What Is Viviscal Extra Strength?

Viviscal Extra Strength is a self proclaimed advanced hair health supplement created by a US-based company named Viviscal Limited.

One pack of Viviscal Extra Strength costs $49.99, contains 60 tablets, and will last the average user around one month based on the directions of two tablets per day; it can be ordered directly from the official Viviscal Extra Strength website, as well Amazon, GNC, and Holland & Barrett.

Much like the result of the products Viviscal makes, the Viviscal Extra Strength tablets are targeted towards women who are looking for something to improve their hair health (note: there is also a male version of Viviscal too).

When it comes to ingredients, the Viviscal Extra Strength formula is essentially just a combination of vitamins, minerals, and herbal plant extracts. Viviscal themselves describe Viviscal Extra Strength as the “clinically proven, drug free answer to thicker and fuller hair”, going on to claim that it helps to “nourish thinning hair” and helps “promote existing hair growth”.

Our Final Verdict On Viviscal Extra Strength

To conclude our Viviscal Extra Strength review, we like this product and genuinely believe that it could be useful for most of the people who use it.

Firstly, we like how it contains a proprietary blend which has a manufacturer study showing it can potentially help increase hair growth when used for 90-180 nonstop (though of course there’s a conflict of interest to be noted here).

Additionally the formula is loaded with vitamins and minerals can will help to keep your scalp health, and hair follicles function as they should.

The only downsides are, results are not guaranteed for every single person who uses it, and the speed of hair growth experienced could also vary too. Furthermore, it won’t really “thicken your hair” in a conventional sense either (i.e. by increasing head hair count).
