Why is there Iron in Viviscal Maximum Strength?
At Viviscal we are constantly seeking to enhance and improve our Hair Growth & Hair Care Programme based on new research findings and customer feedback. For this reason, the formulation was further enhanced with the inclusion of iron and other known healthy hair ingredients such as biotin and zinc. Iron is an essential mineral that has several important roles in the body. It helps to make red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body to all the cells. The amount of iron in Viviscal Maximum Strength (2 tablets) is 13.6mg, which is just under the European RDA* of 14mg. Hair loss can be one of the visible symptoms of anaemia (iron deficiency). If you are suffering from thinning hair, and you feel it may be related to the levels of iron within your body, we recommend that you visit your GP to have your bloods tested. Discuss your lifestyle and diet with your GP to help them identify what the underlying causes might be. You can then check with your GP if, having ascertained your overall health, it is suitable for you to take Viviscal (*RDA = Recommended Daily Allowance).

What are the Viviscal Volumising Hair Fibres what are they and how do they work?
Viviscal Volumising Hair Fibres have been developed as a cover-up interim solution to effectively and naturally disguise the problem of thinning hair. Made with Keratin, each microscopic fibre has an electrostatic coating which binds them to the hair shaft, immediately building density, giving greater coverage and a thick, full and natural-looking head of hair.
How are the Viviscal Volumising Hair Fibres to be applied?
Simply tap the fibres liberally onto your dry hair until your scalp is no longer visible and your hair looks thicker. Gently stroke the area to scatter the fibres evenly and wash your hands after. As each fibre has an electrostatic coating, they instantly bind to the hair shaft building hair density, providing greater coverage and a thicker, fuller-looking head of hair in just 30 seconds. For longer lasting results, lightly spray with hair spray.
What colours are the Viviscal Volumising Hair Fibres available in?
Viviscal Volumising Hair Fibres are available in 5 natural looking hair colours – Dark Brown/Black, Auburn, Light Brown, Blonde and Grey. You can mix more than one colour to tailor them to your hair colour.
