Most Helpful Positive Review Be Patient!!!
I am half way through my 3rd month now, and the results are wonderful!! I'm 29 years old, and about a year ago, I noticed that I was loosing more hair than usual. I could not run my fingers through my hair without having at least one hair fall out. I started doing research on premature hair loss for women, and found many things I could change about my hair routine, vitamin intake, and diet that could help me with controlling my issue. I was patient and consistent, but the problem got worse and I got scared. I went to my doctor, and she could not find anything health wise wrong with me, however, she did recommend this product.
I have been taking this product for about 2 1/2 months now and I'm absolutely blown away. The first month, I did not see any changes in hair growth, but I did notice within the first week, my hair loss was minimum. I'm talking about going from a handful of hair in my shower drain, to maybe ten at most. Now, I might find three or four hairs in my drain after I wash my hair. The second month, I started noticing my hair looked and felt a lot healthier. I should add that I also started taking GNC womens daily vitamins, been eating more protein, drinking more water, working out, and switched my shampoo/ conditioner to Loreal daily repair 5, and I feel this has contributed to my success with viviscal. Now on my third month, and the hair growth is very noticeable. My hair also looks and feels thicker!!! I've read a lot of reviews on this product, and noticed some reviewers giving up after the first month because their hair did not grow 6 inches. Ladies, lets be realistic, also, be patient!! If you really want to get your hair back to a healthy state, there is not a magic pill to do that. You have to look at other factors that could be contributing to your hair issues. I can not wait to see how my hair looks after a year of taking viviscal. It really works!! hang in there. Give it at least 3 months to see dramatic results and be healthy all around. Good luck ladies!!
Most Helpful Critical Review overpriced - don't buy this
If you take Biotin, Zinc, and Iron supplements you will get more or less the same results as what you get with this product... at a fraction of the price!
Add Vitamin C and/or a women's multivitamin and you're good as gold.
Don't be fooled into thinking you have to go to the poor house to get your hair back! Read the label re: active ingredients and create your own vitamin regimen at a fraction of the price.
I'm not sold on the shark/mollusk powder (which you CAN'T get from the vitamin supplements listed above) being key to success... you can substitute cod liver oil (for example) for similar results.

Viviscal really works!!!
Caroline from Sorrento, BC
I'm 33, and have had my hair thinning on the crown of my head where I always wear my ponytail and around the edges of my face where the hair is pulled back into a ponytail, both receding quite badly. I bought the viviscal men supplements because that's all that was available at my store, and looked it up only to find it has MORE aminomar in it than the one for women. I've been taking it for three weeks, combined with wearing my hair down or in a low bun to give the area some breathing room. My hairline around my face has come back fully, and my crown has started thickening up. I didn't expect to see results for a few months, but am so relieved and excited with the results I had to leave a review. So worth trying if you're frustrated with your hair situation, and try to mix up the way you style your hair for added help. Really really made a difference for me !
I would buy this again for sure

works pretty well, my dermatologist recommended and I really like the results
the science is there but...
K~ from Idaho
I did my research and this product came up on the top several lists as effective. My problem is the the taste! The strong "old fish" odor/taste as soon as you popped it into your mouth made it a big NOPE for me. I couldn't swallow it down without a gag reflex kicking in.
Very strong fishy taste
Joan from Virginia
I have no idea if this works or not as I've only taken it a few days. But, it tastes nasty! The pill is large and has a strong fishy flavor. Hard to get down.
Stops Hair Loss

I have been taking these supplements for a few years now and it helps with hair loss.
been using this for years
fhr from Vero Beach, Florida
I can't say that it has made my hair grow or get thicker. It's just a vitamin. However, I have alopecia so I am almost afraid to stop using it for fear that if I stop, my hair will fall out. It's like being in a catch-22, darned if I do and darned if I don't. My suggestion is to NOT use them so that you are not stuck in the same catch-22 as I am. I honestly do not see any difference in my hair regarding speed of growth and I definitely have NOT seen my hair getting thicker or any new growth. I have been using Viviscal for over 6 years consistently and if I haven't seen any changes in my hair I can almost guarantee that you won't either. You are better off just buying generic 'hair, nail, and skin' vitamins at your local grocery store.
I WOULD DEFINITELY BUY THIS AGAIN

