I'm a new actual member to this site, but wanted to join so that I could contribute my experience with taking Viviscal. I just ordered the tablets, shampoo and conditioner, and will update as I notice any changes. As with most of you, having fine hair has been an emotional thing for me, like lacking a part of me that should be there, like changing my experience at the beach, like stressful mornings when things aren't going right, like spotting "one of me" from a mile away. I'm happy to contribute my own experience though it makes me feel very vulnerable. At some point I'll add photos (I've got before images saved), but for now that's a big step. Please feel free to add your own personal experiences with either of these three products, but I'd like to keep this thread dedicated to Viviscal for me and everyone seeking information. Below is just a bit about me, and my personal history with my hair and things I've tried, in case anyone wants to compare my little case study to theirs. From here on out, I'll keep my posts as much quicker reads! About me: I'm a 35 year old woman, and have had baby fine hair my whole life. I'd maybe compare its thickness to that of a... 7 year old? I'm not sure, but either way, when I say baby fine, I don't mean "oh I have baby fine hair, and lots of it" - I'm sure you've hear that before... I would like to clarify, since my results apply to my type of fine hair, that I don't have alopecia where there is noticeable loss that develops in the teens or later in life, typically on the crown. *Is what I have called diffuse fine hair? please let me know!* My hair history: As a child, it was much thinner than my peers, but looked ok (maybe because I only washed it twice a week and didn't blow dry), in middle school it was a nightmare and I was made fun of with "hair growth for men" references in the halls, in high school I went on a strict no-blow dry regimen and learned to deal with it, but was ALWAYS self conscious, it remained around that level but very slowly getting finer, and around 31 it started to get even more so, nearing unacceptable. (I assume due to hormones, and a couple devastating break-ups.) I tried as many natural remedies possible, and always exercise and eat a fairly paleo diet except with dairy, most of my products are of the certified organic nature and have great ratings on Think Dirty (an app that rates beauty products for their potentially harmful ingredients). At 34 I decided to be more aggressive and sought the help of a dermatologist & endocrinologist. My blood work results only had one slightly irregular mention: my Progesterone levels, but nothing to raise an eyebrow (so they said). I insisted on a prescription to Spiro, starting at 50 mg in November, raised it to 100 mg, and now it's June 4th and I've been taking 150 for 2-3 months. I suppose it's gotten longer, but that's likely due to avoiding salons. The terror of a cowlick in the back of my head that threatens to reveal my scalp if I don't tame it with damaging blow dryer has not improved. Honestly I'm not sure if it's improved at all, might even be worse. My periods however, have gotten insane. I used to get them pretty light for 3 days, now ... well I've ruined some sheets and a mattress - so ... Also, I do not take birth control, nor have I since about 2001. My dermatologist thought it was necessary to take with Spiro, since Spiro can effect our cycles, but I really wanted to be minimal in what I added to my system, and have never been into something that controls my period in that way.
