HLV FAQ

How Does Hair La Vie work? And What Makes it the Best on the Market?

Hair La Vie combines 20 clinically proven active ingredients (many more than any other product on the market today), which mix together to make a formula that not only restarts the growth process, but it strengthens and protects the hair with essential vitamins, such as, vitamin A, B1, B2, B3 and B6.

We start at your root, combining organic kelp powder and saw palmetto berry powder to begin repairing your hair's follicles. This helps clear any film, regulate resting time and inhibit follicle shrinkage. Strong follicles grow strong hair.

Next, we took care of your scalp with a healthy dose of biotin, pantothenic acid (calcium D-pantothenate) and flax seed oil powder, which promotes a healthy metabolism of oils on the scalp, preventing dryness and keeps the scalp clear of dandruff and other debris. This also strengthens the elasticity of your hair's cortex, preventing breakage.

Finally, we added multiple natural antioxidants and other all-natural ingredients that work together to promote strong, healthy, and thick hair.

We built this formula with no unnecessary fillers, binders or artificial colors or flavors. It is surrounded by a fast-absorbing veggie capsule.

Why does my hair feel stiff right after washing? (It then dries to a softer feel)

Revitalize is designed to be a clarifying shampoo. It helps to gently remove buildup from the hair. If you have traditionally used hair products that use silicones or other "coating" ingredients, it may take several washes to uncoat the hair of this residue. During the transition phase, it may leave your hair feeling stiffer until it dries. Don't worry, this is a great sign your hair is strengthening. Once it dries it will be softer without the buildup.

How does the shampoo work to cleanse my hair without drying it out?

The ingredients are all gentle and mild while still having excellent cleansing properties. There are also natural ingredients which help to draw moisture to the hair. There are also small amounts of natural oils (argan and marula) to help moisturize the hair and scalp.

Are their bad sulfates in the shampoo or conditioner?

No, there are not any sulfates in the shampoo. There is Behentrimonium Methosulfate in the conditioner, which is in the sulfate family, but it isn't the bad sulfates you're used to hearing about. This helps with frizz, control and makes it easier for you to comb your hair without damaging it.

Shouldn't a shampoo lather a lot to clean to hair?

Lather isn't important to cleansing. Some of the best cleansers don't lather at all. We aimed for mild natural blend which does not include toxic foamers like different harsh sulfates. Too much foaming can actually strip your hair of it natural oils causing extremely dry scalp.

What makes my scalp tingle when using the product?

The essential oils, specifically the peppermint essential oil, is what provides the tingling sensation.

What are phytoceramides?

Phytoceramides or "ceramides" are super-strong antioxidants that help slow the rate in which free radicals can attack and damage your skin.

They also activate peptide blends which boost the elastin and collagen production of your skin to help reduce wrinkles, lines, the bags under your eyes and any dry, leathery skin, all while firming and lifting.

Ceramides are naturally found in your epidermis. However, the production of ceramides decreases as you begin to age, which is the primary cause of wrinkles, dry skin and poor complexion. Phytoceramides are the plant based equivalent to ceramides.

The most common sources of phytoceramides are wheat and rice but they can also be found in sweet potato and tuber plants.

What makes your phytoceramides my best choice?

La Muse only uses the best clinically proven phytoceramides, Oryza Ceramides-PCD.

Oryza is an all-natural, gluten-free, rice-based ceramide that has multiple clinical studies showing how well they work. This is because of the extensive research and development process Oryza has developed to make sure their ceramides are of the best quality and set an industry standard for batting aging and proper skin hydration.

Are there also clinical trials to support La Muse Phytoceramides?

Yes, a third party independent at Soiken, Japan's Institute of General Medical Sciences performed the study. The study consisted of 33 individuals (6 male, 27 female), with an average age of 25, being given either a placebo or 40/mg of ceramides by Oryza daily over the course of 6 weeks.

Dermatologists were brought in to perform three-dimensional microscopic skin surface analysis, performed using VISIOCAN conducted by Courage and Khaza Gmbh. This was able to judge the skin for moisture content, smoothness, roughness and scaliness.

This study concluded that Oryza Ceramide-PCD increases skin hydration, reduces itchiness and redness, minimizes small lines and wrinkles, promotes skin smoothness and fights signs of aging visibly and from within.

The moisturizing effects of Oryza Ceramide was studied with other commercially available ceramides. Oryza Ceramides were proven to be the best with a moisture ratio of 35 percent. See graph below for more details.

Why do I need phytoceramides?

During the natural aging process your skin begins to produce less ceramides which protect your skin from free radicals that can ruin the elasticity and collagen production. Taking phytoceramides help counter this aging process by repairing and replenishing your skin's elasticity and collagen production. Phytoceramides are like an all-natural facelift.

How long does it take until you see results?

Skin reparation can take time depending on age and damage. Most people see results in as little as three weeks. However, it can take longer depending on skin damage.

Should I continue to use this after I obtain my desired results?
