Get Hair, Health & Science News
Victoria wasn’t too alarmed when she noticed a few strands of hair shedding as she combed her hair. But when those strands turned into handfuls, the panic shot through her like an electric current.
A 33-year-old yoga and wellness influencer, Victoria tried to hide her noticeably thinning hair from her Instagram followers. “I had to have every photographer retouch my hair,” she recalls. “There was absolutely no way that I was going to post anything that highlighted my receding hairline.”
Victoria started researching different hair growth solutions and read about Nutrafol in Allure magazine. After a chance encounter with a Nutrafol naturopathic doctor, she decided to commit to a GrowthPlan® and saw results within a few months.

“I had never experienced shedding like this. I cried daily.”
The first time I combed my hair and felt it coming out in handfuls, I immediately cried. Sadly, it continued: Every time I washed my hair and ran the comb through it, I would be left with excessive hair in the shower drain, on the comb, or on the floor. I was mortified.
I had never experienced shedding like this. I was embarrassed to go about my day-to-day activities. Two months later you could see my scalp and my hairline was noticeably receding. It was the most humiliating time in my life. My confidence and self-esteem took a huge hit.
Every time the wind blew, I would touch my hair to see if I had any left on my head. It was getting really bad. I stopped dating, as I was too concerned that my date would notice my visible scalp. My hair thinning was actively starting to give me anxiety. Never in a million years did I think that I would ever be shedding tears over my hair, but here I was, crying almost daily over its current state.
Taking control with Nutrafol
I’m a yoga and wellness influencer and take pride in being authentic with my followers, so I made the decision to be open about my hair thinning on Instagram. A few days later, a naturopathic doctor from Nutrafol, Dr. Melissa Anzelone, ND, reached out to me suggesting that I give Nutrafol a try. She had been following my hair journey on social media and thought that I would be a good candidate.
I ended up meeting with Dr. Anzelone during the fall of 2018. We had a great one-on-one consultation where I told her about my health and lifestyle habits. With that, she recommended I take Nutrafol Women to promote hair health and growth. I was over the moon with hope!
I left her feeling confident that Nutrafol would work, and I was truly ready to commit to taking my four pills a day consistently.
“I’m in awe of how my hair health has progressed.”
It took about three months before I noticed solid results — but once I did, it changed everything for me. I went from being prepared to shave my head and go bald to now having a full and luscious head of hair.
My scalp is no longer peeking through, my receding hairline is gone, and I got my confidence and self-esteem back. I’m waking up every single morning feeling great and so happy that my hair has come back so strongly.
Even my hairstylist is amazed at the continued progress. It was hard for him to see my hair in that negative state of health; now he’s in awe when I come and sit in his chair. Sometimes, even I’m in awe of how beautifully my hair health has progressed.
I can now walk with my head held high, and I get so many compliments from my social media followers, family, and friends on how much my hair has improved and how great it looks. I recommend Nutrafol to everyone. I’m beyond grateful for Nutrafol’s product and team of warm and knowledgeable experts. Nutrafol truly changed my life.
