they actually make hair/skin/nail vitamins that I know made my nails super strong.  I know there are generics and GNC has a good line

I’m 9 months pregnant and my prentals haven’t made any change to my nails – they did make my hair grow faster though….

@eagle:  there is biotin in the hair/skin/nails vitamins, but as far as I know it does not cause acne.  There are actually no known links between nutrition and acne that have been proven through scientific research (I learned this during my degree in nutrition) so it seems to be an individual reaction.  If you start breaking out then stop the biotin, but it doesn’t cause acne for most people.

One warning about taking anything for hair growth…it makes ALL hair growth more!

I took vitamins and sure enough was having to shave my legs every day and sometimes by the end of the day, I would already feel they were subtly!

I think you can get a keratin treatment to improve condition and add length!  My hair appeared about 2 inches longer after mine and it wasn’t very wavy.  Just make sure you get one that is formaldyhyde free!

Folic Acid has down wonders for my fingernails.  I’ve been taking folic and a basic multi-vitamin since December 2010 and my nails are the best they’ve ever been!

I’ve tried the hair/skin/nails one and have continuously had better luck with prenatals.

Are there any other side affects to prenatal vitamins?  Will my boobs grow as well?

 

I think maybe I should try those!

Prenatals have helped my nails get stronger, but not grow faster. My hair, however, is growing like a weed. It’s grown 5 inches since November 12. 
I highly recommend it. Besides, I read you should start taking them a year before you want to get pregnant, so when that time comes, you’ll be good to go. 🙂

I’ve just started taking prenatals in the hopes of improving hair, skin and nails. I’ll see how I get on.

The prenatals I have been taking, other than making my hair awesome 🙂 have made my nails grow faster and become harder. I’m also trying to get over my 22 year old nail biting habit for the wedding.
