I’ve tried a few different products over the last few years, too much to list. Some include Minoxidil, Nioxin, and a slew of other products. Most of the products had mediocre results and/or lots of side effects.
I had taken biotin in the past and it had worked to some degree, but I never had the results that I seen other people talk about, so I stopped taking it.
About a month ago, I was invited on Tomoson by 100 Naturals to try their Advanced Formula Biotin with 10,000mcg for free in exchange for my honest review. I thought it was a great opportunity to give biotin another try since the dose I had taken in the past was really low compared to this at only 1000mcg.
What I love about the Advanced Formula Biotin was that a bottle has 90 veggie capsules, which is a three month supply. The pills also contain no chemicals, preservatives or artificial ingredients. It is 100% pure.
A few days into taking it, I had a few breakouts on my face. I did a Google search and it seemed to be quite common with biotin and people had recommended to drink more water, which I did and the breakouts quickly went away.
About a week into taking it, I noticed that my hair was growing already. I had just coloured my hair the day before I started taking it, I and I was already seeing my roots show. I was pretty excited as I didn’t expect it to start working this fast, if at all.
So now at nearly four weeks into taking it, some of the changes I have experienced are:
- Continued hair growth – I’ve been seeing a major increase in length and I have some new hairs growing around my hairline. Actually hair has been growing more quickly and abundantly EVERYWHERE on my body. Considered yourself warned, lol.
- Less shedding – What a difference! I used to notice an alarming amount of hair shedding when in the shower and I couldn’t run my hands through my hair without it resulting in a handful of hair. I was actually quite scared of the amount I had been losing in the last year or so. Now when I shower or run my hands through my hair, there are just a few strands.
- Stronger nails – I have pretty weak nails that bend quite easily, but they are growing a lot faster and are a little thicker.
- Shinier hair – My hair seems to be a lot shinier since taking it. Not sure if that is just my imagination or if it is from the biotin.
The only issue I have with taking it, as mentioned earlier, is the immediate breakouts if I don’t stay on top of my water intake. I’ve been having to drink about a gallon a day to keep the biotin related breakouts away.
I am quite pleased with the Advanced Formula Biotin from 100 Naturals. I would recommend it to everyone who has issues with hair loss or thinning, weak nails, or even just for faster hair and nail growth. 100 Naturals has a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so if you aren’t totally satisfied with the product for any reason, they will refund you.
