Viviscal Feature in Glow Magazine May 2013

by Viviscal Canada on May 1st, 2013
In its May 2013 issue, Glow Magazine’s Lisa Hannam reflects on her hair history while she begins her Viviscal journey:My teens and 20s were what I would call my Hall of Fame hair years. A warm honey brown with a thick blonde streak in the back, my hair was something I was proud of…My hair, like the skin around my eyes, has become much more thinner…

Viviscal, a new-to-Canada hair-growth supplement with a cult following of celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Liv Tyler and Canadian super model Jessica Stam. In tablet form, it aims to work from the inside out to regrow hair and prevent hair loss, with active ingredients like proteins…antioxidants from acerola cherry, and silica, a mineral said to strengthen hair.

We know that certain types of proteins are essential for hair growth and making keratin stronger, says dermatologist Dr. Glynis Ablon, referring to the proteins from deep-sea creatures Viviscal relies on.
In the November issue of The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology, a six-month study, led by Ablon, tested Viviscal versus a placebo. The group of women taking Viviscal reported full and thicker hair, in addition to more shine, skin moisture retention and skin smoothness.

While I wait for the effects of Viviscal to kick in…I’m maintaining the same warm brown shade I had in my youth…For me, beautiful hair defines a woman, and if I can score strands that would make Cindy Crawford blush, three months is just a drop in the bucket.
