About JuveTress

HighYa Staff Published on: Oct 5, 2017

JuveTress is a doctor-designed line of at-home products that uses a blend of polyphenol-rich natural extracts to help improve hair volume, shine, length, thickness, strength, and usefulness, regardless of your age or gender.

Specifically, the website reports their formulas can reawaken and revitalize aging follicles by accessing the power of stem cells, leading to hair that looks more gorgeous and youthful than it has in years.

They claim some ingredients are so useful that they’ve even been shown to work twice as well as hair regrowth formulas you’ll find in stores—and even more effective than a single hair transplant procedure. Just:

  • Apply JuveTress’ formulas all over your scalp using the precision applicator once daily. Be sure to concentrate on problem areas.
  • Using your fingertips, massage into your scalp for approximately 30 seconds.

If you’ve researched other online-only hair restoration products, you might recognize that many of these claims—while substantial—aren’t necessarily unique. But when it comes down to it, do JuveTress’ polyphenol-based formulas represent one of the most revolutionary hair restoration treatments in the last 25 years, as noted in the promo video?

In this article, we'll cross-reference the company's claims with what we learned from third-party resources during our research so that you can answer this important question. Before diving in, though, let’s discuss the root of the problem.

What Causes Thinning Hair?

Interviewed for a WebMD article, Wendy Roberts, MD, a dermatologist at a private practice in Rancho Mirage, CA, likens hair to a garden. And as with plants, if something goes awry during the growth cycle, this can lead to hair loss.

What can cause this interference? Dr. Roberts calls the causes “dynamic,” including everything from genetics and medical conditions to grooming practices and styling habits. But what about the dormant follicles frequently mentioned in the JuveTress long-form video?

As we outline in Everything You Need to Know About Hair Supplements, all follicles go through a dormant (catagen) stage during their life cycle where growth stops, and the hair eventually falls out.

Often, though, these types of products are formulated to address male and female pattern baldness. Here, a hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) ‘attacks’ hair follicles, causing increasingly thinner hair until it stops producing altogether. According to the Mayo Clinic, this is the most common cause of thinning hair.

While more is discovered each day, they also emphasize that hair loss isn’t fully understood by the medical community, so there’s currently no cure. But is there clinical evidence indicating that JuveTress’ ingredients can help?

Which Ingredients Are Found In JuveTress’ Products?

According to Paula Begoun, beauty expert and author of Beautypedia.com, “All shampoo is essentially a cleanser. Only the first five or six ingredients impact the formula’s effectiveness.”

As a result, we’ve only included the first six ingredients in each of the three JuveTress formulations below.

Revitalizing Hair Therapy

This acts as the center of the company’s hair care system, as it’s “designed to help revitalize thinning, aging hair at the root level” using an advanced blend of polyphenol micronutrients.

You’ll need to massage a quarter-sized dollop into your entire scalp twice daily, and leave in for about 30 seconds. Then, drink a full glass of water, as we’re told this will “keep hair-growth cells hydrated and working at peak performance.” This could lead to improved hair in as little as a day, although full results are more likely to be evident after 90 days of continuous use.

This easy-to-use, mess-free formula contains:

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Trideceth-6, Propox Tetramethyl Piperidinyl Dimethicone, C11-15 Pareth-7

According to authoritative sites like Truth In Aging, Paula’s Choice, and EWG.org, these ingredients work mainly as conditioning agents (aloe barbadensis leaf juice, propoxtetramethyl piperidinyl dimethicone), emollients (cetearyl alcohol), cleansers (cetrimonium chloride), and emulsifiers (trideceth-6, C11-15 pareth-7).

What about the polyphenols referenced on the JuveTress website? Redensyl is a proprietary formulation from Vitalize that’s made up of green tea leaf and larch wood extracts. While the manufacturer claims it’s been shown to stimulate hair follicles and be clinically proven to deliver two times better results than Minoxidil, they don’t provide any citations on their website.

Furthermore, you’ll notice that these are the 14th and 16th ingredients on Revitalizing Hair Therapy’s list. And as we learned from Paula Begoun earlier, it’s unlikely that anything outside of the fifth or sixth ingredient will meaningfully impact hair.

Restructuring Hair Wash

A cleansing product that also helps hair maintain strength, thickness, and luster, without stripping moisture. It includes the following essential ingredients:

Deionized Water, Sodium Lauroyl Methyl Isethionate (Plant Derived), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Methyl Oleoyl Taurate, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (Plant Derived), Cocamide MIPA

Relying on these same sites, we learned that all of these first ingredients work as surfactants; that is, they help boost cleansing power.

This formulation also contains Redensyl, but its constituent ingredients (larch wood and green tea leaf extracts) are further down the list at 25th and 35th, respectively.

