We Tried It: Revela Hair Serum Review

I have very fine hair and I always have it. It is curly and dry, so it breaks easily at the ends. Once my hair reaches a certain length (about mid-chest) it basically stops growing. I also use very little product and hesitate to add any to my routine. This however changed when I accepted an eight week trial period. Revela Hair Revival Seruma new product formulated to stimulate hair growth.

There are many misconceptions about hair regrowth that companies are capitalizing on. Revealed is not one. For example, women often suffer from hair loss after giving birth. Although hair usually regrows, these women often panic and buy regrowth solutions. “We try to find women who have suffered from hair loss or thinning hair for a long time,” says co-founder and CEO Evan Zhao. “We want people who take their hair seriously and who will put in the effort”

After battling super thin hair for a lifetime, I took on the challenge of testing Revela’s Hair conditioning serum. My trial period is now over and I was pleasantly surprised with the results.

The formula:

The concept behind Revealed came from a group of Harvard scientists who were working to combat the effects of cancer. “During the pandemic, we thought, Hey, those tools are really cool. Maybe we can use them to find better solutions for the things people care about.“, says Zhao. The company went for hair loss.

Zhao and his team identified ProCelinyl as the key ingredient after using artificial intelligence (AI) to sift through millions of possibilities. ProCelinyl effectively stimulates hair growth by awakening dormant hair follicles. There is a correlation between hair follicle cells and hair volume – how much you grow, how thick, etc. Below a certain threshold of these cells, hair will not grow. Once the threshold is reached, the more cells you have, the more hair you grow. Until you max out. For someone who already has the maximum level of follicles, ProCelinyl won’t do anything for them.

Revealed won’t eliminate the stress that drives up your cortisol levels – toxic to your hair – or regulate your nutrition. It focuses only on the follicle. Addressing these external variables on your own is a proactive way to reinforce the effects of Revealed.

My opinion :

As Zhao notes, hair regrowth is a very slow process and this is not a product meant for instant gratification. It won’t work for those who don’t work either. I applied the serum to my scalp along my part 1-2 times a day for eight weeks. I’m someone who struggles with consistency (I barely hydrate regularly), but luckily I was able to stay on track – that’s key.

After this period I started to feel a small number of baby hairs growing along my part and crown. My hair also seemed less prone to breakage towards the end of my trial period.



I don’t have any serious hair loss issues, but I believe I have a lower than normal hair follicle cell count. This product seemed to provide an adequate solution to the growth and general strengthening of my hair. I’m not a product junkie, so I’ll admit I was hesitant to apply a serum to my own head that claimed to regrow. Additional research coupled with Zhao’s expertise and my own experience eased my hesitation regarding this specific product.

I implore anyone studying this product (or suffering from hair loss) to do their research first. It’s not a one-size-fits-all solution – consider the other factors involved and make sure you meet the criteria for using the product. Zhao’s explanation, although he didn’t water it down, made me feel better about my own use. Overall, I think this product is one of the best (and most realistic) solutions available for hair regrowth.
