Should I start Biotin?
« on: October 22, 2018, 08:11:22 pm »
I was thinking about taking biotin to help my hair, but I heard that it can actually make your beard hair stronger as well? I'm starting laser soon, so I was wondering if I should just avoid biotin until after my laser treatments. Thoughts?

I've been taking it daily for my nails.  I haven't noticed any ill effect on my facial hair.
Wind blew in, cloud was dispersed
Rainbows appearing, the pressures were burst
Breezes a-singing, now feeling good
The moment had passed like I knew that it should

Took it for months and noticed a difference in the quality of my hair...I think YMMV is part of the answer as I noticed strong hair but very little for my nails...

It might affect body hair too. I've been using biotin for a while at the time I started HRT and my body hair not thinned or become less black (nearly 6 months on proper dose). I found later that biotin might be the cause of it.

From what I've heard, it can make your hair grow everywhere so be careful.
