Following this thread because I’m curious what’s working for others. I’ve been taking collagen for a few months and can’t really tell if it’s doing anything for my hair or nails. I also take biotin and a prenatal hoping it will help my hair grow faster, but I’m not seeing much of a difference. Maybe I need to try something else?

I take collagen supplements for the anti-aging and skin benefits but have noticed a difference in my hair.

I thought it was my imagination LOL..but my stylist also agrees that the strands feel thicker…

I just take biotin daily and use argan oil before bed (1-3 times a week).

I take lysine and Viviscal. I used to take biotin, but stopped that when I started the Viviscal two months ago. It’s too early to determine if my hair is growing in thicker, but I am definitely shedding less.

Wow that’s a lot of supplements lol. I take a vitamin B complex including biotin. I’m a vegetarian and when I’m not getting enough protein my nails and then hair are the first thing to show it.

Prenatal vitamins work for me.

Wowza that is a long list of stuff. I’d probably run that by your doc next time just to see what they think of it. Better safe than sorry.

Before I was pregnant, I took 1/2 pill of biotin every day (or every other day if I forgot). I couldn’t do a whole pill or else I’d breakout. It worked great, I actually thought my hair/nails were growing too fast.

Now that I’m pregnant, I take a prenatal (the rainbow kind) and a DHA supplement (Nordic Naturals something). Hair/nails grow like crazy but idk if that’s due to the prenatal/supplement or just hormones. Or the fact that I’m having a boy (if you believe old wives’ tales).
