I need your opinion ladies...which one does better at growing hair?

What are the pros and cons to each? You may probably recommend brands that contain these ingredients, but I just need a thread that directly talks and compares the two ingredients ALONE.

So think of this as a...showdown. ;o

FIGHT!

I took both and I'm not sure which one works best. Biotin is great for thickening up the hair and msm allegedly lengthens the grow phase.

I'm such a peaceful person...lol....so my 10,000 mcg of Biotin and my 4,000 mg of MSM work peacefully together to create long hair....lol.....

On  the serious side, I can't say that one works better than the other, but the combo of the two definitely works!!!

Great thread! My fotki shows that Biotin has given me some really great results. I tried the MSM, but I got these really weird headaches that wouldn't go away with Excedrin ( I chronically suffer from them) so unfortunately, I had to stop.
 
I'm trying to figure out how to include them in my regi again! I could use a longer growing phase soo..I'll cast my vote for Biotin!

I too can't say one is better than the other but they work!!  I have been taking them both for about 3 months and my hair is growing nicely and my nails - thank ya lawd!!  I used to wear acrylics till they just made my nails so thin and horrible I stopped back in Nov 08.  It took 2 months for them to look half way decent but still did not grow past the finger.  After just 1 month of this combo - Pa-Dow!  My nails look better than the acrylic cuz they are thinner than the thicker acrylic look but I have the same french manicure (thanks to Incoco) with the shiny look.  Very happy!  The nails alone is worth the supplements IMO. Smile   I take 6,000 mcgs of Biotin and 2,000 mcg of MSM.

I just brought some biotin last week 1,000mcg @target so it seems that you ladies are taking a larger dosage, how do you know a safe amount to take?
