I started to research and I saw all kinds of Vitamins but the brand I decided to try is the Spring Valley - Hair, Skin & Nails, Plus Biotin Dietary Supplement Vitamins that can be found at Wal-Mart for US$12.88 for 240 tablets. Initially I asked people in the hair boards about the different dosage of biotin that should be taken and I heard really bad reviews when starting with high dosages, which led to bad break-outs and increase growth in abnormal areas. Yes I wanted to try out 5000mg of biotin; ummm that’s a no no. Who wants to grow facial hair? Certainly not me, but I did recognize that when they said “hair vitamin” it didn’t specify which ‘hair ‘but we all hope that its the hair on our head which would benefit the most. With that been said I asked my aunt to pick up two of the regular bottles [which only has 3mcg of biotin] as I was skeptical of the biotin one but instead she brought back the one which has 1000mcg of biotin. This was sitting on my table from November and I decided to try it out after I got a fresh relaxer to see if it will really work. On average I believe my hair grows at ½ inch per month especially the crown of my hair, the other parts like my nape [back of my head] grows at a slower rate, so if I see the same amount of growth or more growth, then I’ll know if the Vitamins work or not.
