Update on biotin for hair loss

Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Thursday, June 07, 2007 9:17 PM (Eastern)

It's been about nine months since I started taking a biotin supplement for my (lifelong) thin hair: The LPF Beauty Blog biotin page

There is a definite difference. I don't have gobs of hair, but I feel my hair is noticeably thicker, in the sense that I don't feel that self-conscious about it anymore.

I went back and tried to find something in the way of "before and after" pictures, here goes:

May 8, 2007

I realize it's not a perfect comparison, since I don't have a recent photo with my hair worn the same way as before, and I'm too lazy to take one now--I've had my hair up all day since I washed it, so it would look funny. But I will take a good picture at the one-year fact remind me, I'll take the one-year picture at the same location too (I took the pic on the left by putting the camera inside a microwave oven).

It does look good!
Did you happen to notice any difference in the growth rate? Did it grow any faster? I'm always wanting my hair to grow FASTER. Maybe if I'd stop chopping it off all the time. :-\

I'm horrible at remembering to take any pills, I'm impressed with your stick-to-it-tivity.

I don't need anymore hair, but I do want it longer.

Thanks! :)

Nope, I have not noticed my hair growing faster (which is good for me, since that would just mean more root touch-ups and haircuts :D ). I have seen several people post on other boards, that their hair grew faster while taking biotin, so I'll guess it's pretty much individual.

I'm so bad at remembering to take pills, that I made it my New Year's Resolution this year--to remember to take my vitamins and also not get two-inch roots? :p

You look great in your May 8 pic :)

Hi Katherine,

Thanks! That's very nice of you to say.

My daughter took the May 8 picture...hmmm...I'd say the biotin supplement helped some with my eyebrows too. I have those Asian "why bother?" eyebrows, they've always been on the thin side, but I feel they've filled out at least a bit lately.
