Lissa Laffey-Tomich and Adrienne Massey – winners of the 2012 Great Hair Rescue Contest
Viviscal® wishes to congratulate the winners of the Viviscal® Great Hair Rescue Contest as part of Hair Loss Awareness Month, our national campaign to educate, inspire, and destigmatize the condition of hair loss and hair thinning – particularly among women.
The first-place winner is Lissa Laffey-Tomich from California. Lissa will receive roundtrip accommodations to New York City and a day at the salon of celebrity hairstylist Oscar Blandi. Lissa was gracious in her personal account of the psychological and physical impact of multiple factors like low thyroid, menopause and stress. She discussed how these problems contributed to losing quite a bit of her hair in what seemed to be a downward spiraling situation among correlated ailments and conditions.
Our second-place winner is Adrienne Massey from North Carolina who will receive a six-month supply of Viviscal Extra Strength. Adrienne shared the story of her personal battle and victory over breast cancer and the subsequent thinning of her hair from the cancer treatment. The experience led Adrienne to abstain from chemical hair treatments and pursue a healthy, natural hair lifestyle.
You can read more stories that were shared with us during Hair Loss Awareness Month from real people who are looking for ways to reverse their hair loss.
Thanks to all the participants of the contest who were willing to share their personal journeys with us.
