Hi all! I’m back!
I hope you all enjoyed my February favorite… crazily enough it is now time for my March pick. (Is it just me, or is time flying by?)
For my entire life I have been part of the super-thin-hair club, and it has pretty much been the bane of my existence. As a full-blooded Italian, you?d think that my genes in that department would have been a little more fruitful, but alas. Such is my life.
Ever since I?ve gotten into the beauty world, I?ve tried everything to thicken my hair; powders, vitamins, dimensional hair-coloring that is supposed to add the appearance of volume, even the occasional clip-in! (Having a hair-stylist in the family has been immensely helpful in all of my endeavors. Thank you Rachel! #shamelessplug)
These various tactics would work for an afternoon or a special event, but the next morning I?d wake up and have to start the fight all over again.
Because my hair is so thin, extensions are out of the question ? I?m scared to death that if any damage happens to the hair I do have, I?ll be left bald!
What on earth is a girl like me supposed to do?
As it turns out, Viviscal Professional is the hair-secret that all models and celebrities take advantage of. (When you think about it, their hair takes more abuse than anyone, and their diets might not lead to the healthiest hair situations?) Viviscal has been around for 25+ years, and for real — if you Google ?Viviscal celebrities? you will be amazed at the A-listers that are using this product.
What is it?
Viviscal Professional Tablets are a scientifically formulated tablet that ?promotes hair growth from within.? Viviscal reduces the shedding process, allows for more growth, and as a fringe benefit also helps with your nails and eye-lashes.
Why should I take Viviscal?
If Lauren Conrad, Reese Witherspoon and Gwyneth Paltrow aren?t convincing enough for you, there is also a ton of clinical data backing up this product.
Viviscal Professional has been around for the past 25-years, and has been proven to work by 7x different clinical studies. (The most recent study showed that with the proper use of Viviscal Professional there was a statistically significant reduction in hair shedding and a statistically significant increase in hair thickness over a six-month period.)
Who should use Viviscal Professional?
Anyone! If you are concerned about thin (or thinning) hair, there is no reason to not try Viviscal Professional. Many women (obviously) use it, but there a ton of male patients who swear by it for helping prevent a receding hairline, and thinning hair.
Who shouldn?t use Viviscal Professional?
This might not be the best choice for you if you are allergic to fish or seafood, or if you?re pregnant, nursing, or under the age of 18.
When do you take the tablets?
To get the best results, Viviscal Professional is supposed to be taken twice a day, morning and night. (Ideally it should be taken on a full-stomach, but if you?re sometimes lazy like me and take it on an empty stomach ? this won?t give you a stomach-ache or anything.)
I?ve seen ?Viviscal? at the drugstore, what?s the difference between that version and what you are taking?
Great question! The over-the-counter version found at drugstores is half as potent as the ?Professional? version I am taking. Although it might be a little less expensive at the drugstore, I?d rather pay a little bit more to get twice the results, twice as fast.
But?. seriously, how does Viviscal work??
I?m not going to pretend to understand why their blend of ingredients works the way it does ? but I will enjoy my results regardless ? however if you are interested in the science aspect, the Viviscal experts explain it like this:
Viviscal Professional supplements nourish hair from the inside out, providing follicles with essential vitamins and minerals for healthy hair growth from within.
Viviscal Professional ingredients include the proprietary AminoMar? marine complex, plus a blend of vital nutrients ? including Biotin, Vitamin C and Apple Extract Powder (Procyanidin B-2) ? that nourish thinning hair and promote existing hair growth from within.
When will I start to see Viviscal results?
It can take up to 4-months to see your maximum results, but I felt like I could see (and feel) a difference after 2-weeks. Obviously the early success makes me excited, and ensures that I?ll keep up this routine in order to get the best, thickest, longest hair possible.
Until they start making a Latisse shampoo and/or conditioner, I?m hooked on Viviscal.
What are your results really like?
I?ve been taking Viviscal Professional religiously now for the past 2-months, and my hair definitely feels longer and thicker.
Do I suddenly have super-thick Victoria Secret model hair? No.
But I have noticed that there is less hair in my shower-drain, my wispies around my face seem to be getting long (and thick) enough to pull back easily, my nails are growing like crazy, and my eyelashes are also longer and thicker.
After starting to see my results, I understand why so many people are buying Viviscal Professional in bulk — they want to make sure they always have it on hand!
I?ve taken fish-oil supplements in the past, and I hated the taste?
Don?t worry! Viviscal DOES NOT give you the dreaded fish-flavored burps. Personally I don?t think it has any taste, but my friend swears that it tastes like mashed-potatoes.
Ok. I?m interested. How much?
Viviscal Professional is $59 (plus tax) for 60 tablets, which if you take as directed ? should last you 1 month.
