Ok so 31 days of growth is 1.8cm while taking msm and biotin etc

Some hairs measured at 1.7...some at 1.9 so I'm going with the average.

That's not bad I suppose as the normal average growth is 1.2 cm a month so that's a 50% increase !!!

I've only been taking all my supplements since 25th feb this year so that's only about 9 or so weeks.

My nails are definitely growing faster too, and I have a lot less hair fall.

Needless to say I'm very happy !!!!!!!!!

Is anyone still using msm?

After doing some research about it I bought the powder msm at a health food store and I've combined it with my moisture spray. I've been using it for the past week every night. Do you know when I'll start see results?

I will be using it again once I get my lazy self to GNC. I take it as a tablet personally and I have seen decent results. I would suggest in a month or two you should start seeing results.

What ratio are you mixing it?

I use about 2 tablespoons of msm, then I just add water and some aloe vera juice and pop it in the fridge so it doesn't go off.

Update...

Yay for msm!! I've been using this for about 2 months and started seeing real hair growth a few weeks ago. My new growth is so much shinier and softer, I have about an inch and a half of new hair growth! However, I did get a big chop last week... now my hair is just above my shoulders, but I had alot of damage so it needed to be cut off.

I've pretty much been spraying this on my hair every night but of course I've missed some days because of pure lazyness.. I'm thinking of also taking this orally, does anyone know if you can overdose with msm?

I'm pretty sure it is water soluable hence once your body has had enough it'll just be eliminated. Do check this cos I am currently taking a few different vitamins and my brain is a little frazzled from mid year exams/study. if you google it you should be able to get the DRI. I personally take 1500mg a day i believe or whatever the GNC tablet is.

Thanks for the info curlywurlygurly

Well...I took half a teaspoon of msm and I sorta got a weird reaction a few hours after taking it. My skin is acne prone, however, I eat quite healthy and drink alot of water. Probably after 3 hours of drinking msm my skin became very itchy and I suddenly broke out! I knew that it must have been the msm because my skin never gets itchy all of a sudden breaks out. Did my skin break out because it's going through a detox or it's an allergic reaction?

I'm really not sure. I suppose you could check it by doing a skin patch test perhaps. not sure though
