Viviscal Hair Loss in Women Survey & InfographicEstimates state that nearly 60 million Americans experience some form of hair loss or thinning hair. Hair loss, while typically associated with men, is almost equally prevalent in women. Some estimates state that nearly 30 million women have some form of female pattern baldness – from mild thinning to severe hair loss.
Sonia M, New York, NY.After going through some very emotional and stressful times I realized that my hair would be affected by it. From that I noticed hair loss and it brought me to tears. I decided to take care of the problem full on. I started Viviscal, taking two tablets per day and I stopped looking in the mirror. I let Viviscal do its magic, within few weeks I had less hair loss. Now I have both benefits of Viviscal- hair loss has stopped and new hair is growing. Hair is an integral part of a woman’s perception of herself and of her mental and physical health. The stress is still there but it is so much easier to cope with when you look good. Thank you Viviscal for giving me my smile back.
Health Issues, Hysterectomy and Hair LossI was suffering from an abundance of over enlarged tumors in my uterine. For years I was losing hair at a rapid speed. I was finally diagnosed and needed complete hysterectomies. Still afterwards the hair loss continued during menopause. The hair fell out in handfuls, completely thinned out and never really grew. I was watching WGN am news one day when a hairstylist was sharing her Viviscal product info. It has been 7 months now and not only does absolutely no hair fall out, but it grows long, I feel great! I'm so happy to have pretty hair again! I thank you, WGN news, and the pretty hair stylist from the show.

Birth control pill and your hairI had an issue a couple of years ago with a birth control pill; needless to say it caused a lot of medical issues! One of which was hair loss. I went off that pill and my body was slowly getting back to normal, but my hair didn't seem to be recovering. I don't have a lot of hair to begin with and it's fine, but Viviscal helped the hair grow back AND my hair is much stronger. There is less in my brush too. My eyelashes and nails are also thicker! I love it and still use it.
Layna F. ~ Fishkill, New York, NYI have suffered from hair loss since age 28 and now I am 49 years old. It was quite devastating to say the least. I had gorgeous hair and earned a living doing shows as a Barbie I have suffered from hair loss since age 28 and now I am 49 years old. It was quite devastating to say the least. I had gorgeous hair and earned a living doing shows as a Barbie lookalike for children. I mainly lost hair in the front and on the sides but for the most part my hair loss was all over.
After seeing several doctors and spending a large amount of money I finally found a doctor that not only controlled my hair loss but even grew it back. I’ve been under his care for the past 20 years. I maintain my hair by daily drops and quarterly shots. Even if I tried every few years to wean myself off these medications, my hair fell out very fast and I was back to where I started. I’ve tried several vitamins too and since I’ve started Viviscal I’ve noticed a difference like never before. When I started taking the supplement I thought it would be like other vitamins thinking that it wouldn’t work but to my surprise I saw new growth and I was totally amazed. Who would think that anything could work in this point of my life? My hair is stronger and I have short hairs sprouting out like crazy. You name it, I’ve tried it. I did a spot on the Today show for women’s hair loss and still wasn’t sent down a road that could help me. I have my friends taking your supplements with some being males. I’m so happy I’ve found you and look forward to growing with you :)

Deborah A. Colorado Srpings, Co.I had been teaching overseas in Europe , Kuwait, Kosovo and Afghanistan for over seven years, and when I returned to the States, my hair was like straw! It had been long and fairly healthy, but now it was dry and brittle. I cut it in a bob, hoping to refresh it, but it was still lack-luster and it would not grow. Two years later, it had not even grown an inch! I started reading about models using Viviscal, and I decided I wanted that. I searched the web, and found it was available, of all things, at Walgreens. That was the first time I ever bought it and immediately saw benefits! My hair started growing again, almost immediately, and it was shiny! I've ordered it on-line since then, and I get it at Ulta. I buy it for my sisters and my Mom, and we are NEVER out of it! Even when I went off to China to teach last year, I made sure I had my stash of Viviscal with me!! Your Loyal Devotee, Deborah A.
Barbara H. Ridge, New York, NYA few years ago I had to have a total hysterectomy due to tumors. A very scary time in my life. Since then I've gone through menapause and thinning hair. This year was the worst due to having to have anesthesia three times for spine injections. I heard about Viviscal and started it several months ago. I have my daughters wedding in October and when my other daughter got married in January, I was horrified at how I looked in her wedding photos. After using Viviscal for several months my hair has improved so much. It's healthier and has also grown back some, in 2 and 1/2 more months it should be perfect for her wedding. Thank you soooooo much Viviscal.
