What biotin can do for your tresses is a well-known secret. It’s always been known but with the surge of natural hair, it’s become a go-to for healthier hair growth among naturals. Biotin is a coenzyme and vitamin B or vitamin H. It’s not just for hair growth, as it’s sometimes used for diabetes and supports the health of skin, nerves, digestive tract, metabolism and cells. It’s found naturally in eggs, brewer’s yeast, cauliflower, and cucumbers.

It’s been called “hair food” since it improves the health and strength of your incoming strands. The commonly suggested dosage is 5000 mcg a day as a supplement, but even if you don’t want to pop a pill or feel you are not getting enough of it in your diet, you can just buy it in your hair products.
