How many of you use vitamins for hair growth, and which do you use? Have you seen any extra growth using them?

I don't know if I would call it vitamins for hair growth but I'm using GNC's Women's Ultra mega active, Biotin, and Triple Cod Liver oil. I figure that it could hurt because I read somewhere that the bodies machinery works in such away that the hair and nails are usually the last to get the proper nutrients. Basically the author of the article suggested that if your diet wasn't on point and you weren't taking some type of multivitamin to supplement the gaps in your diet then the hair and nails would suffer. I don't think I've seen any extra growth but slow and steady still wins the race.

I used to take hair skin and nails vits, along with multivits. I think they were contributing to my overall health. I need to get back on top of that. Becasue I think when my whole body is healthy my hair follows

I took biotin for a few months, and I had crazy new growth in the beginning of the third month. I bought a $2 from Walmart. The only problem I had with it was that it made hair grow in other places, too, like my face. :/

I was reading about the biotin causing crazy hair growth everywhere but I'm desperate so I'll just increase my waxing appointments if necessary, LOL. This combination is said to work for crazy fast hair growth. I'll add, drink lots of pure water too.

Just ordered:
Biotin - 5000 mg capsules
MSM - 1000 mg capsules
Chorella - I forget how many mg but I'll take one capsule a day of each.

Any less mg than that and you won't see much results.

I also read to use Mane & Tail shampoo & conditioner. I used that years ago when I was young and my hair was naturally thicker and it did make a difference. It's cheap, available at Wal-mart so maybe I'll try that again.

The results you get with biotin are not worth the extra money you'll spend on waxing, or getting your hair relaxed every three to four weeks. It's also not worth the havoc biotin can wreak on your skin, and the cost of fixing that. I was lucky enough to not end up with skin issues before I quit using it, but a lot of women say it causes bad breakouts. If things are that bad, get extensions.

B Vitamins Are Important For Healthy Hair

The best vitamins for hair growth include the B vitamins. These are usually found in whole grains, fresh fruit, brewer's yeast, eggs, fish, turkey, meat, and milk. These vitamins are water-soluble, which means they don't build up in your body like vitamin A does.

* Para-aminobenzoic acid may prevent your hair from graying.
* Inositol can help prevent hair loss.
* Niacin (vitamin B-3) promotes blood circulation to your scalp.
* Panthenol (vitamin B-5) may stop hair loss and help to regrow hair.
* Biotin can also prevent your hair from graying prematurely. It's also an essential vitamin for preventing hair loss.
* Vitamins B-6 and B-12 have also been shown to play a role in healthy hair growth.

I used Hairfinity for about a year and then stopped. I had a very large growth spurt at the beginning but then I felt like it started tapering off, plus it seemed like I was breaking out more. Since I've stopped taking them my skin has been great. I started up with some Hair, Skin, and Nails vitamins that I got from the dollar store and I seemed to get similar results without the extra acne. I got out of the habit of taking those, but I'm gonna start up again soon so my growth won't slow down when the weather starts to get cool.

Your welcome, Naomi. I got vitamins a while back from puritian's pride.

Multivitamins: MULTI-DAY MULTI-VITAMIN PLUS MINERALS (http://www.puritan.com/multivitamins-067/multi-daytrade;-multi-vitamin-plus-minerals-004130?NewPage=1)

They're pretty cheap 3 bottles for $10.99...and when I brought them I used a 30% off plus free shipping coupon, so I made a steal. lol

Has anyone looked at Bolthouse Farms Blue Goodness (It one of those bottled smoothies )? It has a bunch of vitamins. I wonder if anyone has used it before as their B complex. I'll be drinking that plus my everyday multivitamins.

Stay healthy and take care of yourself. Certain minerals and vitamins are documented as being beneficial to hair growth.Vitamin B-6 is well reported to be essential for the body to convert amino chain acids into healthy keratin growth for hair

Yes, I take vitamins. I take a Hair, Skin and Nails vitamin along with Vitamin C. To prevent breakouts, you have to increase your water intake.

Hi ladies, I have being using Futurebiotics Hair, Skin & Nails for a few months. I think they've been helping, especially with my skin since I'm still dealing acne. My hair does seem to have grown longer but I wouldn't say thicker...

I want to add some of my thoughts about Vitamins for growth. Here i am sharing some of my thoughts about it.

* Vitamin D helps in absorbing the calcium from the food and helps in forming calcium & phosphorus in the bones.
* It regulates the growth that is required in kids during the formative years.
* Vitamin A is essential for the proper body to grow for the proper functioning of your eyes, immune system and the reproductive organs.
* The foods rich in vitamin A include the orange colored fruits like sweet potato, oranges, papaya, lime, carrots and red bell peppers.

Ive been using Biotin for the past three weeks. I was told that you won't be able to see results until you've been using it for three months. I have my hair in two-strand twists right now and I will see if there was any progress when I take these out!!!

I take my multi vitamin, fish oil, calcium, vitamin c. I tried Biotin and MSM back in the day, Biotin I thought made me break out, then I realized you needed to take a B-complex vitamin with it for balance, and drink more water. I didn't notice any effects in my hair so I stopped. MSM is supposed to make your hair curl pattern a bit looser and extend the growth cycle of your hair- yeah, how would you know exactly that your hair's life cycle had been extended- except 3-5+ yrs later? It had some bad side effects so I quit that too. Horsetail is supposed to be good for your hair, and nails, made me itchy. I keep it simple now.

If you want to grow your hair long, you need to take vitamin child rights, and vitamins B, C and F, and E, zinc, iron, copper as well, and also the calcium and vitamins (d), to find include magnesium, and healthy fats are important for maintaining overall health and prepare for your hair transplant.

This is very good stuff, I always buy when it is on sale, it can be pricey at times here. I tend to get the premium quality.

I take one source multivitamins for women or prenatal vitamins. I haven't saw a change in hair growth, but I noticed that I have a lot more energy than normal. Your overall health does contribute tremendously to hair growth.

There are so many different types of vitamins. Each vitamin have their unique work. It is important for hair growth and shine. I always eat high vitamins food. Vitamin D Maintains Your Calcium Balance. Amino Acids are important for your health and they can also help you to have superior hair growth.

I have been taking both since may, the sulpur is a major supplement the body depends on to work and it aids in our system making/forming keratin bonds. Biotin will kick in its fullest in the 3rd to fourth month. For those that are blood type A, they tend to need to take twice as much dosage of Biotin as their blood type do not absorb it well.

I agree with you on the nails and hair conformation, also MSM with Silica (horsetail) complex. Works great for the hair but you will notice the difference in your skin ;).

This is what I want to know: I am taking a no-iron multi- vitamin, fish oil, vitamin D and Biotin. How do I know how much Biotin to take? I was reading somewhere that said I have to take a B-vitamin with my Biotin so is there something else I need to add to my arsenal. Any advice will be greatly appreciated from my vitamin gurus (LEEN)...:)
