- Wedding: June 2012
Over a year ago I started taking biotin and folic acid (the two main parts of pre-natals that are good for hair) to thicken my hair. I have naturally fine hair, and after about 6 months people started commenting about how good my hair was starting to look.
Well, I ran out of the biotin and started taking only the folic acid, and now I swear I am shedding like crazy. Is this how these supplements work? If you dont always take them the hair will fall out? Is it the same with pre-natals, too? Once you stop taking them your hair thins? I didnt really want to be stuck taking these things forever. Not a big deal, but now I’m starting to get upset about my hair.
It could just be from the stressors of the past month or so with the wedding, school, house renovations…I dont know. I just was wondering if anyone else took these supplements and noticed their hair coming out more frequently after they stopped.
