Would anyone like to join me for a Biotin or Hair Skin Nails (HSN) Vitamin Challenge?
I have tried certain methods for hair growth from the outside in, now I'd like to try from the inside out. I just touched up my color, so I will have a clear line of demarcation as long as I start ASAP. My planned start date is going to be May 20, 2012. But feel free to join the Challenge at any time.
 
  • What Vitamin are you taking Biotin or HSN?
  • How many MCG of Biotin is in it?
  • How many pills are you taking daily?
  • Post a starting pic and ending pic after 60 days. (A picture is worth a thoughsand words)

The Biotin comes in various incrememnts, I'm buying the 1000 MCG formula. I chose this one because I can increase it by taking an additional pill, and I wanted to start with a lower dose in case of an adverse reactions, starting with 6000 MCG seemed a bit scary to me :-) I'll be purchasing the walmart brand (spring valley)this weekend.

My Plan is to start with one pill daily for the first 2 weeks, and increase to  2 pills (one with breakfast and one with Dinner) for the next 4 weeks (if no bad side effects happen) and then drop back down to 1 a day the last 2 weeks to kind of taper me off so it's not such a shock to my system. Also I'll probably just make a video instead of pics, feel free to do the same :-)

Come on folks you all said you wanted more challenges, well here is a good one. Even if you are already taking vitamins, a challenge makes your more conscious of taking them daily to stay on schedule. And you can chart your progress. Sometimes you only see change when you write things down.

I'll be "lurking" if you don't mind!  I've been taking Biotin for quite some time now and want to see what progress you ladies get from it.  Right now I am taking Mega Hair Vit by Country Life and it has 1200 mcg (two pills at 600).

Feel free to lurk, renee728. Have you seen any difference since you started taking them?
