    I take biotin and MSM. You have to drink lots of water though since they're water soluable and if you don't you'll break out. I've seen a definite improvement in my hair so maybe you can try it.

    i also take biotian, i take it on and off, right now im back to taking it for the last week. i also heard that evening primrose oil is great, i take it as well, (helps brain development and helps with skin issues.) Vit B helps as well, and protien. ive heard about girls drinking protein shakes to help with the hair growth.

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

    Hair, Skin and Nails vitamins are good as well. Try Sundown or any similar brand.

    Any supplement regime should be *targeted* to the individual: their diet, physical activity, health issues, medication, age/ gender etc.

    Micronutrients work synergistically and in opposition, you can very easily do more harm than good to your health *randomly* supplementing individual or small groups on aesthetic/ vanity grounds especially mega dosing.
    2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG. Past bra strap length heading for waist.

    CO-wash: Inecto coconut/ Elvive Volume Collagen
    Treatments: Komaza Care Matani, coconut/ sweet almond/ fractionated coconut oils, Hairveda Sitrinillah
    Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss Ultimate Volume, various Elvive
    Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Au Naturale styling gelee
    Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.
    Experimenting with: benign neglect

    That's great. Ha! I was thinking the same thing concerning my roots. Please keep us updated. I'm thinking about purchasing a bottle soon. I've tried them before, but I didn't really keep track of my growth.

    Since I've been bad in my hair care lately.. I can't see if it helps..

    But I've been taking Glucosamine and Chondroitin for my joints and a Geritol as my multi and my nails are growing super FAST! So fast that they look raggedy because I wasn't expecting it. LoL!

    Can't hurt. :)

    Glucosamine and Chondroitin have absolutely no proven benefits for joints.

    In the EU supplements containing them have had to remove all claims that they actively help with joint health. They now make claims like they are found in joint tissue or cartilage.

    If you have joint pain or joint issues then you are better of upper your supplement levels of vitamin D. The level in multi-vitamins is far too low if you are even slightly deficient. (Lack of it does effect hair growth.) However you should get a blood test done before hand before to check your vitamin D, calcium and other bone enzyme/protein levels.

    G/C never did a damn thing for my arthritis, even though my doctor told me to try it. Annoyingly, my dog takes a G/C supplement for her hip dysplasia and it works really well for her! What does work is cutting out sugars and refined flours. It takes about ten days, but there is a big difference (and you feel it if you slip).

    Firefox is right. Supplement with caution and for known deficiencies. Everything you take goes through your liver and kidneys, and if you have undiagnosed problems, you could end up being very, very sorry. Don't think that you would necessarily have symptoms, either, because you can actually have significant damage and not know it. I don't think it's worth it.
    3a/b, F, normal porosity

    Suave conditioner, LAL gel

    Sorry it didn't work for some, but it worked wonders for me!! I was struggling with bad joint pain. Prescription drugs numbed it a little, but didn't end it. I bought the G/C and now they don't hurt. This post was not about joint pain as I recall. It was about hair growth. Granted I posted about nail growth but hair and nails are so closely related in these miracle growth cures.

    I'm not selling the supplements.

    @pinkmouse09 I'm on it! That just encouraged me to drink more. Thank you. :)

    I also make sure to take fish oil (or DHA) , those omegas 3s are also important !

    Also, really focusing on a healthy diet, plenty of water intake, eliminating stress can all help with hair help. Im trying to wean myself off a diet soda addiction , I drink about 12 ounces a day. Trying to switch to icetea (green tea , rooibos tea and others) instead.
    All bets off on finding the perfect products for the curls - focusing on regrowing (50%) hair loss due to
    A) Depo Provera (injectable birth control)
    B) seborrheic dermatitis
    C) stress/diet

    I take omega 3 fish oil everyday...the Carlson brand. I also drink tons of water and workout on a regular basis; eat lots of fruits and veggies, etc. my hair grows at lightening speed basically. It's like hilariously fast...to the point that when I'd gotten bad haircuts in the past it was just like, meh...it'll grow out in a couple months..