Restorative Hair Conditioner

If you’re experiencing dry, damaged, or thinning hair, this formula promises to hydrate and deliver a fuller, denser look and feel. The contains the same Redensyl ingredient found in the Revitalizing Hair Therapy, in addition to:

Deionized Water, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Sodium Metabisulfite (Antioxidant), Larix Europaea (Larch) Wood Extract

Of all JuveTress’ formulations, their Restorative Hair Conditioner is the only one that contains any part of the frequently promoted Redensyl within the first six ingredients (larch wood extract). The second part of the proprietary ingredient (green tea leaf extract) is listed close behind at ninth.

The other top ingredients are emollients (cetyl alcohol), conditioning agents (stearyl alcohol, glycerin), and preservatives (sodium metabisulfite).

Will the Ingredients In JuveTress Cause Side Effects?

Unless you’re especially sensitive, these same sites report that these ingredients likely won’t cause any side effects. And if so, they likely won’t be worse than mild redness or irritation (no specific dosages or circumstances noted).

How Much Does JuveTress Cost?

What you pay for JuveTress products, as well as which ones are available, depends on which website you purchase from. For example, here's what's sold at the Juvestress.com URL:

  • Revitalizing Hair Therapy (8 fl oz): $79
  • Restructuring Hair Wash (8 fl oz): $56
  • Restorative Hair Conditioner (8 fl oz): $70

However, only JuveTress’ Revitalizing Hair Therapy was available through their ThinningHairFix.com URL, and at the following prices:

  • 1-Month Supply: $49
  • 3-Month Supply: $129
  • 6-Month Supply: $240

All JuveTress products come with a 180-day money back guarantee, less S&H charges. To request one, customer service can be reached at 877-300-1806 or support@juvetress.com.

Who Is Dr. Hal Weitzbuch?

Dr. Hal Weitzbuch is a Calabasas, CA-based dermatologist and skin cancer surgeon who, according to his bio on the practice’s website, “specializes in diagnosing and treating diseases, tumors, infections, and age-related changes of the skin, hair, and nails.”

Before founding his practice, Dr. Weitzbuch obtained his bachelor's degree in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University, his master's degree in Applied Physiology and his medical degree from Chicago Medical School, and completed his dermatology residency at Cook County Hospital.

The JuveTress website also informs us that he’s “presented at many national meetings, has published in multiple peer-reviewed journals, and has received numerous awards.”

Are There Other Topical Hair Loss Systems Competing With JuveTress?

According to a 2016 IBISWorld Market Research Report, manufacturing of hair loss treatments represents a $4 billion industry, comprising well over 300 businesses. In a nutshell, this means you have a ton of options to wade through; everything from statically-charged fibers and transplantation surgeries, to over-the-counter dietary supplements to prescription-only medications.

Even if you’re only interested in non-prescription topical shampoos and systems like JuveTress, it’s still easy to become overwhelmed by all the options at your disposal. Top results on Amazon and Google Shopping at the time of our research included:

  • Rogaine (or the generic Minoxidil) Topical Solution
  • Pura D’or Hair Loss Prevention Therapy Shampoo
  • Nioxin System 2 Cleanser
  • OGX Anti-Hair Fallout Niacin + Caffeine Shampoo
  • Biotopic Natural Hair Growth Treatment
  • Keranique Hair Regrowth

And given the fact that these can range in price between $10 and $80+, how in the world can you simplify the process and make a more empowered decision? In How to Choose a Hair Loss Product, Even if You Don’t Know What to Do, we recommend:

1. Talking with your doctor. They can help identify the cause of your hair loss and, based on your diagnosis and extent, can recommend relevant treatments that might maximize your results.

2. Maintaining realistic expectations. According to the American Hair Loss Association, “American hair loss sufferers spend more than 3.5 billion dollars a year in an attempt to treat their hair loss. Unfortunately, 99% of all products being marketed in the less than ethical hair loss treatment industry are completely ineffective for the majority of those who use them.”

As such, if you’re expecting phenomenal results as soon as a product touches your scalp, you could be setting yourself up for disappointment.

3. Choosing an option. This is perhaps the toughest part of the process, as the best solution for you might not work at all for someone else, and vice versa. As a result, you might need to try more than one option before achieving satisfactory results.

This means that from a manufacturer perspective, you’ll want to shortlist only companies who price their products in line with the majority of the competition, provide robust refund policies with no restocking fees, don’t sign customers up for recurring shipping programs, and back up their claims with clinical support.

How does all of this stack up for JuveTress?

The Bottom Line About JuveTress

With a 180-day refund policy and no restocking fees listed on their site, JuveTress seems to stand behind their hair loss products in the event customers aren’t satisfied.

