Can A Pill Give You Stronger Hair?

Hollywood stars like Reese Witherspoon and Gwyneth Paltrow believe this one can


If you’ve been searching for a supplement for healthier and stronger hair, the odds are you’ve heard of Viviscal Professional. These reportedly drug-free pills are big in Hollywood and counts A-listers such as Reese Witherspoon, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson as fans.

What’s so great about them? The oat-coloured tablets are formulated with an exclusive AminoMar C marine complex and a blend of nutrients including biotin, vitamin C and apple extract powder, which apparently nourish hair follicles from the inside out. They also promise to strengthen and repair hair that’s prone to breakage and shedding due to chemical treatments and frequent heat styling.

How it works

The supplement works in four stages where first, the hair follicles are nourished with the nutrients and marine complex in each pill. Over time, wispy hair is strengthened. Then, breakage and thinning declines and hair growth is encouraged for stronger, healthier locks. Expect to see results in about three months.

For the sceptical, clinical trials conducted by the brand show results that are consistent with a reduction in hair shedding and an increase in hair strand diameter.

Note that these supplements aren’t for everyone though — since the pills contain marine extracts, they’re not recommended for those with allergies to fish, shellfish or seafood.

$120+ for a box of 60 tablets, available at Privé Clinic, #03-03 Palais Renaissance, tel: 6737-6639.
