  • My mother took some hair pills and got cancer. I really do not recommend taking hair pills.

  • I'm not sure how they knew. But that was the only thing new she was taking...all her body changes started after she started taking the hair growth pills. She got tired, sick, couldn't eat, couldn't sleep, when they checked her out it turned out to be cancer....really when you think about it all this things over the counter now days seem to effect you one way or another and its normally not in a good way. I just don't suggest to anyone to take things inless your doctor gives it to you and you know ALL the side effects and risks.

  • the pills will just help make your hair healthy..

    remember to keep your diet healthy and use protein treatments, and a trim every 4-6 weeks to keep it in good shape..

    (note: it's not going to make your hair grow magically longer.. it will just give it the boost it needs to go HEALTHY.. so if you already have a healthy head of hair, these pills aren't going to do much if anything for ya)>

  • I take biotin and I have noticed a significant amount of hair growth in a few months. Also its really dependant on how much you take. I take about 5k mcg.

  • I take biotin twice a day and it has been working well for me. It doesn't make your hair grow but it makes it stronger and healthier which in turn helps you retain length.
