ITs multiple choice
For me,- MSM was better for my overall health with it stopping cramps and stuff like that-
-biotin gave me the worst side affects, and it took forever for them to go away ( bumps)
-And dont really know which one grew my hair the fastest

Oooh, oooh! I'm with you on the Biotin, I was just too through with my face This went on for a couple of weeks, but now it's finally under control. Maybe drinking more water will help. Not sure on what it's done for my hair, but my nails are certainly thanking me!

Default Re: Your Results/ MSM & Biotin

with UltraNourish hair I have a little MSM and i need to get more. I have been using Biotin and when I look my braids out my new growth felt sooo nice. I also could be because I have started so many new Vits, but I htink Biotin is good.

I used Biotin and MSM at the same time. I had horrible zips. I stopped using both of them. I want to try MSM powder.

Biotin made my hair thicker and helped it grow. MSM made it softer and kind a changed the texture.

Same here but noticed more growth and thickness once I took a higher dosage of the biotin(when I start taking 1500 mcgs 2x a day) that was Rexall brand.I was also taking Folicure hair vitamins( so maybe w/the 3000mcgs and hair vitamins it helped grow fast).I've always taken only 2,000 mg of MSM(out of the few brands I've tried) The MSM also helped w/ hip pain that I had during pregnancy and after giving birth( when I walked felt like my hip was dislocated).

Default Re: Your Results/ MSM & Biotin

When I took MSM and Flaxseed oil pills my texture loosened up.
Previously, I needed a relaxer every 5 weeks.
After taking these combined, I was able FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE, to stretch to 8 weeks.

However, I'm concerned the Flaxseed kept me from losing weight.
I've stopped taking it for now.

But I've moved up to MSM powder (4,000 mg) bought from the Whole Foods store and started taking 2,000 mg biotin everday.

I'm on the pill and my period started a day later this month so I'm wondering if I'll also have a *lighter* period because of these vitamins.

Default Re: Your Results/ MSM & Biotin

I've only been taking MSM for a little over a month, so I have yet to experience all the benefits, but my skin looks healthier and my hair has grown out faster. I got a horrible zit after three weeks of taking MSM and it is still not completely gone (almost there ), but my skin in general looks better. I think the pimple was due to my taking the capsules for a month.
I've tried biotin a few times and it always breaks me out all across my face and the breakouts show no sign of stopping when I'm on it, so I'm done with biotin for good. A face full of pimples is not a good trade-off for longer nails.

MSM has helped my skin a lot.(pwder Vitamin shoppe)I've never had problems with breakouts or acne but I was born with bags under my eyes I've always used creams to reduce puffiness.The bags have smoothed out and I don't need the topical under eye creams.My skin looks firm.MSM has also helped with my back pain(crooked spine that got worse after my kids)

Biotin had my nails strong and long for the first time ever(my nails were always short and brittle)I stopped taking the biotin for a while(lazy)and the nails all broke and they are short again I have to add the biotin back into my regimen

Biotin, lawd LAWD I was a hot mess!! The worst of it is gone, but they're still hanging around.

*for everyone* so how long did the breakouts last for MSM? Immediately after I started them the breakouts started, which is why I quit so soon. But I'm thinking of trying the MSM again, but I may have to go into hiding for a minute if the breakouts were as bad as Biotin...

I know, once i stopped because of bumps, nails were gone.-but since hte nails grew so quick with biotin i was wondering if the hair did to, i wanted to let go of one of them, but from the poll and what u said, i think ima go ahead & keep both as well.
