Hi my name is Tanisha & I’m 17. I’ve been trying to grow my hair since I was 13 & I was wounding….. Any one here is on it right now? If so does it help me grow nice long healthy hair? & have any horrible effects? Please I need to know I always wanted long hair. Thank u
Hi my name is Tanisha & I’m 17. I was wounding if any one on here is on it right now.. If so does it give you beautiful long hair with no horrible effects????
Well from what i read from several places, the only side affect is some mild breakouts, but apparantly it can be avoided if you drink a lot of water everyday! For Biotin, you can safetly take up to 5000mcg (under 10,000mcg i think is fine) without a problem. The normal amount from food is around 350mcg but i take two pills of 2500mcg every day and feel GREAT!! The pill is water soluble, it is there when your body needs it buy excess amount get passed ouy through urine (to my kowledge) but i think the body uses as much as it can. @Tanisha:
I’m 19 and my hair is ALREADY thinning due to family history. I don’t like that it makes me feel like an old man, but if there’s nothing i can do because the genes, i can deal. However, i read that there’s no side affects to Biotin so i purchased 2500mcg pills the other day from target and have been taking 2 a day with plenty of water. I can say my nails are a bit stronger for sure, but i’ll have to report back if/when my hair thickens back up and grows. The BIG keyword here is “patience” i know it’s not an overnight miracle but i’m 19, i have plenty of time to nip this thing in the bud befofe it gets out of control. Good Luck everyone else!
Does it matter what milligrams to take? I have the 1000mf
it matters the 1000 one you will have to take like 5 times a day! it really works too,i have been taken it for 3 weeks now and from my shoulder my hair is now down my back, i love it… my hair was really thin due to hormone problems now is thicker…im also growing facial hair but i take care of that! im also taking the vitamins for nails, hair, skin and body and collagen three once a day! i feel better about my hair and skin! my moms hair grew from her hair being short, really short she couldn’t even have a pony tail and taking vitamins with biotin like the nail,hair, skin and body she grew her hair down her waist in two years and i treat her ends every 6 months. @javar:
hey does this help grow out ur eyebrows??
& if no then anybody have any ideas on how to grow them out?
I am based from India. Can anyone suggest me a brand name which will be available here in India. Thanks.
I got it by the name of Joytin (10 tablets around 50 Rs), 5mg that is equal to 5000mcg. However, even Biotin was available, but that i could not get less that 10mg, i think, may be too strong to start with.
@Ekta: ” BIGTRIN PLUS ” is the name of the biotin tablet available in india..You can buy it from local medical store..
So what is better, Hair skin and nails or stright up Biotin? And I seen a couple ppl sayignt o take it with another vitamin… I jus want to know what to get so my hair grows. Can I use jus the Biotin or hair, skin, and nails.. or do I get one of them with another vitamin.?
@Chelsie: straight biotin the nail,hair and skin vitamins usually only contain the minimum amount of biotin and you have to take 3 of them! in my opinion they also have a terrible after taste! also washing your hair with honey and olive oil helps repair breakage. lots of brushing,scalp massages and believe it or not laying upside down for 5 minutes a day!
I take 5000mcg and 1 vitamin B-12 together everyday. It’s a safe supplement and it does work.
Doesn’t really matter what brand.
Re: Chelsie – Hair skin and nails or stright up Biotin?
Answer: It’s the same thing!!!
You can buy it at any drug store.
Awesomely good pills…there are absoulutly no side effects and honestly my skin looks way better than before..i have no more breakouts and my nails are thicker and longer geeze i got my nails done on a friday and they already need a fill by tuesday thats pretty intense growth, and my hair as well feels smoother and looks longer even after i bleached my hair =] miracle pills of 2012
really biotin works ah?iam suffering from hair loss.from 8 years onwards my hair is falling drastically.iam using for 10 days .
I haven’t been taking biotin for very long, but I honesty have already seen results. my hairs not growing noticeably, but I remember when I first took it I had a lot of split ends — kept forgetting to cut them. now I just looked at my hair and it looks so healthy! I can’t find the split ends, and it doesn’t look like they broke off. health should take priority over beauty, and 1000-2000mcg of biotin a day supports healthy hair. Go for it!
AND my nails are growing long and gorgeous <3
I been doing this healthy hair thing for 9 mths.now and now that my hair is in a healthy state I’m trying to focus on length I’ve been taking biotin for 1 week now so I’ve it’s to soon yo notice growth but I have notice acne in my face is that because it’s new to my body if so when will it stop…
