Let me start off by saying that I have yet to meet a guy who doesn’t think he’s thinning. Now, if he really is or not, that’s a whole other issue!! Not that this post is directly just to the males, but since we’re on the topic, there’s something that I have been coming across more and more as I hop around different mags and talk to a number of stylists, and that’s Viviscal. Viviscal (which retails for $50 for a one-month supply) is a natural hair treatment that has taken Europe pretty much by storm, and has been celebs’ and models’ best kept secret until recently (you bastards were holding out on us, weren’t you?). Lately, it’s been getting an insane amount of press for its wondrous results. Among its advocates are Reese Witherspoon, mega stylists like Orlando Pita, Garren, Guido Paulo, and Danilo…even Vogue dubbed it “the miracle hair pill.”
But what’s in it that makes it so special? It’s main hair-growing factor is its proprietary AminoMar C Marine Complex that provides nourishment to thinning hair, and horsetail extract is a proven hair strengthener. Take it once in the morning and once at night, and it has clinically shown to work in four stages over a period of 4-6 months.
Celeb stylist Mark Townsend recently said, “Two of my clients shaved their heads for movies and then one of them took it—her hair grew back so much faster and even came in thicker. It’s not an overnight fix, but all of a sudden, three months later, your hair has grown two inches instead of one.”
I read about it a few months ago while working on some hair stories at a magazine and was totally intrigued. I decided to try it out for a few months just to see if it makes a difference — I really would tell you if I thought it was total BS but I can’t deny that my hair really feels healthier than ever (and that’s considering all the wear and tear — and recently, highlighting — I’ve been putting my hair through). The fact that it’s a 100% natural supplement makes me feel more comfortable recommending it as well. I’ve spoken to stylists who have said it mostly spurs hair growth for what you already have and I know in some cases there may be factors like genetics and health that might result a different effect depending on how severe your case is. But I guess the only way to really know is to try it. So I figure, now’s a great time for a giveaway :).
