Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Revitalize & Restore the most effective hair cleansing system on the market?
Hair La Vie has created an exceptional 21-ingredient, natural combination of active essential oils, extracts, proteins, amino acids and vitamins. We have already brought the best natural vitamin, hair mask, and serum to market, so it made sense for us to formulate the best natural hair shampoo and conditioner too. Revitalize & Restore Shampoo & Conditioner contains no synthetic fillers, no harsh sulfates and no parabens.
Our natural, 21-ingredient formula speaks for itself. We kept everything from the hair shaft to the ends of your hair in mind by including key ingredients like saw palmetto, keratin, peppermint oil, tea tree oil, argan oil, marula oil, jojoba oil and more. We have replaced potentially harmful chemicals found in commercial shampoos with healthier compounds and alternatives that work to give you the hair quality that you deserve.
How do I use Revitalize & Restore?
Use just like any other shampoo and conditioner pair. Make sure the massage the shampoo directly into your scalp down to the tips of your hair. Massage the conditioner onto the tips of your hair first then up to the scalp.
Are your products tested on animals?
Our products are cruelty-free and never tested on animals.
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 cleanse the scalp and hair. If you have traditionally used hair products that use silicones or other "coating" ingredients, it may take several washes to clear the hair of such residue, should it occur. During the transition phase, it may leave your hair feeling a little stiffer until it dries. Don't worry, this is a great sign that your hair is strong and healthy. Once it dries, it will be soft without any feeling of 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 small amounts of natural oils (argan and marula) that help moisturize the hair and scalp.
Are their harmful 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 a harmful sulfate like you're used to hearing about. This ingredient helps fight frizz, making it easy to comb through your hair.
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 a mild natural blend which does not include toxic foamers like various harsh sulfates. Too much foaming can actually strip your hair of its natural oils.
What makes my scalp tingle when using the product?
The essential oils, specifically the peppermint essential oil, is what contributes to the tingling sensation.
Do you recommend a cold water rinse for the conditioner?
A cold water rinse is always good for the hair. The cold water helps to smooth the hair shaft and seal it closed.
Will I see results right away?
Since this product is designed to continually rejuvenate your hair, the results become more and more pronounced with use. There may be a transition period, depending on how the current product differs from previous products. However, with repeated use, your hair will feel revitalized and strong, starting at the roots. It will look lustrous and feel full as well. A lot of the focus begins at the root, to support the overall strength and health of your hair.
Will these products help support my existing hair growth?