I have very dry mouth feel dizzy nauseated keep burping for no reason...I only drink water like all day eat pretty healthy exercise and as soon as I take these I feel horrible do not buy them nothing good can be in them. Making people feel this way
CB from Sacramento
When I'm stressed, I get this dry patch on my scalp close to the hairline. I used to pick at the big dry flakes and eventually would pull some hairs with it. I noticed thinning on that are. I started using the scalp treatment from a different company and I started taking viviscal. I can say for sure my hair grew more around that area and definitely made it shiny and long. I'm going to buy this again. No side effects. It has a weird after taste but I can handle it. This product worked for me
Marlyn from Tigard, OR
Love this product. Due to a thyroid condition I was losing my hair. Texture was brittle and lack luster. My hair would break before it would grow. Now I get compliments all the time. I now have the length I love and my curls back. I recommend to all my friends.
Less hair loss

I can't say my hair grew a lot more but it certainly stop shedding significantly.

An oral product, this is a great supplement if you have thinning hair not due to a medical condition. I had a terrible stressful job, bad marriage and bad menopause when I started taking this, some years back. It took awhile but I did see an improvement in hair volume not due to products or styling. When I have a major shock I tend to lose hair and this product taken consistently seems to minimize my hair loss. I do have a great head of hair that I didn't have years ago - my hairdresser talks about it and he sees hair all day long. I realized if I ordered this product from Ulta I would get the reward points so its a win-win for me.
Yes I would buy it again

Viviscal has seriously saved my hair. I've only been taking it for a month, but I can already see the difference. I was losing so much hair to the point of literal tears. I started shedding tremendously even with consistent biotin supplements. After a month of taking Viviscal I have a seen a decrease in shedding.
The only product I trust to keep my hair healthy
Em the gypsy from Montana
I use the shampoo, conditioner and elixir in addition to the supplements. This is my second time using the supplements my first time was after having postpartum hairloss after baby 2. It can take some time to work, the company suggests 6 months but I start to see solid results after about a month. If your hair problems are diet related this is going to be a miracle. The only con is that I sometimes forget to take that second pill.
Helped stopped my hair from shedding
Beth from Auburn hills, mi
Make sure you take it consistently and be patient. Dramatically reduced my hair shedding, even my hair stylist noticed the difference.
Caitlyn from Las vegas, Nevada
I used these for almost 12 months and other than softer hair I cannot say anything positive about these: no reduction in hair shedding and no new growth. Now taking Solgar hair skin and nails supplement (much cheaper!) and using divine herbal hair oil (from the UK) and my hair loss is under control and no longer an issue. I gave Viviscal more than enough time to work, seems like its just not meant for me.
Ajbnaz from Gilbert, AZ
My hair was thinning drastically at the crown. I could easily see my scalp! I have been using this for over 6 months and I'd say I've regrown at least 50% of it back. Hair is healthier looking and feeling. Would have given 5 stars but I want more hair 👍
Annie from Pennsylvania
I have been using this product for about 5-6 months now and have seen really good results—hair is thicker and slightly sparse areas;hair growth! Dispite my Alopicia and premenopausal state-if I did not use this product I feel my hair would be a lot worse off!
Very happy with this product!!
Ajbnaz from Gilbert AZ
I was struggling with thinning hair. Since taking this product I have seen regrowth and my stylist even asked what I was doing because she was noticing a difference in my hair growth and the feel of my hair. It does take at least 3 months to start seeing a change. I'm on my 4th month.
Melissa from Seattle, WA
Product works. My hair is thin and dry, and this has helped with thickness and growth. I've been using for over 3mo.
One of the best products i have found for thinning hair
Happy from CT
Since beginning a daily dose of Viviscal, I have seen a noticeable difference in my hair. It is stronger and thicker. I keep an eye out for specials as it is a little expensive for someone who is retired. I also look for coupons. ULTA seems to have the most reasonable price.
