i’ve had alot of friends recommend this to me as well. I never taken them just for hair growth though but i think i need to start. my hair is so brittle and falls out so easily. it needs all the help it can get. haha

My mom talked to a hairstylist at a salon who said to take Biotin-it’s in the prenatal vitamins & helps make hair grow, but you get too much iron or calcium or something from taking the prenatals. I’m about to start taking biotin (as soon as I buy it 😉 ) & i’m pretty excited!

I don’t think it’s a calcium OD necessarily, but more like it’s more difficult for your body to break down such a large amount at once. Just make sure to drink lots and lots of water. (Which you should be doing anyway!!)

  I started taking them to try to get my hair to grow too. My nails are in great shape but nothing with the hair yet that I have noticed but it’s only been 2 weeks & it’s harder to gage since it would take a big difference to make me notice

I had a doctor’s visit about a month ago specifically b/c my Fiance and I are planning to have a baby right away. I just couldn’t stomach the thought of prenatal vitamins so my Dr. suggested that I chew two flintstone vitamins each day and that would be just as good as taking prenatal vitamins. I am noticing that my hair and nails are growing like crazy. So for those brides to be that want the same results w/o having to swallow a gigantic prenatal vitamin…Flintstones is the way to go.

I was taking generic hair and nail vitamins but switched when my doc suggested to take prenatal due to increased stress … wedding planning lol, have noticed some hair growth but it takes a while to notice a difference.

To clarify, I already had a doctors appointment, but talked to my doctor about prenatal vitamins while I was there, just to make sure there wasn’t an issue taking prenatal vitamins when I have no intention of getting pregnant.  My doctor gave me the green light so I will be picking up pre natal vitamins as soon as I’m out of my regular vitamins.

I also just started prenatals. Fiance and I are going to start trying for a baby soon after the wedding, and I am trying to be as healthy as possible. I’m also trying to grow my hair out and while I have not seen a difference (after 3 weeks) Fiance says he thinks my hair is smoother.

They make smaller size vitamins (the generic brand of prentals at Target and tiny in comaprison to One A Day Womens multis) and ones with less calcium. I take an additional calcium supplement since I don’t drink a ton of milk.

I found out that my Flintstone gummies have folic acid in them! Adult multi-vitamins upset my stomach too much.  I also take a super B vitamin. I’ve been doing this for 6 months now and my hair and nails look great.

I am taking Biotin for that reason and it seems to be workly.  I also have very brittle, thinning, hair as of the last few years…so I’ve been buying these.  Hope that helps!

We’re baby-trying so I’ve been taking them for about a month.  I can’t say I’ve seen much difference in hair or nails though.  Of course that could be because I’ve done nothing but throw it up in a pony since the weddinge…

I know this is an old post but I thought I would let you guys know you can take folic acid supplements, which is what makes your hair grow. I had problems with the prenatals when I was pregant. They can cause major constipation from the extra iron.

If you take a prenatal with orange juice it helps the iron breakdown and helps reduce constipating side effects.

I definitely noticed a difference in my nails and I think my hair got stronger and grew a little faster.

I may be in the minority but I was taking a folic acid supplement for a bit and my  hair and nails were growing like crazy!!
