I started taking Biotin tablets about one month ago, because I wanted something that would help my hair be thicker and shinier, and I read that out of the hair loss and hair regrowth vitamins, Biotin, which is a form of B vitamin, was one of the most important to add to your diet. So, I snatched up a bottle (actually two, they were buy one get one half off), and tried my luck with this hair growth vitamin.
Let me be clear that I was not looking to regrow hair or grow my hair super long or anything, I just wanted something that would make the hair on my head look better, because it seemed to have gotten dull and dry over the past few weeks due to coloring and highlighting. I’m not sure if any of my dietary changes were to blame, but I figured I could at least give biotin a try.
You see biotin in a lot of topical hair care products too, like shampoos and conditioners, because it is also known to be beneficial to the hair’s luster and shine and health on the outside as well. I figured hey, what do I have to lose?
Well, it’s been about one month, and I haven’t noticed my hair growing any faster, but I think I’ve noticed that my hair seems stronger and more resilient to breakage, whereas before it seemed like the strands might snap in half if I even ran a brush through it a little too roughly. It also seems to have more luster to it, and I don’t know why, but it seems slightly more manageable as well.
I am also combining this with using ultra moisturizing shampoos, whereas before I was using these non-sulfate shampoos that sometimes seemed to dry out my hair more if that even makes sense. Overall, I’d say biotin is great for your hair health, but if you are looking for accelerated hair growth and regrowing lost hair, you may want to try a supplement for hair growth that is geared for this.
