THE SCIENCE OF HAIR GROWTH

THE SCIENCE OF HAIR GROWTH

CLINICALLY TESTED IN USA

Citruslabs recently conducted a comprehensive 12-week US clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy of Vitamins Revive Hair Growth Vitamins Kit. The study focused on assessing the impact of the ‘Hair Nutra Growth’ and ‘Hair Nutra Boost’ supplements on hair loss mitigation, hair growth, and the general health and appearance of the hair among the participants.

The following key outcomes were observed during the clinical trial:

As early as Week 4, participants already experienced a significant improvement in overall hair health attributable to the synergistic effects of the ‘Hair Nutra Growth’ and ‘Hair Nutra Boost’ capsules.

88% of the study’s participants, by the conclusion of Week 8, expressed a preference to keep using both products of the kit. The reasons cited for this included significant improvements in various aspects of hair wellness, specifically:

👉 Reduced hair loss and hair shedding
👉 Increased hair thickness and fullness
👉 Enhanced overall hair health satisfaction
👉 Improved & enhanced hair softness
👉 Reduced noticeability of hair on the pillow in the mornings
👉 Reduced noticeability of hair fall in the shower after hair wash
👉 Reduced noticeability of excessive hair loss when brushing or combing hair

These findings underscore the potential benefits of the Vitamins Revive Hair Growth Vitamins Kit in supporting hair health and managing hair loss and hair thickness within the first 2 months of use

Genetics, aging, a nutritional deficiency, stress or sleep deprivation, and hormonal changes can all be at the root of your hair loss. Let’s explore each one-by-one and how it may lead to some of the specific signs and symptoms you’re experiencing. We’ll also explain our solution and the logic behind why it works.

Many women have more than one root cause of their hair problems. Scroll down and read to see if that’s true for you. If it is, no worries. In just 2 months of daily use, we can help you rediscover the hair you love…

Here are the Main Root Causes for Hair Loss:

GENETICS

  • Just as you may have inherited the gene for your eye color, you may have also inherited genes that determine hair growth. So, if your family album is filled with people who are bald or have thinning hair, it might simply be in your genes. While you can’t change your genes, you can change the way your hair looks and feels in just 2 months.
  • This genetic predisposition causes hair follicles to be sensitive to a hormone called, dihydrotestosterone, or DHT. Overt time, DHT can shrink these follicles and make them produce thinner and shorter hair strands. Eventually, these hair follicles might stop producing visible hair altogether, which leads to female or male pattern baldness.
  • If this is your root cause, your symptoms may become more noticeable as you age.
 
  • Receding Hairline – Your hairline gradually moves back, forming an “M” shape.
  • Thinning Hair – Your part may become wider, or you notice overall thinning.
  • Thinning Crown – In men, the top back part of their scalp often shows signs of thinning first, leading to the classic “bald spot”.
  • Miniaturized Hair – The hair that grows becomes finer and shorter, which indicated the shrinking of the follicle.
  • Increased Hair Shedding – You see more hair on your pillow, in the shower, or on your brush due to the weakened follicle.
  • Receding Hairline – Your hairline gradually moves back, forming an “M” shape.
  • Thinning Hair – Your part may become wider, or you notice overall thinning.
  • Thinning Crown – In men, the top back part of their scalp often shows signs of thinning first, leading to the classic “bald spot”.
  • Miniaturized Hair – The hair that grows becomes finer and shorter, which indicated the shrinking of the follicle.
  • Increased Hair Shedding – You see more hair on your pillow, in the shower, or on your brush due to the weakened follicle.

