What Is Viviscal

Viviscal was originally developed by Dr. Allan Lassus and launched in Finland in October 1992. It has gone through a series of clinical tests and these studies have been published in Europe and Latin America.

viviscalProduct Range

The product range consists of tablets, shampoo, conditioner and scalp lotion. The ingredients are completely natural with no unpleasant side effects. The nutritional factors that activate hair growth are complemented by the Viviscal extract mixture, a combination of vitamin C, silica compounds, and a highly concentrated marine protein.

Most of the participants in the clinical studies had used other treatments without success. However, their success rate with Viviscal was extremely good especially in the early stages of hair loss.

Effects of Viviscal

Not only does it help to stop hair loss but it also encourages new growth by activating resting follicles. It also has a beneficial effect on skin and nails. It is suitable for both men and women.

Viviscal is extremely effective in treating the milder form of patchy baldness, alopecia areata. Even in the case of alopecia totalis or total baldness, good results have been obtained. The results achieved in the treatment of hereditary baldness, androgenic alopecia, in both young and middle-aged men is also very encouraging.

What makes it truly unique is that it actually helps to remove internal barriers that block the flow of nutrients to the scalp. The follicle is surrounded by tissues, which block the passage of some of the essential nutrients for hair growth. Not only does Viviscal provide more nourishment; it also hydrates and rejuvenates the scalp in a way that simple vitamins and ordinary proteins cannot.


One 500 mg tablet of Viviscal contains:

  • Natural Extract Mixture of Marine Origin 300 mg
  • Acerola Extract (corresp. to Vitamin C 30 mg) 120 mg
  • Silica Compound 30 mg
  • Microcrystalline Cellulose, Magnesium Stearate and Black Currant Flavour.


A: Generally, after 4-6 months of use. This is because hair is a slow reactor; ask anyone who has had anaesthesia, or a major trauma. Both of these cause thinning, but usually several months after the incidents.The Viviscal nutrients accumulate slowly, carefully, in your system. After a time, and depending on the speed of your metabolism, it reaches a threshold point, and the change is dramatic.


A: No! The tablet contains no drugs, no hormones, and no industrial by-products. It has been on the market in Europe for over half a decade, with only positive results, and is manufactured under GMP-certified conditions.


A: Absolutely! To begin with, it is much stronger and healthier, because of an increased level of beta-carotene. Our clients also report increased thickening; better lustre; and an increase in softness and malleability.


A: The process itself is proprietary, but basically active ingredient not only carries nutrients, it also distributes them in a unique way. It actually works to loosen the barriers around the follicles, which ordinarily prevent a vast amount of essential vitamins and proteins from getting through. It is one of many things which make this supplement unique.


A: The tablets are for men and women. They works as well with ethnic hair as with any other type.

However, we do not recommend that people allergic to fish, seafood or Acerola nor pregnant women take the product without consulting their doctor. It should also be noted that patients with a condition of greasy seborrheic dermatitis should refrain from taking Viviscal until their dermatitis is cured.

Nanogen Fibres For Instantly Full Hair

nanogenHair fibres are a unique formulation of pure keratin that have been precision cut by laser to microscopic dimensions. After cutting, the fibres are dyed and are coated to enhance the retention of electrostatic charge. Real people, Real Solutions, Really Works!

The dried fibres are then hygienically packed into containers, which are constructed from a sophisticated polymer that stimulates static charging of the fibres whenever the container is moved.

How do Nanogen Fibres work?

Nanogen is applied quickly and without mess by simply shaking the container over the thinning area, releasing thousands of the microscopic colour-matched hair fibres, which intertwine with, and branch off of the real hairs.

The Fibres Bind Electrostatically with Existing Hairs

Charged with static electricity, they bond in fir tree patterns along the hair fibre so securely that they will stay in place all day, in strong winds and rain, and will not stain or smear, but can be easily washed out with a shampoo wash.

The fir tree pattern creates a realistic looking AND feeling density. Other sprays and creams simply colour the scalp to make the hair loss less visible. Nanogen is completely different.

