Biotin does make your hair thicker- the part that you have not lost. But the hair that I lost is coming in very slowly, but I think it is because of my iron tables I take. My iron was very low.

Learning to let go is hard, but it gets easier. I am not getting older just better!

This is some info I found on the product. I think it is very pricey.
I found this info at Hairboutique.com:



Downside Of Viviscal
There are only two negative things I have to say about this product:

1. The price is a bit steep for the average person ($78.00 for a 1 month supply) It is cheaper if you buy it in bulk. ($66.30 for 4 packs or more)

Note: At the time that this article was written in April 2000 the average cost of Viviscal for 30 days was $80-$100. Viviscal can now be found for much lower pricing at a variety of Web and retail outlets.

2. Viviscal has a distinct fishy taste and smell! Since the product is derived from marine origin, it isn't much of a surprise, but if the smell and taste of fish turns you off it may be really hard to take this product regularly.

There is also a warning on the box saying that people who are allergic to seafood and shellfish might want to stay away from this product.

Technical Information
Here is some technical info on Viviscal:

Recommended Dosage: 2 tablets per day (1 in the morning, 1 in the evening) for 6-8 months. Thereafter as maintenance 1 tablet per day.

*keep in mind this product was developed as a treatment for baldness*

Nutritional Info: Based on a 2,000 calorie diet

Remember Viviscal is not FDA evaluated since it is classified as a supplement.

I've never tried it. My doctor told me to use Biotin - it's a vitamin B and available just about everywhere. Walmart, larger grocery stores, drug stores, etc. and is very affordable. It is also suppose to help nails grow.
I would like to hear from others though if they've tried Viviscal.

Has anyone tried this product? Did it work for you and any side effects? I read mostly good reviews for the product on Amazon.com and hairboutique.com. It contains shellfish, fish oil, so if someone is allergic to these, they should not take the product. One side effect mentioned was an oily face, but hair was fuller and grew faster. Also nails grew better. Price is about $54.99 per 60 day supply.
