When I started losing my hair in my late-thirties, I won’t lie - I panicked. Even though 50% of women experience some form of hair loss, it’s still such a taboo topic. I didn’t really know where to turn, so I went online to learn more and see what the best options were for treatment. It seemed like the most common was Minoxidil, an over the counter medication that has been used to treat hair loss for years. I ordered a 5% Minoxidil Foam, which I started using as directed, and kept my fingers crossed that I’d see improvement. Unfortunately, my hopes were too high.
Within just a few days of using the foam, my scalp started itching like crazy and my skin started flaking as well. (I couldn’t tell if this was from the product or from me scratching my scalp, but either way, it was not what I had hoped for.) Pretty soon I was noticing breakouts along my hairline where I had applied the foam. I was just as embarrassed about the acne as I was about the hair loss, and I couldn’t imagine living with it for months until I maybe started to see hair regrowth. I decided to stop using the Minoxidil and made an appointment at my dermatologist as soon as possible.
My doctor said that she’d seen these side effects before with Minoxidil and she told me about a product called REVIVV. Created by physicians and scientists, REVIVV is an all-natural topical hair serum that stimulates and rejuvenates hair follicles, roots and the scalp to improve the appearance of your hair. My doctor said she had seen great results with other patients and that it was drug-free and wouldn’t have the side effects that other treatments could cause.
My order arrived quickly and I was really eager to get started. I first examined the Derma roller that I had also ordered, a device that contains 225 stainless steel micro needles that stimulate hair follicles and increase absorption of the REVIVV serum. I used it as directed, applying light pressure while rolling back and forth across my scalp until it became a bit sensitive. It definitely wasn’t painful, it just felt a bit strange the first time I used it. But if it would improve the performance of the serum, I was game.
Then I turned my attention to the serum. Immediately, I could tell that the application was way better than the Minoxidil foam. The REVIVV serum has a simple stainless steel rollerball design that makes it so easy to apply. I began to roll the serum liberally onto my scalp, which took about 15 seconds. It absorbed quickly and my hair looked great. No muss, no fuss, and I was out the door. So much easier than the foam.
After using the Derma roller and REVIVV serum together for 2 months, I noticed a big difference in the thickness and overall health of my hair. REVIVV had helped it to get back to its former glory. I was seeing much less hair in the shower drain and in my brush, and just feeling so much more confident overall. For those looking to treat hair loss, my advice is to skip the Minoxidil and go for REVIVV. For me it offered all of the amazing results with none of the unfortunate side effects. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
