Biotin.: For improved hair growth and health, try 2-5mg of biotin each day. For an increase in speed of growth, try the aveda or nioxin product lines for shampooing and conditioning. Also, over the counter topical minoxidel or rogaine (minoxidil) may speed the process but could be somewhat drying to hair that you already describe as dry.
