Default Has snyone ever tried biotin for hair loss?

A client of mine stopped by my business today to get some services done.. He happen to make a comment about my hair.. He said, "your balding on the back of your head." I said, I know this.. I told him openly that I was taking propecia.. He asked if I was taking rogaine and I said yes.. He told me to try Biotin.. I have never tried biotin.. Has anyone ever tried biotin on this forum for Male pattern baldness? I went to my local pharmacy CVS and bought biotin and saw palmetto.. So far I took 1 pill of each.. So I'm talking to a good client of mine that had the nerve to bring up my hairloss.. I told him that I had a hair transplant and had the whole front of my hair restored.. I told him that the crown was not touched.. He was kinda in shock that I brought this to his attention.. I asked him if he had a hair transplant and he said no. I was kinda boggled the fact that his hairline was very pluggy.. I think that he was being a little secretive about his hair transplant.. So all this conversation went on this morning around 8:30 am.. BTW he is a prominent heart surgeon at a hospital in the area.. So I asked him what do you think about my hair transplant? Does it look natural.. He said the front looks good but get on biotin and vitamin D for the back.. Anyone taking Sal pawmetto? Here is a pic of my crown and back.. Your thoughts what to do?

Biotin is good for hair growth in that it may improve the quality of existing hair but it will not grown any new hair. Saw palmetto is arguably a natural substitute for propecia in that it may also block dht but there is no need to take both.

I use Biotin shampoo and also ingest it in capsules and it nourishes the hairs, but as pointed out before, does not stop DHT from its aging action.

Default herbal hair loss remedies

i would suddest a daily intake of rosemary tea or nettle tea. Equisetum arvense (field horsetail), Avena sativa (oats) and Echinacea are effective in combating hair loss and nourishing hair follicles. Visit an herbalist first before deciding on these treatments.

Yes, green and black tea are excellent anti-aging drinks.

If he weren't a client you should have said: "No $hit Sherlock! Did you learn how to spot it at medical school?!" lol
