hair update

It's been two months since I cut my hair and started taking 1-2000mcg biotin  daily. My hair has grown exactly one inch. This seems pretty normal, and I'm a little disheartened. And annoyed at the awkward hair ahead of me. Today I'm upping to 5000mcg. A lot of people online say you have to take that exaggerated dose to see any results. We'll see.

update 4/30
I decided to leave my second bottle of biotin unopened and bought some Nature's Bounty extra strength Hair, Skin and Nails vitamins instead. They have 5000mcg biotin, 50% daily recommendation of vitamin E, and a wealth of other vitamins, as well as added collagen, calcium, alpha lipoic acid (whatever that is,) and silica. I will be very disappointed if after a month my hair has not grown more than another half inch.

p.s. I forgot to mention, I did notice my eyelashes have gotten a little longer and my fingernails are growing a little faster, so I know the biotin's not been completely in vain.


  1. I just started taking biotin too. I can't remember what the dosage is, but I just take one tiny pill a day. My nails chip like nobody's business, so I'm hoping it'll help them too.

  2. I started taking biotin last week! I take 2 of the(I think) 1000 pills a day....maybe it's the 2000. Idk which it is! I just hope it makes my nails stronger!! And my hair!! haha



YAY! I'm so glad you're leaving a comment. ^.^
