|Hey guys, glad to have some help!
I've had this lavender plant for a week now, and I can't revive it from the heat I exposed it to on the car ride home. I've re-potted it in moisture control soil and watered it. I've been giving it regular sunlight and haven't been giving it too much attention, but the tops are still drooping. Some of the leaves are turning grey. WHAT SHOULD I DO?!

Between the car ride and the replanting it looks like you really, really shocked it. For now, the best thing is to give it time. When the soil is dry down to the depth of your finger, water it thoroughly so that water comes out the bottom. Find it a place outside (under a tree, on the patio) that it gets part shade. Lavender are sun plants, but a little shade is probably a good thing right now.
Do not fertilize.
The gray leaves are dead. You will most likely lose the flowers on top, most of the leaves and some of the branches. Just cross your fingers and keep caring for it. With luck, you will see new growth along the stems fairly soon.
