Could biotin help me grow a full beard?

Could biotin help me grow a full beard?

Misinformed?: Hair is made up of proteins. Not vitamins. If you do not have hair follicles on your face and cannot grow a beard vitamins will not in any way change your genetics or give you hair follicles where you have none. 5% of men do not have any facial hair follicles and up to 20% of men do not have enough follicles to grow a full beard. Biotin will not make a difference here. ...Read more

I'm 25 years old, dose Biotin helps me getting full thick beard?

No, and. ..: Biotin deficiency is rare, but can occur in persons with genetic mutations, on long-term antibiotics or anti-convulsants, or who eat a lot of raw egg whites. There is no good evidence that this over-the-counter supplement is the magic potion to thicken hair, grow hair, or prevent hair loss. Biotin is safe to take in the usual amounts, but not in the huge doses that some websites are suggesting. ...Read more

What is the age of growing full beard whole over my face I'm only 18, my local doctor said to take 5mg of VB7[Biotin}daily to get what I want. Is it ok?

Realize: That usually a man's facial hair pattern is set by his late teens through early 20s. It's entirely possible that may never grow a full, thick beard. And it would suggest anything is wrong with you, just like not every man is six feet tsll, not every man can grow a thick beard. Biotin isn't likely to hurt you but it's also unlikely to lead to you growing a thicK beard. ...Read more

Is Biotin safe to take as a teenager for beard growth, have a solid beard going at 17 but is patchy. I'm also on accutane if that matters. Thanks?

Safe but useless: Taking biotin is safe but it will not make your beard grow any better. Give your beard some time and it is likely to even out.

I recently cut my hair and it's shorter than the lady was supposed to cut it. Another lady said Biotin will cause my hair to grow longer. How long will that take? School is starting in about a month and I don't want to go back with the short hair

I recently cut my hair and it's shorter than the lady was supposed to cut it. Another lady said Biotin will cause my hair to grow longer. How long will that take? School is starting in about a month and I don't want to go back with the short hair

Worried about hair?: School is one of the most important aspects of a person's life. Her hair... well, that cannot be a big deal. That does not mean hair is not a big deal; it means hair length CANNOT be a big deal. It is mind over body. Hair length only becomes a big deal if one's brain fails to ignore all worries related to length. Biotin will make no difference. A student's hair can grow fine with no supplements. ...Read more
