  • Not the regular biotin post....

    My husband was shaving for work when I barged in the bathroom....not wanting nothing. He asks if I need him for something. I said no. This joker says...you sure? I mean since you in here and all...I can uhh line that mustache up for you! I was like hush meanwhile looking in the mirror and dizzzzamn I indeed had noticeable hair.

    I took some cornrows out and did a quick length check 2 days ago..and I had noticeable growth there too. I knew it was biotin bc that's the only thing different I have done over the last month. Then of course the mustache really let me know the biotin is working.

    Anywho off to the store for a BAG of razors and/or facial wax lol....but the "stache" has to go.

    *****oh yea and I got acne too...up'd my water intake of course and keeping my face and pillowcases (satin pillow case incase I dnt tie my hair up so I know some of my products are on it) clean.

        I started taking two 1000mcg but I dropped it to just one a day to see if the acne would clear up. But I just started taking two again. Lol not a microscope!!!

            Ohhhhh u doubled the dosage. Yeahhhhhh imma stick with the one pill hahaha. We'll see how that works. I have a 60 day supply and a bottle of Hairfinity. I plan on using that after I run out of Biotin. Did the acne clear up any? How long did u do one a day before u started back with 2?

              I saw some ladies taking up to 5 a day...the bottle says take anywhere from 1-5 a day. So I sd hmmm I'll start with two. I dropped it down to one a day for about a wk and half to see if that would improve acne...didn't do much which is why I switched back to two a day. The acne has gotten better. Like I said I keep my face clean with Clinique face system which I've been using for two yrs...love the stuff. But I also added a face mask facial thing once a week. It's an avocado and oatmeal mixed in a bentonite clay. Between the two my face has cleared up. Oh yea and I wash my pillow cases two a wk. before it was once a week. Also make sure you drink plenty of water to help flush out what your body won't use. I was proud I drank 8 glasses of water yesterday I'm gonna try again today lol.

              Doesn't the hair finite have biotin in them? I know I take an everyday womans vitamin and it doesn't have it in there. Keep me posted on your growth!

                I was looking for something to grow my brows back with after a bad brow waxing years ago. Thanks for the info. I am supposed to start the Hairfinity this weekend, not a fan of the size or smell. If I can't take it I will switch to Biotin.

                  Oh yes biotin pills are sooo small. But if you do switch be sure to still take a women's vitamin of some kind!

                      I have been taking Jarrow brand 5000mcg biotin 1x a day for at least 3 yrs and my nails are stronger, my hair has grown faster everywhere, but not on my face.

                        I think the ones I use are natures way or nature something. But I'll look for those. Bc these are take 1-5xday which equals 1000-5000mcg a day. Anywho does your hair still grow at the same rate as when you first started taking them? Hopefully the whole extra body hair will subside but for now I'll just keep my razor handy. Also I really could benefit from stronger nails so maybe a 5000mcg wil work for me. I'm gna google marrow to see what stores around me sale them. Thanks for the info!

                          It has good reviews on amazon...which I use a lot. But the more you buy the cheaper it gets. I have less than half a bottle so I will give these a go! Thanks for posting!

                            I just looked the up...you can find them on vitacost.com. I purchase most of my vitamins there. I have a supply of hair,nail, and skin now. But I will try these after I'm finished!!!

                              5 a day?!?? That's crazy!!! I can't swallow that many pills a day lol. How are u doing with ur water intake? I need to up mine drastically. I have crazy growth so far but for health reasons I need more water. Oh and yeah the Hairfinity vitamins has 2500mcg of biotin in them. I just posted a pic in the "transitioners post your new growth" thread. I'm 19 weeks post texturizure and ready to cut these scraggly ends lol. I'll do a side by side of me at 7 weeks and now. It'll be posted in my blog, on here, tomorrow. 😊
