Lifelong fine straight hair that became even finer with age(?). I read a magazine article about ways to combat fine, thinning hair and taking a Biotin supplement was recommended. I bought a bottle, started taking 1 2500mg daily. Within a short time my hair had natural body and curl. I discontinued using my hairdryer and any styling aids on my hair.
