DOES REVIVV STOP HAIR LOSS?
Revivv hair growth serum has been gaining some attention from quality sites like follicle thought which wrote a piece on the hair growth serum two months ago. The hair growth serum is 100% drug-free, meaning all of the ingredients in the formula are naturally sourced. Now, I know what many of you think ‘all-natural’ is synonymous with ‘doesn’t work.’ If you’re having those thoughts, it is fair. Skepticism in the hair loss industry is a must, especially with all the snake oil on the market. In this article, we will be reviewing the mechanisms of action and the ingredients in Revivv hair growth serum.
The Science Behind Revivv Hair Growth serum
Modern hair loss research indicates that DHT causes male and female pattern hair loss. DHT is a steroidal hormone that is a byproduct of testosterone. The 5-alpha reductase enzyme converts testosterone into DHT via the bloodstream. The most effective hair loss treatments are potent 5-alpha reductase inhibitors like Avodart (dutasteride) and Propecia (finasteride). While DHT is the primary catalyst for genetic hair loss in men and women, it is not the only mechanism contributing to hair loss.
Four mechanisms contribute to hair loss:
- Scalp Inflammation
- Blood and Oxygen Supply
- Shortened Anagen (Growth) Cycle
Some may argue that DHT is the cause of scalp inflammation and that DHT shrinks the hair follicle, causing the ‘anagen’ growth cycle to shorten. However, I believe the four mechanisms are correlated but not directly caused by DHT. Revivv claims that the sugars that typically convert into glycogen in the scalp convert into fat, which triggers scalp inflammation referred to as ‘micro-inflammation.’ Revivv is a multi-modal hair growth serum created to treat the various modalities related to genetic hair loss through various natural ingredients.
