ooh... the biotin only cost me about 3 bucks... I'll try it and see what happens.  Does msm cause random facial hair?

I take both. 5k mcg biotin and 1k mg msm

When i was taking the biotin alone I didn't notice as much growth as when I started MSM....

Let's just say my hair is growing like CRAZZY!

_popupControl(); Taking msm does not cause facial hair to grow.  It makes your hair/ new growth much softer and it extends the phase of your hair

I just started taking 300 mcg of Biotin as of recently; is that too low of a dosage? Will I still get the same results?

Natural Hair Loss Remedies

B-vitamin deficiencies are common. Some people, especially people who are blood type A, do not absorb B vitamins very well from food. In particular a vitamin in the B family called biotin is crucial for proper hair and nail growth. In high doses, 5-8 grams (5000-8000 mg) daily of biotin can be effective in restoring head-hair growth, with no known side-effects. Some specialty shampoos feature biotin for this reason.

Ha ha...after posting on Tues 4/7 I raised my MSM from 2,000 to 2,500 mcgs.  I take 6,000 mcgs of biotin as well.  I like what I see.

How many mgs can you take at a time before your body releases the excess?? I heard that your body uses what it needs every 12 hours