Tabatha CoffeyTabatha shares her experience of losing hair after the death of her mother.
Linda Jo, Olney MDI was laid off 3 years ago and decided to reinvent myself: new job and new look! I returned to teaching first grade Spanish, which I LOVE, and went back to my auburn hair. The new look and job rescued me - muchas gracias to Viviscal for making this new look possible
I am so excited!I have only been using Viviscal for about 6 months but already have new growth. I am so excited! I'm a 55 year old female and my hairline started to thin-out noticeably just in the past few years. When I saw an ad I gave it a try. I don't have any before & after pictures but I have wispy new hair coming in from above my ears to the top of my forehead. I am convinced and will recommend Viviscal to anyone who needs it and I already have to my 22 year old son who is starting to go bald.
Julie C Boise, Iadho - Talk about stress!My name is Julie C. from Boise, Idaho. I do not have a "before" picture to show you, but I do have a current picture and would like to share my story. I was laid off from my job in December of 2010, just 3 weeks before Christmas. I had worked for the company for 2 months short of 15 years.
Talk about stress! Here it was Christmas, I have 3 kids that I of course want to provide a wonderful Christmas for, and to top it off, my husband Kevin had not worked for sometime due to a work disability. I thought I would find a job right away with all of my experience even in a bad job market. It took me five months to land a position that would offer a salary close to what I was making at my previous position. I thought things would get better, and they did, but little did I realize the stressful situation I was in again. I was working at least 12 hours a day, (most of the time late into the evening). My hair started thinning in the front and I was freaking out!
I decided it was time to see my family doctor for my work related stress (along with thinning hair came stomach pain, and inability to sleep at night even though I was exhausted). I was flipping through a magazine in my doctors office and saw an ad for Viviscal. I even asked my doctor about it and they had told me they had heard really great things about the product and I should certainly give it a try. After my appointment, I went straight to the the store to find your product. I started taking it the very next day and after about 10 days I started to notice that my thinning hair was not so thin anymore! I faithfully continued to take Viviscal and it was really making a difference! Now my hair is back to normal for the most part, but I continue to take Viviscal as I noticed that my hair has grown in thicker than it originally was before I was laid off. I am so thankful and appreciative for your product and have told my friends about it as they all saw how stress can not only affect you mentally, but also affect your physical appearance as well.
I wish I had a picture to show you the difference that Viviscal has made with my hair, but in no way was I allowing anyone to take my picture when my scalp was showing!!!!
Adrienne M, Durham NC - Breast cancer survivorI was diagnosed with stage 3A breast cancer in late 2006. After successful chemotherapy, mastectomy and reconstructive surgeries, and radiation treatments, I decided not to put any more chemicals on my hair. I started a natural hair care journey that exposed how much damage I was doing to my hair by using excessive heat to straighten out the kinks. I've been using Viviscal for 1.5 months and I've noticed thicker, fuller hair.
Jennifer M. Ft Myers FlMy hair has been extremely damaged since I decided to go blonde then back to dark. Then I tried to straighten it, and basically ended up with severely damaged hair that fell out when you touched it. I am not kidding. It just broke off in handfuls when I brushed my hair. It was a mess. I say was because now my hair is so much stronger. I can brush my hair and even wear it in a ponytail without having my hair fall off. When I was at a conference with Jeana from Deals4Dummies she was amazed out how much of my hair coated the bathroom floor and she felt sorry for me.
That day we went to the conference and met one of my most favorite people in the world, Kristie from Lifes2good, the makers of Viviscal. She gave me a two-month supply of Viviscal about a month ago. Now, four weeks later I am thrilled to say I can run my fingers through my hair right out of the shower. No tangles, no hair loss, no breakage. It is awesome and so relieving not to have to worry about losing my hair. I had got a hair cut right before I started taking the pills so I would be able to measure my hair growth. In a short month my hair has grown just under 2 inches. That is CRAZY TALK. My hair normally grows a 1/2 inch a month along with the rest of the population. I knew that Viviscal promoted that you could have around 2″ of growth so I was okay with letting my hair dresser cut off quite a bit, and now it is right back to the length is was before my hair cut. Simply amazing.
