Hey ya’ll! Today, I want to share one of my secrets to growing long healthy hair. Hair is a girl’s best friend; we do so much with it whether it be haircuts, styles, colors—you name it. I am finally really happy with my hair, but it took a long time to get to this stage and if you’re like me, you like shortcuts. Let’s face it, our generation is impatient; we don’t want to wait, we want it fast, and we want it now.
To put things in perspective, the average speed of hair growth is 0.5 inches a month, which amounts to a total of 6 inches a year. Not totally bad, right? But then you got to count all those haircuts, which if you’re like me and let’s say for the sake of argument cut 0.5 inches off every 3 months, well then you’re really only left with 4 inches of growth that year. Ahhh but we aren’t counting the inevitable breakage that happens here and there in between the haircuts! After you factor in hair breakage, you’re more or less left with 2 or 3 inches of hair growth after a YEAR. Not cool! No wonder it takes forever to grow out hair.
In recent years, I was very insecure about my hair. My hair extensions used to be my security blanket; I would wear them ALL the time almost every day. My hair used to grow so fast when I was younger, but the last few years I’ve had a very difficult time getting a significant amount of hair growth. Granted, this was because I wasn’t really taking care of my hair which is extremely important. If you don’t have healthy hair, then you experience breakage which cancels out all that hair growth. Damage causes breakage. Any time you apply heat, highlights, color, any chemical treatment, you are causing damage to your hair. I know you know this. But it’s crucial to take note of because even if you take a hair supplement that helps grow hair faster, if you aren’t taking care of your hair, you will not see the stellar results that you are expecting. Not to worry though, I have tons of tips and tricks for keeping your hair healthy while still being able to do all the damaging things we love to do. But today, the emphasis is focused on how I grew my hair fast.
I wish I could go back to a year ago and tell myself what I know now. Start using Viviscal because yes, it works. Viviscal will help grow your hair faster than normal. If you go on Viviscal’s website, the makers explain that the key component that promotes existing hair growth is the Aminomar marine complex, which is essentially made up of the main protein molecules that contribute to hair growth. But I won’t go on and bore you with the facts! If you would like to learn more about how it works, just check out on http://www.viviscal.com/.
Just How Much Hair Growth?
My hair dresser is the person that recommended this product to me and she did say that I wouldn’t see results until 3 months. She was right, it took 3 months before I really started to notice. If I had to guess I would say it’s grown a solid 3 inches over the past 3 months, and I also had a haircut in that time frame as well! I can’t wait to see what it will look like in another 3 months. Rest assured, I will give you all another update in 3 months!
Pictures on left and right were both taken right before I started taking Viviscal.

The Nitty Gritty
I was pretty impressed by the results and will definitely continue using Viviscal. But I will be honest about the nitty gritty stuff because honesty is always the best policy.
The pills are HUGE. Well for me they are. I’m not a fan of swallowing large pills so if you aren’t either, consider yourself warned.
They also taste like horse pills. Not that I have ingested horse pills before but if I did, I would imagine they would taste a lot like these. The taste. Not good. I will usually take my morning dose with my coffee so that I don’t taste it! You have to take them regularly for them to work (duh!) and the dosage is 2 pills a day. Take 1 in the morning and 1 in the evening.
They’re relatively inexpensive, retail is $30 for a 30-day supply. Obviously that’ll rack up after a year, but it’s certainly worth it! The two places I know with certainty that sell Viviscal are Target and Amazon. For those of you on a budget and willing to wait a few days, just buy them off Amazon. You can get a 4 month supply for only $65 bucks; whereas if you buy at Target, that would be $120. Or if you don’t want to buy so much at a time, Amazon also sells a 60 day supply for only $25. That is a steal.
For your convenience, I have posted a link to the product on Amazon down below.
That’s all for today! Good luck with the hair growth. Insert hair flip. 🙂
