I was taking 1000 mg of biotin and 5000 msg of msm and it gave me really bad adult acne. But my hair did get thicker! So I just stick to putting one scoop of msm powder in my spray bottle.

I've never seen any definitive info on MSM. Biotin is the business though! I take 5 mg/day along with a multi and DHA (Omega 3).

I’ve been using MSM for the last year now. Initially I started taking it for hair growth, I gave it a good long trial of about 6 months to see if I would notice any change in my hair.

I noticed a little accelerated growth but nothing major however, my skin cleared up and seemed to tighten up quite a bit. I lost a substantial amount of weight prior to taking MSM, 3 Stones and 3 pounds, (about 42 pounds) and this product really helped to tone me up and train for longer.

My skin is quite sensitive to supplements and I really want to try Biotin, what would be the right amount to take to see results without overdoing things?

ok so these supplement together are great for aiding nail growth. since i'm using Wild Hair Growth Oil i wasn't sure if my growth and thickness of my hair was from the supplements or the oil. so i stopped using the supplements for a few weeks, i seen an extensive amount of shedding (no i haven't changed my regimen) and my nails became more prone to breaking. I will start the supplements again (one of each everyday) to see if these problems stop

How often do you take the biotin? I bought some hair, nail and skin vitamins and it says to take them three times a day. I can't get into a routine of eating and taking a pill three times a day.

i take the biotin supplement once a day, at the same time with my msm. i'm not big on pills and i damn sure can't remember to take them 3 times a day, so i did what worked for me. i always kept a small baggy of them in my purse so when i had a drink around lunch time i would take the 2.

that's interesting @Atasteofcaramel... i couldn't honestly answer that question because with myself being mixed raced my hair grows quickly topically lol. but whatever dose of Biotin you can find in the store shouldn't be strong enough for such a drastic change as body hair growth

After leaving here I did some research about Biton and people have said thay they have notived their eyebrows growing back faster as well as haveing to shave their legs more ofter. As much as I want my hair to grow I do not want the hair on my body growing. So I am going to have to pass on this one

A Taste of Caramenl I've been using Biotin and I did notice that my eyebrows grow back faster and the hair on my legs grows fast with or without Biotin I'm just a hairy person lol but I dnt think its anything drastic because I did the big chop on 12-25 -10 and I have a lot of hair growth witch I dnt think I would have had without the biotin I think you should give it a try.....Really you might like your results. I think the xtra hair growth in the other areas are jst for us really hairy gals lol.

I love biotin...i am one year natural (MArch2010) I use two 5,000mcg biotin daily and one fish oil tablet (by nature's made) and i see noticeable changes in my hair and nails. When i take the biotin my nails grow really thick, and strong. My hair gets thicker and is less prone to breakage. I would give this regimen a thumbs up. BTW i purchase my biotin at walmart for 7dollars. I used to go to GNC but they are def a rip off...biotin is biotin and it works the same way whatever you do not use your body will excrete (get rid of it) anyways. Smile good luck girls
