How long before I can see hair growth from using 15000 mcg of biotin...?

How long before I can see hair growth from using 15000 mcg of biotin...?

Maybe never: 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 easily available, over-the-counter supplement is the magic potion to grow hair or prevent hair loss. Biotin is safe to take, but 15000 mcg per day is over 100 times the usual dose, so is not advisable. ...Read more

I use biotin vitamin 5mg & I take one a day. I use it for having heathly hair & growth. How long will I start seeing difference?

Won't help unless...: Hard to say- maybe never! Biotin deficiency can cause hair problems but if you are not deficient it may not help you. Many vitamins are needed for healthy hair, including b3, b5, b6, B12 ; a, c, d ; e. Zinc ; silica are also important, as are omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids. And vitamins are never a substitute for a healthy diet.

Which shampoo for fast hair growth and is biotin is good for hair and health and how many mcg of biotin is recommended per day?

None: There is no shampoo that can make your hair grow any faster than it normally does. They can't even stop thinning hair. There are currently only two drugs available that can help with thinning hair and they are Propecia (finasteride) and rogain. Vitamins and food suplements have not conclusively shown to be beneficial but many physicians often recommend biotin since biotin deficiency can cause hair loss. ...Read more

I'm 16 teen and I was wondering if it was bad to take biotin just for hair growth. If not then how much should I take.

Safe but...: Biotin is safe but is not likely to do much to help your hair grow unless you are deficient in biotin, which is uncommon. A reasonable dose is 5 mg.
However, you may get better results by taking a quality multivitamin, eating a healthy diet rich in organic fruits and vegetables, avoid junk food and getting adequate sleep.
