As many of you may know, my hair is naturally curly. Whenever I wash my hair I usually air dry as I like avoiding as much heat damage as possible. I would say that my main concern is controlling the frizz and increasing volume since I have such fine hair without having something that will weigh down the hair or look greasy as the day progresses. After having my two daughters, I’ve notice a significant difference in my hair’s texture and quality and although the youngest is now 5 years old, my hair has never returned to what it was before. So when Viviscal reached out to me to try their new Gorgeous Growth Densifying Range I was thrilled!! Included in this range are the new shampoo, conditioner and elixir as well as Viviscal’s clinically-proven hair growth supplements, a unique dual-action system for thicker, body-boosting volume to attain gorgeous locks! The Viviscal Extra Strength Supplements contains 60 tablets and retails for $59.99. I opted to pass on this as I’m personally not one who likes to ingest any kind of pills except for my daily multivitamin and iron supplements. I don’t even take a pill for a headache. With that said, I’m gonna dive right into the review and share my thoughts on this range.
Viviscal is an innovative brand producing premium hair growth and hair care products made from the best ingredients. Viviscal’s NEW Gorgeous Growth Densifying hair care range works from the outside to make your hair look thick and gorgeous. Nine out of 10 women said their hair appeared thicker after just one week using the range (Shampoo, Conditioner & Elixir). Each Gorgeous Growth product contains Viviscal’s proprietary complex Ana:Tel™, which contains clinically tested ingredients from natural sources, including pea sprouts, and nourishes strands with Biotin, Zinc and Keratin to leave hair looking thicker and fuller. The new Gorgeous Growth Range works with Viviscal’s clinically-proven hair growth supplements as a unique dual-action system, so you can achieve healthy hair growth from the inside, and thicker looking hair on the outside.
The Shampoo cleanses with a light, creamy lather and rinses out easily. It has a refreshing botanical scent that lasts.
The Conditioner has a weightless formula that moisturizes the hair. Nourishes with Biotin, Keratin, and Zinc.
To keep it real, it’s very hard to impress me with new hair care products because I know how finickity (is that even a word??) my hair is so I try to stick with what I know works. Plus, it can get pretty difficult to manage my hair on a good day because of how dry and frizzy it can get coupled with the lack of volume. With that said, when I first used the shampoo and conditioner, I didn’t noticed any difference in the thickness or denseness of my hair and I didn’t see any volumizing or fuller effects but it works wonders in terms of making it feel lightweight, soft and frizz free. However with continued use, overtime I noticed that my hair had enhance volume and texture, felt very lightweight and bouncy. Both the shampoo and conditioner work really well to give hair a clean smooth look without weighing it down. They clean the hair really well and almost feel like a rebalancing kind of shampoo/conditioner. Both lather nicely and smell amazing as well but isn’t overly sweet or overpowering. The conditioner is one of the few I’ve tried that is truly weightless but still gives the hair that extra conditioning you need. I usually leave it in for 3-5 minutes to let the conditioning ingredients work. Both retails for CAD $19.99 each.
The Elixir is a lightweight, body-boosting leave-in treatment for thicker looking hair and suppose to promote healthy hair growth from within for voluminous, longer and healthy-looking hair. Nourishes with Biotin, Keratin, and Zinc.
The texture of this felt like a lightweight hair oil-gel but it wasn’t sticky, tacky or greasy in the least. It comes with a pump dispenser which I absolutely love. I apply about 3-5 pumps because I have long hair and it instantly hydrates, smoothes, conditions, boosts radiance, tames frizz, and add silkiness. It does all of them. For my hair I still need to use a leave-in conditioner with this but other than that it’s amazing!. This has given me the appearance of thicker, fuller looking hair. It retails for CAD $29.99.
Overall, I really like this range a lot. Honestly I can do without the shampoo because shampoo in general is just not something I use on a regular basis as I mainly co-wash my curly hair but it cleans the hair well and doesn’t make my hair feel stiff or tangle. Using all three products consistently together (in my case mainly the Conditioner and Elixir) has truly made my hair look more alive and healthier and although I haven’t seen any extra growth, I’ve definitely noticed a change in thickness and volume. For me the Elixir is the clear winner. It makes my hair look and feel thicker when I use this and it adds volume and an amazing shine as well. I also love how light it is without making my hair greasy or weighed down. The Conditioner and Elixir are repurchases for me!
P.S. My hair above using just the three products from the range.
