My hair is actually growing in now that all the chemo is out of my system, but we've reached the awkward "looks like an extra from a 70's porno" stage of post shaved head. It was really cute a month ago but now I just look ridiculous. I even got called Sir the other day, this hair no longer works for me. So I'm in a hurry to grow it out to a less weird length. Biotin is one of the best things you can take to help with nails and hair growth, and for the last week or so I've been testing out a liquid Biotin from a company cutely called Rapunzel.
This is a liquid supplement as oppose to the chewables I've tried in the past. You are suppose to place two droppers full under your tongue and let it get absorbed that way. I'd guess two droppers full is maybe a teaspoon, so your not going to have a whole mouth full of this stuff. And it tastes like cream soda, which is a big plus. Last time I had to take something under the tongue like this it tasted like battery acid. I figure one bottle will last you about a month, which seems to be the size choice of most supplements. I don't know whether a liquid will absorb better than a solid, but it is a different way to get your daily Biotin if you don't like the other options available.It looks like a serving is 300 mg of Biotin as well according to the bottle.
I feel like these sorts of items take the whole bottle to decide if they are really working or not, but I think my hair is growing in nicely right now and I haven't seen a ton of shedding so I like to thing it's working. Would I choose this over the NeoCell ones I love? This item is $18.99 with free Prime shipping. which isn't bad but the NeoCell chews are a few bucks cheaper. So unless I'm noticing a huge difference between the two once I finish the bottle I'll stick to my chews just because of the price difference.
