My hair lady told me to get this. Because like you I wanted my hair to grow fast......It did not work for me. I am not sure why. Hope that you have better luck.

I was losing a lot of hair after having both of my kids and I found out about Biotin from people whose hair really got damaged from the keratin treatments and they say it really helps.
My hair stopped falling off so much and got thicker but can't say exactly how long after I started. It definitely looks much better now. I stopped when I decided to have the breast augmentation, soon I'll be back on it.
Give it a try, it may work for you too

How many mcg per tablet did you get? The regular biotin supplement from the grocery store near me has only 1000mcg. It is recommended to take 3000-5000 mcg a day for hair growth. I'm taking the Spring Valley hair, skin & nails one that has a bunch of different vitamins, including 3000mcg of biotin.

If I can ever remember to take it regularly, I could give you an answer as to how long it takes to work. Your thread title actually reminded me to take mine! lol. I think it is about 3 months to start seeing results. I may be wrong.

Here is a link to the Super Biotin. It wasn't around, so I bought the one that said it was for hair skin and nails.

i've been taking it regularly and have noticed my hair growing faster than usual.
Biotin generally supports hair/skin/nails, as well as your metabolism! :]

I notice a difference in my nail when i take it regularly, I think u have to give it at least 3 months to notice any signifigant changes and just make sure your dose is high enough, Ive read numerous articles that says it helps with the thickness and helps it grow. also try massaging your scalp every day, that stimulates hair growth as well!!!

Biotin does make my hair and nails grow, but it gives me horrible breakouts. Not worth it for me I love my hair, but having bad skin is my biggest pet peeve. I try and get my B-5 through foods like eggs instead.

I do a weekly hair treatment/massage using virgin coconut oil and its worked wonders! My hair was always really dry and frizzy, no product ever worked on it but this is magic and I love it. Just google the benefits of coconut oil and you'll see for yourself! It's so soft and shiny I barely have any breakage.

I also take a combination of supplements for hair growth and even my friends noticed a difference with my hair because it never used to grow. Also, I used to get my nails refilled every month or so now I do it every 2-3 weeks. Its a lil more expensive but I'm happy my hair and nails are finally growing!
-Biotin
-Silica
-MSM
-L-cysteine
-Vitamin C

Hi ash-leigh_jane,

Biotin is usually used to make your skin, hair, and (primarily) nails stronger and longer. About a year ago, I got my hair (waist-length at the time) cut, and the hairdresser trimmed it to the nape of my neck ! Needless to say, I never went back to her, and I totally feel for you right now. Right after this happened, I started taking 2 Nature Made Prenatal vitamins daily, and 4 Skin, Hair, and Nails (by Origins) vitamins each day, and I noticed a HUGE difference immediately, like in 2 weeks! My hair started growing at the rate of approxiamately 2 inches/month with these vitamins, and it was super healthy and thick as well. I think the SHN has biotin in it, and I'm not sure why the prenatal vitamins help but many recommended them to me, and they were a big help.

Good luck Eden xo

Yes it works! I take a few other vits to get my help grow out. I had a problem with extensions a few months back and researached what helps. Biotin does help. My hair takes forever to grow... after getting it cut and an extension problem pulling out my hair, I decided to regrow it. After 3-4 months, my hair grew 3.5 - 4 inches! I was so happy, as thats a year for me. It has slowed down as I havnt been taking them. If you stop, the grow process will slow down. I would also recommend a good shampoo such as Nioxin. After I skipped a few days and stopped using that shampoo I noticed my hair went dull and is a bit worse.. Also the easiest thing you can do is scalp massages to provide added stimulation to the hair follicles, that will help new hair growth!

Ahhh Eden, I had the same thing happen to me! I love love love my hair, it was long and curly until my hair dresser decided it needed to a cut to be healthy again. She cut it to my shoulders and since it is curly, it bounced up and I could barely put it into a ponytail. Growing out hair is a pain in the arse. Mine is right in that stage just below your shoulders where it looks kinda odd.

I started taking 1000mcg of biotin a day and it has grown 2 inches in the past month!! Also my nails are long & lovely as well.

Biotin works!

I am totally serious! This stuff is amazing! My mom's hair dresser recommended it and I started taking it and have seen an increased improvement in my nails and hair!

There is a downside though.. ALL your hair grows faster. Where i was shaving like every 3-4 days now I have to shave my legs every 1-2 days or start having dredlocks on my legs. lol ewww!

Biotin does work! I take 1 softgel of 5000mcg daily and my hair grows within weeks.. U can get it at any pharmacy.. I got mine at Rite Aid. I'm not sure how much my hair grows every month but I've noticed that I have to color my hair more often, prob every 3 weeks cause the roots are already showing.

I've read that for hair to grow faster you need to eat right and touch your hair as little as possible. Also, if you can, trimming it a little every 3-6 weeks helps, and I've also heard of prenatals working. Hth
