Comments about Viviscal Extra Strength Hair Nutrient Tablets:

I notice a difference in overall hair health. I have to color some grey, and also have balayage. My hair length is close the middle of my back and I am 45, so it isn't easy to keep it healthy with color, highlights and heat tools. My nails also look the best they ever had with these. The first time I took them it seemed that my hair grew faster. I am not noticing that now, but it could be that my hair is not in the growing phase. I took a star off because they are expensive and I haven't noticed better growth this time. I will say that I did not follow the directions exactly. I took them for a month-once or twice a day, took a break and started again in a few weeks. I stopped for a few months and then started up again. I am on my 2nd pack-second session.

          Comments about Viviscal Extra Strength Hair Nutrient Tablets:

          I have been taking Viviscal for 5 months now and I have noticed a difference in my hair. After reading a lot of reviews, I decided to try it. For me, I never got any breakouts. I read in a few reviews that it caused breakouts, but I didn't experience that.

          I took one pill a day and after a week or so I stared with two pills a day. For my hair, it wasn't a dramatic difference, it took a while. But I have noticed maybe 2 inches. For my hair, it takes forever to grow, so I am happy with this.

          I also read in reviews that it causes their hair to get greasy, I also didn't experience that. I'm giving it four stars because although I have experienced some hair growth, it wasn't super dramatic but I will keep taking Viviscal because I do believe it is helping a bit.

                  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.

                            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.

                                Great question! Viviscal is not the same as a fish oil pill, and many people do not experience any type of aftertaste or fishy taste. However, people’s experience taking supplements can vary depending on their individual situation. We’d always suggest that you take the supplements with food and a full glass of water.

                                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.

                                Ulta and other retailers occasionally offer varied pricing on Viviscal Supplements. This variation in pricing does not mean the product is older or not genuine.

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.
