Having a thyroid problem, I've suffered with weight issues and as a result, problems with skin, hair, and nails. The biotin was recommended to me by my doctor as a natural way to help combat the symptoms I was experiencing. Within 2 and a half weeks of starting the biotin I had noticeable changes in the strength of my nails and in my skin. My feet were not nearly as cracked any more. It took a little longer for the changes in the hair to show up...probably closer to 4 weeks, but it definitely helped. My hair was the most noticeable to other people and it caused me a lot of anxiety so I was happy to see it growing and improving.

These particular capsules are a lot larger than I prefer- they're a high dose but the pills themselves are bigger than necessary. For me it's difficult to swallow. I also encountered a bit of acne in taking them. However, when I coupled my biotin intake with another supplement for hair growth (Hair Growth Essentials: #1 Rated Hair Loss Supplement for Women and Men - Advanced Hair Regrowth Treatment With 29 Powerful Hair Growth Vitamins & Nutrients for Rapid Growth - 20 Day Supply) I was able to reduce the acne and my hair improved more rapidly. The folic acid hair growth pills really did wonders for my skin too. These pills are actually capsules and smaller and easier to take but of course I have to take 3 a day so that is downside to me. However, in the 6 months I've been using these products, I've had no hair loss in that time and better yet my hair now grow faster than it has before I ever had any medical issues so I guess I'm still taking a big pill of biotin and a handful a capsules and shouldn't complain!

I've only been taking these Biotin supplements for 2 1/2 weeks, but I can already tell a difference. The last year or so, I've noticed that my hair is thinning in the front, and it's gotten worse the last few months as I've started perimenopause. I've also had two nails that are splitting/peeling, and I haven't been able to grow them out or do anything to stop the splitting. I bought the Biotin to help with these two problems, and so far it's already making a difference.

While it's still too soon to notice any difference in the thickness of my hair, my splitting/peeling nails have already grown out to the point where they are no longer splitting. In fact, the top layer of the nail that was separating from the rest of the nail seems to be more "fused" in place. My nails also feel harder and stronger, and almost brighter.

Additionally, I've also noticed that both my eyelashes and my eyebrows have gotten longer. When I was curling my eyelashes the other day, they came past the place on the eyelash curler where they usually end; I've also had to tweeze my brows a bit more.

At this rate, I'm very happy with this product since it has had noticeable results. Like I said, I haven't noticed too much difference in the front of my hair, but I know that that is because it is still early in the process and it can take several months to have noticeable hair growth.

It sort of snuck up on me, too, how quickly this was working. The other day, I glanced down and was surprised to see that my nail was no longer splitting. I wasn't expecting such quick results, and was pleasantly surprised. Since I have seen results with my nails, eyelashes, and eyebrows, however, I know that this is working already, and I can't wait to see continued results with my hair.

Biotin will help your hair to grow. You can also get Biotin in a multivitamin that resembles a prenatal vitamin sans the high iron count. I was worried about the cystic acne that I had heard other users talk about. I suppose it helped that I started out on a much lower dose and worked my way up. Also I made a very conscientious effort to stay hydrated so that I could flush out whatever Biotin my body wasn't using. I also took biotin with Hyalruonic acid which helps with joint flexibility and your skin's elasticity.

Do a little research on Biotin, but apparently what your body doesn't need, it flushes out. Most people do see results in about two weeks. I had been using Maxihair and my hair was already on a fast track of growth so it would be hard for me to gauge exactly how fast my hair was growing with just biotin.

I do have a couple things going on here. I lost some hair due to my neurological medication that I take because of an automobile accident, and then I also have PCOS. Women with PCOS usually have all kinds of fun hair on their face and such, and they also are insulin resistant. Interestingly the biotin helps to reduce triglycerides as well as a "bad" form for cholesterol called "VLDL" which tends to be present in PCOS patients blood. And the Biotin and a combination of Chromium can help to reduce the blood sugar of diabetics. So in trying to grow back my lost hair I ended up doing something pretty good for my PCOS. I would suggest that if you have PCOS you should have a little chat with your doctor before you go ahead, especially if you are already on something for your insulin issues. (I am also on Metformin for my PCOS, but apparently not as high a dose as you can go.
