So for those of who have looked for ways to grow your hair naturally and quickly you may have heard about a vitamin called Biotin before. Biotin is a vitamin found in found in egg yolk, liver, and yeast and is said to promote healthy skin, nails and hair.
Now since my hair hasn’t grown in about 1 and a half years (yes, really) and I broke out into a rash the last time I used that natural hair growth shampoo I bought at the “health shop”, I was prepared to try just about anything before I opted for those hair extensions.
When I started my Biotin supplements I wanted to make sure I gave it the best possible chance of working so I took the Biotin daily together with my women’s multivitamin that already had a small amount of Biotin in it. I also did a hot oil massage every second week where I’d heat a bit of almond oil and coconut oil and massage it into my scalp. Something else I changed in my routine was that I wouldn’t brush my hair when wet as your hair is very fragile and weak when wet as opposed to when its dry.
So I did everything the way I was meant to right? Take a look at my before and after photo 2 months apart:
As you can see: NO DIFFERENCE. Did Biotin help my hair to grow? No it didn’t. Now don’t get me wrong, but just because it didn’t work for me doesn’t mean it won’t work for you. In fact, I love giving second chances so I went to go buy a second pot of Biotin supplements and will try it one more time just to be certain.
I must admit, I didn’t notice any real difference when it came to the health of my skin and nails. In fact, my nails started to become more brittle than when I was using my women’s multivitamin on its own… I expected the very least that the almond oil and coconut oil would make somewhat of a difference to my hair but also nothing. So now I’m back to square one.
If I do happen to see a difference after my continuation of the Biotin supplements over the next 2 months I’ll be sure to update this post. In the meantime, if you know of any tried and tested ways/methods/concoctions on how to make your hair grow naturally, please comment down below. Otherwise, a link to a good hair extension salon will also do.
