      Comments about Viviscal Extra Strength Hair Nutrient Tablets:

      Although I wasn't able to take the product long enough to see if it would help with my excessive hair shedding, I can say the side effects were horrible! I took Viviscal for 2 weeks and developed really bad cystic acne. One pimple became infected and I developed a bacterial infection that has spread to surrounding lymph nodes. I'm still trying to clear the infection and may have to have the area lanced and drained. Use at your own risk!

          Comments about Viviscal Extra Strength Hair Nutrient Tablets:

          My hair started to thin and fall out after a thyroid condition and Botox injections in my scalp for migraine pain. I started to freak out! Then someone recommended Viviscal as an alternative treatment to all the drugs I take. BELIEVE ME, I WAS SKEPTICAL! After about 4 months, my hair started to grow...like weeds. It wasn't thick and luxurious like in a hair commercial. Don't get me wrong. It was the same texture and thickness that I had before, just growing again! Which was all I wanted.

          If you're looking for something to make your hair look like an infomercial then buy extension or a wig. If you want your hair to grow naturally, try this supplement. It does work.

                Comments about Viviscal Extra Strength Hair Nutrient Tablets:

                I only got 4 days into this supplement before I had to stop. I do NOT have a shellfish allergy, but perhaps I'm allergic to shark cartilage?...because I had an allergic reaction the very first day I popped one of these pills. The first day, my eyes began to feel itchy at my bottom lash line but I kind of brushed it off. The second day, I began feeling a general itchiness all over my body. On the third day, my eyes had a rash ring around both of my lash lines and my eyes turned a deep shade of purple. And my eyes were crazy sore. The fourth day, I took one more pill to see if my symptoms were connected to the supplement and my eyes increased in itchiness. I took Viviscal back to Ulta this morning for a refund - unfortunately there's something in it that just didn't jive with my body.

                    Tried this for 3 to 4 months. My hair had been thinning due to pcos and dieting. Decided to give viviscal a try out if desperation and easily being sold since the description of what it was suppose to do was a heaven send lol well i seen nothing different than what just plain biotin would do which is way cheaper. i did try sugar bear hair for same amount of months and other than softness for a minute it still is just over-hyped waaaay to much and so i will stick with my good ol biotin and healthy diet.

                              We recently updated our packaging and removed Extra Strength from the box. Although we revised the name, the Viviscal Supplements still contain the exact same formulation as they did when the packaging said Extra Strength.

                            Would this help regrow hair in an area that went bald? I had been loosing hair in one spot on top of my head for a few months and it's begun to grow back on it's own, slowly. But I am looking for something healthy (not full of harsh chemicals) that will help keep my hair healthy and growing in places it lost hair but also keeps it growing stronger. Would this be something one would recommend for bald spots or should I look into something else?

                              Viviscal will be a great option for you because the supplements are 100% drug free! It sounds like the hair is beginning to grow back in the areas that are bald, so it's not permanent hair loss that you are dealing with. Viviscal Supplements promote growth where it has temporarily slowed down or stopped. The supplements contain AminoMar™ marine complex that supplies vital nutrient needed to help maintain normal healthy hair growth.

                              There are slight variations in the ingredients! Both Viviscal and the Viviscal Professional Supplements that are available in Salon Centric contain our proprietary ingredient AminoMar. Viviscal Professional, however, contains more AminoMar per supplement and also contains Apple Extract, L-Cysteine and L-Methionine.
