I’m 13 and I wanna use some of these pills. My hair is just on my shoulders, do theese work on black people hair?
If you are a human being, no matter what race, it shall work.
I admit that your hair doesn’t grow down your back in 1 night so, keep taking them and watch it work. I cut my hair short right at the time that I started taking them. My hair and nails and my skin looks great.
It’s a vitamin it should work fine on anyone.
I wonder how everyone else is doing taking theirs…
I think they make hair grow faster.Definitely nails.I use brand Counytry Life know because that was the best i could get with the money.
They sell bountys nature (hair, nails, & skin) at costco. I have been taking 3 pills a day on and off for two months. My hair has grown id say like 2-3 inches.. But ibe also been using mane&tail shampoo and conditioner. Costco has a coupon for the pills 3$ off i think until late november. And the mane abd tail shampoo costs usually 8$ a bottle at walgreens. Hope this helps:-)
Are you taking 3 of the 5000 mcg a day?@britt:
It is recommended to take 100 mcg’s a day, if oyu are taking 2 – 3 pills a day, I think you may want to see what dosage you are taking because you may be taking too much. Most of the pills are 5000 mcgs. Sounds like you may 15,000 mcgs a day.
Hi im 22 years old and i have very thin hair due to family history is there any chance biotin can work for me?
Ron, I have family history of thinning hair and have taken Biotin now for approx. 3 months. My hair has stopped falling out and I’ve noticed it is getting thicker on top. So Biotin really does work. I can see all the new hair growth. I bought Biotin at Sam’s Club. 250 tablets 5000 mcg. by Natrol $11. I have to admit I’ve been taking 2 a day. The dosage is one a day. After reading this blog, I will cut down to one. I have bought these at Walgreen’s but I believe they were 1000 mcg. The dermologist told me to take 500 mcgs a day for hair loss, so try it, what do you have to lose. it’s working for me.
can these work on anyone like teens under age like 14
A 18, & I dnt hv a beard or moustache….
so wat must i do 2 increase my facial hair growth?????
Hi, my husband loved my long hair when we first were married 5 years ago. One day I allowed my sister to style and cut my hair, well she cut about 5 inches off. I showed up at home with my hair to my shoulders and it was not a pleasant thing when my husband saw me. So I actually loved my long hair down my back. I started taking biotin 5000mcg about 3 months ago, and several weeks ago at work I began to get compliments on how long and pretty my hair is getting. I hadn’t even realized, then several days later my husband said so glad your hair is nearly the length it was…I was taking one capsule daily my nails have always grown but had problems with peeling and splitting. This I noticed a difference in as well very strong, good natural color and not splitting or peeling…I will continue to take biotin, I believe it works that is the only thing different that I take and my hair never has grown so fast so soon…
Same with me. I am so glad this pill has been working for you. I have never had h=my hair grown so long and I am African American, Cherokee, and White, but mostly African American. My hair is just jutting out, especially because I got it cut 2 months ago, and my nails, hair, and even eyelashes are long healthy and strong. Have a wonderful day Patricia, and God Bless.
hi i’ve been wanting to grow my hair out for sooo long. Please tell me how long it would take to grow at least 10 inches if you were using Natures Bounty ?
@Tiana, hair grows about six inches a year for the average person. If you began taking the biotin and adding other foods rich in nutrients that assist in hair growth, you should see 10 inches in a year or a little over. Foods such as salmon, walnuts, green leafy vegetables, carrots and dairy products can keep your hair healthy and and help with your desired length. Oh and try to avoid excessive heat on your hair, bleaching agents, and over processing (perms..etc)
im black and when i was ten my hair was long past my collar-bone. . . i have been dying for my hair to grow bck the length it was. . . .other people who usually arent black, for some reason, hair grows a bit faster.. . . would it work for me?
im 14 and i was wondering if it would be okay for me to take Spring Valley hair, skin and nails vitamins.? i got a terrible haircut about a week ago the lady took about 8 inches off):
i would just like to know if the vitamins would be okay for me to take
I am 15 and I’ve been taking Biotin daily now for a month now. I started with 1000 mg and gradually worked my way up to 3000 mg. I figured I don’t need as much as 5000 mg for hair growth since my hair is already long and I’m young. I just want my hair to get thicker, does Biotin make my hair grow thicker or..? I really haven’t seen that much of a difference in my hair, length wise.. But then again I’ve only been taking it for about 1 month at 1000 mg at first. But massaging your scalp with rose water really helps. Even though I’m 15, I recommend taking a multi vitamin along with one capsule of fish oil. Also using almond oil in your hair. Umm.. Also I advise everyone to NOT brush there hair out while it’s wet/damp. If you do.. Please stop! It causes breakage in hair and ultimately makes for slower hair growth. I hope I helped! My hair length is down to my belly by the way!
Im 14 and my hair is shoulder length. when you say dont brush hair when its damp/wet, what exactly do you recommend do instead. My mom is willing to alllow my use of this product, but shes still wondering if its safe for my age. I’ve notice breakage the extreme thinest of my hair since my monthly perms ended and was hoping you could recommend some kind of product to help situation. Thanks for the advice again.-replying to kelly