As the Nanofibres (as they were once called) actually cling to individual hairs, the effect feels natural and allows styling like you never again thought possible. Every time you look in the mirror you will be truly amazed.

As explained earlier, Nanogen is a unique formulation of pure keratin that has been precision cut by laser to microscopic dimensions. After dissection, the fibres are dyed and are specially coated to help them to retain maximum electrostatic charge.
The dried fibres are then hygienically packed into containers, fabricated from a type of plastic that efficiently donates static charge.

Unlike imitations, only the patent pending Nanogen dispensing unit uses advanced polymers to add static charge during use. Look for the special “Nanogen” markings.

They are really simple to apply and can take as little as 30 seconds or less once you get used to it:

  1. Wash and Dry hair. After styling, sprinkle Nanogen Nanofibres over the thinning areas until the scalp is no longer visible.
  2. Using your hand, pat and shape the area so that the fibres can merge seamlessly with your existing hair. Don’t use a comb or brush.
  3. Apply Nanogen Locking Mist to bind the hair-fibre matrix.

Damaged Hair Help Grealy Needed

My hair is extremely damaged, so much so, that if i pull it hard, it breaks off in my hand. I have gone to Sally’s Beauty and they have given me 30 different things to try. I have even splurged and bought what was recommended at the salon, but nothing works! I have already chopped most of my hair off, and i don’t want to cut anymore. My goal is for it to grow waist length.

It is damaged from about over a year ago, i colored it so many times!

I don’t use heat, or any other chemical products in my hair, does anyone have any suggestions?

Is hair gel bad for you hair

I have naturally curly hair..its nasty and unmanageable I have to flat iron it (but I have a 100% ceramic flat iron and use aveda heat protectant) but I just got a ton of blonde highlights in my hair and my hair is pretty I assume not blow drying my hair or flat ironing it would help get it back healthy faster..but I cant just let my hair go without I have to shower and then while its wet put a bunch of hair gel in it to keep my curls manageable and non-frizzy..So ive been doing that everyday instead of the other…So is using hair gel defeating the purpose? I just have heard before that hair gel is bad for ur hair..dont know if its true


ok – I want a drastic hairstyle change – colour and cut – I need suggestions:
ever since I got preggo with Allie there is one section in the back of my head that is curly and that cut doesn’t flow very well any more
TIA for any and all suggestions :)


So about 2 months ago, I started using a different brand of shampoo and conditioner, and ever since then, the back of my head is soooo itchy! Its driving me crazy. It hasn't started itching in any other areas or anything, just the back of my head. Does anyone know whats up with this? Or what I can do to make it stop?

Highlights (cap or foil)

So I got highlights about 6 weeks ago and my roots are about 1/2 to 3/4" long… Now what??? I have brown hair. How do I just do regrowth??? Do I have to redye and then re pull threw the cap??? Should I just buy a blonde hair color???Please give me some advise…

What hair straightening gels can I use for colored hair

I don’t know where you live but there is a company based out of San Fransisco and they sell products to quite a few salons over here in Nevada. The company is called Nikolas and there one product called Sleek is the best, they have great hair sprays and shine sprays and stuff too. I use sleek in my hair when it’s damp and then blow dry and straighten, it’s great. I know if you call them you can order directly from them if you can’t find anywhere around you that sells their products.edit: and it will NOT strip your color

Experience with Regaine

I’ve been using the 5% Regaine for about 4 months now per Drs. orders. I definately have a fair bit of regrowth on the top of my head and the sides are thicker, but there still is shiny scalp. There are problems though. The first being the hair that has come in is very kinky and looks like frizz on the top of my head (kind of a white see through color). The second is that you have to apply Regaine 2/day (according to this web site) and it leaves your hair oily and wet. So I could not go to work like that after applying it in the morning. The evening application is no problem. The third problem is that I am growing facial hair. The last thing is you have to keep using it or your hair that you regrew will fall out.

So, while I am happy that the hair loss is better than last fall, I don’t feel I can leave the house looking like this. If I try and use a curling iron it helps somewhat then frizzes a few minutes later.

Has anyone else experienced this?
