    Yes, I take a pill everyday. I also use Nioxon shampoo and I am pleased with how fast my hair is growing back. I believe in it. Good luck.

      Hi Jenny, what do you consider a normal rate? Some people say 1/4 inch a month, some say a full inch! If I can get mine to grow faster, I will! I just started taking biotin a month ago, but i personally can't tell how fast it's growing. Are there some shampoos I can get at C VS for a reasonable price ?
