Is traveling stressing you, thinning out your hair? Revivogen PRO may help!

People travel for all kinds of reasons -- it's not always about fun under the sun. Sometimes, you're interviewing for a job after being "between assignments" for a long period of time. Occasionally, you might be traveling to give a send-off to the dearly departed. Sometimes, you need to travel just to move! Even government agencies -- like the FAA -- know that these are super stressful events. It's not surprising that some of these might lead to thinning hair or losing hair.

Now, I don't have thinning or missing hair, but I was glad to be hosted to experience Revivogen PRO. It was created by Dr. Alex Khadavi, Board Certified Dermatologist. To look at his picture, it seems hard to imagine that he ever had a problem with thinning hair! But this is what he says about the creation of the Revivogen line:

I became concerned about my own hair loss when I began balding at the age of 20. At that point, the only product available for treating hair loss in men and women was Rogaine, and both the product itself and the results left a lot to be desired. I had my own moment of enlightenment upon learning that dihydrotestorsterone, or DHT, was the key hormone responsible for the chain of events that leads to hair loss in men and women. That's when I started experimenting with pharmaceutical and natural DHT blockers, which eventually led to the development of Revivogen."

› HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO NOTICE EFFECTS?

Results are seen immediately after 1 use. The hair appears thicker, fuller and healthier. After 2 months the hair feels thicker, after 6 months there is visible improvement, and after 1 year maximum results are achieved.

SIDE EFFECTS?

› HOW DOES IT WORK?

Revivogen PRO uses natural ingredients that have been clinically proven effective in their abilities to block the hormones that cause thinning hair and naturally stimulate the hair to growth thicker again.

› PRIMARY EFFECTIVE INGREDIENTS?

›WHERE IS IT SOLD

At this time Revivogen PRO is exclusively available In all ULTA Beauty stores.

I haven't used the products for the length of time (up to 18 months) that a person with serious hair loss would need to. But, with the time I have been using the products, I experienced thicker hair -- even before drying/styling. The products have a fresh, mixed citrus scent to my nose. And, what's really impossible to find in most volumizing products: your hair is still manageable without adding lots of detangling products.

Even non-thinning hair can benefit from the products. For instance, have you ever had an irritated, itchy scalp? That seems to happen to me a lot in warm weather. One time, I was going to a salon to get my roots done. The beautician took one look at my scalp and said, "Not today, princess!" Besides not liking her nasty attitude, I didn't like that I was stuck with dark roots! I wish I had had the Exfoliating Scalp Cleanser. It's "A one of a kind foam that crackles, bubbles and pops to gently cleanse and exfoliate the scalp to calm flaky, itchy, and irritated scalp." It feels like little icy Pop Rocks in your scalp, cooling down all the itchiness! Very refreshing!

Bio Cleansing Shampoo is rich and gentle, yet lathers beautifully. There's research out there that getting rid of pore-clogging sebum can help with hair growth. It's an effective cleanser and I'd say it works as a clarifying shampoo, getting rid of buildup.

Hair Mask is used like other hair masks -- about once or twice a week -- but it's a very different product than a typical hair mask. It doesn't weight hair down. It's not even a typical texture: instead of lotion textured, it reminds me more of steamed squash, if that makes sense. Think more active ingredients and less water/fillers.
