The Viviscal Program includes four products: Viviscal Extra Strength Supplements, Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo, Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Conditioner, and Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir. The shampoo, conditioner, and elixir are also part of Viviscal’s Densifying Collection. All items are sold separately. However, each one plays an essential part in Viviscal’s hair growth program.

The supplements promote natural and healthy hair growth from within the scalp, keeping hair healthy as it grows. Meanwhile, the shampoo, conditioner, and elixir, when thoroughly massaged onto the scalp, stimulates the hair follicles from outside, as well as protect and strengthen already existing hair.

Manufacturer Information

Viviscal products are manufactured by Church & Dwight Co., Inc., located in 500 Charles Ewing Blvd., Ewing, New Jersey 08628.

The Bottom Line

On the packaging for Viviscal Extra Strength, it says to take the supplements as part of the Viviscal Program. Aside from the supplements, the program includes the three items from the Densifying Collection: shampoo, conditioner, and elixir - all of which should be used regularly. Instead of offering a bundle, Viviscal sells the items for their hair growth program separately. This can be a pain, especially if you’ve already bought one of the products without knowing it’s part of a four-step program. Additionally, while Viviscal Extra Strength has tons of reviews, we can’t say the same for the shampoo, conditioner, and elixir. A final note: it’s best to take precaution when taking the supplements since the key ingredient contains fish allergens.

Viviscal Program Snapshot

The Viviscal Program includes four products: Viviscal Extra Strength Supplements, Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo, Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Conditioner, and Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir. Each item plays a crucial role in promoting natural hair growth, as well as keep existing hair healthy. Viviscal utilizes innovative ingredients in their products such as AminoMar® Marine Complex and Ana:Tel™.

Please note that all products are sold separately.

Drying for African American Hair

It was not suitable for my hair type. The product does what it says and adds volume but it was drying for my African America hair.

Viviscal vs. Middle Age thinning

I've been using the Viviscal line for the past month and have noticed significant gains in hair growth. I can see where the new hair is 'puffing' in like baby hair. I'm losing far less hair in the shower as well. I really think the vitamin supplements are the greatest part of the equation and am thrilled to have perhaps finally found something to stem the wispiness of my encroaching 'old lady' hair. I'm 44, have 2 kids (hair was thick before then), and believe my hair loss to be due to the above, about 30 lbs of extra weight, and a solid year of using antidepressants. The weight is still here for now, the antiD's are gone, and the kids and increasing age are thankfully still what I consider to be a positive aspect of the equation. I do believe, however, that - despite what it was up against - the Viviscal line deserves the high marks it earns from reviewers.

I was told by a friend who lost her hair

was told by a friend who lost her hair due to a treatment. Her Dr informed her of this product for promoting hair growth. She has stated that it worked for her and now she is not using this shampoo. Has anyone used this product for HAIR LOSS

Heavy and Greasy

It's an okay product, but it does leave my hair feeling really greasy the next day. I usually can get away with washing my hair every other day, but this stuff makes it really hard to do that without assistance from dry shampoo (with I like to avoid). It does provide a lot of volume, but I just cannot handle the heavy greasy feeling it leaves.

Three Stars

don't know how good it is yet. it takes a while to know if it works

starsHair body boosting product, not growth product

This is a styling product, to give hair more body, not a hair growth product. When initially applied, it is sticky but then dries and feels almost the way hair spray feels on hair. It has a pleasant fragrance. 3 stars because the name "Gorgeous Growth" is (probably deliberately) misleading, suggesting this is a hair growth product, when this is just a styling product.
