I am thinking of taking MSM. I would like to know what your results are. Did it really benefit your hair or did you get other results that you liked please vote. I reall interested in the other benefits than just hair growth, TIA.

Yes MSM has been great so far! It has helped my new growth, which is softer and I noticed some growth spurts round the beginning with it. But I haven't been taking it regularly to really follow it through. It also helped my skin!!
I'm all for vitamins and supplements for healthy livin, so MSM is great for me.

I've noticed some hair growth, but it could be due to other things (healthy diet, Lenzi's Request, vitamins). It definitely makes my new growth less coarse, though.

Default Re: MSM BENEFITS!!!

Today makes 5 weeks since I have been taking it and I don't have any miraculous results or changes that other members have. I take about a full tablespoon of the crystals. One thing I do notice is that I get a bit gassy sometimes. I remember some of the members saying this , its like light airy gas . I want MSM to help push out a lot of the toxins that I have inside of me. That's one my main reasons for taking it. I've also read that it's good for regularity and sugar control, yeast infections, digestive problems. Again, if it's making folks pass gas, i'm hoping maybe it will help with making more regular too and take care of my digestive tract. I made a promise to really stick with it to see if I see any changes in my body, hair and nails. I just re ordered 2 more 1lbs. MSM crystal flakes from a1msm.com so I see to it that I take it for at least 3 months b4 I decide to let it go. Plus, for some reason I'm getting use to drinking it everday in my water. I guess mentally I think I'm really doing something good for my body .

I forgot to mention, my allergy symptoms have subsided greatly since I started MSM. And, I don't get pains in my knees/feet when I exercise anymore.

MSM has also made my hair less coarse. I have pretty good skin but it has definitely made it much more radiant.

Thumbs up Re: MSM BENEFITS!!!

MSM loosened the curl pattern of my incoming NG (softer texture) and greatly decreased some pretty significant shedding I had going on at the time. Haven't taken any in over 7 mos just due to slacking, but I used to take 1 capsule (1000 mg ea) a day. It is also a great detoxifier, which is why I will resume taking it.

Default Re: MSM BENEFITS!!!

I used it for the first relaxer stretch when I first joined and the new growth was more manageable, soft. Was not itching to get hair relaxed. I stopped using it after my last relaxer just to see if there was really any benefits, well my NG is still 4a but not as soft. And I got a little less growth this time around. So it is a keeper for me until I reach my goal length.

Also I started back on it last night and it had me on my back. The headaches with it is no joke. You have to drink alot of water with it

I take 2000 mg/day (1 level teaspoon) of the DistilPure MSM flakes. Very pure, and very effective!

And ITA with whomever said that it's hard to tell if your hair is growing with the MSM! My NG is so much softer than normal, it's similar in texture to the hair I relaxed (underprocessed) the last time I had a touch-up. I should have no problems stretching this time around.
