that is what I take Country Maxi Hair  and 2 5000mcg biotin pills/day.
I noticed my Japanese straightener reverted too! hum.... Maybe it was growing faster than usual I dont know why mine reverted too. As long as its growing better I don't care  though. 

EVERYONE says that you have to take a supplement for at least 3 months to start seeing the increased growth from it because a lot of the hair that is about to grow out has been effected by the body chemistry over the last 1/4 year. The growth of anything taken from today on won't show up as hair on your head for about 3 months because there is a growth process under the scalp and a while as new growth even before you see any real difference in the hair that is on the head. So it takes a LONG time of CONSISTENT use for anything. Growing hair is not a one week process. It is a new lifetime process. I am giving myself a year as a realistic time period to see the length I want to start accumulating. If hair grows 1/4" to 1 1/2" per month, and it is dead by the time it comes out of the scalp but it lived in the follicle for a while before it came thru the scalp, you will not have grown any new hair in one week really no matter what you do... Youve got to wait a few months to see the benefit of anything new you do.

I take Biotin and MSM, so I am not sure if it's just the biotin thats contributing to these things:
For nails, within a week.
For the hair on my head, about 8 weeks.
For hair everywhere else, immediately LOL

So far I've been using Biotin 10,000 mcg at night after meals for 3 weeks now. My nails are growing super fast. As far as my hair, I have a qucik weave so I can't really tell how much it has grown, but it's been itching and my braids are super loose. So I'm asuming that the Biotin is workingWink.

I purchased Spring Valley brand biotin 10,000mcg with 100mg of kratin from Walmart for $5.94, but you can buy them in your local grocery store, or any place that sells vitamins...JUST BE AWARE THAT "mcg" IS NOT THE SAME AS ""mg".....10,000mcg is = to 10mg


Now, I've been taking 1 biotin 10,000 mcg with 100 mg keratin once a day for only 2 wks and my nails which have always been frail/brittle have grown and are so hard and strong in only 2 wks. I'm still waiting to see some growth with my hair so I'm going to keep taking to see if there's any changes with my hair.

My nails seem to grow faster than anything else!  It seems like I'm constantly cutting them.

I started taking spring valley 1000 mcg for about 3 weeks now. I have been noticing a few break outs(1-2 pimples) so I need to maintain drinking approximately 6-10 cups of water ( especially since my face is prone to acne). I'll give myself till the end of Sept of this yr to use biotin to see the benefits.
