I take 10,000 mcg of biotin a day.  I find that the biotin in Walmart or the cheaper brands do not work as well, plus they made me break-out, feel sick, horrible stomach pains - the works.  We have a health food store where I live called Black Forest Acres and they make the best vitamins.  My hair has been growing like a weed with much less fall-out.  I maybe loose 30 -50 hairs a day now.  I also do not have any side effects with their vitamins.  I buy all of my vitamins from them.

Don't be afraid to try it, if you end up having a break-out reaction to it, you can always stop and it will go away. I had a few extra pimples about half a month in, but I added a little zinc to the equation and now no more issue :)

Hello all! I am newbie to the talk. I came across this forum after googling information on taking biotin for hair growth! I have always had fairly long hair and made the mistake of agreeing to perm it. Destroyed my beautiful locks. It was terribly damaged. I made the bold decision after a few months to crop it short to a bob, in hopes of saving my hair at all! I kept growing it out and cutting it as much as I could to get all of the damaged hair. Now, a year and a half later I believe I have it all out, left with a little longer than chin-length bob. My hair used to grow decently fast but since "the incident" it hasn't been growing, almost at all. I would really love to get my long luscious locks back! I was recommended from a co-worker to take biotin along with a multi (which I was already taking) and I will be able to tell the difference, does wonders!

Well, my question is- how much biotin should I take, having never taken any before? I am going to pick up some Zinc as well per your recommendations previously in this forum. I also wanted to know if there was anything else that any of you do as a supplement to taking the biotin? I already do scalp massages often, tend to my ends and rarely apply heat to it. Any advice would be helpful.

Thanks! It has been fun reading your posts!
