Hi everyone. Just putting in my 2 cents also. After 2 weeks on the biotin, I too noticed that my hair was getting thicker. I will keep on as long as possible. I try to take 5000 mcgs too. A great product for me !!

Day 5 here....

Major change in the hair growth. I just cut my hair real short about 3 weeks ago and I've already had to trim it because it's getting too close to my shoulders.
And my leg hair too... I shaved on Sunday and it already looks like I haven't shaved for two weeks. :blush::blush:

Is it safe taking 2 a day(5000mcg)I could not remember if i took one this morning.And don't want to take another one just in case i did take it.(not that i want 2 everday just in times like this when i cant remember)TIA!

yes and yes! everything Ive read says there are no known side effects to biotin.. you just excrete what you dont use biotin is awesome for hair and nails but did you know it is being touted for WEIGHT LOSS? biotin apparently helps our metabolism especially with metabolizing carbs. supposedly Biotin improves the efficiency of insulin action..

I think I have a post on it somewhere in these forums..

I just wanted to share that I have been using the Jasons Shampoo & Condtioner and my hair seems softer and I havent been losing much hair at all. I used to always have strands coming out in the shower and i would find them on my shoulders, on my clothes etc(like I was shedding). NOW I only find a strand or two. Ive been taking the 5000mcg Biotin capsules for several months too. I hope it helps all of those still struggling with hair thinning/loss.

Hey girls! I have been using the biotin shampoo/conditioner and taking the lozenges for a few weeks now. I do think my leg hair/eyebrows are growing in quicker. It's hard to say anything about my nails as I just got my acrylic taken off after years of having them. I don't know for sure about the hair on my head BUT I colored my hair last night and usually I have clumps of hair coming out when I rinse and I barely had anything come out. I was excited

I wish there was some difference in my nails.. they still break way to easy.... as far as my hair its so much better

A friend of mine, who I recommend Biotin to show me the hair growth she has had since starting Biotin about 6 weeks ago, its over a inch.... she is so happy and passing the word around....

I finally got around to ordering my powdered biotin. I cannot swallow pills so ordered this to try adding to my nightly shakes. Can't wait to see if it helps. Getting really upsetting to see so much hair fall out when I brush and wash it.

I'm not 2kidsl....

But, I'm taking 5000 mcg one a day - for about 2 weeks now - haven't noticed much of a difference - wondering if I need to up it to 2.

I've been taking 5000mcg of biotin off and on for the last two months. I have definite hair growth - it seems like half of my hair is shoulder length and the rest is about an inch and sticks straight up.

Yes and new growth too! I also started using the Jasons shampoo and conditioner with Biotin(recommended on this thread) and like the results with that so far. Also, my nails have less splitting and breaking. Hope it helps you too

I have to admit I would love to use Biotin as the head on my hair is REALLY thin and I lose tons (my partner keeps complaing about it clogging the drains) the problem I have is I suffer from hirsutism (excessive hair growth in females).

I am worried that if I take Biotin it will work against the Spiractin I take to try and reduce the excess hair I have

Any advice?

Keep us posted on how you are doing with your biotin. I know it helps so many people. If everyone posts how much they take and how its been helping them it could help so many more people.

I want to try this too. But, I am a bit worried about my facial hair! Has anyone seen an increase in facial hair? I've been through most of this thread and have read about the leg hair, but how 'bout the facial stuff? Any input is greatly appreciated! I will also post my results!
