Thinning locks? Don't miss this rare sale on popular Viviscal hair growth supplements

·3-min read

Whether you're going through a life stressor or are simply getting older, thinning hair is a common issue for both men and women. But just because something happens to plenty of people doesn't mean you should have to suffer through it. If you're shedding more than usual, it's important to consult a dermatologist to try to figure out what could be behind it, along with researching what evidence-based treatments might be a good fit for you. If you don't want to wait till then to take action, it makes sense to consider taking a hair-growth supplement. Well, right now, Amazon has Viviscal's ever-popular Hair Growth Supplement on sale. You can score a three-month supply for 36 cents a tablet!

Of course, it's understandable to have this question: Do hair loss supplements actually do anything? They can definitely help, says New York City dermatologist Dr. Gary Goldenberg, founder of Goldenberg Dermatology. "Supplements that contain ingredients to block DHT — one of the drivers of androgenetic hair loss — can help slow down the process of hair loss," he says. "Other ingredients, such as biotin, help strengthen hair and nails."

Biotin, along with zinc, vitamin D, iron and niacin can "help decrease DHT [dihydrotestosterone], improve hair strength, and have antioxidant properties," Goldenberg says.

Viviscal Hair Growth Supplement contains collagen, biotin, zinc, vitamin D, iron and niacin, and a three-month clinical trial found that it increased the number of hairs in participants by 32% and decreased shedding by 39%. The researchers also found that use of the supplement led higher quality-of-life-assessment scores than those who took a placebo.

Thousands of Amazon reviewers swear by Viviscal. "I'm in my 60s and my hair is getting finer and finer," shared one five-star fan. "During menopause I lost a lot of hair! I was just tired of not being able to even style my hair because it was so fine and thin. Last-ditch effort, I bought this product when it was discounted. I've been using it for two months now, and I've got to say, I love being able to wash, brush and style my hair. It feels so much thicker, and the near bald spot on the crown of my head is filling in. I was truly a skeptic, but I will buy this product again."

A fellow happy customer said that Viviscal "reduced my hair loss significantly." They added: "I purchased this after noticing significant hair loss after a very stressful period in my life. I didn't expect it to regrow my hair, but I hoped at least it would stop my hair loss. It has stopped the hair loss, and I am noticing hair re-growth after three months of usage."

Of course, it's important to point out that hair loss is a complex phenomenon, and it's difficult to guarantee that any hair loss supplement will help. Still, Goldenberg says supplements can be a part of a larger treatment plan: "Supplements are one of the tools we use to treat thinning hair — mainly androgenetic alopecia and telegen effluvium." He typically recommends that patients use supplements as part of a larger treatment regimen that includes things like platelet-rich plasma injections and topical minoxidil.

Again, any remedies should be pursued with the guidance of a dermatologist. "There are many currently-available therapies that are helpful to slow down and even reverse hair loss," the good doctor says. "But don’t wait. Once follicles are gone, it’s very difficult to bring them back."

Viviscal uses a special mix of collagen, biotin, zinc, vitamin C, iron and niacin to promote hair growth.
