Last year, the Mad Men actress had a field day with hair color and this year, her locks are feeling a bit ravaged. She recently said in an interview that clumps of it have started to fall out, most likely thanks to weakened and damaged follicles. Fortunately for Jonesie, Viviscal — a company devoted to hair regrowth — recently introduced an extra-strength version of their daily stimulating supplement. It’s an over-the-counter tablet that’s meant to be taken twice a day for growth results (noticeable ones!) within three months. To help encourage hair growth, it has 50 percent more of the company’s proprietary protein blend, the AminoMar Marine complex, than the company’s original version of the supplement, along with horsetail extract and intense doses of vitamin C to help strengthen hair.

Those with female patterned baldness, thyroid disorders, or various forms of alopecia are not guaranteed to see results, but it is recommended for post-pregnancy and for menopausal women who may have lost some hair owing to hormonal changes. Once they’ve returned to baseline, users only need to take it “as necessary.” And, while it’s a savior to those with more serious hair issues, it’s a painless quick-fix for those with the terribly common bad haircut.
