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.

I bought this in hopes of a miracle. But, unfortunately for me it just wasn't meant to be. After two weeks I developed my first ever case of gout. Not sure what was going on I went to the doctor and was diagnosed. After going through any diet and medication changes I was told that the high dosage of AminoMar was the culprit! So, after discontinuing Viviscal and taking a dose of steroids I'm pain free. I guess I'll just have thin hair from now on.

I've been using Viviscal for about 6 months now and it's the only thing that works. I've tried every trick I heard of to get my hair back to where it was (lots of thinning and loss in 2020). Biotin didn't work, collagen didn't work, all kinds of different oils you could think of didn't work, a certain Australian growth shampoo made my hair more damaged than it was before I started using it. I tried rogaine after speaking to a dermatologist but didn't have any bald spots so didn't notice a difference. Finally I tried this as a last ditch effort and I was so happy something finally worked. The shedding is back to normal shedding and I don't have to unclog my shower drain all the time. My hair is growing and more importantly the thickness is back!! It does have that fishy taste but if you take it was a lot of water then you don't notice it as much. I'm really happy with the results and my stylist is amazed too.
Stick with it

I have thin curly hair and it was shedding horribly. Basically I thought I was going bald and I was trying everything. I have been taking these pills for about 7 months now. They do work but it takes time. Around month 4, my hair stopped falling out. It sheds but nothing like before. I think it takes time for it to build up in your system. Now I am afraid to stop using it because I am afraid my hair will start to fall out again. So I keep buying it each month, but boy I am racking up the Ulta reward points. It had also made my hair grow like crazy. My hair dresser can't believe how long my hair had gotten. I don't think it's thicker but it is longer. So don't give up if your hair is still shedding after the first or second month. Give this product at least 3 months. I think it needs time to build up in your system and then you will see results like I have.

I was introduced to Viviscal by my Endocrinologist a few years ago as a hair strengthening supplement. It has helped minimize my hair loss and I continue to use it daily.

Great vitamins!! They actually work but take as directed on box. You will get desired results!!
Kate from Long Island
Only started using this, bought it during the sale. I do not eat fish, and find this vitamin, which I knew contained fish, to actually taste like fish. I can tolerate it, but will not buy again just for the taste.
ALsunshine from Florence,AL
You have to take this twice a day for it to work like it's supposed to. If you do this you will definitely see results.
I love love 💕 this product. My hair grows so fast!

I take 1 pill in the am
Thicker Hair/Reduce Shedding
Jamie from TX
I didn't necessary buy this product for hair growth, but I brought the vitamins for shedding and thickness. I was experiencing stress and my hair was coming out in clumps. I started taking these vitamins. I waited 2 months and I noticed my shedding reduced. My hair became thicker as well. It was an added bonus that my hair growth was faster than normal after using it for 3 months.
I would buy this product again.
Susan from Stockton
The hair supplement is 2 pills a day.
I would buy this product again.

This product, Viviscal tablets, is helping with hair growth.
Worth your money
Karla from Lompoc
This is my 3rd month using it and I've already noticed a difference in the amount of hair that falls out. May be pricey but you'll notice a difference if you give it time!
Works great for thinning hair
Ali from Boston
I have had severe hair loss for awhile now and this is one of the only products I've found to be effective. It hasn't grown any new hairs for me but I've seen a dramatic reduction in the hair lost. Now when I shower it's not clumps of hair I'm losing but only a few strands. I also take biotin so I've not seen a ton of difference in how quickly my hair grows, but I love that it's making me shed less!
Ineffective and has shark meat in it!
Betty from LA
I was horrified to learn that shark and mollusks are used in this product. Sharks are being hunted and destroyed around the world. Surely they can use a synthetic ingredient and not shark.
Love these pills

Makes my hair fuller and longer instantly saw differences
I was skeptical but it works
Jamie from Ohio
So I've used every hair vitamin on the market. Biotin, keratin, gummy bears, whatever. Nothing. I have naturally long hair to begin with but it would get to a length and just stop. I started taking these and said eh I'll give it a month. My hair grew like a WEED in one month. I immediately bought three more months worth with the 20% off coupon, and my hair grew like two inches in two months (normal hair growth is 0.5 inches a month). I'm usually skeptical of all this stuff but seriously try a month and You might be surprised. I did break out for about a week (biotin... it always happens to me) but it went away and my hair is the longest it's ever been!!!
This product really works!!!
Doreen from Boston, MA
I'm only on the fifth day day of using this product and you might well it's too soon to notice a difference but not so! I have been using a different thickening shampoo and conditioner but after using Viviscal in the short time I have been using it I have notice a very significant difference in the amount of hair loss. Very little in fact. It may take time for new growth but I'm more than willing to wait for that. The fact that I'm barely losing anymore hair has me over the moon with happiness. Together with the thickening shampoo and conditioner and VIviscal I'm certain I'll well on my way to healthy hair again!! I'm so greatful Ulta offers this and I will most definitely be ordering again and encouraging others to do the same!! Thanks Vivascal and Ulta. You made my day!!!
I want to be in their commercial!

