I do need some boobies, but my sister says it does aid in hair growth. She was near bald last year and now she has a medium afro. This was the only supplement she was taking

I'm sure the jury is still out on that one, but I found this info on fenugreek:
 

Fenugreek for Lipid and Blood Sugar Control

Once again, modern science is shedding new light on a traditional folk remedy with delivers excellent health benefits to modern, active people. That remedy is Fenugreek, the seeds of Trigonella foenum-graecum. This tall annual herb is native to the Mediterranean, Ukraine, India and China. The plant bears pods filled with numerous light brown, diamond-shaped seeds which possess a sweet maple aroma, and are commonly used in cookery and flavoring.

The medicinal use of fenugreek seed was first mentioned 3500 years ago in the Egyptian Ebers Papyri. The seed is commonly used in Arabian, Greek and Indian medicinal traditions to treat congestion of the upper respiratory passages, control blood sugar, treat colic, flatulence, dysentery, diarrhea, indigestion with loss of appetite, diarrhea, chronic cough, and enlargement of the liver and spleen.

Today,modern science has revealed that fenugreek helps to control cholesterol and regulate blood glucose. Fenugreek seed lowers overall serum cholesterol, and reduces triglycerides. In one human study, 2.5 grams of fenugreek per day for 3 months significantly reduced these cardiac risk factors. These activities are linked to a group of soluble fibers, most notably galactomannans. The galactomannans also possess fat-sequestering properties, binding directly to dietary fat and reducing its absorption into the body. If you consume fenugreek or its extract with a meal, some of the fat from that meal will be eliminated from your body, without producing weight gain.

The glucose regulating, anti-diabetic properties of fenugreek seed are linked to a novel free amino acid, 4 hydroxyisoleucine. This compound stimulates insulin secretion, thereby limiting the extent to which blood glucose is elevated. 4 hydroxyisoleucine promotes insulin secretion and inhibits the rise of blood glucose, thus helping to stabilize blood sugar and reduce body fat production. In one human study, 15 grams of fenugreek daily significantly reduced glucose levels after meals.

Today fenugreek shows value as a heart-healthy, anti-diabetic agent with potential for weight control due to its content of fat-sequestering galactomannans and a substance called 4-hydroxyisoleucine.

Germanyís Commission E recommends a daily dose of 6 grams of powdered seed, which is best taken soaked in water or juice and then drunk. Fenugreek supplements vary. Some are capsules of powdered seed, while others are more concentrated extracts are standardized to 4 hydroxyisoleucine.

From what I've read, it works entirely different from hair vitamins so you can probably add it to current vitamin regimen.
