I’ve been having my hair colored for the past 20 years, and I’ve tried everything under the sun to get my locks to a respectable looking state but unfortunately, have been unsuccessful. Yes, there are hair masks and keratin-infused “miracle” products out there that have, for the most part, made my hair feel a bit softer afterwards but after shampooing, it’s back to square one again: my locks lack hydration and shine, and I seriously needed to revive my mane—stat.
I had read a while back that biotin (or vitamin B7) is highly effective in restoring skin, nails, and hair back to life. But because biotin is a vitamin that is in water-soluble form, the body can’t store it. This means that biotin must be ingested as a supplement (or through a proper diet) in order for you to see the effects.
I started taking Nature’s Bounty’s Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies three weeks ago, and I can honestly say that I’ve seen a difference in the quality of my hair, skin, and nails. I didn’t see results right away, though. After a week of taking the supplements (they’re SUPER yummy, by the way), my hair was still on the brittle side, and my skin looked the same. I couldn’t tell if my nails were in better condition since I was wearing nail polish. But a little after the second week, the first noticeable change was that my hair was so much easier to comb. In the past, my hair was prone to tangling since it was so dry and damaged. Today, I can safely say that it’s much more manageable, and the shine is back. As for my skin, it seems to be more hydrated (I’m usually on the dry side). My nail color hasn’t chipped yet—that’s a good sign! It means that my nails aren’t brittle.
I’m happy with the results, and I give this supplement a 5/5! It will change the quality of your skin, hair, and nails after two weeks, and a great plus is that it’s easy to consume. Just pop two in your mouth, and you’re good to go!
