Around the middle of 2020, I began to lose my hair. My once unmanageable thick, long locks began breaking off at the root, and even more alarmingly, shedding in clusters without signs of regrowth. Like many others, pandemic-related stress was likely the main culprit for my thinning scalp (though attempting to bleach my hair with the confidence and skill of a five-year old probably didn't help, either).

For the next several months I chose to be willfully ignorant about the issue, until Revitalash Cosmetics — the brand famous for its Meghan Markle-approved lash growth serum — offered me a sample of its newly launched thickening shampoo. Already a fan of the brand's shopper-adored brow growth product, I agreed to give it a go with the hopes that it would bring my strands back to life. Fortunately enough, it did.

Made from a special blend of lipids, biotin, and green tea extracts (which the brand uses in its brow and lash serums, too), the Revitalash Cosmetics Thickening Shampoo works to repair and strengthen broken and brittle strands while preserving length and fullness. Thanks to nourishing additions like flax protein and jojoba oil, the shampoo also gently removes dandruff, oil, and product buildup from the scalp without stripping away moisture.

I incorporated the shampoo, along with the accompanying Thickening Conditioner, into my shower routine three times a week. Following the directions, I massaged a dime size amount into my scalp and waited for about ten minutes before rinsing it out. The short-term result? Immediately bouncier, brighter waves that looked freshly blown out (even though I don't actually own a blow dryer).

After about a month of consistent use, I noticed that the thinning patches around my temples had sprouted soft baby hairs when I was putting my hair up into a ponytail. Two months later, it was as if I'd never lost that hair at all. Now that I'm through my second bottle, it's clear that Revitalash Cosmetics' shampoo is responsible for doubling my mane's thickness — so of course I'm recommending it to just about anyone who will listen. If you're interested in getting in on the magic yourself, grab a bottle at Amazon or Nordstrom for $36.
