I love Biotin.  I definitely saw stronger hair and believe it grew faster also have a bad haircut.  My nails are also stronger than they were before.  Have you tried the OPI nail strengthener applied directly to your nails? That seems to help, as does regular manis.

I have not had any experience with facial hair while taking Biotin! Also, prenatal vitamins are amazing!!!! Over the counter and they work wonders on brittle nails and weak hair!

I love biotin, I’ve never had any problems with facial hair from it. I take an oral supplement every morning.

I just started taking Biotin about a week ago. I think my nails feel stronger but I also gave my gel a break and really doubled up on my OPI nail envy. 

I’m still waiting on the proposal (coming soon I hope!) so to keep my nails “ready” lol I’m using Dior nail glow along with my OPI protein nail Envy. 

I even found a Sally Hansen whitening pen for the underneath white tips of my nails. 

Definitely try the protein!

Have you tried Fish oils?? When I take them my hair and nails get so much healthier!!!  I also just started taking a Vit. B complex with folic acid and biotin.  Best bet to contact someone that can let you know if you need extra vit. and what your body is missing.

MuseForever:  I’ve been taking 1000mg of Biotin everyday for almost two months to help grow in my overplucked eyebrows. I think it has helped with my brows and I’ve not noticed any other unwanted facial hair.

Both biotin and fish oil work wonders when taken correctly. I take both supplements.  Biotin def helped strengthen my hair after my stylist botched (see: overprocessed) my hair color application and caused my hair to thin. Haven’t seen any negative effects.

MuseForever:  Nothing can actually make your hair grow faster, just stronger. And Biotin is great for that! I have also noticed my usually brittle nails are super strong. No facial hair, that seems like an unfortunate side effect. Do they have dark hair? Because it might be hair that was already there but was super-fied by the Biotin.

I take biotin for 2 years. I don’t notice a difference. I do have the misfortune of some noticeable facial hair depending on what foundation/powder I use. 

I have PCOS but I don’t want to rule out that is the cause

MuseForever:  i take it and love it! No facial hair over here but have definitly noticed my hair falling out less and my nails grow like crazy! I actually have to trim them because they just dont break anymore. I take 5000mg a day with my multi vitamin which has a little.

I take biotin as an effort to strengthen and make it grow faster after I decided to get a pixie cut. I haven’t had any facial hair things go on, but my nails have definitely grown faster, as has my hair, and my hair feels a lot healthier – less crackly frizzy, more sleek and flexible. My daily vitamin has a little, and I take I believe 1000mg a day.