This product works! I have PCOS and use to have too much hair. My hair was THICK and broke hair ties, but over the last 10 years, it has severe thinned out. I started using Viviscal Oct. 30th, 2017 and religiously took it twice a day for the first month and then slacked and only took it mornings thereafter. Around Valentine's Day, a co-worker asked what I was doing to my hair. It looked thicker. Then April 2018, BOOM! So many people started noticing. One person asked if I started wearing extensions to thicken my hair. Your hair goes through lots of hair cycles and they take time. You've got to be patient with this. Again, I have PCOS and I've tried a lot of topical products including women's Rogaine and considered a hair transplant. My honest opinion is this, I had "some" regrowth. What I noticed for sure is that my once thick and coarse hair changed to thin, fine, breakable hair and I was losing a lot in the shower. With this product, the hair shedding stopped completely within a month, my strands started coasting back up, the seemed stronger. I noticed my hair became drier and I welcome it because my hair got lighter in weight and started looking extremely voluminous. I took monthly pictures and they're quite shocking with regard to volume. Because of all these changes, it looked like I had zero hair thinning issues and noticeable in a few months that people were very curious as to what I was doing. So truthfully, I'm not sure exactly about actual regrowth, but the drastic change in the strands made a massive impact. When I first started using it, as a gift I got a 6 month supply, but again it's meant to be taken 2x/day and so that supply lasted me nearly a year. I stopped taking it for over a year with no issues. I started noticing a few months ago with added stress that shedding is coming back so I am back on Viviscal. I'm confident my hair will be back in a few months!

There was a whole lot of damage to my hair; thinning (I'm 24 and started to notice thinning at the age of 20), dry ends, and frizzy all around. Usually after washing my hair it gets oily the next day. I'm on my third week now and I can already see a difference. I usually wash my hair every other day, but after a week of taking viviscal it controlled the oiliness so well that I didn't have to wash it until the 5th day (4th day is when it started to get a little oily). I can already see my edges growing and my hair feeling thicker. I don't yet see new hairs growing, but I'm sure it'll take time. The texture of my hair even feels different; a bit smoother and not so frizzy as it was before taking these vitamins. My hair is black and it was so dried out it was like a faded black, but I notice a change in the color where it looks darker now. I'm just so happy to find out about this product. My hair hasn't felt this alive in so long.
I really wanted it to work...
Decortess from Oh
I have taken Viviscal twice daily without fail for ten months. It's time to admit it did not work for me. There has been absolutely no improvement in the appearance, volume, thickness or texture of my hair. I sure wish I hadn't wasted so much money on it.

If you have allergies to shellfish as I do, don't take this. One of the first ingredients on the packaging is marine product. I took the first one and my thighs started itching and breaking out in hives. It was at that point that I read the ingredients.
Rated 3 stars because some people swear by this product, but it's not for those with shellfish allergies, sadly.
I am a faithful user.

I take this every morning after breakfast. I can see a difference and so can my stylist.
Seems to help
MissyB from Dayton Ohio
I have been taking about 10 tablets a week for perhaps a year and while I am suspicious of any product claiming to make your hair fuller or thicker, my hair had become so thin by age 62 I figured it was worth a try. While it isn't a miracle cure for my thinning fine textured hair I do believe I noticed improvement after the first two months. Most of the time now I like my hair style because hair looks fuller whereas before I despaired of it most mornings. It is expensive unfortunately but I usually buy with the fairly frequent 20% off coupon and find overall it is worth the cost to me.
It actually worked!
Joy from oregon
Me and my mom have female hair loss. We tried it together. My nails started growing like I've never seen. Mom had a few sprigs show up in her bald spot. While its only been a month we are excited to keep going. I am seeing results. Im not expecting miracles but i can say i like the results. I have nothing to compare it to since this is the first hair loss product i have ever used.
Jenne from Louisville, KY
It takes a month or two to start to notice it working. There was less fallout and more growth. I did stop taking it for a month and noticeable hair fallout so you do have to keep taking it.
