About 3 1/2 years ago I did a stupid thing. It was shortly before I married my husband, involved a trip to Ireland, a breakup, and, well, a breach in rationality. Long story short, my now husband and I broke up while I was in Ireland, I cut my waist length hair into the shortest bob I could manage (and got an angel tattoo on my right shoulder). Three days later my husband called me to tell me I was the only woman he could ever want and I should come home so we could get married.
Now, bless him, he told me how beautiful I was when he saw me (even though I could see him crying inside!) but I knew I had made a horrible mistake! With cutting the hair, not the guy! Now, what does a girl who had spent the better part of her life babying her hair to get it to waist length do when she cuts her hair all off? Aside from curse her stupidity, she goes about the tedious job of regrowing it.
Now, I still baby my hair. I have long since kicked my Kerastase habit. I cringe at even looking at a Pantene bottle. I have discovered the secret of long beautiful hair is oil and it is part of my “slow beauty” routine to oil my hair every four days. I even use a DIY hair serum made of, you guessed it, more oil.
I then carefully shampoo it with a “no nasties” shampoo and condition it. I sleep with it in a top knot in a scrunchy. All that, though, will only get you so far.
A diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and protein (lots of veggies!) and no processed foods really does work wonders. My hair averages about an inch of growth a month (a little less in the winter) but has, of late, lost its luster despite my incredibly healthy way of eating. A French girlfriend of mine told me about Viviscal and how it helped her grow her hair out from a bad bleach job where most of her hair broke. I was skeptical but desperate because my plan is to have my hair to my bra strap by May and, at the rate it was going it just looked like it had given up growing much past my shoulders.
I also gave the supplement to a girlfriend of mine who had a problem with thinning hair. I think I am her favorite person in the world now!
Anyway, within a few short months of using Viviscal, my hair started growing like crazy, it’s shiny and lustrous again, and has found its moisture again. In two months it has grown an inch and three-quarters!
So what’s so special about this supplement?
First let’s talk about how it works::
Four Stages to Healthier Hair Viviscal® works in 4 stages over 6 months (although most users notice a difference after just 3 or 4 months–in line with the natural hair growth cycle).
STAGE 1 – Nourishes the hair follicles.
STAGE 2 – Strengthens and promotes the growth of existing hair.
STAGE 3 – Promotes the growth of existing hair where it has slowed down or temporarily stopped. These hairs are thin and wispy at first.
STAGE 4 – Hair becomes stronger, healthier and more vibrant. *Clinical trials were conducted on male subjects. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Individual results will vary.
Viviscal Extra Strength are natural food supplements containing the following active ingredients:
AminoMar C™ Marine Complex- provides the essential proteins needed to nourish hair loss and promote existing hair growth. Horsetail Extract – an organic form of silica, increases the strength of the hair and revitalises lifeless hair. (Its presence in our bodies decrease as we age.) Vitamin C – derived from the Acerola Cherry (richest source of Vitamin C), with highly effective anti-oxidant properties.
This takes about 3 to 4 months to really SEE results (but I saw them much faster and so did my girlfriend who, after 6 weeks of taking them, noticed her thin patches were noticeably thicker!) but it is my number one secret for lustrous hair AND it has the benefit of increasing the strength of the nails too!
