@Aggie, thanks I thought it was important that I share it with my LHCF sister.

I took my vitamins on a fairly consistent basis in the past, but since I got pill case, I haven't missed a day.

The pic is the exact one I purchased.

This challenge really helped me today. Voice in my head kept telling me "your hair will never grow so why bother" but I refused to listen and took my vitamins anyway.

Would love to hear suggestions on how to stay motivated when it seems as though you aren't making any progress. It's only been a couple of months for me but it seems like forever. Thanks in advance.

Default Re: 6 Month Vitamin Challenge (Nov-April)

Am steadily making way through pills.

@cynd have you noticed any change in nails, skin or energy etc.
For myself, my nails have gone back to the thick, long and whiter condition I was used to. I was asked by my bf if I was bleaching so I can only imagine he really meant my skin was glowing. kmt.

As I store them in my necklace I find it easier than when I had the standing pill box..but I've been taking them since mid/late Oct. Actually September.

If you really haven't noticed anything check the mg dosage.
Nioxin has 2mg of b6 but with B vitamins it's better to get around the 50-100mg mark or time release. This probably applies to many vitamins/minerals but you get what I mean.

Although you may not notice differences now just keep going and I'm sure you'll be suprised.

@Vintage queen: Thanks for the response. Almost immediately I saw a huge difference in my nails. They started growing like crazy and seemed much thicker/harder and didn't break as easily. That was from taking biotin every day and multivitamins most days. After about a month of that my nails regressed and are now back to breaking if I look in their direction. It's almost like the biotin, etc. stopped working. I've tried to kick it up a notch by adding MSM and not missing my multivitamin. I do see a little progress with my hair but some days I think it's my imagination. Anyway, I took my pills today...

@cynd it isn't your imagination. Don't watch it too much and prepare for longer hair/visualise what you'll do.
Try different brands/b-complex but most of all don't worry.
If you have faith, pray about it too. Nothing is too small for God to handle. If it concerns you, it concerns Him and He over answers.


I must edit my post as I've just seen that I've been taking mine since mid September.

@Vantage queen: Thanks. I'm trying to resist jumping from one product to another, etc. Funny how I've lived all these years without really getting to know my hair and now that I know that I've been doing wrong, I'm impatient for results. I'll give visualization a try (I've used it in the past for weight loss and I know it helps me) and of course faith.

Hi I want in ladies! Especially since I severely lack in the vitamin area. AND for some weird reason I don't think it helps with 'my' growth but I am willing to see through this challenge. *shrugs* I will be taking Centrum Chewables-Multivitamin/Multimineral Supplement as of today.

I've been taking my vits. Haven't missed a day.

I was looking at the Dicotemecious *spelling* Earth thread and they said a great way to get silica into your system is to put about one tablespoon in a gallon of water and drink that water. Continue to fill up the jug with that same DE in it.

Anyone doing this? I think I'm going to start.
