I started using Biotin in hopes to grow out my hair since it takes as much time to grow as it takes a turtle to go around the world and it would break off a lot too. I started in August with the 2500mcg pill that melts in your mouth. The cherry flavor did not have an after taste at all; my nails became much much harder and longer; my face isn't breaking out besides during menstruation and I ba ... Show Full Comment

I was suffering from hair loss in the center of my head. The biotin has helped my hair to grow and get thicker. I also notice a difference in my eyebrows, which had become very thin. My eyebrows are becoming fuller, and I am using less, and less eye pencil.

I have been experiencing hair loss. Dermatologist recommended biotin. Age and possible stress as factors. So far, after 3 months, the shedding seems to have slowed but the hair is still thinner.

Comment:
Started taking biotin 10,000 mcg (Natures Bounty extra strength) about 6 months ago because my hair was thinning in the front and coming out by the handful at each washing. My hair has thickened significantly and grown about 4 inches in length. Have not seen much difference in nail growth although there has been a significant reduction in splitting. Highly recommend biotin supplements.
