    I don't know if it's just the Biotin, but now my hair grows ~2 inches a month. I didn't breakout from it so why not continue? ^^

    I don't think it made my hair grow that much faster; I just started taking biotin at the point that I became hyper-aware of any change in hair growth, so I can't give biotin full credit. I did break out from it; got deep cystic acne. I was taking 5000 mcg per day. Would rather have slow hair growth than acne h3ll.

    yes to both. It made my eyelashes nicer too. although, the horrible zits and headaches were not worth it...I'd get huge hard zits too, not just a little blemish that you pop and it goes away and unbearable migraines.

    It didn't make my hair grow faster, kept at it's usual pace of 1/2 inch every 3-4 weeks. My nails have always been rock hard and strong, but the biotin made them crack and shatter. I would smack them against things on accident and a crescent shape piece of shatter off. Not cool. Stopped taking the vitamins as I felt they weren't working and my nails returned to their natural hard as steal/no shattering make up they were before.

    I don't think the biotin caused any zits.

    Taking Biotin had zero effect on my hair, skin or nails.

    I haven't noticed any difference in my hair; when I started at 3000 mcg I got some painful acne, but I cut back to 1500mcg and that went away. I'll probably finish the bottle and not buy more.

    ETA: Oh, and the zits kept up for about 2 months, until I changed my dosage. There weren't a ton of them, but they were huge and very painful. I had heard that sometimes it's just an initial detox reaction and they'll go away, but 2 months was enough for me.

    I said no for both, because they were both inaccurate.

    However, it did make me grow MORE hair. It's thickening up in places that were sparse, like my temples and crown, and I'm getting a lot of new baby hairs.

    I can honestly say my hair has NOT grown any faster in the past two or three years I've been taking biotin, than it usually did before. It did give me some zits at first, but that only lasted a few months until my body got used to it, I guess.

    I just started taking 4200mcg of biotin two weeks ago so I can't say anything about faster hair growth(yet), but I definitely didn't get any zits.
