Me, wearing Hot For Chocolate by Revlon, and holding this bottle intently.

How was your Thanksgiving? I'm still stuffed and still visiting with family. Speaking of family, this week's Cheap Treat comes from a family request from earlier this year--my mom and sisters have gorgeous curly, fine hair (brown, blonde, and red, respectively). I have dark brown, wavy, wiry, thick hair. Anyway, my Mom and Lil Sis asked if I knew any tricks to get their hair to grow and I had a few. Our hair changes due to stress, age, etc, and I had a period of time where my hair seemed to be shedding more than usual. There are several tricks I used, and one I swear by is Biotin--it really works and is around $2.99+ a bottle. Your hair will grow! But, as many commenters have reminded me, ALL of your hair grows, not just the hair on your head. I saw no difference in my complexion, since I've never had acne, but others have commented that Biotin made acne worse/caused acne.
How much to take?
Between 1000-5000 mcg per day. The bottle above is 5000 micrograms, so take just one capsule. The brand used here is Spring Valley, and is from Walmart.
Can you take this with daily vitamins? Can I take if pregnant?
I did; however, I am NOT a Dr/qualified to give medical advice, so check with your Dr first. I've never been pregnant, so check with your Dr. once again.