But at $56-$79 each, their products aren’t exactly inexpensive compared to the competition.

And based on what we learned earlier from beauty expert Paula Begoun, only the first five or six ingredients in a shampoo—most of which constitute surfactants, conditioning agents, cleaners, and preservatives in JuveTress’ formulas—are in high enough concentrations to be considered ‘effective.’

What about Redensyl? According to the system’s website, the only formulation that contains any part of this proprietary ingredient (larch wood extract) in the first six ingredients is the Restorative Hair Conditioner, which WebMD lists as having insufficient clinical evidence indicating it can provide any benefits in (or on) humans.

Furthermore, Redensyl’s manufacturer doesn’t provide any clinical support for the claims that it works twice as well as hair regrowth formulas you’ll find in stores, or that it’s more effective than a single hair transplant procedure.

Last, but certainly not least, we encountered little-to-no clinical evidence on sites like the National Institutes of Health’s PubMed directly linking polyphenols with improved hair growth or reduced hair loss.

In the end, if you feel like giving JuveTress’ products a try, it doesn’t appear you’ll lose much more than a bit of your time and perhaps return shipping fees. But if you’re looking to maximize both your time and your money, we might recommend that you start your journey by making an appointment with your healthcare provider.

    This is a scam and does not work. Do not buy this unless you want to lose money. They stated 90 days guarantee and then stated 180 and wanted more until I replied to say no refund. This is a scam product.

    I just received the shampoo and conditioner and really like the product because my hair looks and feels thicker and softer. If it helps prevent hair loss that would be an additional benefit.

    It works!

    I am an African American Woman and I have tried numerous other hair products over the past 5 years, including Minoxidil and every oil you can think of. After about 7 days of using JuveTress, I couldn't believe it, but I actually thought I saw hair growing in the thinning areas (on both sides of my head, the hair was thinning from years of relaxer use and abuse, I have been natural now for about 5 years, and I love it!). I started to pay more attention, and amazingly my hair is starting to grow in those areas - you can't even tell there was thinning! I've been using JuveTress for about a month now. I'm flabbergasted - JuveTress is an answer to prayer.

    Amazing

    This product is absolutely amazing! It’s everything and more. Before I start using JuveTress revitalizing hair therapy, my hair was thin and lifeless always breaking/falling out.

    Truth be told, after using this product, within the very first week my daughter told me how thick and full my looks. I was so elated. Oh and these guys got me stuck in drinking a glass of water on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    At last!

    • Northern California,
    • Jul 24, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    After four weeks of faithfully using JuveTress as instructed, my hair quit falling out at the rate it has been for 11 years! From the first use I’ve loved how my hair feels - silky and soft. In the past, I’ve used a lot of product to give my hair the appearance of fullness and body. Now I put JuveTress in my hair after shampooing, let it air dry, then style it with a flat iron, and it holds its shape nicely. I then add JuveTress to the roots. My scalp feels rejuvenated and clean, not dry and itchy. I am expectantly looking forward to new growth. At last, a product that works!

    Although I purchased this product a while ago, I have only just started to use it as I had to have it shipped to where I live overseas from Australia.

    Healthier look but not any hair hair growth

    I don't notice thicker hair but definitely healthier and noticing less hair loss. I feel my hair looks better and healthier, but not sure if it is really promoting new hair growth. I also think the bottle can be designed better as it is little hard to squeeze it when it gets low.

    Hair isn't growing out - just an inch long, at most

    • Osprey, FL,
    • Jul 6, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I was wildly enthusiastic at first, I gave it to my husband and son-in-law. It does give my hair more body for a few hours. But, it takes time to rub it in, especially twice a day. I have tired of the two times daily routine and use it only once a day because it takes awhile to cover my head.

    NOW, the big complaint, the new hair isn't everywhere, it is just in a few spots AND it never grows long. At the front, on my forehead, the new hair has always been about 1/2" long, that's all. Even at the crown of my head, it's always short hairs. Will it ever grow into actual normal hair?

      The bottle is impossible to squeeze with one hand. It takes two, leaning the bottle on the counter and using all my weight to squeeze it. If it was more like a toothpaste container, it would help. I can't begin to use it as suggested, and I have three bottles!

      Hi Darcy, my name is Nadia with Juvetress. I’m very sorry to hear that this was your experience! I want to note that loss of hair after you stop using Juvetress is not a typical side effect. As always, we ask that you consult a physician prior to starting any hair growth treatment to ensure that it is right for you. As everybody is different, we understand that our products may work for some but not others.

      We never want to make you feel like you wasted any money so we will always stand by our 90-day money back guarantee. Please feel free to reach out to me at nadia@juvetress.com, and I can get a refund process started for you right away. I look forward to hearing from you!
