If you not pregnant, but taken prenatal vitamin to promote hair growth. Do you need to take a additional Biotin vitamin because it only has 500mcg?

In brief: Unlikely to help

The vitamins you are taking are unlikely to help with growth of hair. Adding Biotin is not expected to make any difference.
You may wish to consult your doctor for other options like Rogain foam or pills

In brief: Marketing Marketing

All vitamins: simple molecules found in nearly all foods, so common that humans have not maintained every gene needed for every single step to make them on our own, out of other molecules.
Once discovered have become a way of marketing very inexpensive stuff from otherwise food waste or non-food products as near "magical" stuff for all kinds of claims. Study http://goo.gl/hTgfHM for perspective.