Samantha K, San Francisco, CAI am 24 years old, and never had thick hair, as shown by the before image from when I was in high school. Incrementally since I was in high school it has gotten thinner and thinner. I have seen several doctors and specialist whose only advice has been that my hair loss is hereditary and there is no hope for salvaging it. I am at a point where I no longer go in swimming pools for fear of others seeing my hair wet. I stare longingly at other women and even men who have so much more hair than me. I try to convince myself that appearances are not what is important, but feel as if with each strand I lose a bit of my confidence goes with it.
Anna Marie, White Plains, NYI'm a victim of female pattern baldness, but it was chemotherapy that really caused my fine hair to be what it is now . There are techniques out there I cannot afford. My hair is fairly strong and healthy, just thin. I was diagnosed at 35 years old. I need my life back.
Michelle K, Via FacebookI just went to get my haircut. I've been taking Viviscal for almost 3 months and I've had 2 inches of regrowth since my last color, amazing! My hair is still not thicker and fuller yet, but I believe it will be after 3 more months of taking your product
Dr. Laura BermanThere are numerous reasons why people lose their hair. As we shed a spot light on hair loss during Hair Loss Awareness Month and its affects on people, in particular women, we discover that the psychological impact can be just as detrimental as the root causes. However, the objective of Hair Loss Awareness Month is to provide encouragement to those suffering from the condition and show real stories of people bouncing back. People like Dr. Laura Berman, host of one of the most successful shows on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN); she shares her story about going bald after cancer. Known as a SEXpert, Dr. Berman states, "Our hair defines us: I'm no exception. My hair has been a central part of my image in the media and a source of my feelings of femininity and sense of attractiveness. Women are bombarded with media images of lustrous long locks that are supposedly the key to our beauty and sexiness. As a country, we spend billions of dollars on products and services, coloring, cutting and styling our hair".
KattI have lost hair after each of my pregnancies. It never grew back to its pre pregnancy thickness or health. So after two children and a miscarriage my hair was extremely thin, brittle, and limp. I was having to use Toppik on my front area daily. This was my last hope before seeking medical intervention. Thankfully this works wonders!!! After two months of usage my hair has grown a ton. Even my hairstylist has commented. Best of all my thin dry hair has body, lustre and is filling in. I have tons of baby hairs from regrowth already. It does make hair a tiny bit oilier, but for my dry hair it was a great thing! I plan on using this forever. – Katt
Stronger nails and thicker hairI have never had strong nails and have always kept them short. Yet, when I began taking Viviscal, I ended up with much stronger nails and thicker hair. I saw a significant change in my nails within one week of taking the vitamins. They grew quickly and were not as brittle as they had been before. Also, my hair began to thicken up and grow a little faster… Plus, whenever I shower I no longer have to pull several hairs from my fingers as I finish rinsing my hair. It has thickened and developed a new luster about it.
After three months, there is a differenceThree months ago, I told you about my pitiful hair. It has never been thick and luxurious, but I was able to make it look fuller with hair product and styling. After having kids, though, there wasn't much helping it. It became very brittle and very, very thin. I've used Viviscal for three months so far. The instructions state to use Viviscal for a minimum of six months so I wasn't sure if I would see any results yet. I'm thrilled to say that I have!
I definitely still don't have thick hair by any stretch of the imagination, but there is a difference. My hair is softer and less brittle and isn't as thin as it used to be. I'm planning to keep taking Viviscal the entire six months to see how much more improvement I can get because I'd still like it thicker. I'm pleased so far, though. And there was an extra bonus I wasn't expecting – stronger fingernails, which is really nice.
Scott Hurt40% of men experience noticeable hair loss by the age of 35. Genetics are often to blame for causing thinning hair and baldness in men. Scott Hurt, a university administrator has always had extremely fine hair. Scott, now 40 has watched his hair become noticeably thinner as he has gotten older, which make both of the previous hair loss statistics true for him. Scott's need for Viviscal came not from normal hair loss or genetics. Scott's need for Viviscal came when a trip to the salon for a hair color treatment turned out for the worse. Hair loss was no longer his only worry, a severe chemical burn and scalp irritation left his hair and head damaged. At the recommendation of a friend, Scott began using Viviscal and all hair was not lost. Scott shares his story below.
Q: When did you first begin using Viviscal?
