This week we got a new product into the salon, and I am beyond excited to be testing it out. DS Labs is promising me hair that grows thicker and faster, just by washing it with their Revita shampoo. Score. I've strategically starting using the shampoo immediately after getting my roots done, so I will have a clear line to show how much my hair has grown. I'm on day three of use, and this is my take so far: Pros:
My hair feels FABULOUS. For those of who don't know me, I am currently struggling with blondarexia. Blondarexia is a technical term for a person who bleaches (uh, excuse me, decolorizes) their hair to a frizzy frazzled crisp on a mission to eliminate all trace of color. Needless to say, when my hair gets wet, it feels like overcooked spaghetti. It resembles cotton candy that has been soaked in water, and it does not want to do anything I tell it to- until now. Some of the ingredients in the shampoo and conditioner include extracts of apple seed oil, rooibus, caffeine, ginseng, wheat protein, and rice protein. They are magic, and sound like they would make a delicious tea, you know, if they weren't in shampoo form. For the first time in months I'm able to blow dry and style my hair, and I must say, I've been looking quite saucy this week.
I have to wash my hair everyday, when I normally go about 3-4 days in between washes. This can make some people have to adjust their daily routine. For someone like me, having super clean floufy hair works in my favor, but my boss who has super curly hair has been struggling with controlling the largeness of her curls since switching shampoos. It also adds quite a bit of time to my shower. The instructions tell you to shampoo, leave for 1 minute, rinse, shampoo, leave for 3-5 minutes, rinse, and then let the conditioner sit for 3-5 minutes as well.
My first impression is that it's a great product to protect and repair hair, even if it doesn't fulfill it's promise. Results, which are supposed to be up to 1" of growth in a month, are guaranteed within 60 days (as long as it is used according to the manufacturers directions), so I'll be checking in then with an update!
