I’m not a big believer in biotin (but I am huge believer in multivitamins and also eating plenty of greens and avoiding all junk food). Biotin may help a tad I’m not saying it won’t. But if you are bald you are not going to get your hair back by taking biotin. I have a good head of hair especially for my age. But it did start thinning somewhat when I reached 45. I immediately started using Rogaine and then extra strength Rogaine. I will say that it prevented further hair loss, but didn’t grow more hair. I also use three different shampoos which may help as well. Nizoral, Purador and Surge. I use one for a week or so and then switch. I have a theory that the scalp adjusts to one and then any gains that I might get diminish. I have no proof this is true. But, if the body adjusts to one particular workout why not hair follicles? If you want to pick just one shampoo choose Nizoral there have been some clinical tests that it tends to prevent hair loss.
Also, for the past 12 months I have been using a laser helmet. And I’m happy to say that this has produced a tiny bit of hair growth. But again I’m not bald so keeping what I have and gaining a little is fine. I also noticed one other thing with the laser helmet, it has made my hair thicker so it looks like I have more hair. You only need to put it on every other day for 25 minutes. So, it’s not difficult to use. They said you will see a difference in 6 months and I did. So, I thought I would just keep going to see if I would get an even better result. I didn’t. But I kept what I had from the first 6 months so it’s worth it in my view.
So by all means keep taking the biotin as it will not hurt you and might help a little. But do try Rogaine and the three shampoos that I mentioned above. And if you are able to purchase a laser helmet, along with the other products discussed, you have the best strategy available. Laser helmets are not cheap, they range in price from $350 to as high as $900. Yes it is a lot of money but you are either committed to keeping your hair and possibly growing more or you’re not.
Good Luck My Friend,
