what makes reviv3 different from other hair care products?
Most hair care products are designed to address the dead keratin fiber, commonly known as hair, and are formulated to cleanse and moisturize hair fibers only. REVIV3 products are formulated very differently, to care for the scalp first, as a healthy scalp results in healthy, full, and luscious hair growth.
REVIV3 products are first and foremost skin care products for the scalp, which is a living organic tissue that benefits from nutrients and vitamins just as any other part of your body does. Our products eradicate environmental residue, restore moisture, and remove buildup left behind from other hair care products, while deeply cleansing and moisturizing, to achieve optimal health for your scalp, hair follicles and hair stems. All essential elements for healthy hair growth.

And while we view all our stylists as 'All-Stars', many of them are considered 'All-Stars' by popular standards. REVIV3 products are promoted and used by stylists across the globe, such as Kristoff Ball of Beverly Hills, who has embraced the REVIV3 approach to a healthy scalp and hair, and recommends our products to his celebrity clientele.
what educational resources are provided for consumers, stylists and salon owners?

is it normal to see an increase in the amount of hair you are losing during the first week?
Yes, when you begin using the REVIV3 3-PART SYSTEM, you may notice an initial increase in hair loss. This is because REVIV3 products are designed to remove buildup on the scalp and, as such, many hairs in the telogen phase may be released. The telogen phase is the resting phase when the mature hair is about to be shed or replaced; about 15% of hairs are in this phase at any given time. During this phase, hairs appear to be attached, but actually only remain connected to the scalp due to buildup. Since REVIV3 products remove buildup, hairs in the telogen phase are released more quickly. This process allows for new and healthy hair to grow.
