Bid goodbye to hair loss with Viviscal’s guide to thick and healthy tresses
Everywhere we look women seem to be blessed with Rapunzel-like thick and wavy locks, but that doesn’t mean that they haven’t had a helping hand. Look a llittle closer and you may notice a hair extension coming loose or a bumper clip propping up a voluminous beehive. If you suffer from fine or thinning hair, you are not alone; it is now believed that one in three women in the UK suffers from hair loss at some stage in their lives. Viviscal is a knight in shining armour, helping to turn your hair loss nightmare into a full-volume fairytale.
Thinning hair is defined as the loss of anything over 150 hairs a day. Hair loss can be the result of poor nutrition, illness, medication, hormones, genetics, age, stress or over-styling. Hair loss has been shown to have a huge impact on emotional wellbeing; a recent survey found that 40% of sufferers said it affected their confidence, and 67% said it affected how attractive they felt. Tackling these problems at the source, Viviscal Maximum Strength is a supplement made from 100% natural ingredients that feeds the hair follicles the vital nutrients they need from within.
Dr Deborah McManners, a holistic doctor, naturopath and medical author, says: “Because the hair follicle is a non-essential tissue, it is one of the last to receive nutritious substances from the body. There are a whole range of medical, emotional and lifestyle conditions which impact on the health of our hair. Good nutritional support is essential at these times and in cases of hair loss can be used to support natural regrowth.”
The active ingredients in Viviscal Maximum Strength include an exclusive marine complex called AminoMar C, a combination of marine protein and polysaccharides, key to regenerating new cells and feeding existing cells; extracts of horsetail, a plant traditionally known to have beneficial effects on hair, skin and nails; and acerola cherry (one of the highest grades of vitamin C), a strong anti-oxidant believed to improve the ability of the follicles to absorb important nutrients.
AminoMar C is clinically proven to promote hair regrowth after six months of use, with 95% of test patients showing a dramatic improvement. Viviscal Maximum Strength should be taken twice daily – once in the morning and then again in the evening.
In the interim, thinning patches can be concealed with new Viviscal Hair Loss Concealer Fibres – an instant solution that effectively bulks up natural hair to create the overall effect of thicker hair. The fibres are applied by shaking the product over the hair until the desired coverage is achieved. Thousands of hair fibre strands are released with each application, which bond to the roots of the hair on contact and branch off, instantly building density. Use a small amount for a subtle effect or more to make a dramatic difference.
Viviscal Hair Loss Concealer Fibres are made from the same organic keratin protein as human hair, and the electrostatic coating of the hair fibre ensures they stay in place all day. The fibres are available in five different colours to ensure a natural and undetectable look.
Combining Viviscal Hair Loss Concealer Fibres with Viviscal supplements helps to tackle hair loss issues in the long term, so you may not turn into Rapunzel over night, but you’ll have enviably thicker locks in no time!