A: I used Viviscal for the first time in February of 2011, so it's been a little over a year now that I've been using the products.
Q: What caused you to need to use Viviscal?
A: I had recently had my hair colored and the stylist burnt my scalp. My hair was coming out rapidly. My head was red, flaky and problematic.
Scott (right) before Viviscal
Q: Did you have thinning or hair loss prior to the hair coloring incident?
A: I've always had really fine, thin hair and as I've gotten older it has gotten thinner. However, due to the chemical burn from the stylist the thinning had become the least of my worries. I went to a dermatologist and none of the prescribed medicines worked.
Q: Were you doing anything to deal with your hair loss prior to trying Viviscal?
A: When my hair line started to recede and I developed a noticeable bald spot in the back of my head, my stylist said coloring would help blend the hair with the coloring of my scalp. So I began coloring my hair. I've also tried medicated shampoo and conditioners, scalp treatments and a daily follicle booster. However, after the burn my head and scalp was even more irritated by the medicated shampoo and conditioners. I noticed a very slight difference in my hair, but nothing significant. My hair was still shedding. I had hair falling out in the sink, on my pillow and in the bathtub.
Q: How long after you began taking Viviscal did you began to notice a difference in your hair and damaged scalp?
A: After about a month of use, my hair was back to normal. After only two weeks of using Viviscal, my scalp healed, the irritation went away and I also noticed less hair shedding on my pillow and in the shower.
Q: Do you have a daily Viviscal routine?
A: I take the vitamins once at lunch and once at dinner. When I ordered the vitamins, I also ordered the shampoo and conditioner, which I use every day and really enjoy. I truly believe it helped slow down the thinning of my hair and nourishes the hair I have left.
Q: Anything else you would like to share with our blog readers?
A: I've been using Viviscal for over a year now. I'm very pleased with all the products. I plan on continuing to use Viviscal. I have also experienced nothing but positive customer service! Shipping is fast and the products are always well packaged. I usually place my orders over the internet and the few times I've called in my orders and the agents are very nice and knowledgeable. I've recommended Viviscal to friends who've had hair complaints and I would recommend Viviscal to anyone who is concerned about their scalp and hair health.
"I think women need to talk about hair loss more, so others don't feel they have to hide under a hat or be embarrassed about it."
Samantha Khan – New York, NYHair loss is not just a man thing. Meet Samantha Khan, a 40 year young, New Yorker who works in the printing and design industry. Samantha began experiencing severe hair loss after an extremely rough year, health issues and increased stress. Samantha didn’t know what to do until she consulted her dermatologist, who recommended Viviscal as a solution. Listen in as Samantha opens up and shares her hair loss and hair re-growth success story.
Q: Why were you so open about sharing your hair loss experience with our blog readers?
A: I think women need to talk about hair loss more, so others don't feel they have to hide under a hat or be embarrassed about it.
Q: How do you normally wear your hair?
A: My hair is long, pass my shoulders and it grows to my middle back. I was forced to cut it shorter, up to right above my shoulder blades when I began experiencing the severe hair loss. I didn’t like it at all, I’ve had long hair all of my life and I prefer it long.
Q: What caused your hair loss?
A: A bad year, a lot of stress and a thyroid condition. My hair was falling out in clumps. I was having panic attacks in the shower because of the massive amount of hair that would end up on the floor after I washed it. The experience would freak anyone out. Because so much of my hair was falling out all at once, it was noticeable and embarrassing.
Q: When did you start using Viviscal?
A: Eight months ago, around October 2011. My dermatologist recommended it, after I had a few unsuccessful trips to my regular physician and a specialist. At first no one seemed to take my hair loss seriously. My dermatologist had been reading about Viviscal and recommended I give it a try to combat the massive hair loss I was experiencing.
Q: How long after using Viviscal did you notice a difference in your hair?
A: Two months into using the product, I noticed my hair stopped falling out. I’ve had no split ends since and it grows faster. Viviscal caused my hair to grow back fuller. My hair is healthier and shiny. I only get a trim two or three times a year, so for me not to have split ends is remarkable.
Q: What is your daily Viviscal routine?
A: I take two vitamins a day, one in the morning and one at night. I use the shampoo and conditioner every other day and when I remember, I use the hair scalp lotion.
Q: What have been your overall results?
