    I took Silicea for 3 months and it didn't do anything for me. Not to my hair, nails or skin.

    Thank you all ladies for the feedback.

    After more thought and research what I found was that there are three kinds of silica.

    Inorganic
    vegetal
    and orthosilic (sp) acid.


    Each one is better than the other.

    Vegetal is supposed to be better than the inorganic form, but the acid is supposed to be the best.


    So I ave decided to try the Biosil in combination with MSM for 30 days to see what happens.

    I like the biosil. I can't comment on the hair or nail growth yet, but my skin is really clearing up and glowing and I have just started taking it this month.

    I wanted to add that I am taking about 15 drops at night vs the 10 they rec on the bottle. I may up to 20 to see what happens.

    I use horestail silica in my scalp oil along w/ castor oil and aloe. Its the Moe Grow Hair Oil recipe that I found on LHCF and my hair drinks that mix up.
    I can't tell if my hair has grown any since its only been two weeks and I don't use it everyday, maybe ever three days. The only thing I notice is how thick my new growth is coming in....its mega thick. :thumbleft:
    Happy hair growing.

    Thats interesting. I thought about topical use as well, but was unsureif the results would be worth it.

    Thanks for sharing your experience!