AGING

  • As we age, your hair grows more slowly. This “growth” stage is also shorter, which means there’s less time for hair to grow.
  • This results in shorter hair strands with less thickness. The levels of androgens (hormones like testosterone and DHT) increase with age.
  • This can lead to miniaturization of hair follicles and shorter, thinner strands. Aging also causes reduced blood flow and delivery of vital nutrients to the scalp.
  • Hair also loses color due to less production of melanin. Have we aged you just by reading this? No worries. In just 2 months of daily use, we can provide a noticeable improvement.
  • Gradual Thinning – Thinning is often more noticeable throughout the scalp in women.
  • Widening Part – A wider part that makes the scalp more visible is common.
  • Receding Hairline – Your hairline gradually moves back, forming an “M” shape.
  • Increased Hair Shedding – You see more hair on your pillow, in the shower, or on your brush due to the weakened follicle.
  • Shorter Hair Growth – Hair grows slower as we age and the length of hair strands may also decrease.
  • Changes in Hair Texture and Volume – Hair can become finer, more brittle, and lack the fullness it had in our younger years.
  •  
  • We use Saw Palmetto Extract, Pine Bark Extract, Fallopia Multiflora Extract, Zinc, Biotin, Liposomal Vitamin C and Vitamin A to offer support for age-related hair loss by promoting overall hair health, hormonal and addressing nutrient deficiencies.
  • These may encourage stronger hair growth, melanin production, minimize hair thinning, and support the scalp’s condition.

NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCY

  • A poor diet, one that’s filled with processed foods, added sugars, and unhealthy fats can have a negative impact on the health of your hair.
  • If you don’t eat enough protein, which is rich in vitamins and minerals, your hair will let you know. Your hair follicle will weaken, growth will be slowed, and you’ll experience increased hair breakage.
  • Deficiencies of key vitamins and minerals can impact the hair growth cycle and lead to thinning and shedding. A lack of vital nutrients can also result in hormonal imbalances, inflammation, and reduced blood flow to the scalp. This will make hair thinning and loss worse.
  • Hair Thinning and Shedding – This can be indicative of various nutrient deficiencies. Inadequate levels of biotin, vitamin C, vitamin B12, folate, and zinc may lead to weakened hair follicles and increased shedding.
  • Dry Brittle Hair – Not providing your body with enough biotin, vitamin A, vitamin C, zinc, and protein can make your hair dry, brittle, and prone to breakage.
  • Slow Hair Growth – If your hair is growing slowly, it might mean you’re deficient in biotin, vitamin D, iron, zinc, vitamin A, B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B6, and B12), and silica.
  • Scalp Issues – Poor nutrition can lead to a dry, flaky, or itchy scalp, which can all impact the health of your hair. Vitamins and minerals such as the following play a key role in the health of your scalp: vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin D, zinc, selenium, magnesium, and manganese.
  • Hair Loss Conditions – Nutritional deficiencies can make telogen effluvium worse. This is a condition where hair prematurely enters the resting phase and causes increased shedding. These vitamins all play a role in telogen effluvium: vitamin A, folate, vitamin B12, vitamin D.
  • We use vitamins (A, C, B complex vitamins) and minerals (Zinc, Selenium, Magnesium, and Manganese) in their highly absorbable and effective forms to address hair loss triggered by nutritional deficiencies.
  • These essential nutrients support the overall health of hair follicles, promote proper circulation to the scalp, and aid in the production of strong hair strands.
  • In addition, we added MSM and Spirulina Platensis, a nutrient-rich superfood packed with essential vitamins, minerals, and proteins to support hair follicle health, strengthens hair strands, and promotes overall hair growth. Spirulina is high is content of iron, biotin, and antioxidants that nourish the scalp, encourages circulation, and helps combat oxidative stress, contributing to revitalized and healthier-looking hair.
  • We also included a powerful Probiotic Blend consisting of 10 different strains, providing 2 billion CFUs per serving size. This probiotic blend strengthens the digestive system, allowing the body to absorb nutrients more efficiently. Additionally, these probiotics help to mitigate gastrointestinal side effects that might be in some cases associated with taking dietary supplements

