I got a really unfortunate haircut a while back and I’m wanting to grow it out quickly. I’ve tried all these oils and shampoos and vitamins but nothing is really helping. Plus, my hair is in the awkward phase where it doesn’t want to grow. Do you know any “miracle products” for hair growth?

Well, there are probably no real miracles in hair growth BUT … I was lunching with a certain beauty guru/blogging genius I know, whose identity I will protect since I’m quoting her on her personal use of a product. She told me she used the ultimate cult hair growth product, Viviscal, and had great results.  She described sitting with her hairdresser remarking on the “bed of soft moss” growing on her head — the regrowth of new hair coming in at the roots. Ch-ch-ch-chia!

That was pretty much enough for me to try it.  (It had previously been recommended to me by the team at Sally Hershberger no less - but still I had my hesitations). 

It’s not cheap but your timing is good because it’s 16% off PLUS an additional $5 off coupon right now on Drugstore.com.

Does this: The ultimate cult vitamin supplement to promote hair growth
Is this: Viviscal
Get this: Above
Price: $36.99 (normally $49.99) for 60 tablets, a one month supply

Heading out to Jones Beach to see [what’s left of, rest in peace, etc.] The Dead.  Wishing I had the daisies to do this perfect hair!
