Customers who are thin on top should avoid heavy, wet-look gels and waxes that can weigh hair down and separate the strands, instead opting for matte-finish, light creams, pastes or pomades. VO5 Extreme Style Matt Fibre adds texture and fullness to hair, with a non-shiny finish. The reworkable formula means users can re-style throughout the day, and the formula washes out easily.

Viviscal nutrients include the proprietary AminoMar C – a rich compound of marine protein extracts, plus zinc and biotin to help maintain normal, healthy hair.
