Thoughts |
My thoughts are that this actually works. I heard so many reviews and so many people have raved that this stuff works and I can now believe because my hair has grown so long! I have been taking this for 2 months now and I can say my hair grew 4-5 inches.

I bought this from a health store at the mall and this is just a Healthy Options brand. I'm sure other companies have this and I heard most drugstores have them in the States. I am taking 500mcg once a day but I usually take it before bed. I recommend you start small but this was the smallest they carried and I only wanted to try this out. I got 90 capsules.

The negatives though, it took about a month for me to notice it was growing. It also broke me out a little. I am lucky enough that I don't get pimples and it is a rare occasion but 3 days after I started getting tiny bumps on my face and soon started hurting. The really sad part is that one sprouted on the tip of my nose and that was the worst one I got from Biotin. After a week or so, the pimples died down except for the one on my nose. But as I write this it is now gone but it did take a month or more.

These weren't that great on my nails. I mean they grew longer but thy didn't make them strong. I was expecting them to be stronger than getting longer but it is fine I do enjoy the length while it lasts.

Another thing I should add. I am also taking another vitamin supplement that was prescribed to me by my dermatologist so this could affect the Biotin working*. When I take it together the results are that my hair is growing more faster than biotin alone. The effects are both combine but since I have been taking it together it does an incredible job.

Remember, Biotin grows your hair out but it doesn't repair it and become brand new. It isn't magic where your hair is just perfect and normal again. But it may not work for everyone.

If you have a question just ask and i might be of some help to you. I have been taking this brand of Biotin for 2 months exactly today and so I kind of know how it works now. 

Pros |
It grows your hair out.
it gives you a tad bit energy for me at least.

Cons |
It takes a month to really see the results.
I broke out a tiny bit and got a few pimples. 

Overall | 
I enjoy this product and it did help my hair grow. If you want to grow your hair out and to improve your skin and nails Biotin might help.

  5. Thanks for your review. I've been really wanting to try this out 'cause I have brittle nails. But I don't like the effect you said when it gave you pimples.

  6. I am definitely very late to the party but I will comment anyway. I have been taking biotin on and off for a few years and this is what has happened to me during my usage.
    The first time I used it I started out small, I think at 1000mcg. I was also taking a multi-vitamin. exercising and eating clean at the time. My hair growth was maximized for sure. My hair was at the top of my shoulders and was at my bra strap in less than a year. The biotin made my nails grow faster, but not stronger, or so I thought. I took the biotin for 6 months and then fell of the wagon with my exercising, supplements and clean diet. My nails stopped growing as fast but all of a sudden 3 months after not using biotin, my nails were much stronger. So I think only the new growth in your nails is what grows in strong. A year ago I started taking biotin again and I upped my dose to 2000mcg and ended up breaking out, so I stopped using it. I made sure to drink a lot of water as I had when I previously used it but that didn't help.Now In April of this year I cut my hair into a pixie, liked it for a month and then wanted to grow it out again. This time however, I have been taking my multi-vitamin and biotin plus drinking a metric ton of water and my face hasn't broken out and is much better than before. I am now able to take 5000mcg and I feel great. I also take MSM 2000mcg a day with the multi-vit and biotin. My hair looks amazing and is growing at it's maximized rate again. I would also like to add that I notice even better results when I am eating super healthy and a lot of salmon, spinach and eggs! My conclusion from my own personal experience is that it worked for me but I had to tweak a few things to get the maximum out of it. I recommend taking a good multi-vit along side the biotin, exercising 2 to 3 times a week if not more, drinking a lot of water and eating healthy.
