Shobna's success with Viviscal

Shobna Gulati, 48, is a British actress best known for her role as ‘Sunita’ in popular soap opera Coronation Street and ‘Anita’ in Victoria Wood's Dinnerladies. Despite spending her life in front of the cameras, viewers may not know that there is one aspect of Shobna’s life that she hasn’t always been keen to draw attention to – her hair.

Shobna first began to notice changes in her own hair when she moved out of the family home and had to cook for herself. A poor diet meant that her hair wasn’t receiving the nutrients that it needed and her hair quickly began to lose its shine and shape. In an effort to disguise this, Shobna started colouring and styling her tresses but this only made matters worse. Over the years, a poor diet, pregnancy, the stress of life lived in front of the camera, and excessive use of hair extensions to conceal hair damage all put further strain on Shobna’s once beautiful locks.

Last year was a particularly stressful period for Shobna, and her hair, as producers unexpectedly brought her planned exit from Coronation Street forward by six months. Shobna was finally prompted to give her lacklustre hair the attention that it craved by introducing the Viviscal Hair Growth and Hair Care Programme into her daily hair care regime.

In discussing her fine, flat hair Shobna says: “It was the increased stress and the combination of not being happy and not eating properly. I’m in the spotlight for my job and of course the more you try and hide it with styling, the worse the damage to your hair and the thinner it becomes”.

I’ve been on the Viviscal Hair Care and Growth Programme for four months and my hair already feels fuller and thicker. The first thing I actually noticed was an improvement in my nails – they stopped cracking and were stronger after just a couple of weeks. I’ve also noticed an improvement in my skin, as my complexion is brighter. But most importantly my hair feels healthier and looks shinier already. Finally, I love Viviscal Volumising hair Fibres which act as an interim cover up and thickening solution and the results always make feel more confident about myself whilst the Viviscal Hair Growth and Hair Care programme are giving me that long term solution”.
