Hola! I’ve been a bit absent the past few weeks – I started a new job (I get to work with some amazing beauty and fashion brands!) and life has been absolutely hectic as I’ve been settling into my new role. My apologies!

Anyways, a few months back I became an ambassador for Viviscal, a natural supplement that promotes healthy hair growth. You may remember my original post as I began my Viviscal journey and started taking the supplements from a little while ago. I’ve now come to the end of my 6 month trial with it and am ready to spill the beans on how everything went!

Before and After

In case you did miss my original post, I’ll give you a quick little overview of Viviscal. As I mentioned, it’s a hair supplement system system (see ingredients below) that is meant to be taken 1-2 times per day – I like to take it in the morning when I wake up and again before bed. The system was created to help improve the health of hair from the inside out, with results beginning to show in 3-4 months. It works in 4 steps:

Stage 1: Viviscal works to nourish hair follicles from within

Stage 2: Strengthens and supports hair from the inside out

Stage 3: Supports the hair to become healthy and strong where it has become damaged

Stage 4: Makes your hair noticeably thicker, fuller, healthier looking and more vibrant

So, how did it go? Personally, I’m really happy with the results. I’ve included some before and after photos so you can judge for yourself from a physical stand point.

Before and After

The biggest improvement for me was the rate at which my hair grew. I’ve been wanting to grow my hair out for a while but I swear my locks grow at a turtle’s pace. As you can see from the pictures, I did have a significant amount of growth (with two hair cuts in between) and I definitely noticed that it grew more quickly. I’m very happy about this and I’ve continued to take the supplements, just at a rate of one per day. Another great change I noticed was in the feel of my hair. My split ends have been lessened (I’ll admit it, I’m not always the best at treating my hair well), my hair feels softer and I’ve noticed a lot more shine! It did take a few months before I started noticing these changes, so you do have to be dilligent with following the system and taking the supplements daily – don’t give up if you don’t see a difference after the first few weeks because it does take a little time to start working.

As for side effects? I honestly didn’t notice any changes or issues while taking the supplements. I was a little worried about an increase in oiliness as they do contain fish oils, or potential break outs, but I didn’t experience any issues with either of these, and I didn’t hear of anything from any of the other ambassadors. I can’t speak to anyone else’s experience, but I wanted to let you know that everything was good on my end.

So as a final result, was I happy with Viviscal? Absolutely, and as I mentioned I’ve continued to take the supplements since. I think this system is good for anyone to use, but especially those dealing with thinning hair, dullness or lack of volume and those looking to give their hair a growth boost. For any of your looking to try this product out, it’s available at Shoppers Drug Mart or Viviscal.ca for $59.99/box (1 month).

Last summer I decided to give my hair the big ol’ chop.  Lobs were just coming into style, and with the hot weather I thought that then would be the perfect time to try something a little shorter.  I went just above the shoulders, and decided to keep it that length until a few months ago and I felt like it was time for a change.  As much as I’ve loved the shorter length, I’m ready to have longer locks that I can do a little bit more with, and I’m sure that I’ll go short again in the future!

Anyways, around that point in time, something magical happened – Viviscal came into my life and asked if I would like to become one of their brand ambassadors.  I had heard a lot about it at this point in time and was very curious to see how it performed and what it could actually do for me, so my naturally inquisitive self decided to jump on in  and give it a try.

My BEFORE shots – stay tuned to see the AFTER!

Time for a mini info session to enlighten you on what Viviscal actually is, for those of you who are unaware So, what exactly is Viviscal? The Viviscal Hair Nourishment System is a supplement system (see below for ingredients) for stronger and healthier hair.  Taken daily (2x per day, 1x after a period of time), it works for healthier hair from within, working through four stages during a period that takes about 6 months:

  • Stage 1 – Viviscal Maximum Strength supplements work to noursih hair follicles from within.
  • Stage 2 – Strengthen and supports hair from the inside out.
  • Stage 3 -Supports the hair to become healthy and strong where it has become damaged.
  • Stage 4 – Make your hair become noticeably thicker, fuller, healthier looking, and more vibrant.

Right now, I’m about 3 months into my Viviscal journey. The results are a little slower to notice at first in most people, and I’ve been told that the three month mark is when you start to notice real changes.  So far, I haven’t had anything crazy happen, but I believe it’s a process that will have more noticeable results over the next few months.  So far, I can say that I’ve noticed an increase in how quickly my hair grows (my roots have made sure I’ve noticed this), which is really exciting as that helps me work towards one of my main reasons for trying Viviscal.  I’ve also noticed a slight change in the texture of my hair.  It feels healthier and shinier, and lovely in general.  Usually I notice damage happening much sooner after a cut, thus making trims a more frequent necessity, but I don’t have to go in for a cut as often now. Also, I was a little worried about the increased consumption of fish oils wreaking havoc on my face, but I can happily report that no skin changes have taken place – hallelujah.

I keep the tablets beside my bed so I remember to take them twice a day – before bed and in the morning!

I know I still have a ways to go, but I think that my Viviscal journey is off to a pretty good start.  I’ll definitely update and will be sure to share before and after photos once it’s complete!
