Biotin Supplement

Post by willi77 on 12th November 2010, 12:58 pm

Hi Ladies, I'm currrently transitioning (into my 6th month) and I'm planning to chop at the beginning of April. I want to maximize my growth before my chop and I was thinking about purchasing biotin as a vitamin supplement. Have any of you had any experience with it? Any pros or cons? Thanks for your help Very Happy

No im sorry i havent but i was thinking the same thing. I heard tht Biotin really helps your hair to grow and plus its good for everything like nails and skin also. But i also take a daily iron supplement and they both basically have the same things in it. I notice tht when i regulary take the iron supplement my hair do seem to be in bettrer health and stronger. But i lack iron so its good for me. You can always find a good GYN who. There not only for women issues down there lol but for beauty solutions as well.

I use Biotin, it made my eyelashes grow like crazy. I haven't noticed anything with hair growth yet, but I'm guessing that it take a little longer.

Also, so people had issue with acne. I broke out a little, but drinking a lot of water will help alleviate that. And taking other B-Supplements, will help balance everything out. I take Super B-Complex.

All B-Vitamins are water soluble and you body will eliminate anything that it doesn't need. And your urine will be neon yellow.

But, Biotin works. I got a 100 tablet bottle from Target for $1.00.

Thanks Nerdography for the heads-up, i definitely do not want the acne...but i'll take the growth. How long have you been taking biotin and how many mcg a day?

I bought some on the weekend and have been taking it with a multivitamin. I guess I'll see what happens.

ive been taking biotin for awhile, it definately makes my nails get stronger and healthier. i normally take 5000 mcg a day and i did an experiment and tried taking 10000 mcg a day and i could see the increase in growth. so it definately works, but it is a little annoying when my eyebrows grow faster, so i have to get them arched a little sooner. but i'll take it! and i did have acne on my back and forehead sometimes, but i think that was because a) i was washing my hair while i showered b) i would wear twistie "bangs" and the oil i used was a bit too much lol. hth!

I personally couldn't do over 3000 mcg withouy breaking out horribly, even if I drank a ton of water. I used it for months and didn't notice any difference in nails or hair. My nails starting growing beautifully once I started using a really good multivitamin. It may be better to get a good Hair, Nails and Skin vitamin than to just load up on biotin.

I was taking 2000mcg a day. I stopped for a while until my skin cleared up. Now I'm taking 1000mcg a day and I haven't had any problems. But I've also been taking extra vitamin B to balance out the biotin.

Hi I tried the 3000mcg a day and got bad acne on my forehead (haven't seen that in 10 years)Sad On the upside my hair grew like crazy (about 3/4 inch in one month and nails were nice and strong. Not everyone gets the acne side effect - but watch out for it

That's interesting I haven't taken Biotin in a long while but I never knew some people got acne break outs from it. Horsetail is also a good supplement that helps with hair growth. I used to take both of these but just fell off so I'm going back to it. Good luck!

I've been taking biotin and msm (one of each a day) for a month now and it did bring on a little bit of acne that soon faded. i seen a huge diference in the condition of my nails though! my hair is thicker and seemingly stronger, but i'm not sure if it's because of the Wild Hair Growth Oil or of the supplements. Before using products and taking supplements to promote hair growth, it might be best to get to know your hair's pattern of growth so you don't either be super surprised from what u think is a MIRACLE or you know when something isn't working right for you! good luck!!

I am currently taking a biotin supplement and I usually try to take anywhere from 1000 - 3000 mcg per day with meals. I have been doing this for the past few months and have noticed definte hair growth on my head but not anywhere else (I was hoping for thicker lashes too!) Also I've had a few breakouts lately so maybe this is the reason why. Guess I'll need to up my water intake!

This is awesome information ladies. I already have bad acne, I wonder if I take the Biotin, will it clear it up. Hmmm, never hurts to try.

I took Biotin everyday for 2 months. I am not sure whether it was the dosage of 5000mcg but after drinking over a gallon a day I still broke out with severe acne. I started taking it every other day and had the same issues. I have heard both great growth stories and some horror stories but my story is I would rather have nice skin and shorter hair than long hair with a bunch of acne. I suggest you try it and if the acne comes then put the left over biotin in your conditioner. It will still strengthen your hair. Hope this advice helps

The first time I started taking Biotin I was taking around 3000mcg. My nails were like steel! This time around I was taking 4000mcg. My nails are hard as rocks again, and this time my lashes have sprouted. Only bad thing is that my skin has flipped out. I have NEVER ever had breakouts in my life. Thankfully I have a lot of red in my skin tone which hides the breakouts. I am waiting for my skin to calm down before I start taking it again. This time I will go back down to my 3000mcg.
