    I firstly think that a good shampoo is very relevant for your issue, think about it, when you brush your teeth you do it with teeth whitening toothpaste? do why don’t you do your hair the same.

    Since college, my hair has steadily become thinner. I have tried MANY products, and none of them work as well the Shielo Volumizing. Before I tried using it daily, I was told that I should have a picture taken of my scalp before I started using it, so I did. About two months later, I took another picture, and I was truely amazed. My scalp actually had MANY new hairs growing. I was SO happy. I highly recommend Shielo’s product if you are looking for something safe to help with hair loss.

    Naaz,

    Revita Shampoo is suitable for use by both men and women. However, Revita does not stop hair loss and, on its own, is not likely to produce a significant cosmetic change in your thinning hair. It is best used a supplement to other proven hair loss treatments.

    For females suffering from genetic hair loss,the only FDA approved and clinically proven treatment is Rogaine (minoxidil). While male patients may also use Propecia (finasteride), this drug must not be taken or even handled by female patients.

    Mariam,

    Alopecia aretea is a slightly different condition compared to androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness), which is what ketoconazole based shampoos are supposed to help treat. Technically, these shampoos help remove build-up and some inflammation from the scalp, and also may have some anti-dihydrotestosterone (the hormone responsible for hair loss) qualities.

    However, in many cases, alopecia aretea is a more complicated condition that can be caused by a genetic factor, an autoimmune condition, or stress that helps push one of these conditions over the edge. Some researchers report success treating isolated areas with steroid injections and others say minoxidil (Rogaine) treatments may help, but because the condition is a bit more unique, I really recommend consulting with a personal physician or hair loss expert (http://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/Consult-a-Physician/hair-loss-doctors.asp).

    In this case, I think the best course of treatment would probably be a thorough evaluation from a physician and whatever type of intervention (topical treatments, oral medication, injections, etc) he/she think is necessary.

    I hope this helps!

    SHAMPOO’S SO NOT TREAT HAIR LOSS!!!! But they CAN make hair stronger and healthier so that it’ll stop falling out so easily. I didn’t get much improvement with this brand but Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo + conditioner have been lifesavers. I even use the argan oil on its own and my hair has never been shinier, stronger or fuller 😀

    With Hair Loss Treatment products, hair will feel thicker and fuller after only one application and important long-term effects will occur after repeated usage.

    I had chemotherapy 4 years ago and although my hair has grown back it is much thinner than before. Would
    a shampoo like Revita help this problem?

    Susan,

    Revita Shampoo is a great shampoo and may add density to the hair due to the active ingredient ketoconazole. However, you may benefit more from Rogaine (minoxidil).

    Many hair restoration physicians recommend men’s 5% minoxidil for their female patients. It is perfectly safe and twice as effective as the female product. However, the higher concentration increases the risk of side effects like scalp irritation and unwanted facial hair growth.

    This blog entry states that Revita contains 1% ketoconazole. Can someone tell me where that information was obtained? I have searched all over to find a legitimate source to support the 1% claim but I have not found any and DS Labs does not disclose the actual amount. I have come across many sites that have said it’s 1%, a handful that say 2%, and some that say less than 1%…but but in none of the cases is there any solid info to back it up. Thanks.

    Hair loss runs in my family. I’m 26 years old and I started to lose my hair right after high school. My hairline started to recede and was becoming thin around the temple area. I’ve been using the Shielo Volume Shampoo now for 4-5 months now and I love it!
    Once I started using this shampoo with the conditioner as well, I’ve noticed a HUGE difference! My hair stopped falling out. My hair grows faster and its thicker….Don’t expect this to grow hair where you lost it. It’s not going to happen. But to stop and prevent hair from falling out, this is the stuff for you
