Ive been sharing with you ladies the products, treatments, and techniques Ive been doing on my hair lately in my Hair Care series. Since I decided to grow my hair out as long as I can, I have been doing tons of research on all different types of products, treatments, techniques and nutrition that will promote strong, beautiful growing hair. I wanted to share this with you all because while some of the techniques I do pertain particularly to ethnic hair, many of the treatments, and nutritional information I post works for any hair type.
So Ive been researching the best things to consume to promote healthy growing hair. Ive been researching vitamins in particular and foods that contain vitamins to help with hair growth. One of the most popular hair vitamins is Biotin. It is pretty much the active vitamin in all of the Hair, Nails and Skin vitamins that are sold in drugstores and nutrition stores. So I decided to pick some up and take them daily. I got the lowest dose sold in drugstores which is 1,000mcg since I am breastfeeding and dont want to have a lot of one particular vitamin in my system. So, I decided to take 1,000mcg of Biotin and 1 prenatal vitamin per day. The biotin does come in 2,5000 and 5,000 mcg as well.
Biotin is a water soluble B vitamin that is also known as Vitamin H. Many studies show that it promotes healthy hair, better skin, and thicker nails. In one study in particular that I read about, people were given 2,5000 mcg of Biotin daily and shown 90% thicker nails after 90 days. My nails have also been an issue I want to work on being as though they are brittle so I am just loving the idea of taking this Biotin. I started taking the biotin on June 3,2013. My hair is just passed shoulder length sitting directly on my collarbone. My hair goal is to grow my hair to the center of my back. I will keep you guys posted on the progress every 3 months or so.
Have any of you ladies ever taken Biotin? Thoughts?
