Biotin For Thick Hair

When one of my daughters was little, she had very wispy, very fine hair. A pharmacist recommended Biotin (back then - more than 20 years ago - they were tiny white pills. Now, they are huge!). I dosed her up and her hair improved. Now, as a 25 year old, she has beautiful long thick healthy hair.

I've had similar results using biotin. My GP recommended it after a test showed I had a deficiency. It took about a month of taking a mega dose for the difference to be really noticeable but wow, what a difference in hair, skin, and nails.

I have mild discoid type eczema and the biotin really-really-really helps! In the five years I've been taking biotin I've only had one flare-when I moved to the UK and couldn't find biotin supplements in the chemist shops. When the flare started I tried Amazon in desperation and hurrah - Amazon carries it!


I know what you mean about the horse pills and was especially pleased that the ones I get from Amazon are small tabs @10,000mcg each. I take two per day with a meal and it's working great for me.

Supposedly biotin in very high doses like mine are ok as it's almost impossible to 'overdose'. However anyone deciding biotin is for them needs to do the research (Mayo Clinic online has reliable information) and check with their health care provider before taking it.

My hairdresser suggested that I use Biotin also.
I am finding my hair becoming thicker and longer. Never had this before.
Hooray, finally after all these years something so simple doing such amazing things.

I started using Biotin approximately 6 months ago the individual hairs have not gotten thicker but there's a lot more of them and I'm constantly getting new baby hairs I can see that 4 in. from my scalp is noticeably thicker especially if I braid my hair. I'm not losing as many when I brush my hair either.
