Biotin - Does It Make Your Hair Grow?
Uh no – I don’t think so. Honestly, I’m not a scientist and there is no direct research that shows it does or doesn’t. I do take a Biotin supplement daily. My multivitamin also contains 25mcgs of biotin, as do some of the hair products I use and foods I eat. Have I experienced hair growth? Yes. Is it a direct result of the consumption of biotin alone? Could be but I think it's more likely a combination of factors that have contributed to my hair growth. What it does do is prevent dryness and brittleness in hair, skin and nails…or I should say, if you are deficient in biotin, the result will be dry, brittle hair, skin and nails. All of which, prevent hair from flourishing and growing at a normal rate. I believe you can do things to promote healthy hair, (moisturize, steer clear of certain chemicals, etc.) but I’m not sure if simply taking a pill will do it.
