5 Reasons Women Swear By Biotin For Hair Health And Growth

5 Reasons Women Swear By Biotin For Hair Health And Growth1

Have you considered taking Biotin lately? I have and I would be a pretentious blogger if I did not admit that I have a love hate relationship with vitamins in general.

It's not just vitamins though, I would rather sleep off a headache than take two itty bitty Tylenol pills, much to the dismay of my husband. For him, pills are convenient because it means you do not have to 'live' with pain when you have an option for fixing it.

For me, if I can solve the pain by ignoring it or allowing my body to 'fix' itself, I would rather do that. With that said the thought of taking a hair vitamin was not on my radar particularly before I took the time to research about them.

I have to say that I’m a pro of Biotin. I’ve been taking Biotin for a couple years now, and my hair is thick, healthy, strong and shiny. I get constant compliments on my hair and I’m a lazy natural. The less I do to my hair the better. My skin and nails are doing good as well. I’ve seen reviews where ladies have broken out and had other issues with Biotin. I think some women think that if they start taking large doses of Biotin that it will perform miracles, if you do you homework you can see how much Biotin is safe and how much you need to take. I only take 5000 mcg a day along with Zinc (the two work very well together) and that’s it.

A few years ago, my general physician included eye health as a reason to take biotin.

I have been a fan of Biotin supplement for 3 years and now my hair is more healthier than it has been in a long time, also my skin. I have never had a problem with strong nails but when my hair was relaxed it was dry and brittle. I was relaxed for 20 years before I did the big chop, now it has been 10 month since I have had a relaxer and 6 month since my big chop. I am a medical student, so I am all about figuring out a healthier way of doing something pertaining to my body. When my hair was dry and very brittle, I mean it was like paper from all the years of relaxing. I decided to do my research online to see what deficiency causes dry brittle hair. I seen that if you don’t have enough Biotin in your diet you can have brittle hair and nails, etc. At the time I was working at Walgreens so I decided to buy a bottle of 5000 mcg Biotin. I was already taking multivitamins but it just wasn’t enough. The first month with me being relaxed I could tell a big difference in the health of my hair and I was still relaxed. But I can’t used the Biotin from Walmart so I make sure I go to Walgreen whenever they have a sale when you can buy one and get one 50% off. My natural hair journey has been great with the help of Biotin, Coconut Oil, Shea butter, and eating much healthier with drinking lots of water.
