Beauty Review: Viviscal Extra Strength Hair Growth Supplement Review

60 million Americans experience some form of hair loss or thinning hair. I didn’t know that there were this many Americans suffering from thinning hair or it falling out. When people think of thinning or balding hairlines they think of men, yet it’s just as true for women.

When a woman starts experiencing hair loss, she thinks of herself less. Her self esteem hits rock bottom and she can’t stop thinking about how much hair she has lost, or will continue to lose.

They let their hair loss run their lives. They stop doing certain activities that they may enjoy because it can add to their hair loss or thinning hair. They feel ashamed about it, and therefore keep it to themselves- feeling reluctant to tell other people about it.

These results are from a survey done by Viviscal

1000 Women with Perceived Hair Thinning

  • 65% avoid some type of activity because of their hair thinning/loss
  • 66% think about their hair loss at least once-a-day or more
  • 79% stated that their hair loss affects their overall level of happiness
  • 1 in 5 have kept their hair loss a secret

Contributors to hair loss include health issues, poor diet, stress, hormonal changes, major life changes like divorce, pregnancy, and job changes can cause hair loss/thinning in women.  There are viable solutions to treating hair loss.  As always with health issues, begin by consulting your personal physician.  For issues related to your hair, a good dermatologist would also be a good place to start.

My Review

My hair before I became pregnant was a little on the thicker side. Not too thick- but just the way I like it to be. It wasn’t thinning, it wasn’t falling out in large amounts every time I’d take a shower or wash my hair.

After getting pregnant with my son and him being born 16 weeks premature is when I first noticed that my hair was beginning to thin out. Every time I’d wash it there would be hundreds of hairs on the bottom of the shower when I was through.

I seriously thought there was something wrong with me. I didn’t know what to do. I actually went to the doctor about it and they told me it was pregnancy hormones making my hair thin out.

Not until later did I find out that this might be true, but the stress was also a trigger into hair thinning. I’ve been very thankful that it wasn’t the “patchy” hair loss. Nobody seemed to notice a difference except me.  There wasn’t any bald spots, so I just kept on with my life.

My hair always and still does grow quickly, but has been thinning since my first pregnancy. Even going to the doctor welded no results to helping me. I’ve longed for a thick head of hair since post-pregnancy seven years ago.

It didn’t help that I would dye it, blow-dry it, and straighten it- adding to the damage. I hated the washed out look my hair would get WHEN I didn’t dye it though.

Now that I have found VIviscal Extra Strength, I can already see a slight difference even though I haven’t been using it for the entire month. Every time I take a shower, I’ve noticed less and less hair falling out. It’s gotten thicker with more body!


You take 2 extra strength pills on a daily basis for a minimum of 3-6 months depending on how bad your hair is thinning/balding and you’ll see a big difference.

It helps that the pills are easy to swallow and don’t smell or taste funny. Although I’ve never had an issue taking medicines, I know people who can’t swallow some larger pills or if they have a weird smell or taste.

I can’t wait to see what the results bring after I’m done with the entire box. Healthier hair? YES, Mam!
