Biotin + Folic Acid: My Secret to Hair Growth

Disclaimer: I am not a doctor. This is a regime that worked for me. Please consult your physician before adding any supplements to your diet. 

You may recall last January when I chopped my hair off. While I loved it at first, I soon regretted the decision. I let it grow out some and did the a-line look. This served me well until about August. I then decided to cut my hair to all one length and grow it back out. Unfortunately, my hair grows at a snail's pace.

I'm sure most of you have heard about using Biotin to help with hair growth. I had done it in the past and it helped (but no better than taking a multivitamin). One day, I stumbled upon YouTuber, tiffanyespinosa, talking about combining Folic Acid with Biotin to achieve results. Since it worked out well for her, I decided to try it myself. I picked up a bottle of each at Dollar General for less than $10.


It took a few months for me to notice any changes. In about November, all of the sudden it was BAM! long. People started to comment on how long my hair had gotten. The day where I no longer needed a bobby pin to hold up fly aways when I had my hair pulled up was a good one.


A bonus to the regime is what it does for nails, too! They grew so much faster, were stronger and looked quite healthy. 

Overall, combining Biotin and Folic acid has been the best way for me to grow out my hair. I have never had such quick results. Now that I'm to a length I like, I'm back to taking just a multivitamin. However, I'm definitely recommending this quick fix to anyone out there who is needing long locks fast.

What do you do to grow your hair out?