A: After a few months of using Viviscal, I was able to grow my hair out long again. My hair is fuller, shinier, and healthier. Using Viviscal doesn’t interfere with coloring my hair and I’ve been extremely happy with the results. It’s the only thing that worked. I’m still using Viviscal regularly and now I’m afraid to stop because I’ve gotten such amazing results from using the products. I’ve recommended Viviscal to friends, family and people in online forums and chat groups looking for answers and solutions to their hair loss problems.
Q: Anything else you would like to share?
A: I’m glad I found Viviscal products. The products are fantastic, they have no smell, they don’t combat with any other routine products I use and they really leave your hair in good shape. Everyone has thick hair in my family and my hair is fine, but hair loss isn’t hereditary. I would have preferred anything else as a result of the stress I was under, acne, anything would have been better than my hair falling out rapidly. It’s uncomfortable to discuss and you’re not going to openly and candidly speak about the fact you’re experiencing hair loss as a woman. You do everything you can to hide it, while you try to figure out how to stop it and how you can go about repairing the damage. Hair loss in women is more common than I suspected. It’s not something that’s happening to one in a million of women, it is probably more like one in hundred if not less.
"Viviscal is worth the money and its reputation is pretty true to fact, it does what it says it’s going to do and that is more than you can say with a lot of products on the market now." Samantha Khan, Viviscal Customer
Sheryl GoldfederHair loss in women is a serious life altering condition that more and more women are experiencing. Instead of suffering in silence, women like Sheryl Goldfeder who have dealt with hair loss are sharing their experiences, so that other women are more comfortable dealing with their hair loss conditions, seeking help and finding hope. An episode of Dr. Oz changed Sheryl’s perspective about her hair loss condition and introduced her to her hair loss solution. Below Sheryl shares her entire story of how using Viviscal restored her sense of confidence with a healthier head of hair, shiny nails as well as fuller eyelashes and eyebrows.
Sheryl’s story: I saw the episode of Dr. Oz with Tabatha (I absolutely love her!) talking about Viviscal and she said point blank "that it really works!" Financially, I wasn’t in a position to really spend money on hair loss products and definitely not ones that didn’t show any results. I had been unemployed for over a year and just ended a temp job so I went back to being unemployed again! Which meant my budget was extremely tight. I took $199 from my emergency fund to buy the Viviscal extra strength. I knew if Tabatha and Dr. Oz were endorsing your product that it was the real deal. My hair had been thinning in the front top of my head, between the hair line and the crown for a long time and it started getting worse! It was noticeable, along with the thinning of my eyebrows and eyelashes. It was freaking me out!!
I wear my hair short to medium length. Normally, I like it spiked up, but after the thinning began, I started wearing my hair combed down in an attempt to camouflage the fact that I was losing my hair with different hairstyles. In addition to changing up my hairstyles frequently, I had also tried using other treatments and products, shampoos and conditioners which are said to combat hair loss. I only experienced minor results. No real difference was made in the thickness of my hair and nothing was making my hair grow back.
My six month supply of Viviscal extra strength arrived on January 26, 2012 and I started using it immediately. Taking Viviscal twice daily as directed, I started noticing a difference in my hair about six weeks later. I first noticed I had a little bit more eyebrows as well as fuller eyelashes. In six to eight weeks the hair on my head was getting thicker. As of today my hair is noticeably thicker on top where the thinning was. My eyebrows and eyelashes also have noticeable improvement. My nails have a shine to them and are smooth. My hair even has a wave to it that I love because I always wanted wavy hair! My hairdresser told me she noticed the difference in my hair as well. She said it was growing thicker and healthier and she couldn't believe it!! I told her to tell all her clients because I know the panic of watching your hair disappear! I’ve told a couple of friends about it as well.
You can’t go on an interview with thinning hair as a woman. I have been job hunting and when you are a women experiencing hair loss, you don’t feel comfortable going out of the house, let alone having to interview for positions. Your self-esteem is affected and you are worried about how your hair loss will be received by the people you come in contact with. I can't even thank Viviscal enough for your AMAZING product that really works!! What I love about Viviscal is that it’s natural, no chemicals, and the fact that it really does work. NOTHING has produced the results for me that the extra strength Viviscal has. I recommend this product to anyone with thinning hair and don't WASTE your money on anything else! It was a very worthwhile investment, under my circumstances at the time. I’m so impressed with the product. Finally a company comes out with a product that actually works. I really can’t say enough about how great this product is!
