There is no shortage of shampoo out there—and yet—finding a formula that can truly refresh and revive strands can still feel like an uphill battle. That is, until the Ranavat Regenerative Veda⁴ Bond Complex Shampoo ($48) hit the shelves in fall 2022—and then immediately flew off those shelves with a seemingly never-ending waitlist of over 3,000. After much anticipation, the coveted shampoo is officially back in stock, and you’re going to want to add it to your cart before it’s gone again.
Inspired by Ayurveda (the company's founder, Michelle Ranavat, grew up practicing Ayurveda, which is a South Asian-rooted, holistic way of treating and healing the body) the Ranavat Regenerative Veda⁴ Bond Complex Shampoo features a first-ever Ayurvedic bond-strengthening complex that is clinically proven to repair strands with every application. Plus, it features some incredible ingredients like pink lotus, hibiscus, amla, ashwagandha, and sunflower seed oil, that work together to regenerate the hair, prevent fallout, provide deep nourishment and soothe the scalp to keep flakiness, irritation, and redness at bay.
While the shampoo focuses on damage and repair, the wonderful thing about a shampoo like this is that it can be used on all hair types. “Any hair type can benefit from strengthening shampoos as they’re formulated to nourish, hydrated, and strengthen the hair to aid in the overall health of the scalp and hair,” says board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Shari Sperling. She adds that those with fine hair or more breakage-prone strands might find a shampoo like this especially helpful since it can not only strengthen and protect but also “contains nourishing ingredients that will make the hair feel healthier and fuller.”
In addition to shampoo type, the Ranavat Regenerative Veda⁴ Bond Complex Shampoo is formulated with sunflower seed oil, which is a fabulous way to pump some life back into dry, dull strands, or maintain healthy hair overall. “Sunflower seed oil is rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals that can benefit the scalp and hair,” says Dr. Alpana Mohta, a certified dermatologist and medical advisor for BetterGoods.org.
“It’s very high in vitamin E, an antioxidant that can help protect the hair from environmental damage,” she adds. And, since it’s infused into a shampoo—meaning, it’s going to spend the most time on your roots vs. your strands—it can work wonders on the scalp, helping to moisturize and nourish the skin on your head, which Dr. Mohta says can promote healthy hair growth.
With its incredible formula, it only makes sense that the Regenerative Veda⁴ Bond Complex Shampoo has an equally stellar conditioner counterpart. The Ranavat Regenerative Veda⁴ Bond Complex Conditioner ($48) features the same powerful ingredients as the shampoo and works to provide even deeper nourishment to the strands with its creamy, moisturizing texture.
“Using a shampoo and conditioner that strengthens your hair can aid in hair development by fortifying the hair shaft, decreasing breakage, and cleansing the scalp,” says Dr. Anna Chacon, a board-certified dermatologist at MyPsorasisTeam of using a shampoo and conditioner duo like the Ranavat Regenerative Veda⁴ Bond Complex line. “While shampoo opens the hair’s cuticle, conditioner closes it, keeping the nutrients in and impurities out,” she adds, noting how this finishing touch can add additional strengthening benefits and help avoid damage, scalp breakouts, and even loss of hair.
Whether you’re on the hunt for the best strengthening shampoo and conditioner or have just a few squeezes left of your current hair cleansing and moisturizing duo, the Ranavat Regenerative Veda⁴ Bond Complex Shampoo and Conditioner are an absolute must-try (just ask the thousands of people who spent the last few months waiting for it to restock).
