I have started taking Biotin to help my hair grow back. Biotin is a B vitamin found most commonly in prenatal vitamins. Biotin is supposed to encourage hair and nail growth. Right now I’m taking 10,000 mcg per day as that seems to be a helpful amount for me. Whether it really helps my hair grow better time will tell, that is if I can stop pulling long enough to let my hair grow back.
For those of you who are unaware, extremely high levels of biotin are the “miracle” workers that can be found in 99% of these hair growth medications that are being sold on the market today. Biotin is a water soluble B vitamin that produces keratin, increases hair elasticity, and protects the hair from becoming dry. It also helps thicken the hair to give the appearance of fullness. It is usually paired with MSM which my some hair, skin, & nails supplement do contain.
