Default GNC Nourishair/ Hair Skin nails Vits Poll

So im still taking the GNC Nourishair vits twice a day with my multi vit as well . i hear alotta curlies are also taking the GNC hair skin and nail as well. Just a poll of how many curlies still keeping up their vitamin routine and getting some great results between these 2 vitamins. My hair is growing pretty fast , i havent had a cut since middle of march and thats a long time for me , i usually get a trim every 6-8 weeks or so. I do know that by summer my hair tends to grow even faster so i cant wait to see what my results be by the end of summer.

I haven't been taking a multivitamin with my hair vits because the A & D aren't water soluble like say C is. I think I might have to start though. The hair skin and nail vit doesn't have iodine and some things that my multi and the regular hair version has.
This is what I get for switching vitamins grrrrrr

My hair grew 1.5 inch last month. In a week it will be a month since the last measuring and it's grown an inch. Which for me is still fab but I've been shedding more with the vit switch too.



If you feel well with the multi and the hair vits maybe I'll try that.

Medusahair the GNC multi vit i take i purposely got 1 that says on the bottle no iron or iodine , i dont mind iron but a lil too much isnt good , plus i eat healthy stuff that has iron in it so im not hurting for it.. but u can get one with iron and iodine in it..i ALWAYS eat something before i take my vits and the other day i took them but totally forgot i hadnt eaten and 10-15 mins later i was feeling a lil tad nauseous. then i figured it out and ate right away lol .
Edit : I havent shedded with these two vits combined , but then again i really havent had a shedding prob . the only time i ever did was when i got a perm and was shedding like crazy for the first few weeks , the shedding eventually calmed down , nothing to where i was looking bald. The only time i see a few hairs is in the shower and thats on 2-3 day hair . with sleeping on it and havent really needing to comb my hair ( mabye finger combing if needed ) , spritzing with water and thats it of course im gonna see a few hairs by then , but nothing major.

I take Dollar General brand Hair, Skin, and Nails vitamins. I looked into Nourishair and the other GNC one, but they don't contain any calcium. I like the DG one because it is essentialy a multivitamin with biotin, silica, and some other things added to it. It doesn't have any iron, but like you said, tini, too much iron can be bad. I can't take One-A-Day vitamins because of the iron content. I would eat with them and still get nauseous. I read that as long as you have meat in your diet, you should get enough iron. Many cereals are fortified with iron, too.

I've only been taking the DG vitamins for about a month, so I haven't seen any change yet. My nails though are stronger and grow quickly. Guess that is a good sign. Do you take the GNC formulas twice a day, or 3 times? I'd thought about trying Nature's Bounty hair vitamins, but you have to take them 3 times a day. 2 is enough for me - I have a hard enough time remembering to do that. I'm going to try these vitamins for a month or two more, and see what happens.

I take the GNC Nourishair twice a day like the bottle says.. i use to take just one a day but amped it up , the multi vit i take just once a day , its a time release vit so im getting it thru out the day , i can take it twice a day but i just dont , i might amp that 1 up later.

That's good, only twice a day, but do you feel you need a multivitamin with Nourishair? I would take a calcium supplement with it but would be afraid that a multi on top of that would be overdoing it. I guess if it's time release, though, that may make a difference (?). I'm definitely going to consider Nourishair if my current hair vitamins don't do anything for me.

Well the guy at GNC rec a multi vit there when i was getting more nourishair pills. i was looking 4 one anyways to take with the nourishair. he advised that it be ok to take both and went down the list of % of vits between the two , i was taking the nourishair for a few weeks before the multi vit came into mind. ive been taking both now for about 3-4 months with no probs.

Edit: the time release i like cuz i know im getting it all the time during the time , i guess thats why i dont feel i need to take it twice a day. and i can see ( excuse the yuck ) that i go to the bathroom and expell what i dont need .

I'm debating taking this-someone told me that when she started using this she noticed more body hair as a result. I don't know if I should trust her opinion, so since everyone here has been using it for some time, I wanted to know if they noticed anything from it.

I have the normal amount of hair everywhere but my head, I have more on that. I'm not particularly hair to begin with though and I can only speak for myself.
