Does Biotin Really Work?


By now, I’m sure many of you have heard about biotin through friends or family taking it, or maybe you’re taking it yourself! We thought we would look in a little further to see if biotin really does work.

As some of you might know, keratin is a basic protein that makes up your hair, skin, and nails. It has been proven that biotin improves your body’s keratin infrastructure. But beyond that, there isn’t any scientific research to explain the role biotin has in hair growth or skincare.

It has been said that it helps hair and nails to grow stronger and creates more hair. However,  as our founder, Nicole, has always preached, a major contributing factor to hair growth is blood circulation and having a clean and healthy follicle. There is no evidence that biotin does either of those things, BUT if someone is deficient in biotin, it can help to strengthen the existing hair, therefore stopping breakage and helping it grow longer.

Biotin, which is a form of Vitamin B, is a water-soluble vitamin, so any extra biotin that your body doesn’t need will be flushed out through your urine. The technology surrounding hair growth has come a long way since biotin became popular in recent years. There are far superior ingredients to strengthen hair, not to mention the technology of product lines like Genesis to stop hair fall, hydrate the scalp and promote actual stronger hair to grow!

To conclude, biotin has no scientifically proven results of making more hair grow, although the basics behind it make sense – if you are lacking biotin, then taking a supplement to replenish it could aid in making your hair stronger but won’t grow your hair.

Here are some product lines that we recommend to grow your hair longer and stronger!

Genesis:  STOP hair fall and wake up dormant cells and grow more hair

Extentioniste: STOP breakage, strengthen hair to grow longer and grow stronger hair from follicle