SusieThree months ago I started taking Viviscal. I was very excited to be able to try it because since being in my 30′s and after having 3 kids, I've definitely noticed thinning hair. I started out very committed but have to admit that by the 3rd month I wasn't as consistent. I've never been a very good pill taker and found that sometime's I forgot to take it. I think my hair overall grew about 2- 3 inches over 3 months, which seemed to be faster than average. I didn't find that the thinning spot near the front filled in any. But I did notice that less hair seemed to be falling out on a daily basis. I used to see handfuls when I took a shower but now it's just a few strands. Viviscal does say that it may take up to 6 months before you see complete results, with most users noticing a difference after just 3 to 4 months. So I think with prolonged use, in addition to faster hair growth and less hair falling out, I would see more hair fill in also.
After having Baby E......my hair had been falling out in clumps and generally looked awful. Within a week of taking two pills a day, my hair was already getting shinier and felt healthier. I could tell that my hair was growing because I was getting more tangles when trying to brush. The weird thing about my hair is that it never, ever tangles when its short but the longer it gets, the more tangles it gets. My husband even commented on the fact that my hair was so shiny a few weeks after I started taking the Viviscal! That says alot coming from him. Here is a picture of my before hair that my husband took. See how mousy brown it looks? I am a redhead. Like never dyed (not since 9th grade at least with that disaster of a bleach job) red hair. As I have gotten older and had kids though, its gotten darker and darker. You can see how dull and thin it looks here as well in the before photo. Does it not look better? This is even right after a cut and with the ends turned up! You can see how much longer and healthier it had grown! I have had so many compliments on my hair these last two months. I estimate that my hair grew at least 2 -3 inches and got noticibly thicker in the time I was taking Viviscal
So it's been 4 months......(wow has it flown by!) since I've had my beautiful baby girl Stormy and let me tell you how things have changed! Of course my life is crazy with baby, business (wedding season) home, and everything else we do on a daily basis that we take for granted until you have a baby and realize how easy you had it before. Now of all the changes that have happened in the last 16 weeks the one that has been the most shocking for me is my skin and hair which are super dry. Now my hair, "OH LAWD", my poor hair is having a break down. Now I know it's normal to lose hair after having a baby since you don't lose much while you're preggo. And I know that it's normal to lose about 100 strands a day. But when your losing clumps of hair that's a no bueno situation. Now seeing your hair fall out everyday after a while does take a toll, especially after having a baby and trying to get your body back and dealing with the stress of everyday life. The last thing you want to see while you're taking your well deserved shower and your first quiet time of the day is hair on your comb and all over you and the tub/shower floor. After seeing all this mess I was going to take a pair of clippers and have a Britney Spears moment but my family, friends, and hairstylist convinced me not to do it. But I did take off 4-5 inches of hair. Now it's to my shoulders. The trial with Viviscal has come to an end. Booooooo!!! But no wait no Booooo since it went very well and I'm going back for more. Why you ask and does it REALLY work? Well, I'm going back cause it really does work and I'm so happy with the results.
Before starting I cut about 4-5 inches of hair. I was left with my hair just touching the top of my back. Now my hair is at my shoulders and feeling healthy, soft, and shiny. I also noticed that my nails grew faster, longer, and stronger. My skin hasn't looked this clear and healthy in years and I have brows again!!
Alright here is the proof. Before and after pics left.

Annette S., Gross Point, MiMy hair first started thinning in 2010. By the summer, half of it had fallen out. It was also dry and brittle with a lot of breakage. It got to the point where I hated having to wash it because of the big clump of hair I would see covering the drain at the end of my shower. I was also feeling weak and exhausted all the time, having night sweats and losing a lot of weight. My doctor diagnosed me with hyperthyroidism. I was put on medication and everything was feeling better but MY HAIR!I started reading everything I could about hair loss and what could be done about it. One day, I came across an article in Vogue magazine which mentioned Viviscal. I bought some immediately and took 2 a day as instructed. It took a few months to notice the change but it definitely felt thicker and like it was growing in faster. I had to color my roots every 3-4 weeks instead of every 6-8 like before. WOW!! Now 2 years have gone by and I have grown in a full new heeds of thick shiny hair! Wow...what a difference!! People complement me on my hair and I've told all my friends about Viviscal. Thank you SO MUCH!!!