STRESS & SLEEP DEPRIVATION

  • Stress can lead to an increase in stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline. These elevated stress hormones can affect hair growth by inhibiting the natural activity of hair follicles. For example, this can cause a condition called telogen effluvium, where a large portion of hair follicles enter a resting stage prematurely.
  • As a result, you may notice an increase in hair shedding and thinning. Intense acute stress and emotional trauma has also been linked to the acceleration of hair turning gray.
  • Sleep deprivation can also have a negative effect on your hair by disrupting the hair growth cycle and cause hormonal imbalances and a weakened immune system.
  • Increased Hair Shedding – You may notice increased shedding when you wash or brush your hair.
  • Thinning Hair – Your hair may be visibly thinner, particularly where it was once thick.
  • Receding Hairline – This can happen because of stress-induced hormonal changes.
  • Changes in Hair Texture – Stress can cause your hair to become dry, brittle and more prone to breakage.
  • Slower Hair Growth – The disrupted growth cycle caused by stress can be responsible for your hair growing at a slower rate.
  • Premature Graying – Stress effects hair pigmentation (melanin), which can cause your hair to turn gray prematurely.
  • Itchy or Irritated Scalp – Conditions like dandruff and psoriasis can be made worse by stress and lead to itchiness.
  • We use the adaptogenic herbs: Chinese Dodder and Fallopia Multiflora that may improve hair health by supporting the body’s response to stress and promoting overall well-being. These herbs balance stress hormones like cortisol and may reduce the negative impact of chronic stress on hair follicles.
  • We also use Liposomal Magnesium Citrate which can enhance sleep and relaxation by promoting muscle relaxation, regulating neurotransmitters for calming effects, reducing stress hormone activity as well as aiding melatonin production for sleep initiation and circadian rhythm alignment.
  • These effects may reduce negative effects of sleep deprivation on hair health.

HORMONAL CHANGES

  • Hormonal changes during pregnancy and menopause can have dramatic effects on your hair.
  • Hormonal imbalances disrupt the hair growth cycle, which can trigger shedding, thinning, and changes in hair texture.
  • For men, changes in testosterone levels can cause hair follicles to become more sensitive to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This leads to male pattern baldness.
  • Increased Shedding – If you’re noticing an increase in hair shedding when you wash or brush your hair, it could be a sign of hormonal shifts. This effects the hair growth cycle. After giving birth, you may experience significant shedding due to a drop in estrogen levels.
  • Widening Part – If your part becomes wider and you notice more scalp is exposed, this can indicate hair thinning due to hormonal factors.
  • Changes in Hair Texture and/or Volume – Your hair may become finer, weaker, and more prone to breakage because of hormonal changes.
  • Scalp Visibility – As your hair thins, your scalp may become more visible. This is especially true in areas where your hair was once thick.
  • We use Saw Palmetto Extract, Nano Curcumin, Liposomal Vitamin C, Zinc Picolinate and Manganese Sulfate that may help regulate unbalanced hormones and reduce hair loss in both men and women.

ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS

  • These are some of the reasons the environment can have a major impact on your hair and cause hair loss:
  • Exposure to UV Radiation – Prolonged exposure to the sun can weaken the proteins found in hair. This can make them brittle and more prone to break. This can also damage the scalp, affecting the health of your hair follicles.
  • Air Pollution – Pollutants in the air, such as toxins, can settle on your scalp. This can lead to inflammation and oxidative stress, which harm hair follicles and delay healthy hair growth.
  • Chemical Exposure – Harsh chemicals in shampoos and water can strip hair of its natural oils and proteins. This can cause dry, brittle hair, and hair loss.
  • Hard Water – When water has a high mineral content (known as hard water), mineral deposits can be left on your hair and scalp. This can cause dull, brittle hair, and make hair more prone to breakage.
  • Climate – High humidity can cause frizz and tangling. Dry climates can weaken hair fibers due to dryness.
  • Dry Brittle Hair – Weather conditions, exposure to UV radiation and pollutants can make hair dry, dull, and prone to breakage.
  • Increased Hair Shedding – Pollution, hard water, and chemical exposure can weaken hair follicles. This can lead to increased hair shedding when you shampoo or brush your hair.
  • Scalp Irritation – Pollution and chemical exposure can cause scalp irritation, itching, and inflammation.
  • Thinning Hair – Continued exposure to any of these environmental stressors can weaken your hair and lead to gradual thinning.
  • Dullness and Lack of Shine – Hard water and pollution can create a layer of residue on your hair. This can cause it to lose its natural shine.
  • Split Ends and Changes in Texture – Excessive exposure to the sun, wind, and pollution can cause the hair’s cuticle to become damaged. This results in spit ends and can make hair feel rough and course
  • We use powerful antioxidants including proanthocyanidins from Pine Bark Extract, beta carotene and phycocyanin from Spirulina Platensis, Nano Curcumin, as well as Selenium, Vitamin C, Vitamin A and Niacin that can all combat hair loss caused by environmental factors.
  • These protective ingredients help neutralize the damage inflicted by pollutants, UV rays, and other external stressors.
  • Moreover, addition of MSM, Biotin and Liposomal Vitamin C supports keratin and collagen production which help strengthen hair strands making hair more resistant to pollution and UV radiation.
 

HAIR TREATMENTS

  • Overuse of flat irons, curling irons, and hair dryers are not your hair’s friends.
  • The same is true of tight ponytails and hair extensions. These can all damage hair and lead to hair breakage.
  • Repeated use of harsh chemicals, like dyes, bleaches, and perms can weaken hair and cause it to fall out
  • Excessive Hair Breakage – Hair becomes noticeably brittle and breaks easily, especially when brushing, combing, or styling.
  • Thinning Ends – Your ends can become wispy and thin due to excessive styling and chemical damage.
  • Scalp Irritation – Chemical treatments like dyes, perms, and relaxers can irritate the scalp causing it to become red, itchy, and uncomfortable.
  • Stunted Growth – Hair growth can be slowed with repeated damage from excessive styling and use of harsh chemicals. It can also lead to hair loss.
  • We use MSM, Spirulina Platensis, Liposomal Vitamin C, Biotin and Zinc that can potentially enhance hair strength which has been compromised by over-styling and chemical treatments and may help withstand damage from future styling and treatments.
 

ANEMIA

  • People who are anemic have fewer red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout the body, which includes hair follicles.
  • This weakens follicles and leads to slower growth, increased shedding, and thinning hair. Treating anemia can help restore proper oxygenation and improve hair health over time.
  • Pale Scalp – The skin on your scalp might appear paler than usual due to reduced blood flow and oxygen supply.
  • Increased Hair Shedding – Noticing more hair than usual on your pillow, in the shower drain, or on your brush.
  • Thinning Hair – Your hair might appear less dense, and you may notice wider parts or more scalp visibility.
  • Brittle Hair – Hair strands might become more fragile, making them prone to breakage and split ends.
  • Slower Hair Growth – Your hair’s growth rate may slow down, and new hair growth might be visibly reduced.
  • Changes in Texture – Hair might become coarser or more unruly due to weakened hair shafts.
  • Telogen Effluvium – Anemia can lead to a condition where more hair follicles than usual enter the resting phase and then shed together, causing noticeable thinning.
  • Delayed Recovery – Hair loss caused by anemia might persist even after the condition is treated, as hair follicles take time to recover
  • PLEASE NOTE: If you suspect that anemia is causing your hair loss, it is important to consult a healthcare professional. They can perform diagnostic tests and determine the best action for your overall health.
  • Non-hair-related symptoms of anemia include: fatigue, pale skin, weakness, shortness of breath, dizziness or light-headedness, cold hands and feet, brittle nails, and difficulty concentrating.
  • We use a special combination of the following to help address the impact mild anemia has on hair:
    – Liposomal Vitamin C
    – Folate – Vitamin B9
    – Vitamin B12
    – Spirulina Platensis
  • These ingredients have been shown to support the production of healthy red blood cells and improve iron absorption.
