    Question Did biotin make your hair grow faster?

    Did biotin make your hair grow faster? How much of a difference did you see? Did it give you zits?
    At BSL, likely stopping here because I really only wear my hair down.

    Taking biotin has made my hair grow marginally faster, from 1/2 inch a month or a little more to about 3/4 inch a month or a little less. It has certainly helped my nails, which are growing like crazy, and I think that my eyelashes are a little thicker and longer, too. (I have the transparent, thin lashes common to redheaded coloring, so I'll take what I can). I've been taking about 6000mcg a day. I haven't had any zit problems from it.

    I've been taking it about a month now and my hair does seem to be on a growth spurt. It has grown over 3/4 inch in the last month which is a lot for me.

    My nails are growing like crazy. I seem to be filing them down every 5 minutes. It has not caused me to breakout either

    I voted No and No. I didn't really notice a speedup in my hair growth, although I DID notice that my nails got mucho strong and they grow like freaking weeds. I don't like them long so I find that I'm constantly filing them down.

    No zits. Yay.

    Oh, oops...I should have mentioned the eyelash thing....they are longer (a little), and thicker. Still totally transparent (the redhead thing), but if I put mascara on....wow!

    I don't really think it makes my hair grow faster. I still take it though. It feels like I'm doing something to help my hair grow faster, since the pill taking is more of an active conscious process, while the hair growing out of my head, well, not so much.

    I take 5 mgs per day. It hasn't made my hair grow faster but I have better quality hair. I think the strands are thicker and I have less shedding. However my nails grow a lot faster. This is not the greatest thing since I have acrylic nails and I have to get fills more often. Some supplements will cause zits. I've read that it's your body adjusting to the new supplement. I've had it happen with several things. Biotin and MSM are 2 that I can think of at the moment. It wasn't a big deal. I stuck with taking the vitamin and eventually the zits went away. It takes the body time to adjust to something new being put into it. I think sometimes people are too quick to stop taking something before they give it a chance.

    There wasn't an option for me to vote (not faster, but more). I've not seen any real advancement of my length, but ever since I've gotten back on the vitamin kick every day and taking a 5,000 mcg biotin each day, I have noticed a whole new crop of baby hairs sprouting up all along my hairline- and I *know* for sure, they weren't there before!!
