrowth of hair, and 63 percent considered their hair had become smoother and more shiny. Conclusion: results show that most of the volunteers had a remarkable improvement in both the increase of the speed of hair growth, the decrease in hair loss and an overall improvement in hair condition.Sulphur is present in protein-rich foods containing high levels of the amino acids methionine and cysteine. These foods include meat, fish, legumes, nuts, eggs, and vegetables, especially onions. However, sulphur has recently become a popular nutritional supplement and topical treatment, thanks to the discovery of methylsulfonylmethane, or MSM.
The use of MSM as a nutritional supplement and topical application is relatively recent. An American chemist named Robert Herschler, began studying MSM in 1955. However, another man, Dr. Stanley Jacob with Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland, is considered by many to be the father of MSM. Dr. Jacob found that simple marine life like algae and plankton convert inorganic sulphur to organic sulphur compounds. These compounds are known as dimethylsulfonium salts. These salts are transformed into dimethyl sulfide (DMS), which is released into the atmosphere and is converted by ultraviolet light into dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). When DMSO oxidizes, it turns into MSM and is absorbed by plants that become food for animals and humans. MSM is a white, crystalline powder that is odorless and nearly tasteless. When taken as a dietary supplement, MSM proved to have the same health benefits as DMSO without side-effects such as bad breath, itchy skin, nasal congestion, and shortness of breath.
Why does MSM help with the development of longer and stronger hair? Various scientific studies have proven that MSM contributes a definite normalizing effect on body functions. The sulfur normally provided to the body by MSM is required for healthy collagen and keratin which are essential for healthy hair, skin and nails. MSM also has proven antioxidant benefits which can disrupt or alter damaging chain reactions of lipid peroxidation in the cell membranes.
MSM has been widely used as a dietary supplement without any reports of allergy or intolerance related to its use. Supplements of MSM are comfortably assimilated without side effects. There are no known contraindications. The sulfur normally provided to the body by MSM is required for healthy collagen and keratin which are essential for healthy hair, skin and nails. Healthy hair is stronger hair and hair that can achieve its natural genetic growth patterns.
Revita® provides MSM to your scalp and hair, acting on hair loss through multiple compounds and mechanisms, from prevention to later phases.Active caffeine ingredient helps to regulate the effects of testosterone levels. Male pattern baldness is known to occur in individuals with a sensitivity to testosterone, causing damage to hair follicles that eventually leads to baldness. Studies have shown that after caffeine treatment average hair growth was increased by around 46% and the life cycle of the hair was extended by 37%.
Caffeine is a xanthine alkaloid compound that acts as a stimulant in humans. Caffeine is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant, having the effect of warding off drowsiness and restoring alertness.
The independent study at the University of Jena used hair samples from the scalps of young men entering into the first stages of hormone-related hair loss. The study relied on a hair organ culture that used four different types of testing samples. The first was a nutrient-based sample, the second a testosterone only sample, the third was a caffeine only sample and the fourth a mixture of caffeine and testosterone.
According to the research, results showed that the samples containing the caffeine nutrient helped to stave off hair loss and encouraged new hair growth, while the sample that relied on testosterone only led to increased hair loss.
New studies by the Berlin-based "Charité" university clinic prove the absorption of caffeine by the hair follicles after being left on for a mere 2 minutes. They also show that the caffeine remains detectable up to 24 hours.
L-Carnitine, a vitamin-like nutrient, occurs naturally in the human body and is essential for turning fat into energy. Active energy metabolism is an essential prerequisite for the growth of strong and healthy hair. In biological systems ATP acts as the universal energy currency. One of the most potent bio-actives that significantly increases cellular ATP contents is carnitine tartrate.
Statistical evaluation demonstrated a significant increase in ATP equivalents in human hair roots treated with carnitine tartrate, showing that carnitine tartrate is an ideal ingredient for hair care formulations, providing energy for the optimal environment to produce strong and healthy hair.
Throughout the test period ATP content within plucked hair follicles was determined twice daily using a commercially available test kit. Statistical evaluation of baseline adjusted values demonstrated a significant increase in ATP equivalents in human hair roots treated with carnitine tartrate. These effects were absent in the placebo group, thus underlining the stimulating activity of carnitine tartrate.
The outstanding bio-activity of carnitine tartrate was furthermore demonstrated in a second study, assessing the effects after a single application of a shampoo formulation supplemented with carnitine tartrate. Again, ATP levels in plucked human hair follicles were significantly increased. They conclude that carnitine tartrate is an ideal ingredient for hair care formulations, providing energy for the optimal environment to produce strong and healthy hair.The emu, Dromaius nova hollandiae, is a flightless bird part of a group called ratites which also includes the ostrich and the kiwi. Modern Australians learned early on from the Aborigines the many valuable qualities in the emu and its oil. The earliest research studies in emu oil come from Australia, and Australia continues to export emu oil to this day.
In the United States today there is a growing network of research labs interested in emus and their incredible oil. Emu oil is rendered from a thick pad of fat on the back of the bird that was apparently provided by nature to protect the animal from the extreme temperatures in its Australian homeland.
Emu oil is an oil that is deep penetrating and super hydrating to hair and skin - an all-natural tissue nutrient. Michael Hollick, MD, Ph.D., Professor of Medicine, Physiology, and Dermatology at Boston University School of Medicine conducted a study involving emu oil and hair growth. His study found that there was a 20% increase in growth activity of skin that received emu oil, compared to skin that received corn oil. Looking at the hair follicles, Dr. Hollick realized they were much more robust, the skin thickness was remarkably increased, suggesting that emu oil stimulated skin growth and hair growth. Additionally, the study showed that over 80% of hair follicles that had been "asleep" were woken up, and began growing.
Emu oil is anti-inflammatory, which may be in part why it stimulates hair growth. Emu Oil has also been shown to be a 5 alpha reductase inhibitor in target tissues when topically applied, which likely contributes significantly to its hair growth properties. A third important property of emu oil is that it is bacteriostatic.
Emu Oil contains a multitude of Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) which help to "feed" the skin. Consumers who suffer from natural forms of baldness have reported hair re-growth. The good news in these reports is that Emu Oil helps stimulate and awaken the sleeping hair follicle.

Yes. I used a bottle of 2%, and it irritated the crap out of my scalp. I also didn't see a reduction in hair loss. Revita is pretty moisturizing stuff, so no issues with irritation.
01-20-2008, 09:48 PM
Id really like to stack this with Toco-8. I need all the help I can get...ready to shave it off at this point and just be done with it. But if I could get some thickness back it may be worth delaying the inevitable for a few more years!
