Biotin Q & A


We can’t talk about Biotin without getting a little science-y, so with that said, let’s get right into it. Biotin is known as a vitamin H (coenzyme R) water soluble B vitamin. Of course, there are many pills and vitamins out there that contain this ingredient.

Yes, Biotin can do wonders for your hair, but it can also be harmful to your skin and hair – that’s is only if you do not take the correct precautions and do not have knowledge about it.

At this point, it makes sense to say that before you take Biotin, you should consult your doctor because if you are taking other medication, Biotin can weaken the effects of that medication.

Biotin is basically B complex vitamin that helps with your metabolism, and helps your body process energy. Some people take it due to their Biotin deficiency and to grow hair and nails, but that alone is not enough information for you. Yes, you have questions, right? No problem! Let’s answer them for you.

“Does Biotin really make your hair grow?” 

Yes and no. Yes, Biotin does contribute to your hair growth. When you take Biotin pills, the Biotin reacts with your cell enzymes and produces amino acids, which are stepping stones for the build up of protein. 

Your hair contains keratin (protein), therefore consuming anything which contributes to that causes hair growth. Now, your lovely strands grow each month naturally, which is where the answer “no” can be put into play. Your hair will grow regardless, but Biotin could possibly boost that growth.
