With consistency my results have been great so far. I have not tried the new formula for Nioxin though.

When you say great can you tell me what those results were?

What are people saying about the new formula and what was wrong with the old one?

Thanks

When I am consistent with taking the vitamins I am able to get 1.5-2 inches is what I have noticed.
However this includes increased water intake and moderate exercising as well.

I am not sure what people are saying about the new formula, except that they changed it.
I cant really verify if its good or nor not.

I have been taking Hairfinity vitamins since January, and have noticed great results. Sadly because I neglected my regular trimms...I have cut off alot of my progress. But I'm encouraged that with Hairfinitly I'll be back to BSL in no time.

I remember sometime ago that GNC used to carry a knock off to Viviscal and that was really good as well. Not sure if they still carry it. It contained marine protein.

Proctor & Gamble hasn't released the new Nioxin formula yet!
Check out this thread http://www.longhaircareforum.com/sho...ghlight=nioxin


If suppliers are saying it is the new formula - they no speak the truth!!

Default Re: Hair Vitamins

I think vitamins fall in the category of "A watched pot never boils." I've taken them for years and never felt they were doing anything miraculous, but when I stopped, I noticed a difference. I take them faithfully again because IMO they are worthwhile; I mean, the more positive haircare practices you have that make sense for your hair, the better.

I take a woman's multivitamin, a biotin and super B complex daily with a glass of orange juice at breakfast.

At the moment, I'm taking Hair Revive, MSM and Pregnacare New Mum, which is not bad at all. I had a lot of thinning issues in the top of my crown. My thinning is getting much better, however I would like to try Viviscal Professional, http://www.viviscalpro.com/. It is more potent that the Viviscal Maximum strength. Viviscal Professional is sold in high end salons, spas and hair clinics, also available on Ebay. I have seem a lot of reviews about Viviscal, one lady used Hairfinity for 3 months and Viviscal for 3 months and she said she got better quality of growth.

Have you tried Viviscal Maximum strength yet? It has the same amount of Cherry Extract and Horsetail Extract per tablet as the Pro. The only difference is 50 mg of the MarC Marine Complex per tablet, so it's 300 vs. 350. It's a difference, but not that substantial.

Default Re: Hair Vitamins

I'm currently taking 5mg Biotin and 3600mg MSM every day. I have also taken Niacin/Vitamin B3 in the past, to help with circulation.

Biotin makes for stronger strands, and MSM increases the growth phase. MSM must be taken with vitamin C in order for the body to absorb it properly, I think.

My advice would be whatever vits you decide to go with, you must be 100% consistent and take them every day, without fail, and give it at least three months to decide whether they're working for you. Some ladies get breakouts when they take vits, so drink extra water which is good for you in any case. HTH

@Valerie What site do you order the Visical from? I was doing Nioxin from Amazon and got the fake ones. But I need to get back on my vitamin regime asap.

@Valerie Did you get the Extra Strength and if so, how much were they on eBay. I priced them yesterday on the Viviscal site for a 3-pack of 60 ea. for $119.

Weird because the other Viviscal site showed 3 for $99 but when I tried to put them in my cart it went to 0 items and switched you to the other site for $119.
